In a recent interview Mr Yoshida said they never intended not to support MP3 and CD, these features weren’t seen important enough for release date. Yoshida said it was a surprise to see such a demand for these features and as a result MP3 and CD Support is now in development earlier than intended.

“The biggest surprise for us all internally at Sony was there are so many people who passionately reacted to our announcement that there’s no MP3 support or CD support on day one,” he said. “It’s not like we actively decided ‘let’s not do this feature so people will have to subscribe to Music Unlimited.

“The focus has been more on the game features. Some of the features we wanted but we couldn’t get in on day one. We didn’t really think about MP3 or CD. We thought ‘we’re going to do that eventually.’… It caught us off-guard.

“People don’t really talk about these features, right? Some people get really mad and [say] ‘I’ll cancel my pre-order!’ So as we speak, people in Japan – the system guys – are discussing when we can put these features in.”

    He Said MP3 and DLNA Support. Not CD support.
    it will never support CDs. Because the bluray drive doesn’t support reading CDs. I think you confused CD with DLNA

    I was about to say “yea boi” before I read bball comment. Are you sure it will do CD’s too? Why can’t Blu-Ray read CD? Thats retarded its just audio. I thought Blu-Ray read everything. The drive in the PS3 is Blu-ray so what the hell you talking about bball?

    Anyway I haven’t really been focused on PS4′s media play back and I guess I’m being foolish to think now that PS4 will have PS3′s video playback compatibility. It would be stupid for SONY to have a much more powerful and capable machine out there and it can’t out perform its predecessor in every way.
