PSM3 magazine's Insider column has a slightly worrying little rumour in it this month - in game XMB is still a fair way off. Here's a rundown of this months whisperings...
Dead Rising II On PS3 would be epic.
LOL. Capcom all of a sudden catering to the PSturd casuals? Not likely. They want their games to sell.
How can you guys not understand this?
Your 100% right eagle bubs for u.
Hmmm, you may be right, but this feature should have been available at launch, hence they would not need a patch for everygame. There are reasons why it is taking this long, but it still frustrates a lot of PS3 owners.
I don't think in-game xmb would require a patch for each game...a firmware update yes, but not a patch for each individual game that has comes out. It's all about stablizing the PS3 so it can run the game while opening other things on the xmb. Sony doesn't want the games crashing while everyone is trying to play their own music, looking on the internet, and audio chatting with their friends at the same time.
There is absolutely, positively not a patch required for each game. Apparently, you haven't the foggiest idea how an operating system layer works. Beyond that basic absurd misconception, do you somehow think Sony gets the _code_ for all the games we submit? Of course not...apparently in your world, Sony is making all publishers re-submit binaries for their games just so they can have an XMB in-game. Keep your damn mouth shut unless you have at least some idea what you are talking about.
When Sony gave back ram to developers, 0 games had to be patched. Besides that the in-game XMB feature is going to be used by using the reserved ram that developers CANNOT touch.
oh yer i cry . i never thought of that
The real truth is that Sony has lazy developers.
That's why it should have been available on day one. The longer the delay the worse it will get.
We get Dead Rising 2 FIRST! Prepare to taste the bitter taste of.......SLOPPY SECONDS! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
LOL Kas, you sir are a word smith. "Bitter taste of sloppy seconds", now that put a image in my head.
Am I the only one that seems to recall Sony said in an earlier statement that such features won't be around until summer time? Why's everyone holding their breath?
So this article is nothing new, even that other info has been posted before too.
Show me a link were there has been a post on N4G about Dead rising II Being a PS3 exclusive. Ok my bad, I found a post on a rumor a long time ago about DR2 being exclusive. Does this mean i have to cut my finger off or something.
http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... To the exact same information.
Yeh I got it "I'm dumb, your smart"! Here I'll slap myself. What do you want from me? I'm fn sorry, ok If I could delete the post I would.
Well you asked for a link...
The thing that kind of cracks me up about this story is that we are pretty certain (with good reason) that in-game XMB and Home will be "launching" at the same time. If this is true than we can also assume that we wouldn't be seeing in-game XMB until after the open beta for Home is completed. The open beta will start soon (assumed with more of that "good reason") and that will take a few MONTHS before it's completed and Home is actually released. I'm putting my money on June/July... No real news here guys. I even assumed they were referring to Dead Rising 2 (which I'm quietly stoked about BTW).
I'm just messin around, but seriously every single person doesn't need to report this as a duplicate, I think the mods get it.
This is tangible, I'm not gonna deny Sony is taking there sweet ass time, and the version rumored housing in-game XMB is the elusive 2.4 which is due summer, so months is accurate.
I can't care less, will be cool to look at messages while game, but not really that important... More urgent trought, make mute option a standard in online games with headset support. I don't want to chat or listen other music that not the game's one while playing ("sound" is something devs care fore, cutting it out is cut some of the experience), but those noob kids, haters, music listeners, foreigns in my brazillian room speaking in english... That is a problem.
thats just plain sucks with GTA 4,MGO beta, haze around the corner 2.(sigh) well at least I know there making it perfect for us but (sigh)
about GT 5: Prologue
How do you know it's Dead Rising 2?
All of this is rumor and speculation.
what else could it be?? Dead Rising fits the description perfectly, unless perhaps it's Crackdown 2?
Everything that comes out sucks at first, its been like that since the dawn of time. Also,, in game xmb isnt that important,, but it is a nice luxury to have. Let them take the time to enhance our almost perfect video gaming experiance on the best console ever made by mankind.
This has already been posted here. And it was posted with a direct link to pslegion last Friday. Why did this get approved. Anyway, Sony said in-game XMB is in the summer.
...will come soon my Disciples;) PS3 can not be completed in a day(like that thing called a xBox360!!! and look at ALL the problems it has!!!) ;-D Many Many Many good things come to thos who wait;) It's a EVOLVING Console;)
I won't be fully utilizing this feature until Socom Confrontation comes out anyways.
Wrong, Home will come around the launch of Little Big planet following E3. Around August/September. Socom Confrontation moved to the back burners and is going through beta testing. Due to the release schedule of some big hits during the summer, Prolouge/Warhawk expansion - april, ??? May (Sony gamer day, being planned and is actually going to occupy most of the staff that do the PSN updates/blog) and some japanese PSN titles being "retrofitted" for the North American audience. Wipeout HD might squeak out in May, but is set for June at the latest with MGO, metal gear online purchasable content. July will have Socom confronation, Home Beta (public, supposingly) and unfortunatly a ton of stupid e3 video will be posted. Home will not come out until August unfortunately and anyone waiting for a Spring release, you are unfortunate out of luck. You guys will have a Killzone 2 demo atleast. I also heard alittle fairy about there being a madden 09 demo in July. (Why Bother EA?) The good news: In game communication is coming out around E3. BUT just that. No cross game voice communication or Jukebox option, just text messaging. O well. More Audio visualizations coming as well. *whew*
DeadRising 2 even on the PS3 is a stretch and now it's going first to PS3 or maybe even exclusive?? Wow, that is some real reaching there. How about you just buy a 360 and enjoy Dead Rising and DR 2 on the platform that they were designed for. If anything be lucky you got Lost Planet a year later.. lol In the words of droids "Get your own games!".
