Now Sony states they will add DLNA and media support after launch.

So both consoles will be incomplete on launch.
Xbox with no Blueray 3D
Playstation without DLNA media streaming

But later they will not have them.

At least they are fixing their wrongs... and I don't own a 3D TV so the lateness of the BluRay 3D on the XBox One is not really going to affect me.  DLNA would have though!!!

^ DLNA sounds like a good idea, convenience-wise ... but it's also giving a lot of "power" to faceless megacorps (imo).

DLNA is actually quite horrible when you get right down to it, the problem is other than pre-loading client devices hooked up to your tv with a vast array of media decoders to make things easy you don't have a lot of options.

When I first got my XBox 360 you could navigate network shares, you could listen to mp3s or watch videos or look at pictures without a media server acting as an in-between (this wasn't perfect, because of the vast array of audio / video codecs likely to be in a library but most things worked out of the box), then a dashboard update came down the pipe that removed all that and forced you to set up a media server and pre-process content through it to get it on your XBox.

So I stopped using my XBox as a media player and switched to my DVD player which for the most part can play videos right off the network share or connect to my VUZE server

The funny thing is that once I stopped using my XBox to stream video I started to play fewer games on it because it just wasn't on as much

Who need choices when you've got convenience!
