MaxConsole Forum member We! has confirmed that it is possible for the PS3 to play songs from the hard drive while a game is in play
awesome finally, but why would it be in spanish???
"Moreover the options were actually from there on in Spanish (his firmware language) which indicates that the player is integrated into the firmware and not options of the game as it is Japanese."
The dude was Spanish. He set his PS3 to Spanish.
I hope they enable this soon. Some games just can't be played with their own music.
do this already. WTF Sony. You gotta get this going soon.
I think they will implement this in the 2.0 update for the in game XMB(custom soundtrack for games).
i like hearing game fs while playing it immerrses me ina game its a nex gen game snot ps1 games having music in all story based or even fps music while playin ggames destroys gaming experience
its allways nice to see that they keep improving the OS.
im just waiting for in game XMB... until that comes, i dont really care about this... still good though=)
btw is home coming soon? something in my head tells me october
custom music is a big deal to me so they need to hurry up. don't wait till 2.0 (unless 2.0 is coming today)
Dude 2.0 is just around the corner, it's not like your going to have to wait months your look at by next for the new 2.0 update. Maybe around the time they launch HOME.
but i'm an impatient @sshole and i want it NOW!
NOW! NOW! NOW!
2.0 this week. That plus a $399 PS3, a bunch of new titles (namely exclusives), and the Touchsense controller would make me one happy gamer.
not a big deal for me cuz i already do that on my 360...actually been doing that since xbox 1....and about the in-game messageing i can chat with certain people off my friends list on xbox live with separate channels for each person using the mic so messaging isnt really interesting..
the thing i really wanna see from sony is HOME...that looks waay more interesting than these features...the idea of a virtual world where u can see other gamers from around the world sounds cool...i hope they put in mini games u can download and play with other people
your quite baised to the xbox ill still try and help answer...
"i hope they put in mini games u can download and play with other people "
already confermed that there will be several games at launch, eg, pool, bowling, air hockey, arcade games, an adult only casino area...etc etc. they also said that they'd release software to people so they can make their own flash games etc and impliment them into home for everyone to enjoy! hope this helped
i wasnt being biased....or at least it wasnt meant to be, i guess its cause i already seen and used the features, didnt really make me excited about it...and thanks for the info
"they also said that they'd release software to people so they can make their own flash games etc and impliment them into home for everyone to enjoy!"
SERIOUS??? holy sh*t im gonna have fun with that.....get HOME out already...ps3 looks to have more user created support than 360, thats one of the reasons im gettin one...id rather get UT3 on ps3 than 360 because of the user created stuff, makes for more replayability in a game... unless epic adds other things to the 360 version...
I don't think Incrim was being biased, just saying it how he sees it. He wasn't attacking the PS3 for lacking the features, just saying the 360 already has them.
As a PS3 guy myself I completely understand that those with a 360 can already use their own music in-game and also message ppl in-game. I think Sony have been playing it by ear for the most part, listening out for the consumers to start asking for things like an in-game XMB. I say 'for the most part' because things like the Theme settings were probably already in the works following the ability to already do so with the PSP. So Sony are keeping the updates flowing and adding what's been asked for in their 'major' updates.
Personally, it's Home I want more than either the music or in-game XMB (Even though they'll be released in the same update). I do believe, unless I've completely missed the point, that Home is actually part of the 2.0 firmware update and not just a download from the Store. As for the mini-games, I can't wait to try those out with ppl!
or would you have to turn down the game music yourself?
would be great for super stardust
When you guys are done (Sony) catching up to LAST gen xbox, then we can see what you have for this gen.
Streaming, PC connectivity, wide range of MP3/Digital Camera connectivity, HD movie/video downloads, Live TV, console-to-PC & console-to-cell phone chat connectivity, and the list goes on.....
a fanboy tool of a kid. Your a great addition to my blocked list. Congrats, now piss off no one cares about your Xbox or your opinion.
Streaming - already can do!
PC connectivity - yep, already can do that too!
Wide range of MP3/Digital connectivity - Very wide range in fact, as well as printers wireless by bluetooth.
HD movie/video downloads - can download HD videos but can PLAY HD movies.
Live TV - Coming early next year (to the UK, where I live, at least).
Console-to-PC & console-to-cell phone chat connectivity - The only thing on your list the PS3 can't do, but who cares? If I want to chat to a PC I'd use a PC messenger and likewise if I want to send a message to a cell phone, I'd send a txt.
