Ask your Grandma

If you were planning on cranking up your classic copy of Blink 182’s unforgettable Take Off Your Pants and Jacket through your brand spanking new PlayStation 4, you may be in for a shock – Sony has confirmed that its next generation console will not actually support audio CDs. The company revealed the snippet as part of an interview with Japanese press way back in February, but it seems that the news slipped through our net.

While this obviously isn’t a big deal – who buys CDs anymore, anyway? – it’s a bit of an unusual move. This means that you won’t be able to rip music onto your hard drive, forcing you to use MP3s or other similar file types if you want to put audio on your machine. Are you surprised by the tidbit? As always, let us know in the comments section below.
