DLNA is usually only in Smart TV's...  DLNA devices consist of: Game Consoles such as 360, PS3, PC's, Smart Phones, Apple TV, Roku, things of of that nature.  

 

That share file you created on your PC, guess what, that's DLNA enabled...  You could download Plex Media Server, give Plex access to the folder, and when you turn on your PS3... You will see your content,,,  You my friend, have been living in modern times, the whole time and didn't even know it...    :D

Big +1 for Plex, super convenient for sharing media.  My cable uses one of the newer "central DVR's" that feed the whole house and it picks up Plex automatically, can stream content to any TV, computer or mobile device in the house, really handy.  Rather surprised the PS4 isn't going to support this, especially since the PS3 did.  Wonder if it's an antipiracy move, considering Sony's in the movie biz and all.

Microsoft and Sony should have released their consoles next year.  As a consumer, this puts me off both companies (the Xbox One 180 and now this + Blu Ray update).

 

They are not ready.  They should have released these things next year.

Had a very good discussion w the PS4 Dev team today. We're happy & appreciative to learn so many people use and like PS3's media features.


Maybe they're considering it now.

That should be filed under "no ######".

DLNA is not a "sony tech" because it is based on UPnP which IIRC is an industry group. UPnP itself is mostly intel or Microsoft stuff.

 

It uses UPnP, but DLNA guidelines were established by Sony.

Interesting.  Personally have never used the media functionality outside of copying a movie to a usb stick and playing it from XMB but it is confusing as to why they went backwards feature wise.

I hope so, I was feeling let down by this, all my movies and music is stored on a usb connected external drive

(personal preference seeing as the media server on the ps3 isn't that great)

I hope they reverse these choices as well.  A Sony 180 is what we need at this point. 

 

Although I wonder if its too late to make it before launch.  With Sony and MS scrambling to just get their OS finished, its probably too late to add more features. 

 

This whole thing does support those that will not be buying a console at launch though.

Yup, it does seem to be the start of something farcical, they way the launch is getting handled.
(Or maybe I'm just reading too much into the situation)
