This is probably important to people who use these features. I've never heard of DLNA until now... it's some sort of proprietary Sony thing? Except for the Playstation, I've never had an interest in anything Sony makes. I mean, seriously, their TV's are massively overpriced - the Playstation is the only thing Sony makes that's worth buying, everything else they make tends to be horrifyingly overpriced, which is why they're being slaughtered by Samsung and LG in the consumer goods market. Actually, I think their eReader is pretty good as well, but they're still a couple hundred bucks more than their competitors (I have a Sony eReader - it's good... but perhaps not 360 dollars good). And don't get me started on their abysmal phones.
I'm not saying Sony doesn't make good products, it's just that others make similar products for less.
Anyway, since I almost never buy any Sony products or anything from the Sony Store except for games, I've never used DLNA and most of the rest of the world hasn't either. Maybe Japanese folks are more familiar with DLNA and use it more frequently, but I'm pretty sure most of us in the West don't really use DLNA.... given that it's the first time I've heard of the bloody thing.
No YouTube upload on launch day? Eh.
No CD support? Who.... who uses CDs? DVDs is where it's at. MP3 players. USB sticks. I haven't used a CD in.... what.... 5 years? I think I used a CD ONCE 5 years ago...and that was to get old information off so I could put it on a DVD.
The external HD stuff actually IS somewhat concerning. I don't like having to delete and re-download digital titles from the Playstation Store. If they supported external hard-drives then I could download them, keep them on the drive and just put them back whenever I wanted to play. I suppose they're doing this to force us to buy their terribly overpriced "memory stick DUO" or whatever the hell they're calling their stupid proprietary memory crap.
I like my PS3. I even like my Vita. I'm absolutely getting a PS4. But sometimes Sony makes it hard for me to like them with their almost apple-like obsession with making you buy THEIR overpriced accessories and add-ons. I freaking hate Sony's memory sticks. Overpriced bullshit.
