Playstation 4, No 3D Blu-Ray Support :

PlayStation 4 does not play 3D Blu-rays, the system's online user guide has revealed. The document confirms that 3D Blu-rays and some re-writable 2D Blu-ray discs will not be supported by the console. That’s a little bit strange, considering how hard Sony pushed 3D content over the past few years and how consummately the PlayStation 3 handled 3D Blu-ray playback but it is perhaps something that might be patched back into the system – as with many features we took for granted. It’s surely something that the hardware is capable of, given its support of the relevant HDMI 1.3 standard and the power in the box.   

The relevant section is under the Video/TV section in the user guide. It states that the PS4 won’t support obvious media like DVDs that haven’t been finalised and recordable Blu-rays, as well as the CDs we already knew about (and they’re patching that back in). And then there it is, right there at the bottom: no support for 3D Blu-rays.

Here are the supported disc Formats :

Blu-ray formats BD-ROM and BD-R/RE plus DVD formats DVD-ROM, DVD-R/RW+2, DVD+R/RW+2 will then be playable.

The formats not supported are Blu-ray 3D, BD-R/RE XL and BD-RE ver.1.0.

MP3 and audio CD options are not available at launch either, although support for these has been confirmed to arrive in a future patch.
