Playstation 4 and 4 Steps back…

 

So I just found out that the Playstation 4 won’t have  DLNA support; which I’ve been using on the Xbox 360 with my Samsung Note 2 frequently (I haven’t touched my Playstation 3 since January). No MP3 support, no CD playback support and out of the box won’t support Blu-Ray playback, multiplayer as well as all the other features touted for this ‘next-gen’ console till you download a 300mb patch…?!  Oh and apparently no external drive support. Even the Xbox 360 recently gave in towards this!

Seriously this is something that I could have seen Microsoft do, pull back and fix it. Sony just made their console ‘next-gen’ as in for the other generation that wasn’t born when the Playstation 3 was released.

At $399 I expect this thing to be plugged in and do what it is touted to do and to improve on the features from its predecessors not get rid of them. I was leaning on purchasing a Playstation 4 in late 2014. …Whenever game publishers stop publishing on Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 or I finish play my game queue, which ever comes first.

But with this development I’m not sure. True it’ll be almost a year till I pull the trigger on the either an Xbox One or Playstation 4 but it’s looking like I’ll know pretty soon where I’ll lean to.
