PlayStation 4 won't play Blu-rays or DVDs out of the box

http://www.theverge.com/2013/10/25/5...out-of-the-box





When the PlayStation 4 launches on November 15th, there will be a software update already waiting for new owners and that update is necessary to enjoy some of the console's most basic functions. Chief among these features is the ability to play Blu-ray discs or DVDs, which won't be possible until the update is installed.

You also won't be able to utilize Remote Play, which lets gamers play PS4 games on a PS Vita, while other missing features include the ability to play games as they're being downloaded, recording and uploading gameplay using the console's new sharing features, and being able to use voice chat while playing games with friends. Of course, these features will be available once you install the 300MB update, but for those looking to simply enjoy their shiny new PS4 straightaway, they'll be in for a bit of a wait instead.

Not a big deal. Pretty sure the Wii U had a day one update similar to this, so really, it's gonna be commonplace.

Yeah, it did have a day one update. As will the Xbox One, I believe. Not really a big deal if you have internet, just a little annoying. Pretty big deal if you don't have internet.

Not a big deal at all. Like Ninty said commonplace. Definitely not dropping the ball.

So then this isn't particularly news worthy?
Someone needs to approve this guy's news postings because alot of these stories are kind of pointless.

A 300MB update is hardly "a bit of a wait". The thread title is very misleading, too.

I wouldn't say the news is pointless; I didn't know about it until this thread. It's just not as big a deal as people make it out.

The 'console war' at this point is nothing more than a shit-flinging contest and each company is trying to make the competitor's console sound worse than it actually is. There was actually a big to-do about the One and that, if memory serves, it's UI may have some difficulties with XB Live. The ones giving out the info urged everyone to cancel their preorders on it.

All of it is bullshit, and they're dragging the industry down with the fearmongering.

This is even worse than the people who complain about having to get up and change a game disc.

I figured this would be the best place to post this video since it's spreading like wildfire and people are completely flipping out over it

ReviewTechUSA just posted a massive bombshell of a video today, though I'd take it with the smallest grain of salt possible since it's based entirely on rumors


Honestly wouldn't be surprised if it was true, if I recall before the PS4 reveal there were many rumors saying that Sony was was going to do the same things M$ was gonna do. I'm not trying to defend Sony or anything, but it actually seems kinda smart of them from a business standpoint to have waited wait until the Xbone reveal to see how the DRM would be received
