Headline Of The Week
With release day edging ever closer, Sony have this week put together an ultimate FAQ of features the PlayStation 4 will incorporate – and it may appear to some to be a step back somewhat. Despite claims that the new console will offer 10 times the power of a PS3, at launch the PS4 will not support MP3’s or audio CD’s, and the ‘Share’ feature allowing gamers to upload clips of their gaming exploits will not be supported by YouTube (a feature also lacking on the Xbox One).
Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has responded to criticism on Twitter hinting at possible changes in the future:
It is worth noting that several of the features that are currently available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 have been added post launch by multiple patches and software updates, so we might see the return of MP3 support et all soon enough. In the meantime, no custom FIFA soundtracks for you!
