    PS3 Play music?

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Thu Feb 07, 2013 8:53 pm

    One of the things I loved about Xbox dark souls was the ability to play music while playing the game. I was very surprised when the PS3, with all its extra power, does not support this.

    I'm 99% sure the PS3 cannot play music and the game, but I want to verify with the community that there is not an app or some work around that would allow this (besides hardware fixes, like rewiring).

    So any chance of this? Right now I just play music through a different channel on my reciever, but it'd be nice to hear the dark souls sounds.

    I believe Microsoft had some sort of contract that had to do with copyright when it came to playing music on the Xbox and other consoles. I can't remember the exact details, but it seems as though the only consoles that are allowed to do this are the ones that are produced by Microsoft.

    I dont understand that?
    Microsoft can't own "music" so, I think theres another reason, or I'm missing something.

    It varies from game to game. Some will let you, others won't. I'm pretty sure Tekken games, and most fighting/driving, will let you play music and play. Only thing I miss about my X-box.

    Yea, I miss it as well.
    Seems like something that should be standard on any console.

    And patents created in the US apply to other countries as well 😕

    Wow, that absolutely ridiculous!
    ****ing Microsoft. They would try and control what you listen to while gaming. That must be a pretty sound patent. The PS3 still doesn't support it sad

    They can patent custom soundtracks all they want, I can still play music from my computer.

    I have 2 stereos, PS3 is hooked to the 7 speaker entertainment system, while I play music on the other which has 2 large speakers. Who needs a silly gaming console for music?

    Everything's hooked up to my surround sound; unsure if my speaker can play from two sources simultaneously but I don't think so.

    I have a small laptop with no internet connection that can barely do anything outside of playing music and movies. So whenever I want to listen to something I put on one of my playlists and listen while playing.

    It's a shame that the PS3 won't be able to play music though. I'm sure most rpg games won't put in the feature to listen to your own music either so I'm left with playing my music on racing games which I've never been a big fan of.
