Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One is DLNA compatible and can play CDs and MP3s.

The company confirmed the console's home media functionality in a statement.

A spokesperson said: "Xbox One supports audio CD playback. Xbox One is DLNA compatible and we are working to get certified.

"For MP3s, Xbox One is a PlayTo receiver, so you can stream content from PlayTo supported devices like Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and many Windows Phones.

"Xbox Music will also deliver unlimited ad-free music through a Xbox Music Pass subscription."

This comes after Sony revealed last week that the PlayStation 4 will not be able to stream media from your home network.

This lack of DLNA support means that you cannot use the console for multi-media use in the same way that the PS3 could.

The Verge describe this as "a significant step backwards" for Sony, saying that it's going to cause big issues for many users.

On top of this, the PS4 will not play MP3s or CDs - meaning the only way you can listen to music is with Sony's Music Unlimited service.

Amidst unhappy fans, PlayStation's Head of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida tweeted: "Thanks for the feedback to the lack of MP3 and DLNA support at the launch of PS4. I'll share with the PS4 Dev team for future consideration."

The Xbox One is hitting stores on November 22, and will cost 429.

Wow...that is a bit surprising. Have a feeling Sony will be reversing itself on that decision down the line. No reason for the PS4 not to do anything that the PS3 currently does.
