What features would you all like to see added in the next PS4 firmware update?

 

Some of the features that have been confirmed to be coming in a future firmware update are:

 

  • Sony Pulse Elite Headset Support( I think also bluetooth headsets in general too?)
  • MP3 Support
  • DLNA Support
  • Suspend/resume mode
  • Sharing videos to YouTube

If there are others that I missed let me know.

 

What I would like to see added are:

 

  • Ability to pause downloads
  • Be able to follow a channel and or user right from the streaming page when watching on PS4.
  • Video quality of the live streams increased when watching on PS4.

Thats all I can think of right now.

You pretty much listed everything I would like to see.

Off the top of my head, I can also think of a few OS/UI fixes id like to see, such as adding sorting/filtering options in the Ps store.

Also, allow us to disable the activity feed or at least give us control over what gets displayed.

For a feature that is highly unlikely, id like to have the ability to use external storage.

My wish list:

1) Some sort of interface for if a patch is installing.  You can see patch downloads as they go, but the actual install isn't there.  Also they keep note of the install progress in the downloads, doesn't make sense.

2) Not sure if it was a Killzone only thing or what, but there was a patch for it.  It told me there was a patch and let me play anyways.  However I didn't know if it was actually getting the patch, if the patch was going to install, or what.  But having some sort of visual patch system (ie: patch for X is downloading),  also maybe a notification that an install is going.

3) I would like the option to pin/unpin things from the main bar.  

ie) Remove music/movies unlimited.   Make netflix a tile not a sub tile, that sort of thing.

I have DLNA built into my new TV so streaming support isn't that important to me.  Also, external storage for game installs via USB would be awesome.

It is still kind of confusing, I couldn't tell if it was downloading, installing, etc.  There was no in-game indication or even system notification.

There should be a PlayStation 2 emulator, since there wasn't in the PS3.

The friends list could seriously use some sorting/filtering options.

They need to organize the bottom section of the UI. Let us create folders or sort by categories or something.

I've heard Bluetooth chat support will be added in December specifically around the 15th of the month.

The original PS3 models had PS2 support, but it was removed in later models to reduce the price. :)

There was 2 versions.   The original PS3's has the Emotion Engine chip, so it could do native ps2 emulation.  To reduce the costs they stopped including the chip, and did software emulation.   They eventually removed it as it just didn't work as well.

This, or having ability to pin/unpin the apps that show, and ability to make hidden/sub apps appear on main bar.

Interesting! :) Didn't realize they tried to emulate it after removing the chip.
