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.”
