    Actually... Sounds just amazing to me. I like my share of "add your own touch" in a game. Cladun was great at that, the 2nd version just lacked multiplayer.

    ... I wonder if there'll be a 3rd cladun for the Vita... Or even for PSP =p

    This is actually a good feature to have because many sports games have terrible generic music. I won't use it for games that use music to set the mood for what's happening in game such as RPGs etc.

    It will be perfect for Gundam Seed Battle Destiny though, no need to worry about if this will have Custom soundtracks or not.

    Nice, the psp can also do this (through a plugin, meaning you need to hack your psp), but it wasn't stable, causing lags on some process-extensive games. It does have the ability to block certain/all sound channels, so it can block the BGM, voice, sound effects, etc. (or all of them).

    Not really a must-have function, but it's nice Sony added this into the Vita.

    Errr... This.

    I mean, the thought of playing a game with some random music doesn't entice me at all.

    I play music whenever I have to grind in games.

    Edit: Star Ocean 4 is coming to mind, that had some major grinding and the battle theme got annoying.

    Xbox 1 already had a option to use your own music in games.
    GTA 3 VC and SA supported this.

    I like it while playing online games on my 360. Lets me enjoy my music and play a game at the same time.

    Er.... no.
    Games had to ADD support for the use of custom soundtracks. This is built into the OS, like the 360.

    I'm going to love this while playing FIFA, I always play FIFA with music, very glad to see this happening. I just hate the same old commentaries during a match, totally broken.

    Certain games I have played use random music anyway (Burnout springs to mind), so using your own doesn't feel out of place there. In fact, I'd say most driving games seem "right" with custom music, seeing as if you're actually driving, you can choose what music you're listening to. Maybe not racing games. But still, for most games, you could probably come up with a playlist of music that "fits" the game. Obviously, you wouldn't do it when the game's default soundtrack is good.

    Really? Not even being able to play Rick Astley on anything you want?

    This will be useful when I'm playing RPGs and slowly trying to level up!

    .
    Not all games though. The only demo game that I've tried that pause the custom background music
    is Dynasty Warriors next...whenever you start the game, there is a pop up messages that says,
    "The song has been paused".
