95w ago - Following up on yesterday's confirmation of PlayStation 4 video game pricing, today Sony CEO Andrew House also confirmed that the PS4 won't support CD and SACD (Super Audio CD) formats.

To quote from ReijiAsakura's Tweet (via twitter.com/ReijiAsakura/status/304699622717267968):

"ソニー・コンピュータ・エンターテンイメントのアンドリュー・ハウス氏、インタビュー終わり。まずプレイステーション4ではSACD、CDはサポー トしません。

Andrew House said PS4 does not support CD and SACD in interview.

So no CD music ripping."

Those seeking to rip disc audio tracks will have to use Sony's Music Unlimited service.

You mean like releasing a new system as the old one has no hope of ever being re-secured? Yeah, I have no doubt the PS4 is their way, at least in part, of getting users to willingly upgrade their old compromised systems for a new secure system.

Does anyone else feel like Sony isn't really making new things but just re-vamping their old stuff in new ways?

With the PS4 basically containing PC hardware, I wonder how long until we see homemade clones? Maybe build-your-own Dev/Test units?

because you pay a lot of money on a crappy locked console where sony decides what will be unlocked and what will be locked out, i would like everything unlocked, come on get real, of course it can.

just wait till it gets hacked.
