If you guys ever made a Muse or Depeche Mode SingStar I’d be up to buy that.

Singstar really needs some sort of group competition mode, like a tournament tree.

+ Souks83 on July 7th, 2009 at 3:12 pm said:

That’s a lot of Coldplay right there. Might get this game just for that.

+ DigitalTempest on July 7th, 2009 at 3:15 pm said:

I agree with the Muse comment. Muse would make the game just a little more awesome.

Finally more Coldplay! I already bought all the songs individually in Ultimate Pack #1, so I am glad the second pack is all new songs (for North America, anyway… I know the EU SingStore already has them for a long time).

If we had wireless mics in the USA then I would be jumping up and down like Yahoo! However, the SingStar availabitlity of accessories and latest software sucks donkey balls here. We are so behind and it’s annoying to see other people with wireless mics when participating with singstar online as well song selections that are not available in the USA but are USA songs made available for the european countries. Kinda blows in my opinion. You want to give us news? Then give us the same titles and accessories exactly when everyone else gets them. Or else, don’t show us what they have.

End of my rant.

+ Sigmakan on July 7th, 2009 at 3:39 pm said:

Great to see the US finally getting info about singstore updates!

Also good to see some more well known songs appearing (who doesn’t like belting out some Kelly Clarkson? haha).

I hope this is a sign of things to come. Keep up the great work!

Has the right idea.

Gladto get some Coldplay.
Now serve us up some Pearl Jam and G&N please, with a side of Wolfmother. =P

Is there any chance of ever getting Beatles songs in SingStar?

@3 I know there is atleast one Eminem song on there already.

i wonder if this will become a weekly update.

I love Coldpaly

+ jqtaxpayer on July 7th, 2009 at 3:52 pm said:

“No Surprises” might be one of the most depressing songs I’ve ever heard, but it also might be my favorite Radiohead song. Don’t own Singstar, though.

+ DeviantBoi on July 7th, 2009 at 3:52 pm said:

Thank you for finally including SingStar updates on the PSBlog!!

You guys are the greatest!

+ ynp7 on July 7th, 2009 at 3:56 pm said:

Finally! We’ve been waiting for regular SingStore updates on the blog. Great job.

Will there be full lists of the new releases every Thursday going forward?

+ kani-sans on July 7th, 2009 at 3:57 pm said:

I’m so glad I’m not alone after reading the Muse/Sire comments. Seriously, why can’t the US get some DM, Erasure or Morrissey? At least let us give you money to get them off the UK store. Come on Coldplay? Really?


25

+ WackyWeedCreed on July 7th, 2009 at 3:58 pm said:

Radiohead, Nice.


26

+ Squarewannabe on July 7th, 2009 at 4:00 pm said:

I love radiohead and that’s just enough news to make me go out and buy this game :)

Rock Band needs Radiohead as well. Come on HMX!

Awesoem update though. I’m glad to hear it.


27

+ DeviantBoi on July 7th, 2009 at 4:03 pm said:

More Killers tracks, please! And how about you add some Green Day, as well.


28

+ Snuter on July 7th, 2009 at 4:06 pm said:

Please release the Disney songs as DLC in the USA and Canada. (Canada specifically.) Also, I don’t know if it would be posible to make a temporary “copy to hard drive” feature to facilitate the disc swaping process. (Currently it is pretty good but it could be better. It takes a little bit long to disc swap for only 1 or 2 songs from that disc – it slows the party down!) Thanks.

+ SomberResplend on July 7th, 2009 at 4:07 pm said:

Great! It’s good seeing updates for Singstar on the Playstation Blog! Now you guys just need to get all those Depeche Mode songs from Europe over here :P

+ Lex_Yayo_407 on July 7th, 2009 at 4:18 pm said:

What’s up with some Michael Jackson songs? The man just passed away and we still don’t have not one song from that man. Come on SCEE, give us some MJ songs.


31

+ ThreeLeggedFreak on July 7th, 2009 at 4:27 pm said:

Why did you link the word Singstore to the UK Singstore and not the US one?

Don’t get me wrong, great initiative here on the blog, but we want more support, this game could be up there with Rockband and GH if SCE wasn’t so stubborn. For example I want uncensored songs, as the artists originally saw them, I’m not 12 anymore and you could make a sub-community that require CC verification in order to buy the songs.

Overall thanks for this update.

@18
I doubt this would be a weekly update, though that would be a good and welcome idea.

+ dragonmagician on July 7th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

I really, really hope there will be a Singstar: Michael Jackson. But I fear I might need to wait forever.


33

+ PullusPardusUS on July 7th, 2009 at 4:34 pm said:

yeah , michael jackson is a good thing, i might buy it , i already feel like i lost my childhood memories when he died….

but i know why they can’t do it the reason people will assume that Singstar are making money off his death and that is really bad, but people are always into the negative side.

+ sscoolChea on July 7th, 2009 at 4:36 pm said:

awful song selection …coldplay is nice but come on …country freakin music…wheres the r and b and rock/alternative…current stuff please ..every freakin artist has a video out these days and we get trace adkins …..sara evans ??????? people who approved these song selection should work in a different department .


35

+ jelly_bean on July 7th, 2009 at 4:51 pm said:

Great update… Looking forward to sing some songs from Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera in the future… A song pack from them would be awesome :D


36

+ JoeDuke4 on July 7th, 2009 at 5:01 pm said:

PLEASE release ALL of the songs on the ps2 singstars.

ALL of Singstar Rocks, Amped and 80s! And mroe songs by those artists, you need more classic kareoke tunes!also the FULL song of American Pie and Vincient by Don McLean.

Enough of the euro centric alternative pop!

When are the wireless microphones coming?!!!!!

+ JameSoCal on July 7th, 2009 at 5:47 pm said:

It would be nice if the SingStar Disney songs were brought to the SingStore for download… NTSC is out of luck to date since the PS2 Disney disc is PAL only. Please make these available- my daughters (and I!) want to sing them!

+ luizcab on July 7th, 2009 at 5:48 pm said:

Shaun… try to get Sony to match the licenses across regions. I know music/video licensing is not an easy task but it’s good to have that as a goal!!

cheers!

+ j_amethyst on July 7th, 2009 at 6:03 pm said:

It’s nice to see a Sngstar update here!!! I really hope it happens every time the singstore is updated (every 2 weeks, like in the EU blog…
Even knowing no one will respond, I have a question:
That Singstar Sampler Pack that appeared in the ESRB site, for what I can see, it is a mix of Singstar Vol.3 and Singstar Pop Edition songs (please don’t miss Billie Jean)… Does this will come with the wireless mics for US??? Any word of when it will launch???

PS: I would prefer the whole Singstar Vol. 3 playlist without any alterations, but… a mix is not that bad… And I’ll have the music I waited for so long: David Bowie’s Space Oddity!!! and other nice one Amy Winehouse’s Rehab

Go to HMV.com for wireless singstar mics! I got them and I don’t know how I lived without them!

+ LokeSTL on July 7th, 2009 at 7:58 pm said:

I’d like to have the Bluetooth mics that were supposed to be developed. I’ll take wireless mics while waiting, but don’t give up on the bluetooth mics please. :)

And please get some better music on the store. MJ would be nice. How about some 80′s power ballads?

And how about some more bundles. It gets a expensive after a while, and the bundles help out a little.

Thanks for the update and keep them coming. :)

For a second I thought I saw “A Place for My Head” by Linkin Park. THAT would have been interesting… I think. Well… seeing a 13-year-old kid screaming into a mic…? Yeah, I guess not.
