Video Unlimited Highlights

Drama… So much drama. But all of it is oh so good. Acclaimed film 12 Years A Slave, the epic Season 3 of Game of Thrones and lots more fill this week’s New Release Recap.

12 Years A Slave: Don’t take our word for it, take the Golden Globes and Oscar nominations this film has under its belt as the proof. Not only is it one of the (or arguably THE) most gripping and powerful films of the year, it’s packed with one heck of an all-star cast, including: Benedict Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt, Paul Dano and more.

12 Years A Slave

From acclaimed director Steve McQueen (Shame, Hunger) comes this moving film based on a true story. In the pre-Civil War United States, free citizen Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is abducted and sold into slavery. Through years living as a slave to a vicious plantation owner (Michael Fassbender), Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. It’s only after a chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist that he finds hope to change his life.
Game of Thrones | Season 3: Winter is coming… and so are wildlings, armies and lots of gripping, action- and drama-packed episodes in Season 3. Catch up on the entire season (or watch it all over again) right now, new on PlayStation Store!

Game of Thrones

The Lannisters continue to hold onto King’s Landing, though an uprising in the North threatens the balance of power in the realm. Meanwhile, Robb Stark faces a disaster, an army of wildlings march for the Wall and Dany is finally reunited with her dragons.

    Hi xscp, we completely respect your opinion, but here’s some good info. in case you’ve missed the previous news: http://bit.ly/1a8Qtip on how MP3 & DLNA may be included for future considerations. Our PS4 Dev team plan to look into it.

I don’t know why but I got a year subscription for $12 or $3/month and today I realized that they charged me $9 for just a month. I’m talking about music unlimited.

@6

Last year music unlimited was on sale for plus members 12$/year – 3$/month. Its original subscription fees is 9$/month – 60$/year

I’ll tell you what’s NOT new:

- no PS4 mp3 support
- no PS4 CD support
- no PS4 DLNA support
- no PS4 mp4 support (Yes, I don’t want to stream all my purchased videos)
- no PS4 JPEG support
- no PS4 3D Blu-ray (movies) support
- no PS4 Remote (I want a remote darnit!)

And, yes, I have a PS3 that I love at home. It would be nice though if Sony could fix these glaring issues with the PS4. I love both consoles and their redheaded stepchild Vita as well.

@6 – machinextreme.

You should check your account as most likely the automatic renewal is checked.

You will have to un check it if you no longer want Music Unlimited.

+ GGCAN on February 20th, 2014 at 5:41 am said:

@ 7 – tulaib_100

$9.99 per mth = 120 per year.

The $12 per year was $1 per mth only offered last year.

Music Unlimted team.

On the PS4, not sure if I’m remembering correctly, but weren’t there Album icons beside the song while you listen originally ?

I was using Music Unlimited this week and noticed that when I play a song, no Album cover is displayed; only the song, artist, etc.

Was this removed due to Music Unlimited not be stable at launch on the PS4 ?

I know on the Vita, PC and PS3 that the album icons are displayed.

thanks,

i like when they say they where making it in the next firmware update that you can play your mp3 and audio cds again but no they are still milking this crap

+ honkayjeezus on February 20th, 2014 at 11:39 am said:

Where is mp3 and DLNA for PS4? In case Sony hasn’t noticed it, the Music Unlimited service is terrible.

Yoshida was saying before launch that the update would be considered, it isn’t a huge firmware update. I have a TV that can play music and video via USB.

+ SpooNManX on February 20th, 2014 at 1:51 pm said:

There will NEVER be mp3 or DNLA support as long as Music Unlimited exists. Why would anyone spend $120 a year to play Sony’s selection of music when you could play YOUR music for free?!

Of course they don’t want to make people angry so they will continue to “Look into this option” for the remaining life of the PS4.. just as they were looking into the possibility of Cross-System Chat… how did that work out for you??

I own the PS4 and think it’s a pretty average system so far… lots of rehashes (Tomb Raider, Rayman, Flower) as well as games with minor difference between the PS3 & PS4 version… seeing how I have to connect my PS3 to play music, videos, and photos it seems hardly worth owning a PS4 right now.

As a happy paying customer (check my library) here are a few things I would like to see that would pull many more people over to your services, and make SEN, PSN, PS4, and Sony better, and make me a much happier paying customer;

Music Unlimited
—-offline mode
—-MP3/AAC support so I can use the CD’s I own that are not on MU
—-Buy option for those that prefer not to have subscriptions
—-DLNA

Video Unlimited
—-BETTER FREAKING ORGANIZATION, FOR THE LOVE OF OUR SANITY
—-High bite rate download option (basically the blu-ray file for download)
—-3D Playback support
—-4K Films streaming + high bit rate download
—-Music Videos (Vidzone is great, but I would like full HD version, and local storage)
—-Subscription option for those that prefer that method.
—-DLNA

I love both of these apps, and the flawless integration of them on the PS4 OS. With the addition of these options, I think Sony would be the undisputed King of Digital Content and services.

@17 You are judging a system that released 90 and change days ago to not have that many games yet? Play PS3 games while PS4 games come out. It’s not a “must buy” system until 2-3 years in, any early adopter who has had a system since day 1 knows that. It was like that with.. every video game system ever.


21

+ SpooNManX on February 20th, 2014 at 9:57 pm said:

@20: I disagree.
As an owner of just about every US system since the Atari VCS I have had quite a lot of systems that were “must buy” at launch.
N64 with Super Mario 64 (killer app), SNES with Super Mario World, F-Zero, Pilot Wings. The Xbox with Halo, etc..

My point was it that it’s crazy to release a console in 2014 that can’t play mp3′s. It’s nonsense and the only viable reason why it doesn’t is because Sony wants to sell Music Unlimited accounts.
