ps4 browser and controller options, lack of features! were is the greatness?

6 replies 256 views Edited Dec 2, 2013

I went from xbox 360 to ps4 so I could enjoy great games by naughty dog and gran tursimo!

And I feel like I took a huge leap back. Were are all these awsome features? If it was not for the games I would trade up for a xbox one!

 

You have to sign into facebook to upload videos but no facebook app or youtube app?

 

You have to pay money to listen to music unlimited? Were is online radio, I heart and Pandora?

 

Im constantly pushing the touchpad when I hit the options button why not nestle the buttons on either side of the light bar and shorten the lightbar so its not glaring on my TV. Out of the way easily accessible. Share and option buttons..

what **bleep** thought it would be a good idea to place 1 button beside another button and not raise said button at least?

 

Browser does not support any video formats no flash ,MPEG 4s, avi's. They say no support for flash ever. SWF is everywhere youtube,porn sites, and various other sites if you don't know Sony SWF are a huge portion of videos on the web!.

Not to mention how bland mundane confusing and **bleep** the browser is in the first place. if feels like a bowser from windows 95.

 

ATM the only thing ps4 has going for it is the 1080p games, and 2 free games a month..............................................Were is this greatness I was suppost to be getting?

If you owned a PS3, or 360 for that matter, at launch neither console had half of the features they have now.

If people had a little thing called "patience", updates will improve BOTH (PS4/Xbox1) consoles.

Amen Kisuma.....

R3Drum these features will be there. 

I am also going to assume you did absolutly no reaserch before your purchase? They have already said more apps are coming.

Um unless they redesign the controller those issues will always be there

 

Sony confirmed they have no intention to support flash ever on there browser!

 

 

Shouldn't basic features be there from the beginning?

 

a new console is suppost to be an upgrade all around and not feel like a step back right?

1. I don't own a PS4 or DS4, But I am positive I could adjust to the controller layout.

2. My phone doesn't support flash, big deal.

3. Even Shuhei himself said they (Sony) wanted to get games out the door first, everything else will come later.

4. I have the patience and knowledge to understand that these features are not made out of thin air, it takes time.

I could not hit those share and option buttons for the life of me the first few days, I have big hands.

 

But after a week I got used to it and now it is becoming second nature.

 

We have all played with the last gen stuff for a long time, a learning curve should be expected and lack of mastery after only 2 weeks max of having the thing is not exactly unexpected. Some gamers HATE having to learn new things, I don't know why.

 

As far as the features stuff, its been rehashed more than one would think is possible in two short weeks so I am not even going to bother.

Seems to me some people are just trolling or complaining to complain. Quit complaining and maybe do something with your console like hmmmm GAME!! I understand theirs things people would like on the ps4 n like everyone says they will come. Want music? Turn your radio on behind u while u play...good gosh.....watch videos or whatever on your PC. Tired of all the constant complaining when the ps4 as it is right now is a awesome fast gaming console. That still streams movies and a few apps. I'm reminded what a improvement ps4 is every time I log into my ps3. U seemlessly can jump in and out of games, put system in standby n come back. Face recognition, instantly stream gameplay, beautiful graphics and some cool features still to come. Enjoy this new gen system all the bell and whistles will come in due time!
