The lights are on
If you’ve been looking wistfully at your stack of 3D Blu-Ray movies and wondering just when you’ll be able to play them on your new consoles, we have some good news. If you’re a PlayStation 4 owner, you can now get the most out of your film library.
The latest firmware update (1.75) adds the capability, along with a few other minor adjustments. Sound quality during 1.5x playback is improved (but still amusing). System messages have moved from the right side of the screen to the left.
You can also configure your system to automatically receive “featured content.” You can enable this in the system settings, which will push material to your PS4 when powered on or in standby mode.
If you’re an Xbox One user, you’ll be getting 3D support (along with a host of new social improvements) in the August update. If you’re in the preview program, you should receive that patch soon (if you haven’t already).
Our TakeSlowly but surely, both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are adding capabilities we saw as basic in the previous iterations. We’ll probably be getting reminders for some time that the new-generation of hardware was pushed to market before it was quite ready.
