Chuck Lacson, the Associate Product Marketing Manager of SCEA, confirms that the upcoming Playstation 3 racing game, ModNation Racers, will support custom soundtracks.
WIN this and GT5 shows that Custom soundtracks can be done on the PS3 developers just need to put it in there
Confirmed that I'll actually be buying this. TGSI
Wait, we already know Gran Turismo 5 will support custom soundtracks? Is that true?
yep GT5 support custom soundtracks ..even GTpsp support custom soundtracks. MOd nation supporting custom soundtrack is also full of win ...
This Game is Going to Be a Huge Blast, I'm all for it...
Already pre-ordered (rachet + clank skins come free on amazon) Waiting patiently
4 player splitscreen 2 player splitscreen online Custom soundtracks User generated content(track,avatar,kart) UFG should be proud of themselves, this game is set to become the ultimate kart racer this gen
If they add LAN Support on top of all that. It's a guaranteed buy on my end.
Burnout Paradise. Zen Pinball also supports custom soundtracks plus ps3eye video chat while playing.
Of course the PS3 CAN do custom soundtracks, most games just don't support it. I only have a few that do, and it kind of disappoints me. Sony really should have made it a requirement for all new games alongside trophies in 2009.
@OPENGL Makes sense NOT to have it mandatory. No every game needs custom soundtrack and in some cases it may go against immersion. Yeah there are some instances where the developer was just lazy and didnt include it, but games like Demons Souls, Dead Space dont need it, I can't see it working in GoW3 either.
It should be up to the user to decide if they want to listen to the game's original soundtrack, or their own music. Say I'm replaying the game for trophies, why should I not be allowed to listen to my own music?
Cool! Needs some Benny Hill music to go with those visuals!
I was thinking more "Mika" or some non-instrumental Ratatat - Tropicana.
The one game that needed it the most (Little Big Planet) didn't support it. My mind still boggles everytime I think how LBP managed to ignore such a simple feature.
LBP supports it but only in the menus and in create mode. http://www.psu.com/forums/s...
Like killzone 2 , Lbp support custom soundtrack only at some moments because the devs of each game relied on the music to create the ambiance in each level .. Simple as that ..
Imagine the copyright nightmare if everyone uploaded a level with their own music track?
How about, instead of controlling how we play just give us total access over the custom soundtracks and let us decide when to listen to it. It's not like everyone starts the game playing Custom Soundtracks: thus wasting dev-effort in their own music. I only turn on my own music when I'm tired of listening to their music. Not the other way around. Guerrilla should've done the same thing. I'll decide when I want to listen to my music. If it ruins any ambiance, it's my bad, not theirs. thanks.
Well when they go out of their way to create perfect 7.1 expérience ( uncharted, killzone ) they kinda want you to listen to it at least. As for LBP , allowing custom music but not proving a way to share it along with your levels would have made a lot of people angry ... when they have plenty of copyright issues preventing them for doing so. Case in point LBP : the game support it wery well , no problem nor bugs ... but when copyright ..is something they can not overlook .
the power of custom soundtracks shines again, i'm officially definitely buying this BECAUSE of this news :D
May 25th right I can't wait. I played this almost everyday during both beta periods. Way to go UFG
SWEET HE%% yeah DAY ONE BUY going tell my friends about this lol
Freaken brilliant news.. Combine the 4 player splitscreen with this = awesome. Just picture it 4 players drifting around while listening to music we actually like ahhhhhh
That right there, is seriously all I've been hoping for. Prayers answered. Now Blur and Split Second, you taking notes? All games should have this feature to begin with, especially racing games. Burnout comes to mind. If the 360 didn't already have this feature Burnout would've been returned quickly. Easily one of the worst game soundtracks ever.
