    For me its emulation but not n64 emulation. For me its MAME emulation and because of the ps4 hardware, it might be possible to emulate 3d arcade games at good speeds for the first time on a console like arcade soul calibur 1, mace the dark age, or the lost world jurassic park for example. Just a wish.

    What is UHD BlueRay playback?

    UHD is ultra HD, or 4k.
    He basically wants 4k blu ray compatibility, which I'd love to have to.
    Don't think this is a software issue with the ps4, but rather a hardware issue (they were trying to keep the price down after all), so I don't think a software hack will solve the issue, sadly.

    Yeah I was thinking since most PS4 games run at 60fps if we put non-4k just 1080p patches on games we could run them at a decent 30fps or higher? I really don't mind 30fps.

    We could probably do that for the pro some time down the line, we can do that for the Wii U as well after all (change resolution and such).
    I just want 60fps bloodborne and witcher, that'd be a dream come true.

    Yeah. If MFW gets released we could possibly shut down processes that aren't required while gaming. CFW could do the trick as well. Also I mean using PRO patches on normal PS4 games. We could possibly game at 30fps. Although overheating and hardware failure could be a problem.

    Pretty sure it's a software issue. Sony said they wouldn't include it because they'd found that not enough people were using there PS4's for playing BluRays to justify the cost of adding support for it (there's probably a license fee they have to pay for every device, as well as the cost for developing the required software). The PS4 also doesn't play PS1- or PS2 discs, and it doesn't even play music CDs.

    Once CFW comes out we can play PS1 and PS2 games though. :)

    Yes actually I am going too research this topic a lot once CFW comes out so get prepared for all the Skyrim SE modded tutorials on this section. :)

    Suppose it could also be due to license costs why it isn't included.
    Sony's reasoning though that not enough people may be using the ps4 for bluray is plain idiotic, because they got ripped a new one for not including 4k blu ray support in their 4k console whereas their competitor does.
    Also unless your bandwith and connection is top notch, 4k streaming isn't viable, nor is it comparable to even regular blu ray because of compression.

    Agreed, I think it's a total bullshit argument. I'm just reposting what I remember them saying before. And yes, streaming won't come close to the bitrate you get from a disc any time soon. Which is why adding "3rd party" support would be awesome :) Maybe running Kodi through Linux on the PS4 Pro is a good way of doing that, I'm not sure.

    The only thing that will get me to buy a PS4 is...

    The ability to have CFW and run game backups, PS1, PS2 and PS3 games, emulators, and homebrew.
    But for now, let's just stick to PS3 Rebug and the Vita :yayps3: :yaypsp:

    If Sony releases a PS3 VC we can do PS3. Not right now we only suspect doing PS1 and PS2. Of course piracy is what we all want! :)
    You would be surprised how many staff I know on this website who seem non-piracy, but actually pirate. It's weird. Hope for the best! :D

    Tbh I want this thread too stay alive until actual PS4 hacking comes out. I am interested in seeing everyone's opinions and thoughts. :)

    Maybe emulators and game mods. I'm actually pretty happy with my ps4 already.
    Backwards compatibilty would've been awesome, though.

    I wish these things could happen but more than likely they won't until years down the road. I mean look how long it took for Henkaku to come out for the PS Vita.

    That was largely because the PS Vita had good security, which the PS4 does not have. Hackers have had kernel access to the PS4 for a long time, with the PS Vita that has not been the case.
