    Apparently this is from Inifinty Ward who made CoD4:

    Well getting the friends list/messaging part is good, they still need to open up music access, which this update doesn't confirm as a feature, though it could still be there.

    I'd be very happy with just that for now. As long as steps are being made made in the right direction I can more than sacrifice the music option for a good while.

    you pay a premiuim from the console and then get ecstatic when they give you a few measley crumbs from the table that should have been included from the start

    but those things don't matter to REAL gamers

    or at least they don't till sony finally has them

    then they're utterly groundbreaking :rolleyes:

    Facist, knock it off. If you don't like Sony, fine. Don't start flame wars over it. If you want to debate like an adult, thats fine too. Just be respectful, please.

    I just can't hold this any longer so I have to ask the stupid question... What is so important about this In Game XMB? I know there is a lot of talk about wanting it etc, but why?

    As for the in game music people ask for, it should be possible by now, I mean even the PlayStation had it... be it you had to take the disk out and put a cd in but it was possible

    the major reason people want it is for messaging people or responding to messages without leaving a game.

    I can see why some people would want that but why such a fuss about it? Personally, I don't know anyone else with a PS3 so the messaging function is kinda void for me but hopefully there's more to it than just the messaging side of it

    well if you dont have any PS3 friends than it wont be helpful but for those who do, its useful. So far Brunout Paradise is the only game with limited in game XMB to allow for messaging. I really dont understand how Criterion was able to do but no other company has done so before now

    And its not only good for messaging but also changing your settings. Depending on what game or blu-ray/dvd you are playing, you may want to use a different resolution and as of now, you cant change it unless you are in the PS3's main menu. Allowing for support within a game or movie would be very helpful

    exactly my point :huh:

    you're viewing this as a positive

    when in reality it's a negative

    you're praising sony for giving you something you should have had all along

    sony fans for some reason cannot accept that they are getting ****ed

    so they make excuses

    madness :huh:

    that's why it's relevant to the topic and the discussion

    when in this thread have I praised Sony? All I have done was copy and pasted some info and then explained the uses for the XMB to another poster

    He does have a point though. This really is something that should have been included from the start. I can forgive Wii for not having it, as there's not really a big focus on friends lists or customization with it. But for a system like the PS3 that totes it's online and customization, this is something that should have been there from day 1.

    No disagreeing that it should have been there from day 1, and that its a bloody pain mid-Guitar Hero someone asking if I want to play CoD4 when I don't. So I'm happy Sony are finally getting off their backsides and doing it, even though it should have been in the majorly dissapointing 2.0 update.

    He's right that it should have been aded day 1, but *****ing and moaning and saying "I'm viewing this as a negative" that they're finally adding it, is a bit biased or whatever. They're adding it, that's a good thing, they took too long to add it, that parts a bad thing, but not worth this kind of fuss and flame baiting.

    Okay, so how about Xbox 360's standard hard drive, and LED rings that don't turn red? Yeah, that's real quality craftsmanship there. :o

    Y'know, I'd rate Microsoft charging you money for nothing, and how they've locked out developers from using the hard drives because of the arcade SKU, as bigger crimes against gamers than fricking in game XMB.

    If anyone's delusional here it's you.

    Don't want to buy the useless themes or picture packs, then just don't. It's not like you are forced into it or there is nothing you can do about it.
