One more thing: Seeing some questions re: Xbox One & support for CDs, MP3, DNLA etc. I'll track those answers down.— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) October 30, 2013
Sony announced that the PS4 will not be capable of playing your home music collection at launch. No CDs, no MP3s, nothing except their Music Unlimited service.
Weeks away from launch and the Xbox One team doesn’t know if they’re in the same boat.1
I suspect that using game consoles for music streaming isn’t as popular as you may be led to believe. It’s nice to have. I don’t see the sense of removing it, but I rarely use it.
Now video playback…that’s another story.
