The PlayStation 4 Incredibly powerful console but there are at least 10 things it can't

After PlayStation 4 became available Friday in the U.S. and Canada, Sony Corp said on Sunday it had sold 1 million units of its new PlayStation 4 gaming console in the first 24 hours with many of those representing pre-order purchases.

If you got it, consider yourself lucky.But don't get too excited just yet. The hardware is great, but the current game lineup is a different story. While there's plenty the PS4 can do, there are at least 10 things it can't.

No YouTube sharing.
You can't share your gameplay to YouTube but you can use the Share button on the DualShock 4 controller to upload gameplay videos to your Facebook account or stream gameplay to Ustream or Twitch.

It can't make you a jukebox hero.
If you're counting on your PS4 to play MP3s or audio CDs, you're out of luck. While older systems had the functionality, Sony didn't think those were features customers would want in the PS4, but it might add them back.

It can't play your old games.
If you're looking to play your PS3, PS2, or PS1 games, forget it because there's no backward compatibility. But for $9.99 you can upgrade digital copies of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Battlefield 4 to the PS4 versions.

It can't play 4K.
There was early word that the PS4 would support the unicorn that is 4K but it's a no-go. "Support for high-resolution 4K output for still images and movie content is in consideration, but there are no further details to share at this time," Sony said. "PS4 does not currently support 4K output for games."

It can't play a 3D game.
Though the PS4 can support 3D games, there are no launch titles that are 3D-compatible.

It can't share controllers between friends.
Want to assist a friend via the Internet? Sorry, but they're on their own.

It can't stop time.
Suspend/Resume mode won't be working at launch even with the day-one patch.

It can't support wireless stereo headsets.
You'll have to be wired to play, and we don't mean on Mountain Dew.

It can't support dynamic themes.
So get used to things being a little more static.

It can't give you all the control.
If you have a DualShock 3 controller or a Blu-ray remote control for the PS3, it's now powerless.

I absolutely love the new improved controller with its ability to listen to all sounds from the controller instead of the speakers. The only downside right now is a relatively week launch lineup but that will improve over time as we see more titles released that're entirely developed for next gen.

I can't wait to see what's next!
