Sony is again dragging their feet with OS features. MS already detaield their april update where you can organization your pins on the OS, PS4 desperately needs this, along with many other features like friend notifications, you tube, etc... Why is sony so slow compared to MS?

Agreed, I dont know whats taking them so long to put all these little featues in that most people want.  Unless theyre making one huge patch with everything.. lmao yeah right.

 

Get ready for all the "Its a gaming system whocares about these features" posts.  It gets annoying.  Just because you mmight be happy with the way the PS4 is, not everyone is,  And if you don't let Sony know about it, and keep praising them, things will never get added.

Firmware 1.70 will have HDCP removal for games....

Unlike Xbox one That has a broken HDCP system That requires you to shut the unit down and disconnect from the mains to turn HDCP off.... SCEI will be trying to get the system to be fully automatic....

 

Netflix app PS4 turns HDCP On

 

GT7 turns HDCP off

VUDU app PS4 turns HDCP on

UC4 turns HDCP off

Amazon instant app PS4 turns HDCP on.

 

All with out having to turn the console off...

Microsoft has their own OS and other technological software. Telling Sony to do the same is like telling a pizzaria to make tacos; it's not their strong point. 

 

Also, you are basically saying that the PS4 "desperately" needs things that the Xbox One recently brought for their console. Both consoles are different. Therefore they will have different aspects. This option may seem easier. But it is not something that is deperately needed, unless a majority of users demands for this to be added.

You mean an OS based software company is faster at OS based software than a hardware based company?

While I do agree waiting for the updates IS getting annoying, pointing at microsoft and going "theyre faster" is pointless. The xboxs advantage has always been their OS software. Whereas sonys advantage is building the best hardware.

Eventually Sony will have its OS catch up to microsofts and when it does the only thing that will matter is that the ps4 is a better machine.

This is wHY Crapbix one sees updates so fast. It uses Windows lol. When the OS dies as windows often does. What will these gamers do when they have to send it back ot MS for a re format or what ever else it may need to fix windows issues.

I fully agree that Sony is taking too long with their updates. Microsoft already has implemented many features people have been asking for while Sony is going real slow. I just read that Microsoft is adding Youtube uploading tomorrow to Xbox One which is a huge deal. Sony needs to step it up or Microsoft is going to win this war.
