Xbox One + Accessing media on network drives
I am thinking of getting a Xbox One soon, I currently have a PS3 and fancy a change. What i cant seem to find out is if the Xbox One is capable of accessing my Buffalo Link-station where store my Music, Videos etc. I can access these no problem with my PS3 am not sure if you can with the Xbox One. I used to have a 360 some years ago but never had the Buffalo then so have no idea if any Xbox had this feature?
The outcome of your answers will help me make my decision.

It's called Dlna, the ps4 does not have it and the Xbox one specs information so far has not said either way. I would imagine the Xbox one should have it as it does help link all their devices like their pcs and phones, they have more to gain by keeping it in, Windows 8 has a windows certification for dlna sharing so while it is still possible that it may not have it, it is likely that it does but as far as I know there is no definitive answer yet.

I think you'll have to wait a bit longer to be 100% sure, but it does look like the Xbox One will support DLNA.

Never mind, looks like the info is out now
Xbox One Is DLNA Compatible, Can Be Used As Media Server - News - www.GameInformer.com
Xbox One can play Audio CDs, DLNA compatible, No local MP3 (Only thru Play To, X - Xbox One Message Board for Xbox One - GameFAQs
No local MP3 support but you can push them or whatever else to it over the network from a pc or phone or any one of the thousands of things that support the standard. Ps4 does not do local audio files either but also does not support Dona.

Still no word on supported formats for DLNA streaming though.

But will it be able to access files on a Buffalo Linkstation or will it be only accessing files ona Microsoft based platform kit?

If its Dlna it is an open standard, ironicly made by Sony so yes it should work.

I can confirm that the Xbox 360 does work with a Buffalo Linkstation. As I just setup mine over the weekend. In the same boat as the OP now hoping the Xbox One will work properly too.

Thanks guys for your answers.
Hoping the Xbox One follows in the same path.
