Albert Penello via Twitter has revealed some new details related to Microsoft's next-gen Xbox console, Xbox One. Penello confirmed that consumers won't be able to rip CD's to Xbox One's HDD as in the case in Xbox 360.
I expect to see an IGN article explaining how this is bad for Microsoft. But we won't.
so you wont be able to listen to your CD music collection and play games at the same time... because only 1 disc can be in the tray at the one time.
And your answer for why that would be a problem while playing a digital game would be? Why wouldn't arcade titles or any other digitally downloaded game not allow this? Anyway, it doesn't matter, neither X1 nor PS4 support the ripping of audio cds. Will X1 allow play back of audio cds though? Did they answer about playing MP3s at launch? What about dlna? I'm surprised they aren't rushing to confirm this stuff after Sony finally had some negative press. Makes me think that their system might be in the same boat :/
@jimmylmao - Who still buys CDs? Youre finding a reason to complain when you probably do not pay for music, and your primary music player is an Ipod or smartphone. Seriously - Just stick it on a NAS and play over the network like I do.
This pisses me off! I would like M$ to explain why I can't rip my collection to the XBOX ONE! I have a nice cd collection on my 360, that was one of the first things I was going to do with X1.
@ FamilyGuy, The system is also DLNA compatible, and they're in the process of being certified. As for mp3 playback… well, that's kind of a mixed bag. The system is a Play To receiver, so you'll be able to stream your content to the Xbox One using any Play To supported devices such as a Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 enabled PC, Windows Phone, etc. http://penny-arcade.com/rep... http://www.neowin.net/news/... http://nzgamer.com/news/694...
@ JimmyLmao Well, if you can rip the CD to your hard drive then you don't need the disc to be in the tray to listen to your music Einstein...That's the whole point of having the ripping feature :P Seems both Sony and Microsoft assumed it's outdated and no one will use it, whereas I listen to my own music in game very regularly, and yes, it enhances the experience massively (especially considering the rubbish music they put into most games these days). Sure, haven't brought a CD in years, but the fact that the feature is there meant I took the time to burn CDs and rip them onto my 360, so I can compile specific playlists for specific games. If I can copy mp3 files onto the hard drive or AT LEAST the system can read and stream playlist files, then no worries, but sadly, I doubt either system will support either feature...the PS4 can't even play back mp3 files for God's sake :P
This audio thing on both sides is really annoying. I don't use that feature very often, but I would like it to be there if I ever do need it. Hopefully they both add it in with an update.
Lol. Calm down otherZinc. Keep your 360. Wouldnt you be able to connect both systems with hdmi in
Wow I can't believe I never knew you could rip CDs on the 360. For listening to music while playing a game I always just put my music on a flash drive, plugged it in and did it that way... Couldn't you still do that on Xbox One?
@ family guy sift through the articles under Xbox one tab
Do people actually still rip those 50 mb songs to their hard drive...
exactly. CD is dead
Can we upload our saved music from our 360 through the HDMI-in on the XBOX 1? Also, cd's may be dead but most of us have a fantastic collection.
Dont most people just stream their music from their laptop/PC etc to the 360? Thats how I do it anyway...
I haven't paid for music since I got tom jones single 'sex bomb' on cassette lol Pretty sure at least 90% of gamers who listen to music while they play games would stream from their computers and with games these days the in game sounds dialog and soundtracks are too good to waste by playing your Miley sirus album
For everyone that uses custom soundtracks in wrestling/basketball games this is a BIG disappointment
Buy an Mp3 player; then buy a dock that fits the MP3 player. Proceed to burn cds to mp3. Place mp3 on dock. For all those without an income, Christmas is right around the corner so ask Santa. If you refute the belief of Santa, do odd jobs to collect an income. If it is over $1500 report it to the IRS. Problem solved. Or quit crying about not being able to burn cds to an Xbox in 2013-2014. Ha ha ha.
