The latest Official PlayStation Blog entry may have revealed InGame XMB Music Access, relating to the ongoing question that is "InGame XMB Access - Will it have Music?"...
If anything you'll accesss it in the options just like the psn/ps3 games that have "in game soundtrack"
Actually, i am pretty sure that custom soundtracks were already announced for a future burnout update Edit: Yup i was right http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...
We're getting in game music this time!!! :D
http://www.criteriongames.c... http://farm3.static.flickr.... http://farm3.static.flickr.... It's not coming until July 10th so it could change.
It's quite obvious that it's custom soundtracks only for Burnout and not via XMB. They've been touting this feat for a long time as part of their Burnout update. And if you look at the post it comes from a Burnout developer. I mean it's great to be optimistic, just be prepared to get disappoint. I'm not trying to say in-game XMB custom soundtrack won't happen (in fact I'm confident it'll be here in 1-2 months), but I think it's quite obvious the guy is talking strictly about Burnout and not in-game XMB.
this has nothing to do with 2.40 cause the 360 version of burnout already has custom soundtracks and they are adding it to PS3.
kool feature, but I'm curios as to its specifics. Would it say include gun shots if we wanted to in some games with the music in the background? I guess this wouldn't happen with any other games but future ones could have it as an option. Also will we keep having to stop the music at every cut scene? By no means a big problem but if its a important cut scene you could end up missing the first few seconds while u stop your music... Not tht I'm criticising at all, 2.4 really does look great and I am very thankfull for Sony =) I hate it when you try and express your opinion about something shortly and then move on but you end up writing a big paragraph lol!
In game music is another EXCLUSIVE of the 360
I know. They posted on the ps.blog about it already [after they put it on their website ages ago] O.o @Riot Yeah, it's not in-game xmb access. that's what i meant about that blog post they are rumorizing. I don't think they'll change because if they do it'll have to go through Sony's Q&A again which means a delay for the update =)
The music and other stuff is just for the "year of paradise" updates, it has nothing to do with 2.4 really.
It looks more game specific than anything else. Oh, and I love Vampire Hunter D. Great flick.
yeah, its game specific, nothing to do with 2.4, but please, lets have some more straws to cling onto i think the best we can hope for is, press the ps button during game - play a song - press the button again - return to game - song goes off :D Same of which i think will be with voice chat :| and all its features infact, i cant see sony losing another 40-64mb of memory to run the os in the background have a read of this http://www.theinquirer.net/... this was prior launch, when ingame xmb was accessible, but now u can see why it was removed
2 wait more than a year 2 get a feature console " X " had 4 years now
what else is great? seeing you lose your bubbles for making such retarded statements
You have horrible grammar and horrible spelling.
... To have a console that has worked from day one and hasn't had a fatal system error like Red Ring of Death! I don't even play my XBOX enough to worry about that, however.
A little off topic, but it is related to the OS. Does the PS3 allow downloading of games etc. in background while playing a game. I know initially you had to watch it download but they altered that, but I thought that you still had to stay within the XMB. If not then this is something else that needs fixing in 2.40
I'm pretty sure I did it with a friend once... It's just reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallly sloooooooooooooooooow :3
yeah u have to stay in the xmb, u cant play a game, or even watch a movie
hold on, you can download stuff while in a game, but it becomes low priority and takes ages
you ca but only if your playing a game that doesnt have online
Ps3 downloads in background. U don't have to be in xmb. it pauses only if: 1. Start playing a multiplayer game.(duh!?!) 2. Start watching a movie from BDROM or DVD.(this is stupid) 3. Start playing a audio cd (not 100% sure.this too is stupid).
@ 5.5 Joining a chat room pauses the download too
And so far, no you can't. You can download stuff from the internet and the PSN and have it queue in the background, but that's about it.
Someone doesn't pay attention to Burnout, Cagney is going to rock.
Custom soundtrack means it overlays their music with your own while the sound effects are still audible. "Support for Custom Soundtracks on PlayStation 3" Also, In-game music overlays all the sound effects. thats how u know it's not...debunked.
How about split-screen???...like in previous Burnout games???
MS patented in-game dashboard powered music, so the ps3 can't do it that way. It's up to the games to implement it.
I don't think that patent will hold up but I also don't think Sony will risk a legal battle. It's got to be the dumbest patten out there. It's basically trying to patten multi-tasking.
It's an OS thing. Read please.
This has nothing to do with 2.4. PS3 already supports custom soundtracks, they just have to be implemented by the developer.
I want my in-game custom soundtracks or perhands a in-game music playlist player or something like that just to avoid the M$ evil plan forward to other console.
ouuu wooowwww the ps3 is finally getting what should of been out of the box... god a bit late. poop poop.
shame on the PS3 for concentrating on getting a system out that works
To have a console for all most 3 years with hardware problems that "X" cant seem to fix or nor do they want to.
Find out the truth about rrod. wow, do you know how many xbox gamers are gonna jump out when 2.40 is activated? psnetwork might crash with the sudden flood of back stabbed former xbutts! it saddens me that we will get some loud racist from America but I hope the canadiens are coming. those canadiens are cool as ice!
Everybody always hypes these updates so much. I hope that people get what they want out of it. I think that the PS3 is fine like it is, so I don't see much to be excited about.
This and the features "HOME" will bring to the PS3, should have been there from the start. I wouldnt have waited almost a year to get one if that had been the case. And HOME better not suck, especially with all the freaking time being spent on it.
i have always preferred the Playstation brand over the xbox (probably because its been out longer and been large part of child hood) but when Microsoft announce software whether its a game or system update they deliver on time on within weeks were as Sony take months and then delay it 2 or 3 times. very disappointed with today not good.
Um, I know 'diz iz a bit off topic, but do anyone realize dat MGS4 doez'nt have an Offical Commercial? How kool iz dat b!tch'ez?! A game dat iz sooo HOT, it doez'nt need any advertisin'! (Awww, I burnt myself juz' typin' dat...) (>;<)
