"While Xbox One supports audio CD playback, it does not support CD ripping, a spokesperson said, a feature of the Xbox 360. It also doesn't support MP3 or AAC playback from devices like the iPod, iPhone, Zune or Windows Phone over USB. A statement notes that Xbox Music, which carries a $9.99 monthly subscription, will deliver "unlimited ad-free music through a Xbox Music Pass subscription" on Xbox One."

So, they're both pushing their own music subscription service...

DLNA will allow you to get around this by using an iOS app called SyncStream or a PC/Mac app called Universal Media Server (aka PS3 Media Server, works on 360 too)

PS4 doesn't support MP3 playback either. Both are dropping that support in order to sell their subscription services that nobody wants.
Thankfully I dropped the consoles this time around.

Anyway, the CD ripping isn't much of a surprise. The rip would be piss poor quality unless it was securely ripped to FLAC, and only a couple of programs (dBpoweramp and EAC) can really do that.

I am surprised their subscription service is ad-free. How unlike Microsoft.

Microsoft confirmed its Xbox One will be DLNA-compatible meaning it can act as a receiver when streaming media from other devices and will support audio CD playback, though the system itself won't support CD ripping, MP3 storage or playback.

News of Xbox One's support for media streaming and CD playback comes in the wake of an announcement from Sony that its PlayStation 4 won't support either feature, despite being supported by the company's current console, the PlayStation 3. Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida later said he was sharing feedback to the announcement with the PS4 development team for "future consideration."

In a statement to Polygon, Microsoft spokespeople said the company is working to get Xbox One DLNA-certified. The Xbox One can act as a Play To receiver, allowing users to stream content from supported devices, like Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 computers and "many Windows Phones."
