TriggerHappy3683d ago

Nah, is not just that, A music video download service is going live with the uupdate today as well, well at least for Australia , dont know how long it will take for it to get to the other regtions though.

Right, Chacron, like you didnt know. Who do you thhink you're fooling?

SilvaSurfa3683d ago

I hope we get word on this very soon. Its about time.

hmmmm question to Xbox360 users out there. Can you play custom tracks if they are being streamed from you PC. Cause I currently stream all my music from my PC and I save my PS3 HDD for Games,Demos and trailers.

Kleptic3683d ago (Edited 3683d ago )

I don't own one...but my roommate has one...and you can stream stuff with that media center extension thing...sort of...from what I remember he could find the stuff on his PC HDD, then had to simply copy it to his 360...then play...but that could not be done while playing a game...the custom soundtracks was only for stuff on the local HDD...

could be wrong though...he hasn't had it hooked up in a while...not trying to start flaming...but it kind of isn't working...lucky for him though with that warranty stuff...

EDIT @below: cool...I guess he just didn't mess around with it long enough to figure it out...he was able to copy stuff without a problem...but couldn't just play it while streaming...I know he had XP, but have no idea what he was using to stream it...

I'm running Windows XP and have had no problems streaming my music to the 360 while playing games. The current version of Windows Media Player is one program that will stream your music. Another was Windows Media connect which I am not sure if it is used any longer, but you may be able to use that instead of WMP.

Yeah, you can. I stream all of my music from my pc WHILE I am playing games. I love my ps3, but this is seriously needed. Sports game soundtracks are HORRIBLE.

My cousin has a 360.
He had no idea the his 360 could stream music/video/pictures from his PC.
I schooled him, talked him into upgrading his PC (his old PC was too old for XP) and I set it up for him through WMP 11.

Neither did the 360 have this when it launched. Off the top of my head it took about 4 months for the 360 to get it. I hope the update comes tommorow along with Goddess of Heavenly Blade demo.

bung tickler3683d ago

you could always play music while playing a game since day one out of the box, i know i have 3 of them.

clownfacemcgee3683d ago

3 boxes?!?!?!? I have 1 PS3, and if I got another console it'd be the 360, but 1 of each is fine for me. Christ, 3 boxes? You should just get 357 more 360's and 3 PS3's and 0 Wii's since it doesn't have a number in it's name. 360 360's. Yes, that'd make sense and exhibit a mild chuckle from me.

incubus51873683d ago

the ps3 was said by a one of the technicians that it was already a feature since day one but it was up to the developers to take advantage of it

jmoneezie3683d ago

Then why is it revelant to this update if its already built in. Sony needs to stop BullSh!ttin' and patch this thing to view other video formats. I know they have the capability, they're just slackin.

Staircase3682d ago

I don't think featuring in game music has anything to do with developers. It it a system feature.

THC CELL3683d ago

its all true. the update is due very soon.
