    Hi, this isn't a serious problem, I'm just curious.
    Yesterday I decided to try out the *cough* 'custom soundtrack' feature of firmware 2.41 and I got a message about it 'not being supported' with PixelJunk Monsters. I found this hard to belive as the music doesn't actually have any sort of interaction with the game itself (Unlike the 360's custom soundtrack feature), but then I remembered a video that gamevideos.com posted (Link coming later). They used PixelJunk Monsters to demonstrate this very feature!

    Anyone got this to work? (Just curious, I can just turn down the music in-game and turn up iTunes)

    Custom Soundtrack support for PixelJunk Monsters will be added in a future game update.

    And so Sony under deliver once again. They really need to kick it up a gear in 2009, if I only owned a PS3 I'd be PISSED.

    I only own a PS3 (unless you count my Super Smash Bros. machine) and I've had more than enough to play. -.-

    I think it might only be in Encore. I'm not sure, though.

    Man I am happy with what the 2.40 update brought to the ps3 but it was all just too sooon.  Nothing other than super stardust hd even supports it.  We need patches asap.

    I've got Encore and it's not working

    Well, I see the Playstation 3 as more of a media center (much better than the 360 in the field).
    People were screaming and jumping up and down over ingame XMB support and when it finally was implemented, the simplest things just don't work as well as they should do.

    For instance, switching games from the ingame XMB takes about as long as quiting the game you're playing and booting up the second one manually. Guess it's because the features that DO work well aren't the ones that'll be useful to me. Just my personal opinion.

    EDIT: I'm not a 360 fanboy or anything, I own all consoles. But I honestly think that Microsoft are ahead of Sony in every field other than media functionality.

    Well said points.  I wasn't really calling you out or anything.  Was simply interested to hear what your thoughts were.  I do think certain aspects of in-game XMB can be streamlined in future updates.
