Re: Can we get a new update please 1.8

Jul 13, 2014
Why is it that the games we bought for PlayStation 3 such as PSN games or PlayStation 2 games such as GTA San Andreas, why can't we use and play those games on ps4 nor use USB to watch our own movies can we please get that patch cause PlayStation Now is nothing but buying boring games that we don't like and honestly I feel I've wasted my money buying a PlayStation 4 cause these are that have should've already been compatible on the system.

Because the PS4 does not have the hardware needed, namely the Graphics Synthesizer and the Cell processor, that would be needed to render PS3, and it doesn't have the Emotion Engine needed for PS2 games. There's no "patch" for that. As for USB movies, try using a file format that is compatible.

As of now the ps4 still can't use USB storage to its full extent.. Only use it to export stuff that was captured by the share function.

Sorry to be the bad guy here, but sony did put out updates to the ps3 every friday..

Then they went to every other week, then monthly, then every other month, then when they felt like it.

I have been with sony since the start, and i'm surprised i'm the only one that remembers this....

I agree. I've had PS4 since launch and at first I was very impatient for firmware updates. Anyone who says it doesn't need anything more has a poor opinion. The PS4 was rushed out, unfinished, to beat X1's release, period. Sony is most likely looking into everything we've been asking for, they are just taking their sweet time. After 9 months of very minor updates and a near communication blackout from Sony, I am trying to be alittle more patient with them. I just wish they would be more vocal about what they are doing for us. I'm sure they have their reasons, but I sure as hell wouldn't be mad if they gave us a weekly developer's blog, updating and reassuring us that they are working on specific features for future updates. I wouldn't even hold it against them if they never completed something they said they were working on, because at least I would know that they tried...

 

For Examples:

"7/14/14 - We are currently working on the programming needed to bring our loyal PS4 customers a music player and USB import of supported files. This is in development with no known release date. The programming of this has been very difficult, please be patient."

 

"7/21/14 - We have successfully completed the programming necessary to enable friend login/logoff notifications to the PS4! It will be added to our next major firmware update. We cannot confirm a release date right now, but rest assured, the feature is complete and will come soon!

 

Confirmed Features for Next Firmware Update:

- Friend Login/Logoff Notifications(Added on 7/21/14)

- UI Background Customization(Added on 7/7/14)

- Minor Stability & Bug Fixes

 

- Please note that we do not have any current release date for firmware updates. The Developer's Blog is only meant to keep our customers up to date on what we are working on. Nothing mentioned in the Blog is 100% confirmed as some things don't always work out. Thank you for being patient with us as we bring you new features to enjoy on our PS4 console."

You should pitch this to sony..

Doubt they will do it because they hate communication with anyone.

But hey it doesn't hurt to try..

Haha, I know. Too bad I have no idea how to pitch anything to them, like you said, they hate communicating with anyone. That's why I come here to vent my ideas and complaints to you guys, hoping that maybe one of you knows how to relay messages. From what I've heard they don't even check these forums.

All i can say is some sony employees and game devs read the forums.
