PS4 will get MP3 and DLNA support eventually

Yelling on the internet can fix everything

Shuhei Yoshida, Sony’s President of Worldwide Studios, was just on an episode of Giantbomb’s Interview Dumptruck podcast, and he confirmed that the PlayStation 4 will get support for MP3 music and DLNA media streaming after launch.

In Sony’s FAQ for the PlayStation 4 it was revealed that the console would not play back MP3 music, and you wouldn’t be able to use DLNA media streaming. A lot of people weren’t happy about those things, and they made it known. During the interview, Yoshida said that “the biggest surprise for us all internally at Sony was; there were so many people who passionately reacted to our announcement that there’s no MP3 support and DLNA support on day one.”