Just ripped 4 cds to my xbox 360 yesterday because NBA 2k13's OST just isn't doing it for me. Like 4 good songs and the rest trash. I love this though, I can play the game I like and listen to the music I like. It's great for when I get sucked into doing random stuff in Franchise mode for 2-3 hours without ever playing a game. I will miss this feature in next gen. The only reason so not include it in XB1 or PS4 is to make money on a "service" No "app" plays the music I want to listen to....or that you want to listen to.
it kind of defetes the whole point id rather just rip it to the console
Pre Order in a Parallel Bizarro World Universe CANCELED!
Wait! People still ACTUALLY buy CDs?!
If they really like the artist.
I still buy Vinyl. Problem?
Good stuff. So do I when I can.
I do, though I prefer to buy DVD or Bluray audio when it's available, though unfortunately the selection in those formats is rather slim.
Wait People still ACTUALLY buy games & music on discs! . . . Yes... those five inch discs are a wonder aren't they.
Yes believe it or not, people still hold physical art dear to themselves.
That's what I said when x1 was announced at e3. "People still watch cable"?! But seriously isn't xbox1 suppost to be an all in one media/entertainment station?! Wtf happened?!
Yes I just went out and bought: Phoenix - Bankrupt Daft Punk - RAM The Strokes - Comedown machine. Like $9.99 each at Best buy. Phoenix was actually $15 as it came with a bonus cd with 70 outtakes and demo songs that never made the cut. So yea people like me that love music....We still buy Cd's
The first two Xbox systems you could do that. I don't understand why you can't do it on the third one.
Seeing as it's confirmed DLNA, I'd say the news came from the same boat. just stream it off your PC!
I don't get it either, both Sony and Microsoft seem to have something against CD's
@ Kneon That's because they think that if people can't play their CDs on their PS4/Xbox One, they'll pay for Music Unlimited/Xbox Music to get that music.
That's why i went from Playstation 2 to Xbox because of the cd ripping.
I just dont understand this obsession with ripping cds onto consoles, my ps3 has not one song out on it from a cd usb or what ever else, the music that comes with games is enough when i am playing , and if i am not playing im not using a console to play music with anyway lol ill use a cd player or my pc. I cant really call this a negative to the xbone as much as i dont like MS or the xbone.
I've never understood why people can't imagine other people using a feature just because they don't. You may not have a single song on your PS3, but my 80 gig is filled up because of pictures, music, and movies. I used my PS3 as my main media hub, not my 360. Stop, breathe, and realise that just because YOU don't use it, doesn't mean other people won't also so it has to be accounted for.
playing fighting games with rocky or any battle theme was badass. ufc, fight night even cod etc. MS is slipping
I never thought of that before. Now to add that theme the arena stage on TTT2. Thanks!
@MrMagoo...Well the way you listen to your music is YOUR choice. You're obviously glad to have options. But for those of us that actually like to rip cd's so as to have quick access to the music or to preserve the actual cd by not using it, this can be seen as a set-back... One of the things that appeals to me is when games have that "custom soundtrack" marked off in the back telling me I can add my own music, and i can honestly say it does make the game more enjoyable... I get the most use from it whenever i play nba 2k games since a good portion of the game's soundtrack is dull and uninspiring...but there is nothing like scoring a big bucket and turning the game around and suddenly hearing the beastie boys's "No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn" in the rally...then being up by 15 in the final minutes and have the Mortal Kombat theme playing on the court and hearing it say "Finish Him".... Works great for racing games like need for speed too...I'm sure a lot of people wished grand theft auto 5 had a custom soundtrack option seeing as how many (including myself) have not been pleased with the current music selection of the game. Sometimes, when i'm doing chores around the house i use my 360 to play some music off the hardrive and i put the color patterns on full screen. I don't do it on my pc cause i have cheap speakers and i don't own a stand alone cd player so my 37' jvc tv is MY best option for obtaining good volume in my house, so to me it's yet another reason not to get an X1. This "no ripping" thing makes no sense for a machine who's major marketing gimmick is being a full multimedia device set to replace all your stand alone devices...so they say.
I never used the cd rip feature myself. Just played my custom soundtracks in test drive and horizon using a plug in hdd or my iPod.
