Earlier this week, Sony put out a giant PlayStation 4 FAQ revealing details about what the system can and can’t do. Three of the things it can’t do are play audio CDs, MP3s, or act as a media server. Xbox One can do two of three, Microsoft confirmed to The Penny Arcade Report.
Xbox One can’t play MP3s, but it can act as a media server and supports audio CDs. You’ll be able to stream media content to Xbox One using any Play To supported device, like Window 7, 8, or 8.1 PCs and Windows Phones.
You can listen to your own music in-game with an Xbox Music subscription, similar to how you’ll need Music Unlimted to do the same on PlayStation 4.
Though, all hope might not be lost for MP3 files and DLNA streaming on PlayStation 4. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, after hearing fans’ concerns, brought the issue to the PlayStation 4 development team.
