Trim the fat

Consoles are more than just gaming devices these days. For better or for worse, they’ve also become entertainment hubs, allowing consumers to Netflix in some films, boot up some MP3s and chuck in some chunkier storage options. The Playstation 4 however, won’t include at least two of those options.

Sony published a list yesterday, called the PS4: The Ultimate FAQ. 160 questions, 160 answers. And not all of them positive. Here’s some of the more relevant information that was shared.

Will users be able to connect an external hard drive to expand storage on PS4?

No, this feature is not supported on PS4.

What entertainment services will be offered at the launch of PS4?

Sony Network Entertainment’s Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited will be available at launch in North America. We will announce other entertainment services that will be available on Day 1 before launch. Check PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation social channels for further news and updates.

Will PS4 be able to automatically download game patches?

Yes, all PS4 users will be able to automatically download and install game patches to their PS4. In addition, PlayStation Plus members will enjoy the ability to have those automatic downloads happen while the system is in standby mode.

Will PS4 support any 3D content, including stereoscopic 3D games?

Technically, PS4 supports 3D gameplay at launch in North America, though no launch titles are currently 3D compatible.

Well bugger. Part of the charm of the Playstation 3 is that I can add some jams and films whenever I want, and having a Sony laptop has further expanded that option for me.

But if you’re desperate to have some One Direction or Taylor Swift singing about their boyfriends (That’s what kids listen to, right?), then you’re going to need to sign up for that online store that Sony is clearly steering consumers towards for your music and movies needs.

Not that it matters locally even, because that content will not be available here anyway, thanks to licensing issues. But at least Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida is aware of the complaints, as he tweeted:

Shuhei 2

And yes, he’s aware of that other problem as well.

Shuhei 1

As for the storage problem, I can see that becoming problematic in the future, when the PS4 expands on that launch library it happen to has. It’s going to be a tight squeeze for next-gen games, even if the hard drive does boast 500GB of space.

Ps3 was a dream for media (apart from mkvs)… The thing that bothers me the most is that this is done purely to force people to use their online content providers. We need to put together a donation page for plex or xmbc developers to develop a full-blown ps4 app.

    In all honesty, 500GB is not a lot, that could disappear very quickly with the patches and installs of games on consoles at the moment.

    Install 5 games at 10 gigs each, then patch them three times in a couple months or weeks, and suddenly up to 60 gigbs of space is gone… not including the OS and the patches for that! O.O

            Money for extra hard drives from Sony. The PS2 had those memory cards (lol 8mb’s, remember when you had to buy a new one, we were all like damn!) and I’m sure Sony made plenty of cash from those. They’d be smart to do that, but with extra 500GB or 1TB hard drives. It’d be what I’d do as a shareholder. Just saying.

            But no, I was smart enough to buy a 250gb, and to date there’s only 1 game I’ve installed on it, and I’ve not noticed any performance difference after doing so. Unless the game specifically requires an install, I don’t think its necessary to be honest.

            October 31, 2013 at 09:46

    BUT if you don’t have internet how will you know to contact Sony to send you a CD by mail to activate your Blu-Ray? Surely you’ll think it’s broken when you get home and the Blu-Ray’s not working?

          Or maybe Blu Ray movies weren’t high on their priorities, and they went to production before adding that bit of software code into the system. It actually does happen.

            No man. With all the love and respect in the world that is bullshit! It’s a damn disc reader. Do you have to phone in and activate your hard drive when you install it on a pc?

          • ToshZA

            October 31, 2013 at 09:38

            No but to play certain formats of movies you need to download codecs. Yes, those are real too. THAT is what the update is for. Its not to make the Blu Ray drive work, its so that it knows how to decode and play the movies themselves. Remember, you can play your launch titles without the update, and they’ll be on Blu Ray discs.

            October 31, 2013 at 09:42

            October 31, 2013 at 09:46

            Not at all, the hardware can play Blu Ray movies at launch, they just need the decoder to be installed.

            All PC’s need codecs man. This is no different.

          • SaintsRowNigri

            October 31, 2013 at 09:43

            Dude, if I wanted to watch some scabby porn on my PS4 and downloaded it in some godforsaken format, then yes, I can understand that I would need codecs. But from what I gather based on @pieterkruger:disqus s comments the Blu Ray player/disc will not read Blu-Ray movies?
            Or am I wrong?

          • ToshZA

            October 31, 2013 at 09:47

            No, the hardware can read the disc, but without the decoder (codec) it won’t know what to do with the data on it. That’s all, the software update is there to let the drive know how to interpret data.

            Think of it like 2 different languages, you speak English, but you need to meet and talk business with a Japanese guy who doesn’t speak it. You will need an interpreter. You won’t just be able to understand Japanese because you suddenly need to.

            October 31, 2013 at 09:51

            No, but you can play games on your Blu Ray Discs (which all PS4 games come on) without connecting to the internet. So, the hardware works.

            Please understand, that without codecs I can’t watch MP4’s or DivX videos on my PC. This is the same thing. The hardware can, it just needs a bit of software installed to do the same.

