Xbox One supports CD playback and DLNA streaming, PS4 doesn’t

Xbox One vs. PlayStation 4 features by feature 780_wide

Microsoft recently confirmed that Xbox One indeed will support CD playback and will be DLNA compatible. Why is this a good news? Well, that’s because Sony has revealed details on PlayStation 4 features and playing CDs and DLNA compatibility aren’t part of the console’s features.

I could understand PS4 leaving behind the CD playback support, but it really surprises me that DLNA streaming won’t be a supported feature, when Sony back in 2003 was the company that established the standard to stream content between devices.

This is also a good news for gamers, because if you recall, Microsoft has confirmed in the past that Xbox One will not include the Windows Media Center Extender. And now knowing that DLNA will be an option, users will still be able to stream content from a computer, tablet, or phone to the big screen.

In another related topic, PlayStation 4 won’t play MP3 music files, Xbox One won’t allow to import MP3s to the console, but users will be able to use the “Play To” feature in Windows 8.1, 8, and 7 to stream audio files.
