well we got no entertainment, and no games so far

You must be from the same idiot pool that says there are no games for Vita, yet 350 are available for the US out of the total 400+ games available worldwide... "No games".... Yea, we call that logical fallacy. 

 

 

and dont worry about the fanboys that keep regurgitating "be patient" motto

 

they will come up with something else to defend their ego and pride of choosing their favorite console from sony, fanboyism 101

trolling 101 - saying the opposite of everyone else who already knows the facts.

Can you program a fully fledged OS with a functional UI with ZERO bugs, design a complex piece of hardware using new architectures and instruction sets which are co-developed by game developers and then be able to please everybody at the same time? Yes? Then I dare you to do better. Its not as easy as you think. Take a few computer science classes and you'll understand just how difficult it can be to even make a 'simple' app for iOS and Android. 

The fact is... You don't understand, and you feel ENTITLED to something that was NEVER MARKETED TO CONTAIN. So you took to twitter.... Sony responded and said 'Sorry, we made a mistake, it was  an afterthought. We're working on getting it to you ASAP." 

You're part of the NOW generation..... Those who take after Veruca Salt..

To be honest: DLNA Streaming is the most needed feature my GAMING console needs. Does anyone have a clue on how much longer we have to wait?

 

I'm already thinking of selling my PS4 again... Yepp. I'm not very patient.

Kinda like saying a car's main purpose is for driving so it doesn't need a stereo when you can just use your phone to play music.

To be fair people have been paitent enough.

 

The first thing they said was available after launch. It's after launch. It was after launch last month. Well 1 month and many days ago now.

 

Then they said second update. It already happened. They did not say second major update. They said second update.

 

I don't even know what DLNA even is and I still want it for the poor souls who do know what it is. I know how it feels I'm waiting for the PS4 to support PVR's and to support my iPOD.

DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) is actually a Sony creation...

 

"DLNA is a non-profit collaborative trade organization established by Sony in June 2003, that is responsible for defining interoperability guidelines to enable sharing of digital media between multimedia devices.[3] These guidelines are built upon existing public standards, but the guidelines themselves are private (available for a fee). These guidelines specify a set of restricted ways of using the standards to achieve interoperability and include almost no free audio formats and only the most common (free or otherwise) video formats, meaning that DLNA servers generally have to support transcoding in order to produce a useful service.[4]

DLNA uses Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) for media management, discovery and control.[5] UPnP defines the type of device that DLNA supports ("server", "renderer", "controller") and the mechanisms for accessing media over a network. The DLNA guidelines then apply a layer of restrictions over the types of media file format, encodings and resolutions that a device must support.

As of February 2013,[6] over 18,000 different device models (exept the PS4) have obtained "DLNA Certified" status, indicated by a logo on their packaging and confirming their interoperability with other devices.[7] It was estimated that by 2010 more than 440 million DLNA-certified devices, from digital cameras to game consoles and TVs, were installed in users' homes.[8]"

Concidering it is a Sony product, it only makes sence that the PS4 SHOULD! have come with DLNA by default.

Yeah right. They should do it right from the start without serious bugs. I'm just afraid they do not implement it at all. I never saw or found an official statement from Sony that they WILL support DLNA. Only that they think of adding it, right? 

Right now I'm just keeping my PS3 because of the DLNA support. I'd rather sell it because it still has 9 months of service warranty Smiley Wink

Technically, 12:01am Eastern Standard Time on November 15th, 2013, was 'after launch'.

 

Here is the laundry list of 'missing' features for the PS4, all of which I advocate and want (please note that I am purposefully not including tweaks to existing features) :

  • DLNA & MP3 support
  • External HDMI capture support
  • Expanded headset support

Whatever the next firmware update includes, at least one of these features listed above will likely be missing, and I seriously doubt that headset support will be one of them. When these features are implemented, I want them implemented right, not 'right now'.

 

The PS3 didn't have DLNA support for over eight months, and I don't think we'll have to wait that long. I understand the argument that the PS3 supports DLNA, so the PS4 should start with that featureset and build, but am not willing to have lost any of the functionality present in the current build of the PS4 firmware to get it.
