19w ago - Following up on the previous PS4 DLNA rumors, today Sony hinted on PlayStation 4 DLNA / Multimedia and Suspend / Resume features in their PS4 Firmware 2.00 Update slated for Fall 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: Yesterday at Gamescom 2014, Sony announced a major PlayStation 4 firmware v2.00.

It will arrive in Fall 2014 with wide range of fan requested features such as ability to share gameplay videos on YouTube, Share Play feature which allows online co-op gameplay of games even if your friend doesn't have a copy of the game in question and remote controlling PlayStation 4 titles over Internet.

The announcement was made on PlayStation Blog, however no details were shared about the Suspend/resume and DLNA/multimedia and other important features. PlayStation 4 owners are not happy with this attitude of Sony and has let their frustration reach Sony via comment section on PS Blog.

Scott McCarthy, Director, Product Planning & Software Innovation, SCEA has hinted that other fan requested features such as "Suspend/resume and DLNA/multimedia" might also arrive with PS4 firmware v2.00.

When user "Beckerjr" slammed Sony for not caring about PlayStation fan feedback and just concentrating on social media features. Scott hinted there are more things coming with PS4 firmware 2.00 and Sony will talk about it closer to launch.

Beckerjr: "Sony asks for feedback all the time and then just ignores it with all of this endless share/Twitch/streaming stuff they are so focused on. Fixing the main UI so it doesn't just become and endlessly growing line of icons. Suspend/resume and DLNA/multimedia features the 8 year old PS3 can do. I could go on for a long time with things the PS4 desperately needs but Sony seems to only care about social media junk."

When will Sony get off this freaking social fixation they have and work on the fundamentals of the system?"

Scott: "Guys, we really are hearing you. Doing anything for the PS4 means doing it right. I am glad you have the high-class issue of a long list of icons. That means you have a lot to do on your PS4! Organizing content is certainly on the roadmap. We do have "More to Come" (hint: in the title of the post) and will be talking about more details as we get closer to the launch of 2.0."

When another user named "Zookey" asked to consider these features as well for Playstation 4: "External HDD Support, MP3/Video File Support, Game Folder and Allow Sub-Accounts to use Share Upload Features".

Scott replied: "Thanks Zookey – PS agrees those are suggestions to pay close attention to."

So there you have it folks, a clear hint that Suspend/resume, DLNA/multimedia feature might arrive with PS4 firmware firmware v2.00 in Fall 2014. Tell us in the comment section below what other feature you want to see?

It would be nice if the 'System software stability during use of some features has been improved.' in some of the release notes of firmware updates actually did something for the unstable features. I still have problems connecting to certain streamers twitch stream and/or chat.

It would also be nice to access a live stream from the friends list.

But first on my list would be DNLA/Video file playing.

I would like for better access to streams from your friends, i.e. from the friends list. Currently I sometimes can't even find the stream in the UI while on my laptop I can see that he is streaming.

Also this Twitch follow button, DNLA, Youtube and my promised DriveClub PS+.
