Welcome to PlayStation.Blog Share
Do you have an idea for how to improve the PlayStation experience? If so, Share it! PlayStation.Blog Share is a place to formally submit your best ideas on how we can improve all PlayStation products. It’s also a place where you can discover and vote on other people’s ideas, as well as communicate with us and other PlayStation fans about how to bring great ideas to life. You can only submit one idea per week. Make it count! Click here to see how.
Submission FAQ (Updated 05/20/2014)Q: Why isn't my idea submission showing up? A: All Share idea submissions are first approved by a human operator before they enter the public database. Most likely, your idea submission duplicates or closely resembles a previously approved idea. In that case, vote for the original idea and note any fine distinctions in the comments section. We're also less likely to publish ideas which are particularly unrealistic or unlikely. Q: Why aren’t you taking submissions on PS3, PSP, etc? A: We’ve collated submissions on these topics for nearly four years; with the launch of PS Vita and PS4, we’re focusing the discussion on the future of PlayStation’s products. If you’d like to revisit previously submitted ideas, please visit the archive here. Q: Does PlayStation read the ideas on Share? A: Yes! Share is an important internal resource for SCEA. Q: Why don't you hurry up and implement my idea already? A: Remember that Share is not intended to be a "to-do" list for PlayStation. Rather, it's a public resource and reference point that helps internal SCEA employees survey interest and trends across various topics both large and small. If you feel that your idea deserves attention, the best thing you can do is encourage other users to vote for it and leave comments. Q: Have you ever actually implemented an idea from Share? A: While we don't publicly disclose internal decision-making processes, Share continually tracks "Ideas in Action" - see the current numbers in action in the “Share Community Stats” listed to the right of the page.
The PS4 has amazing hardware. What it lacks is media friendly software. At a minimum we need what the PS3 had [in terms of] video: MP4/AVI. Ideally we’d get 4K-HEVC/MKV/ FLAC support.
Update: We have edited this idea in order to focus on video playback and simplify the voting process. CD audio support is now a separate idea. PS4 currently supports MP3s via USB.
