ps4-mp3-dlnaWhen Sony first announced the PS4 console, not too many people were happy with the fact that the Sony PS4 is unable to support playing audio CDs in its disc player. Apart from that, it would also be unable to support the playback of MP3 files or DLNA streaming media features. Well, we are pleased to announce that a top Sony PlayStation executive has shared that support for all the above mentioned features will eventually make it in the form of a future PS4 software update.

Over a chat via the Giant Bomb podcast, Sony PlayStation Worldwide Studios leader Shuhei Yoshida did share that the company did not really expect the degree of online backlash it received because of the missing features, sharing, “We didn’t really think about MP3 or DLNA. We always thought that we’re going to do that eventually – we’ve been doing it with all the [PlayStation] products. So it caught us off guard.”

Unfortunately, there is no specific timetable as to when the software update will be released. As for Microsoft’s Xbox One, it will already support audio CDs and DLNA right out of the box, whereas MP3 support is limited at the moment to streaming those files from a Windows 8/8.1 PC.
