I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    my psvita does that natively on BT headset; plays music during game session, if you stop the music the current game sound goes off too. I just turn down the music volume down completely in the Quick access menu(holding the ps button) yet I can still hear the music faintly but the current Game sound is louder than it.. who else has noticed it or is it just my psvita?

    Bolding “but not games” made skimming through this confusing and awkward.

    What games can’t you play music with that you need this plugin with? I just launched a few and they worked no problem. I suppose Adrenaline is a valid use-case, but to say you can’t play music and games at the same time is a bit misleading without examples.

      Wait! What?! You can play games and play your own music in the background?! You’re joking right?

      Been trying to do that since the PS Vita launch date but every time I do it the music player gets paused by force.

        After reading this article, I did a sanity check and launched both Killzone Mercenary and Uncharted: Golden Abyss and both let me play music while playing the games without the use of a plugin.

    Some examples are Ragnarok Odyssey(Vanilla) or DigimonStory CyberSleuth,…Music Playback is pauzed on these games. Now if it will work with this i wonder. But still, Sd2Vita users can not have music on their vita.
