ps4-hrdware-large19In less than twenty-four hours, the public will have access to Share Play and other features on their PS4. System Software 2.0 is the latest and perhaps most coveted update to the nearly one year old console. Not only will Share Play be a reality, but direct YouTube uploads and playing music from a USB device will be as well.

This also means that we are less than twenty-four hours away from complaining about the PS4 features we still do not have. I, however, will not wait and will point out some of those features now.

  • Inability to play a music CD – not that I ever have any intention to do this but my PS3 and Xbox 360 can do this.
  • DLNA – again, my PS3 and Xbox 360 are capable of playing media without me moving it to a USB device first.
  • Instant on – remember the promise of pressing the power button and instantly being at the home screen or powering the system on and returning to the exact point you left your game at?

I’m sure there are more that I missed. Please feel free to point them out to me as well as any feature you wish were part of the system that may or may not be planned. I for one would like to be able to broadcast to Twitch with the camera feed enabled but not showing on my game play screen, after all Xbox One can do it.

  1. I guess the USB file playing thingy saves on space, since you don’t have to have the files on your console, but I remember when me and my brother discovered that the PS4 couldn’t play CDs we kinda shunned him…
    Still, At least now I can make my home menu the superior colour red!

    1. Well…you still can’t play files from the HDD either. Good to see that they are still workng to add the functionality they promised. It is somewhat sad in a way that it has taken almost a full year to enable some of it.
