82w 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.

I agree with staying away from launch model...besides i dont see anything really too groundbreaking in this new model other than the controller changes...it will be interesting to see how the games are in comparison. Right now i love my PS3 and that it is an "All in one" type of unit.

Is it not having old CD compatibility really that bad? You can pretty much buy some antique to rip'em for like 10 bucks, why would someone spend 300+ on a CONSOLE to rip cds?...

So basically Sony is going to make you have to pay just to rip your own audio CD's on your PS4. Now I'm really concerned upon what the full picture will be for PS4 by the time this system reaches release.

This may not be a big deal to others but it is to me since its a feature I've always appreciated. So far the way its looking, players will be still using their PS3's during the PS4's lifecycle just for features that were taken away or charged a certain fee to utilize on the new console.
