A long time ago Firmware 2.40 was released to PlayStation 3 users that allowed for the usage of custom soundtracks during gameplay. Unfortunately, this feature was only possible so long as the development team behind a game allowed it to be featured. Since then, it seems like it has fallen to the wayside as nobody has heard much about it until now.
Fortunately, United Front Games is picking back up the hype of in-game custom soundtracks and adding it as a feature set to ModNation Racers. However, despite this cool addition, most people probably won’t be taking advantage of it outside of YouTube uploading integration (I’m calling this now), due to the great soundtrack already provided by the developers and sound team.
The confirmation of custom soundtracks was made by Chuck Lacson on the Official PlayStation Blog:
“If you play music on your XMB, that’s the music that will replace the in game soundtrack.”
Is this something you guys plan on taking advantage of or are you just going to stick with what’s provided?
