  1. Remember when custom soundtracks were a thing in games?

    1. MegasonicZX


      Yeah, don't know why they seemed to have moved away from them too. Even back on the PS3 there weren't really all that many games that you could use CS's on. Don't know if the 360 was any better.

      Only the Xbox was great for custom soundtracks particularly on GTA games.

      Yeah, on Xbox 360 it was as simple as either putting in a USB stick or burning tracks from a CD. I usually use it to play Sonic Youth (Crush 40) during the Time Eater fight.

      I can't think of many examples of games with custom soundtrack support. Only stuff like racing games e.g. Gran Turismo 5/Project Gotham Racing series, think Burnout Paradise too and the GTA games on the original Xbox.

      One of the earliest examples of custom soundtrack support was Ridge Racer. It wasn't advertised though and was more like an unintended side effect since Ridge Racer stored the entire game on the PS1 memory (it was an arcade port after all) so people swapped discs for songs.

      I honestly never understood the interest in it. I can't stand playing games with music that I don't associate with them. It's strange to replace the songs. But having said  that, it's theoretically such a simple feature if the system supports background applications so I don't get any it's not done anymore for those who want it. There likely wasn't enough demand or interest to bother maintaining the feature.

      Now that I think about it, there is an app for Xbox One that lets you play MP3's while doing whatever. Just turn off the game's music and you're good to go.

      @Blue Blood For me, it was just for the games where the soundtrack was uninteresting. I know I definitely would've killed for a way to play different songs over a game like say, batman arkham city or tales of berseria since I didn't like the music in either all that much although I can understand what you mean.

      @Blue Blood It's for games that either have licensed soundtracks, usually sports games, or games that with music that kinda blends into the background. Games like SSX or Wipeout HD were enhanced greatly by not only being able to play my own music, but having integrated playlists that automatically replace the default music.