          • SaintsRowNigri

            October 31, 2013 at 09:55

            Tosh, you are being an idiot. (an I say this with love) A PS4 is not a PC. It is a console. It is a thing t hat is meant to work out the box. I plug it in, it needs to do what it must. Play games and play Blu-ray movies if it states that it can do that on the box.
            If it cannot do that, if I need to install anything before I can use it then it is broken…

          • ToshZA

            October 31, 2013 at 10:02

            Its not broken dude. Please see where I’m coming from. I won’t watch Blu Ray movies. Just because it uses a Blu Ray drive doesn’t mean it has to. Its a gaming console, and the games work just fine without the update. I don’t need that bullshit fluff to play my games. That’s my point here. Its not broken. You’re saying you are going to buy a PS4 to watch movies on? Is that correct? Seriously, yes, they didn’t install a codec for their production line, and yes it was an oversight – but its not broken and its really NOT A BIG DEAL. Buy your PS4 and play games. Don’t connect to the internet, and you know what? This weird and amazing thing will happen. Your broken console will play the games as advertised.

          • SaintsRowNigri

            October 31, 2013 at 10:09

            Newsflash: I bought my PS3 for gaming and the fact that I can watch Blu-Ray movies on it. That way, I can squeal with glee when I watch Serenity and the Expendables in my cave whilst my fiancé watches Good Wife in the living room.
            So why can I not expect the same from the PS 4? Out of the box?

            October 31, 2013 at 10:12

            Hey, I hear you. But I honestly don’t know why a 300mb update is such a big issue just for the movie thing. I don’t see how its a broken console when a small update will enable you to do that which you intend to. 300mbs is less than a person uses on their phone in a month, so its not a big deal.

            I’m sorry man, I know I’m pushing buttons, but I can’t see the big fuss over such a small thing. And to be clear, I’m not intentionally trying to piss you off.

            Despite my looks, I am not an idiot. That what you mention there is still a broken piece of hardware, or at worst, not working like it should work. In other words, it cannot do one of the basic things it is meant to do, which is play Blu-Ray movies.

          • ToshZA

            October 31, 2013 at 09:52

            The hardware is NOT BROKEN. my god. Its the software that’s the issue. They didn’t put the codecs into the factory production software. So they need to add it post-launch. This was an oversight on their part yes, BUT ITS NOT THE HARDWARE. THEY JUST NEED TO ADD A SMALL BIT OF CODE.

            A Blu Ray player comes with that shit installed because that’s all it needs to do, play Blu Ray movies.

            Wow. So you’re buying you PS4 to watch movies?

            PS4 is a GAMING console. The movies are extra fluff. I won’t watch movies on my PS4. Many people won’t. I don’t give a crap about this Blu Ray movie thing on my GAMING console – because I can stay offline, never connect to the internet, and still play my games. The hardware works as its main function. Your analogy is poor at best.

            If it couldn’t play games without the update (like Xbox720) then yes, your analogy works. But not in this instance.

            You can plug and play your games – which is why you’re buying the console, correct?

            No, I’m trying to argue my point. I see your point, I really really really do. I just think you’re making a mountain out of a mole hill. Its really not a big part of a gaming console. Its a nice extra feature, which they did indeed not install software as they should have, but its not broken its main function.

            I buy a console to play games. That’s what its for. Not movies. So what I’m saying, is that the movie thing is really so insignificant that I can completely ignore it. Because I’ll still be able to play my games.

            I know they fucked up, but its a tiny one, not anywhere near as deal-breaking as you’re making it out to be. This is my point.

    I think the “Will users be able to connect an external hard drive to expand storage on PS4?” is misleading because he probably confused it with being able to download games to an external hard drive, I’m sure you’ll be perfectly able to hook up a 1Tb hard drive with all your movies and porn.

      Nope you won’t. That’s why the whole internet is butthurting today! It won’t even recognise audio cd’s or MP3 files for that matter!

          Not allowed. You need to subscribe to Sony’s online Video and Music streaming services to enjoy either!

    At least Mr Yoshida is listening (unlike a certain Major PR), PS gamers just need to keep the pressure on Sony, and before you know it, WAGNER DURING BATTLEFIELD 4! YAAAAAAHH!!!

      NOT GONNA HAPPEN! They need the monthly subs to their music services etc. badly to make up for selling the PS4 at a loss. Sony Gaming devision just posted huge losses, AGAIN!

      wow. Down-votes everywhere.

      Examples for those of use that do not want to read the full Q&A. What do you think is missing that is also negative?

      Not trolling you at all, by the way, would like to know more. (Like in Starship Troopers)

    Sounds like a Double Cross to me! Microsoft, Sony, & Nintendo have ALL become lazy & greedy IMO. Lets see, kill off backwards compatibility for your legacy titles, insure that all users will have to pay even more $ to get access to things that are already included with previous consoles.

    And they wonder why so many of us are NOT going to upgrade from XBOX 360, PS3, or Wii ?!
