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.
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!".
I wish you had a PS3 cause there is only one use for the 360:
it may be speculation and reaching but who's to say it can't happen? you certainly don't have the power to manipulate the sands of time and see into the future (or do you???) in this biz, anything can happen- hell Sony could buy Halo off M$ and make Halo 4 a PS4 exclusive crazy i know- but theoretically possible besides DR2 on PS3 is pretty much a certainty cosidering the publisher- im not sure about either timed or full exclusive though
I wonder if sony is implementing the whole xmb instead of just adding certain features like chatting. This could be the reason it is taking forever.
Sony is going to give you a taste before you get the whole pie.
meh, merely speculations. It will come on summer as some around said maybe before MGS4 and Metal Gear Online ^__^ *hints* *hints* ^__^
I've had in-game XMB on my 360 for over two and a half years. What the hell are you talking about?
actually, the XMB is a GUI used in Playstation products- the term "ingame XMB" therefore refers to the use of this playstation-exclusive GUI whilst playing a game so no- you haven't had ingame XMB yet- no-one has you've had ingame dashboard- but sadly for you, the XMB is vastly superior and more feature-rich than the dashboard
Sadly for you, your feature-rich xmb won't be here until 2010.
sadly for you, you are equipped with an IQ of a worm XMB has been around since the PSP, INGAME XMB is due out this summer
a big s.q.
XMB > Dashboard? Sorry but Dashboard offers just as much as XMB + some, and you can use it in game. Don't worry though I'm sure your ingame XMB along with home will make it out in time to be on Ps4.
Hahaha. Look what I started. Hehe :D
I've been waiting for this feature since launch, I could wait a few more months.
like MS did with the 360
HOME is there attempt at it
in game XMB is probaly never going to happen cept for the handfull of devs that make it happen. dont take my word on it
XMB is OS
you'd think they'd put a scan of the column instead of showing us nothing.
XBL has had this since DAY 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, you're an idiot. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH XBL!! That's a function of the Dashboard - has nothing at all to do with XBL. I don't even own a 360, and I know this. Why don't you?
and.............. that comment was relevant the article how exactly??
they have had it for 5 years
MS did what they do
they made a OS and charged for it
thats a fact
Access to the dash is done both online and offline. This is not part of Xbox Live, it's a feature of the user interface. That is how you get messages online, offline and while watching movies. It also comes at no charge and standard in all games.
I've been drinking and I'm stating my opinion. XBL has allowed users to communicate and send messages in game since day one.
Sony has never said you will get full access to the XMB while in game those who think your getting everything are setting them self's up to be disappointed & these people will be the ones complaining when they release "IN GAME MESSAGING". A Sony rep said that "IN GAME MESSAGING" will be coming in summer, no mention of other options! This happened with the 2.0 firmware update everyone believed the rumors & then complained when Sony didn't deliver but Sony never announced anything. Unless it comes from direct from the source take it with a grain of salt.
We will not see this until the PS4, Sony is good at promising things in one gen and not delivering until the next, why are so many people so slow to learn this lesson. Stop counting on Sony for this type of stuff, they will deliver it when it is best for them, not their customers.
i'm starting to believe that n4g is approving these stories purely for the repeated hits from the moronic users that feel that they have to fight for their illogical reasoning.
Deluded are the Sony chumps in here. XMB is the bomb..........PS4 might have it?LOLOLOLOL. tom
xmb stands for cross media bar.
what you meant was in game xmb.
Someone will get fired if in game XMB doesn´t work properly... grrrr...
Bullshit! This is what has been confirmed by Sony; In Game XMB for Summer 2008 in FW 2.40. The month has not been revealed yet.
I love how absolutely nobody has figured out that Home IS the coveted "in-game XMB". Does anybody honestly expect the big boys over at Sony to deliver both?
