plastation 4 will not be able to play mp3s or any cds . also the system will not be able to support external hard drives. ok the first thing i think that is unfair that sony is making me use thier service i listen to alot of local bands and un mainstream music wich i know they dont have on thier service i love custum soundracks especialy since i play alot of fighting games like streetfighter and i love the ability to listen to my music mixed in the backround of the game sony can you please change this i know its as simple as doing an update for the fact its a bluray player hardware wise it should play blurays, dvds, and cds, so that means its a software lock. Then on the fact that it will not support external harddrives means you have got to let me redownload something i bought again like if i buy an episode of dexter i own that right but i need to delete it from my ps4 or my harddrive gets corrupted i need to redownload it again as current policys stand if i buy something on your network like that you tell me i have to back up to an external drive so how am i gonna do that if the ps4 dosent allow external hardrives unless sony allows me to redownload movies or tv shows or videos again that i already own and am not capped on how many times i want to download to my vita or ps3 or even ps4 so lets let sony know so they can make the ps4 the perfect system . also you will not be able to stream movies videos or mp3s or anything from home network pc like the ps3
the majority of things that are lacking in the PS4 at launch, are the same things the PS3 did not have at launch either.
The PS4 is a completely new ecosystem and hardware architecture.
Its not that easy to have something that was there before, from a different architecture and hardware to something completely different and totally unrelated to the previous.
PC's don't have that problem... because well, they havent changed much in the grand scheme of things.
You don't have to buy a next-gen console at launch.... you CAN wait.
