PS3 cant play music over a game... but 360 can?

I dont understand how it is that Sony can say Ps3 only does "everything" when its just a blatant lie

 

I paid 300 bucks for this thing, all I would like is to have my own custom soundtrack while I blast helghast, defy the gods of olympus, or sneak around some metal gears...

but nope...

 

There is no justification for this, I mean you cant just update the system? Ive heard it before "oh but developers need to program it in" no they dont, Sony just needs to stop being lazy and make the Playstation Menu(the one you hit the guide button for) override this crap about "Music content cannot be played during use of this game" orly? really? its sooooo hard for this system to multitask???

 

I call bull****, that stupid 360 I bought years ago could play music over GTA4 and Gears of War right out the box I brought it home in, but Sony still hasnt made this BASIC FUNCTION WORK???

 

Fail....

Meh. I don't see why people think it's a big deal. Game consoles are meant to play games, not play music or let you view photos.

 

Spoiler
Since when did Sony say it could do "everything"?

meh, I only paid an exorbitant amount of money for it, it would be nice if it was halfway as competent as another console of equal value

ever see a sony commercial? nah, me either....

Well, PS4 did just come out. Why didn't you buy that?

Why dont you answer the topic at hand instead of making excuses, maybe I wanted to play all these games for PS3?

In game music may seem great and all however it generally poses as more of a distraction rather than anything good.

If you do want in game music on the PS3, there is always the Astro Mixamp and a good pair of headphones.

How many music playing devices do you own?

Why would one of those not be just as good if not better to use while gaming?

An astro what?

I dont mind a distraction, its just I enjoy my games, but of course lets say Im trophy hunting, or speed running, some slayer would make it much more enjoyable, mundane games on 360 like Dark Sector were awesome cuz I could just shoot things and play my own music

I just wish sony would get off its **bleep** and make an app or something Smiley Sad

What is more convenient than 5000 songs on a touch screen at your side while you game? Doesn't everyone have some form of mp3/iPod device these days?

What you are calling convenience sounds more like a redundancy.

Create solutions, or moan about a minor detail. One gets you what you want.

Any guesses which one?

 

Good luck. Choose wisely.
