Default motorstorm gets a buddy list this friday...

Quote:
US, March 21, 2007 - Though Evolution Studios' off-road racer MotorStorm has only been out for a couple of weeks, there are already plans to make additions to it. Starting Friday, March 23, Sony will release a brand new in-game Buddy List to coincide with the European launch date.

The list itself will be available as a downloadable patch that's activated automatically when users log in (followed by a quick reboot). Once installed, the update will add a "Buddies" line to the boot screen located underneath the "Play" icon. Your online friends and their current status will be viewable from this hub, and if your friends are online, they can be directly linked through the MotorStorm list.

This is a much needed feature and I am glad to see they are finally implementing it. I look forward to racing you guys!

so apparently this is a part of 1.6 firmware and will allow any game coded with this in mind to access the xmb buddy list.

Well thats even better.

They said they would have this at launch as i remember them pausing game demos and accessing the XMB.


Also that weird Cat game demo in the japan store.. (I have no idea what its called, in Japanese) I found it off that during the game it will access the internet browser and pull it up over the game..
Now if that can access XMB functions while in game, why cant other games..
Theres a few things that need to be improved there.
Like when im surfing the net.. sure i can browse the XMB and go through my pictures... but if i want to open a pic, i have to close the browser window.. thats crap.. or i can see i have a new messsage, but i have to close the browser to read it..

I Hope thats fixed/changed

You can already see which of your friends are online and what games they are playing. How does this differ?

I still need more practice on MotorStorm before I embarras myself in front of youz.

I believe it means your friends list will now be available while inside motorstorm, and you can invite your friends to play with you

yeah, the 1.60 firmware now supports viewing your friendslist inside the game but only if the game is patched to take advantage of it.
