Just a few thoughts:
I've never used my PS3 or XBOX as a DLNA responder.. because they frankly suck badly at it. Then Again, Sam knows I use Media Center everywhere, so MCX is important to me, but Sony is not my primary video watching tool. The same goes with CDAudio & MP3.. I don't do any of that now, so it has almost no impact on me.
These other launch titles have been added: Skylanders, Super Motherload, Tiny Brains, and Warframe,
Sony has also said that PSN network titles for the PS4 will also release on launch, though we aren't sure how many as that may be fluid.
Sony still launches with the basic requirements: Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc. and yes, if you want MP3s you can get their service. But damn, most TVs on their own without a PS3/4/XBOX play MP3s.
In regards to the external hard drive, I'm not sure how that's a loss at all. The PS3 doesn't allow saving game data to an external hard drive outside of a backup, and backups are still allowed.... what's more, you have to compare it to the alternatives. The PS4 (like the PS3) allows you to change the internal hard drive for any laptop-design 2.5" HDD or SSD or SHDD. Meanwhile, on the XB1, there is no option to change the hard dive (period).
so it's hard to be up in arms over this.
If they get enough response, I'm sure they could add DLNA down the road, but I can't think of a real compelling reason for them to do so.
The idea about "will my PS3 Blue-Ray remote move on.." doesn't impact me at all. I just bought the PS3 Bluray remote for $18 at walmart, and it's 'eh'.. I assumed this would change, the same way my Panasonic TV remote for my plasma doesn't work with the panasonic older TV at my parents.
Meanwhile, the big news for me was this:
We are continuing the spirit of Instant Game Collection on PS4 and offering our users free content and access to new gameplay experiences that foster stronger social connections and discovery. At the launch of PS4, PS Plus members will have access to Resogun and Contrast for no additional charge. PlayStation Plus will then rotate in a new digital PS4 title every month. For one price, PlayStation Plus members get all of the benefits of PS Plus across all supported platforms.
Two games for free on launch day, and
Will any PlayStation Store content purchased on PS3 or PS Vita systems be transferable to a PS4 system?
In some cases, yes. For example, a selection of popular digital titles including Flower, flOw, Escape Plan and Sound Shapes will be available to purchase on PS4 after launch. Gamers who purchased these titles for the PS3 or PS Vita systems (the PS Vita system only, in the case of Escape Plan) will be able to download the PS4 versions of these titles, some of which feature enhanced graphics or improved features, to their PS4 systems for no additional charge.
Boom. Bought a PSN title on the PS3? Free on the PS4. And Fl0w is one I am really looking forward to on the PS4