So the list goes on.... well not really!
the ps3 can't do this already?
with sony's music background in music equipment and since M$ did this with xbox 1, you would think the ps3 would be able to do this out of the box. it does just about everything else. that is kind of weird to me.
its weird to me too. whats even more weird is that the patch exists, but they will probably hold onto it till the stars align or something.
Hey sony you know whats cooler than a BIG 2.0 update? let me play music in games today, and release home whenever the stars line up just right.
I wanna go HOME already. IIIIIII cant wait for it and the 2.0 firmware updates.
Sigh this better be a TGS thing, because waiting till home is ready may be a while.
Just make sure its full in-game xmb, I hate not being able to read messages, or send them, in game.
I love the fact that I have a console that does everything the Xbox3fix me does PLUS more and FREE. FREE FREE FREE!! Paying for the internet for a video game is ridiculous and I dont see how anyone can support this failed monopoly attempt called XBOX Live. PSN's content is way better and cost cheaper.
i've been in the beta for a while and it's cool and all, but you really need music to liven things up while there.
i like going there and playing pool or chess but i'd spend alot more time if i could listen to my music while playing. (i play my stereo system at home but still)
hey, another new feature in Home is that you can call anyone thats on your friends list thats also in Home even if they're not in the same area as you. meaning if your in your homespace and i'm in the gameroom, i can "call" you and talk to you. this leads me to believe they will implement this in all games in the future.
you can already do in-game music from HDD, but this function's availability is up to the game dev decide.
Sony intentionally left out CS, to show off the incredible sound capabilities (7.1) and permit you to be further immersed in the gaming experience. If there were CS out of the box, you might bother to appreciate 10 gigs of uncompressed audio.
P.S. Sony is/will be delivering truly cinematic experiences.
Now ask yourself, would I want to listen to outside music while watching a movie?!
It's been known for months that this game allows a better XMB access than any other game
Don't understand why we didn't have this out the gate. Just hope they can integrate it into all the new games. Games just rocks more when its playing our trtacks and being able to message ppl ingame would be kool.
I would realy like to listen to some sweet ass hardrock music when i play warhawk ;-)
Edit: Well i own one, but i doubt i will play anything but warhawk for a long time ;-)
just pick up a 360 when Ace Combat comes out. You're sure to have better times! ; )
Good luck getting that comparison to stick. The main difference is you're not confined to a plane in Warhawk and it's much more of an all round team game, ground/air/bases/flags/teamwor k. Whereas with Ace Combat you're up in the sky and dogfight all day long. Btw I do like Ace Combat, I do own some of the games in the series.
Warhawk is better than Ace Combat. Warhawk is actually one of the best online team games I've played since I got out of the CS:S grip last year. It's got all the great elements that make up a good MP game. I look forward to seeing how Ace Combat does but I don't think it has anything on Warhawk.
It sounds like Battlefield then...but with a different twist. I'm not though, trying to 'dis' Warhawk with a comparison to an EA game (I h8 EA). I'd play Lair or Two Worlds, any day & all day before I'll give EA my money...and that includes Madden too.
Who gives a monkeys about music? I dont have a single MP3 on my PS3. I use it to play games and surf the net if the GF is hogging the PC.
DIVX would be a blessing. Home is worth a look.
yayyyyy. i wanna listen to MY music during races and stuff
Ever thought about the roots of the Xbox controller?
Microsoft wanted the Xbox controller to be the best controller on the market. So what they did was considered that the most popular console at the time was the PS2 and people were used to the PS2 controller layout, but since copying that that would directly infringe on the copyright of the PS2 controller they just swapped the left stick and the D-pad round.
The 360 controller is in essence a mutated PS controler.
Companies take ideas from all corners of the market. Sony haven't copied MS, they've responded to what their customers want. Loads of the PS3 guys want in-game XMB, so Sony announce that they're trying to get it ready for 2.0. Lots of people want the ability to play their own music in-game, so Sony say that if the demand for it is high enough it'll be put into 2.0. Sony is reacting to the marketplace.
Saying Sony is copying MS is like saying Toshiba is copying Acer by using a screen on their laptops. Tut tut...
The Xbox controller was the product of the Dreamcast controller and the PS2 controller having a retarded baby after living under nuclear powered microwaves for 20 years. I do like the 360 controller however.
a video on the designs of the xbox 360 controller on the marketplace. There were a lot of models made by a lot of people but they choose the one we have today. It looks very similar to the dreamcast controller even down to the color of the buttons. It also showed the designs they had for the xbox 360 console which looks eerily similar to the some of the dell models.
Firmware 2.0 is going to be big.
