Xbox One to run Audio CD Playback and DLNA Streaming

Microsoft has revealed that the Xbox One is capable of both playing audio CDs and DLNA streaming, two distinct features which distinguish it from PlayStation 4 and possibly gives it an edge over the neck and neck competition between these two rivals of the gaming world.

A Sony FAQ published regarding PlayStation 4 published that the PS4 lacked some music-related functionality — virtually, that it can’t play audio CDs or MP3s and lacks a music visualizer and DLNA support. Feedback from gamers about this issue has caused Sony to start “exploring possibilities” regarding this.

These issues brought the Penny Arcade Report to ask Microsoft about whether these features are supported on Xbox One. Microsoft replied saying  Xbox One will offer audio CD playback and DLNA compatibility. Content can be streamed to the system as a Play To receiver, meaning you’ll need a supported device in order to stream MP3s to the console.

PlayStation 4 is scheduled for release on November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe. Xbox One will be out on November 22 in North America and parts of Europe.
