anybody here know if the PS4 will support external hard drives on NTFS format? because most of our ripped movies are greater than 4gb now. especially the MKV format. or is it still the same FAT32 format?

well, PS3 media server is still working fine.....

I doubt it. Either they didnt want to license NTFS for the PS3, or MS didnt want to let them....it wasnt really a technical limitation, so the same story will probably be true for the PS4.

There's always a chance it might support NTFS though, we probably wont know until it comes out....although ext3/4 support seems more likely to me.

Unfortunately Sony can't compete if they don't charge for their multiplayer either. The PS4 will require people to pay for PS+ to play multiplayer (unless you are playing free-to-play games).

It will NOT be required for anything else though, so single player people and Netflix lovers will not notice a difference.

I, myself, think it is a wise choice by SONY. While I hate paying for things I don't use, PS+ is an awesome service and they give you wonderful games for free each month! I just downloaded XCOM, Deus Ex, and Saints Row 3 all games I was on the fence about owning.

I have no love for either SONY or Microsoft - but I trust SONY to do the right thing by gamers.

You need to understand for Sony, giving you mkv and NTFS are not in their interest. It's the last thing they want is let users play non-copyright or encrypted movies. Not able to support NTFS is in Sony advantage because users who insist to use mkv or any unlicensed format can't use large files. Able to make users store everything in the PS4 internal hard drive is an advantage for Sony to control what you can use.

Second anything Sony wants to sell or support, they will make big deal out of it in advertising.

Of course you can always wait and see what the hackers can do...

the PS3 will play M2TS does it not, just no NTFS support. I know you can mux bluray content to AVCHD and it'll play it.

Me thinks MS's licensing for NTFS on a video game console versus a standalone bluray player are probably different.

That doesn't even begin to address mkv support.

I recommend one of the many network streamers or set-top boxes if you really want mkv ntfs harddrive support. I wouldn't expect a PS4 to offer that given how it doesn't serve Sony's interest in anyway.

Anyone got a Twitter account? message Yoshida and ask him, he's really good with fielding questions of this sort.

I hope it does, there is more chance since Linux has far better support for NTFS nowadays assuming the Playstation 4 operating system is based on Linux again

even if the ps4 would support ntsf or exfat or other linux formating it will never play .MKV !
Because this is not an industry standard recognised format....

you can how ever download and install "ps3 media server" or enable windows media sharing in Windows media player and stream files lager then 4gb!

windows media player how ever also does not support the .MKV format for they are pushing there own .MP4 format which is an industry standard file format, and is also recognised by playstation
