I did a google search for it and this thread popped up. Not much else for recent information unfortunately. I have never used a custom soundtrack before while playing games, but it seems like a lot of people clearly want this feature available.

Custom Soundtracks was the feature I used most on my Xbox 360, with the exception of playing games. Every time I powered on my Xbox 360, I literally started playing my custom soundtracks. The only time I wasn't playing my custom soundtracks was when the OS wouldn't allow it, such as when I was watching movies. So yeah, I used the feature every time my Xbox 360 was running, even when playing games. I wish it would've been included with Xbox One. I'm part of the Xbox One update preview beta and so I have access to the private forums on xbox.com that relate to the firmware updates. There is a "form" to request features that the Xbox community would like added and you can see what the other beta users request. The most popular request I've seen from beta users, and myself, is the return of Custom Soundtracks. I am really not sure if Microsoft will bring it back. I hope they do but so far, it's not looking like it's going to happen.

why offer an option for free user ripped music when they can charge to use their service? i belive sony also did this on the ps4. this new gen isnt about you and what you want. its about how much the can get from you.

I loved the feature at first on the 360, but I remember running into a few games where the music didn't stop playing when there was dialogue going on (I think it might have been one of the Skate games). It wasn't a huge deal because I don't play dialogue-heavy games with custom soundtracks, but it was enough to make me stop using them. My laptop is right in front of me as I play, so now I just listen to music on that and don't even bother to turn on my sound system for games.
I do want to be able to put music on my XB1, though, so I could use it for a few in-game features (namely WWE entrance themes). I've been a huge fan of that since it was introduced on the original Xbox and I can't imagine having as much fun creating people without it.
