Sorry, TC, but your topic will go down in flames. You're not allowed to post positive things about the Xbox One.

Here is the reference article from Penny Arcade

http://penny-arcade.com/report/article/yes-the-xbox-one-can-play-cds-and-will-support-dlna-streaming

Yes, the Xbox One can play CDs and will support DLNA streaming

Sony announced some details on things the Playstation 4 can and can't do, and I had sent a question over to Microsoft about whether the Xbox One would be able to beat those features. I've just now received an answer and, yes, the Xbox One can play audio CDs.

The system is also DLNA compatible, and they're in the process of being certified. As for mp3 playbacků well, that's kind of a mixed bag. The system is a Play To receiver, so you'll be able to stream your content to the Xbox One using any Play To supported devices such as a Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 enabled PC, Windows Phone, etc.

You'll also, of course, be able to stream music through an Xbox Music Pass subscription.

So it doesn't seem like there is going to be a way to simply import your music files, but you will be able to stream the content you already own, hopefully use it in custom mixes for your game, and the device will be DLNA compatible. Audio CDs, for the people who care, will be supported.

So there you go.

...people still buy audio cd's in this age? Dood...it's called the inet. You can buy the songs online, and usually cheaper than the CD is or at the same price, and faster than it would take you to drive to the music store (or walmart?) and get home to put it on your system. If you don't have a flash drive to move them with.....you need to jump ahead with technology with us :).

Supporting DLNA is a good thing...but that's already old news and technically not even a new feature for a "next gen " console. My PC is already hooked up to my TV (as I would assume most people who have decent or above computers do this as well) so DLNA is only for those a bit behind or with crappier setups in their homes. I again state DLNA is nice though for streaming into rooms away from your main tv, it's just not for everyone.

Though I'm curious if someone wants to legitimately answer this:

Why are people so concerned with playing music on the XBOne? Home stereo system already does that without having to go through the XBOne, same with PC being hooked up to said system (and a PC will always hold more of anything than a console). I ask because when I play a game, I like to have all aspects of the game, as in the game soundtrack, voice acting if it's there (which it is in just about every game made today), every sound effect and ambient noise they added to the game for better immersion. If you claim to "Love this game for everything it has to offer" but are playing music from something completely different, then you don't really love it for everything.

Both these consoles need MP3 playback. This is so silly.

Yep, knew they would force that Xbox music pass on people and sites would spin it as a positive.

Well, I burned a few CDs into my 360 and I listen to my music whenever I'm cleaning up the house and just want some background music.

The MP3 thing isn't a big deal to me, but no DLNA steaming (on PS4)?!! That's a HUGE disappointment. Couldn't you stream on the PS3? So why can't you do it on PS4? PS4 is supposed to be the best thing ever.
