Don't know what HDCP is (High Definition Cerebral Palsy?) but this doesn't sound like that big of a deal.

Close. HDCP was one of them hardware level anti piracy schemes or something like that.

HDCP is supposed to be a way to hook up your PS4 to your computer via the HDMI cable, so you can stream your PS4 through your computer.
I follow several ppl on Twitch and UStream, and they seem to be excited about this new update for that very reason.
I don't stream, so I don't really know...

I think the Friends not only needs to allow more people, but they should bring back the previous friends list functionality on the PS3. Like, for instance, sort the user by 'last on'. And also show me when my friends were last on (eg. Last on 2 hours ago).

The Playstation Store is still too slow and herky/jerky. This is unacceptable and needs to be fixed.

HDCP = High Definition Capture Protection

By the way, removing HDCP is not a rumour, was actually posted on PS Blog a few weeks ago. Here's the link: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/03/19/upcoming-ps4-update-to-add-share-enhancements-and-hdcp-off

New game sorting options are a must. I like the new UI, but not being able to organize what's on there is a nightmare. I don't want to have to scroll through 30 different thumbnails to find a game, and I don't want to have to dig through the video menu to find Netflix. Let me make a folder for games, let me put the ones I play often on the main screen, and let me choose which options to see in the video menu.

Any news on that update that makes PS1 & PS2 discs playable... I'd buy a PS4 instantly if that ever sees the light of day.

Whats the point? They both look terrible on HDTVs.

Nah, a proper emulator would be nice and crisp. They make some games look better than their HD updates.

wish they would put in useful updates like being able to play digital movies on it via usb. Tired of using google drive to stream through it. It has to cut out some of the screen to get full screen. Still works pretty good but it's not perfect

What ever happened to being able to jump into someone elses game if they get stuck on a part and helping them out or showing them how to do it?

So that isn't up and running on PS4? Didn't get min yet. But that sounded like a really cool feature.

fingers crossed its bringing the much wanted pausing and resuming games from standby mode.
cant believe its taken them this long to add that, i mean that was one of the biggest features they first showed off.
