Will sounds of the show ever return?

One thing Iím really really missing from this years game is sounds of the show. I donít get how it was available on ps4 but not a next Gen console. Does anyone think itíll ever come back?

Personally, no. It’s never been confirmed officially (I think) but people have speculated it’s because of the game having to have parity between both Xbox and PlayStation on NG. So unless Microsoft resolve whatever issue doesn’t allow for uploading of music onto the console, then it won’t change.

Really disappointing from SDS: 1. Weren’t upfront about this before the game release. 2. Haven’t offered an explanation or possible future resolution.

They just ripped out a major feature and acted as though nothing happened. The game is worse for it.

They were upfront before game release for both '21 and '22. In their FAQ on their website it stated that Sounds of the Show wouldn't be in the game for Xbox consoles, Nintendo Switch, or PS5 in the same capacity that it was in PS4.

This information was known prior to the launch of both games.

Like others, I am skeptical that it will return. Iím still on PS4 so I can still enjoy sounds of the show at least for this year

I believe the reason is Microsoft doesnít allow unlicensed music onto their games, there could be a fix for this however.

What youíd have to do is incorporate a third-party license music streaming service such as Spotify. Sots makers would create playlist on Spotify, when youíre in the sots screen it has you log into Spotify account, choose the song and done.

1. Solves parity and unlicensed music issue
2. Encourages fans to use the feature because itís easier
3. Spotify gains new subscribers


Now that said do I think theyíre gonna do this? No.

Deep down, Iím hoping 23 comes to PC. Im sure the SOTS question wonít matter once mods become available.

Re: Will sounds of the show ever return?

The question was is it ever coming back.

We all know it was excluded in 21 and again 22 except for the PS4.

No one knows for sureÖ..but the meter is heavily leaning on highly doubtful.

Re: Will sounds of the show ever return?

I dont think it will ever come back. If we assume the game essentially needs to be the same across all platforms. Xbox could make sots possible as I assume its possible even though it may not be possible now. The Switch seems to be the issue as I dont think Nintendo would ever allow that. Maybe if Sony did something that you could upload them on the cloud and had to be connected to the internet to use it but idk how that would even work.

Re: Will sounds of the show ever return?

since it's not integral to diamond dynasty, my bet is no,
though I am still on ps4 Show and fortunate to enjoy SotS.

and I don't plan on moving on to the ps5 Show until there is no ps4 Show to be had.
so I'm hoping I still have a couple years left after Show 22 to enjoy SotS

Bro it's ok. SDS does not need you to continuously cape for them. They can handle the criticism on some of their decisions.



OP: It is not looking good for SoTS to return expect on PS4. With the Switch now in the fold, that is pretty much the death nail.