Has Penello commented on Resoltiongate on his Twitter?
maybe I'm missing something, but it seems features we had previous gen is not appearing in the next gen.
So true. Even though it came at a later time, custom soundtracks in PS3 is something I've taken for granted in Tekken Tag 2. Why pay when you can play.
You're right. They're cutting corners on certain things to upgrade or enhance other parts.
@ nevin1 The PS5 and Xbox Two won't even play games.
Will It be possible to rip from your network onto your HDD? I know the PS3 could do this. Or is storing songs on your HDD not possible at all? So much for the 'one device to rule them all'... Doesn't really matter to me since I have 'play to' with my phone, but just curious.
Meh, CD's are barely used nowadays People just get it of the internet and use either - a connection between the pc and console - a usb stick To put the files on the console Also microsoft, make sure the video includes XBOX ONE footage please? No PC footage? I mean, thats already the 3e time it happened
In a statement to Polygon, Microsoft spokespeople said the company is working to get Xbox One DLNA certified. The Xbox One can act as a Play To receiver, allowing users to stream content from supported devices, like Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 computers and "many Windows Phones." While Xbox One supports audio CD playback, it does not support CD ripping, a spokesperson said, a feature of the Xbox 360. It also doesn't support MP3 or AAC playback from devices like the iPod, iPhone, Zune or Windows Phone over USB. A statement notes that Xbox Music, which carries a $9.99 monthly subscription, will deliver "unlimited ad-free music through a Xbox Music Pass subscription" on Xbox One. IDK I think only way for Xbox players will be off internet or physical CD don't know if DLNA will be available considering there getting it certified.
Question? If those people are getting music from net then where's the source from. The master audio file or ripped cd. Think about it!... If CD's went away where would you get new music? I-tunes? MP4's wrapped in drm? Trust me... you don't want CD's to go away. All that's left is DRM if that happens. Why do you think there so many music streaming services available. It's not just because it's convenient. Little by little people are becoming used to borrowing music instead of owning it. That's why I take pride in my CD collection. I own it and no one can change that.
I never ripped CD's on none of my systems. I put the MP3's on a USB or stream my videos, movies & music from my home server on to the 360.
Can't rip CDs I am no longer buying a xbox one and will be buying a Walkman instead!
Of course, physical media is pretty much dead and there's really no reason to continue supporting it when they're trying to move away from physical and go to digital. Naturally, many people resist change. I'm not particularly distressed by that decision.
I will solve the problem. Rip the cd to your pc and stream the music from the pc. Done
I have a 12 yr old pc that uses Linux. Solve that problem without saying go buy a new pc or switch to windows.
Sorry to hear that.... put your music on a USB drive. Take it and put it in the USB port on the console. It also has wifi direct so it will be able stream from smartphones, tablets, etc. But you're probably are still rolling with a bag phone.
Doing so would require creating a folder with whatever playlist you want for whatever game on your pc then transfer to usb, then plug into the x1...the x1 is "supposed" to make our multimedia easier? Doesn't look that way to me. Plus, there is no confirmation that the x1 will allow you to actually stream your music from your phone, but if it does i doubt it will work with mine since i use a blackberry and have no intention of switching just to play some tunes for a game or 2.
This was cool on the original xbox, but it hasn't been a necessity since. We've got audio steaming and USB transfer... those will suffice.
Wtf not? Im really getting tired of all the damn limits consoles have already. This just might be my last gen on consoles im about to just build a ppwerful pc and call it a day. Consoles always have some bs excuse for being compatible with their last console etc...
"What? Do people still buy CD's?" Dude. I only buy CDs or vinyl. I hate shit mp3 rips and think itunes is everything that is wrong with the music industry. Omitting something so basic and simple as CD playback is beyond me!
Another feature removed that the 360 had and even the original Xbox. Why remove the feature, even if CD's aren't used that much today? Does it cost that much or take alot of code to allow the console to do it? Even if most wouldn't use the feature its still gone for those that would use it. I thought the Xbone is supposed to be an all in one device, the media center of your living room. Right now my 360 looks like a better option to fill that role.
Oh dear god why is this even an issue?
What's a CD?.....LOL
