Fans petition Team Ninja for Custom Music on PS3

Some fans on Gamefaqs are unhappy with the shift to Rap Music with DoA5 and, instead of asking the developer to change their game any (like was done with Mass Effect) they are instead asking for a much simpler solution; grant access to Sony's AMB Music. (Culture, Dead or Alive 5, PS3, Sony, Team Ninja)

Rap? Wow yeah, I don't really like that either. No offense to those that do, but honestly all games should have a good mix of music and not just primarily focus on one genre. Unless of course the game is based around its music.

I don't believe the game sports only Rap but it apparently has enough to have some people in a bit of a tizzy.

Oh well as long as it's not like 80% of the music I'm okay with it... I just like to have variety so I'm not constantly listening to only one type of music throughout. XD

As someone who's played the game since Thursday non-stop, the only rap song in the game is the one from the trailer...and it only plays when trying to join an online match. I won't get into details about the soundtrack as my in-depth review goes live at 9am EST, but petitioning for a song that you barely hear for more than 30 seconds is pretty childish. Take it from someone who's not a fan of rap music and has actually completed the game.

Music should be the last concern for this franchise.

It's wack rap at that too judging from the trailer. lol I couldn't help but cringe when I heard it. I mean isn't pop music more popular these days?
Gen0ne  +   1161d ago
It is wack rap sir. I own the game and... yes, it is indeed wack. This song lives on the island of Wackfu its so wack.

Mainstream music sucks in general.

Rather see a petition for quality netcode, 1st reports aren't good.
MadMax  +   1161d ago
Wait a minute, they stuck crap music in there? Why on earth would they do something like that? Petition signed!

custom soundtracks should be standard with every game, its ridiculous
BitbyDeath  +   1161d ago
Agreed, one of Sonys biggest mistakes this gen IMO was overlooking the OS and not adding enough memory to compensate these extra functions.

They left it up to the developers. I see nothing wrong with that. Music is a huge part of games. If I made a game and worked hard on the music to make sure it set the tone and helped establish the atmosphere I was trying to create, why would I have someone be able to blast their Miley Cyrus instead? It's like having an option to replace Movie soundtracks with whatever you want. It's a pretty ridiculous notion, isn't it?

There are plenty of games out there that do offer custom soundtracks. I see nothing wrong with letting the developers make the ultimate decision.
BitbyDeath  +   1161d ago
@darkride, they were forced to leave it up to developers cause the memory would have to come from the game side. OS didn't have it.

Sounds like a lot of people will be playing with the music muted then. I've heard you actually have to listen to that noise during online lobbies. The gym stage also has garbage playing in the background too but I think you can disable that stage (or at least disable it from being randomly picked when you select random).
denero1  +   1161d ago
O.o all this for one song that you only hear when connecting to online matches :|

well not as crazy as the people who said they refuse to play gta san andreas because of the music -.-

but i do believe every game should have custom soundtracks on it so I would sign it for that purpose

If someone plays online a lot then it will get annoying REALLY fast. It will get worse if someone picks that gym stage afterwards. They should just disable the online lobby music altogether or just loop the character select theme when in a lobby.

Tekken Tag did a better job with the beats and has custom soundtracks too. Although, because of ram limitations, it can affect the frame rate. Or so the instructions say.

Good lord.. This game cant install fast enough! Time to earn some trophies & beat some a$$
Septic  +   1161d ago
And that's why I hate installs.....

If there's rap music I won't be buying it
Gran Touring  +   1160d ago
wow seriously?
gtr_loh  +   1160d ago
Why don't you guys just plug your USB mp3 device into the aux on a home theatre system? Sure sounds a lot better than coming from the TV itself
Bon Scott  +   1160d ago

Ps3 fanboys troll 360 articles all day.

Enjoy that rap crap ps3 dead or alive purchasers.
