    Is it just my PS3 but when Im on XMB and motorstorm is in the drive and selected its really loud and distorted as the preview video is rolling, whereas every other game when it is selected in XMB is normal volume wise? Im not talking about when I go into the game - it returns to normal then, im just talking about when in XMB. Or Im going mad.... :suicide:

    It's not distorted by it's REALLY LOUD.

    The devs must have really liked "the Slam"

    On a music point did anyone else reach a stage when playing of hearing Bobby Gillespie whine "oh Jesus Christ I can take it anymore!" and think you're right and switch him off?

    I too have the R88 & feel that there is a substantial volume rise when game video's run in the XMB, usually end up turning TV volume down to 10-12. I think the distortion is down to the cruddy Samsung speakers though.

    The Motorstorm volume is incredibly loud in comparison to the other preview screens but it does not distort at all.

    Haha, well for me the shouty shouty music slowly 'drove' me insane, so I turned it off. Love the Nirvana track but thats about it, wish you could chose your own music really :rolleyes:
