Ah, que bueno. Desafortunadamente, no me encanta cantar antes de otras personas, ademas de que mi PS3 ya esta descompuesta. Que dolor. Sin embargo, te agradezco para propocionarnos con tantas oportunidades para karaoke en espanol. Imagino que no muchos ofrecen esta opcion.

Muchas gracias. :)

I don’t think I made any errors there- maybe a preposition, but anyone who’s studied languages knows those are supreme pains in the ***.

Hi Nina,

Thanks for the update. A lot of good songs, I was wondering if there are any plans for the future to add Mecano songs to the Spanish library. Mecano has so many good songs, and it was so popular both in Spain and Latin America. Just a suggestion.

Oh, and please, please, please, bring more Vaya con Dios — love them!


13

+ anthroposatiros on August 3rd, 2009 at 8:44 am said:

I forgot to add.

Nina,

The European store already has Time Flies (by Vaya con Dios) in their library. Any plans to give us that one too?

Lame, I’m sorry I’m 27 and I don’t even know these songs.
In English

Strange Kind Of Woman (A side remix 96) – Deep Purple
Chariot – Gavin DeGraw
Flowers & Football Tops – Glasvegas

Fading Like A Flower – Roxette
It Must Have Been Love – Roxette

Just A Friend of Mine – Vaya Con Dios

I’ve never heard of any of them. Why do you keep adding songs that are not even popular? My parents are not using my PS3, I am so enough with the songs from 1930′s and beyond. I still enjoy a few but that’s all we are getting lately oldies. I want new rock, Seether, Breaking Ben., Linkin Park, All American Rejects, Metallica, etc

    Hiya,

    I\’m sorry that you don\’t find anything this week you like (or know).

    I can assure you though that some of these are very popular with the SingStar community, believe it or not :).

    How about the Vagrant songpack?

    Cheers,

    Nina

Thanks for posting the US updates on the blog. At least Singstar has some visibility here now and we don’t have to go looking at the SCEE sites.

While I agree that more modern music is great, in my house it is the older “kids” (parents) that play Singstar the most ;-)

******************************************

@Nina

Please comment on whether we are going to see a U.S. release of the wireless mics or not. We are constantly asking the question, and are ignored EVERY TIME. Even a “There are currently no plans…” answer would be sufficient. A little communication on this matter would be appreciated.

    I\’m sorry, I try and not ignore anyone on here and I like to make sure I giue guys the right answers rather than just an easy \’I don\’t know\’.

    Unfortunately, I haven\’t been able to get an answer on this myself yet. Hope to have one soon for you though. Sorry for the delay.

Hello Nina,

I have an important question, and this is the number 1 reason why I haven’t bought Singstar yet (2nd being no wireless mics in the US, 3rd being songs tied to your machine and not tied to your account), anyways, my question is, is there a plan for an “adult” subcommunity? What I mean is, will it ever have uncensored songs with the original uncensored music video (where a music video is available). You can require CC activation and verification to make sure you’re not selling them to a minor and those songs in the subcommunity would not be able to be redeemed by PSN cards and would only be sold by Credit Card.

IMO this would be really good as you’d expand your audience, I know I wouldn’t buy Korn’s “Freak on a Leash” right now because I know it’s censored and I would be weary of buying Pink’s “Just like a pill” because it might be censored. As far as keeping it family friendly, I totally and completely understand, hence why you would have this subcommunity for people that want those songs, you could even have 2 versions of the songs, one that’s family friendly and one that is uncensored. I hope this is actually something that’s considered.

+ ThreeLeggedFreak on August 3rd, 2009 at 9:27 am said:

Thanks for adding lots of Spanish and Portuguese songs btw


24

+ RunnerKyle on August 3rd, 2009 at 9:34 am said:

Great, 9 Roxette songs – I keep saying there aren’t enough Roxette songs on SingStar. Who makes picks this crap anyway?

The song options for SS are really disappointing! Then you release Queen songs, but on a disc? I would have bought a couple songs but there’s no way I’m buying an entire disc of Queen for SingStar!

SS is a great game, but very poorly managed. Seriously, 9 Roxette songs???


25

+ LokeSTL on August 3rd, 2009 at 9:40 am said:

@Nina

Thanks for the response! Not the news I would have liked, but an answer non-the-less. Hoping to see those wireless mics here soon. My SingStar purchases are on hold until then. Thanks again!


26

+ LN_MEXWARRIOR on August 3rd, 2009 at 9:48 am said:

Thanks for the update Nina!

I like the added spanish songs but can we get some more recent hits please?

Also the english songs were not that great. We also need more current hits.

The competition is definitely beating you guys at putting better hit songs for their users… =[

+ Craazy on August 3rd, 2009 at 10:22 am said:

Though I am happy about a few of the tracks (Bangles, Roxette)….I would like to see some more recent *American* music on the store say within the last 5 years (I was pumped when Santogold showed up on the store).

Also there is a HUGE lack of American Grunge music…..Nirvana, STP, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, etc…

I dont know a whole lot of British pop songs, probably because I am American that is not to say they are bad, I just wont buy them because I am not familiar with them.

+ Draven71 on August 3rd, 2009 at 10:28 am said:

I agree about the comment made earlier about not purchasing a whole disc of Queen songs or even the ABBA songs for that matter simply because I’m only interested in a couple of songs. Why aren’t these released to the SingStar Store so we can cherry pick the titles we want? The die hards are going to buy the disc anyways so why not offer them in the online store?
For those inquiring about the wireless mics just order them online already, they are really easy to find. I’ve had mine for a few months and love them.

    Hiya,

    Again, we\’d love to get things like ABBA and Queen on the store for you but it is just not possible sometimes for the US.

    Possibilities for releases are limited for now but we are constantly making an effort to resolve any issues we encounter daily.

    It\’a very slow process and we can\’t even be sure that these things will ever be possible but there\’s always trying and hoping… :)

Singstar Queen sneaking its way out onto store shelves is only rivaled by Snake sneaking his way back into Shadow Moses in full OctoCammo.

I don’t have singstar, but I’ve noticed many of the songs on singstar do not have a home on either rockband or guitar hero, even though they are definitely “band” songs. Is there a correlation here, or just coincidence?

Can you guys please allow people to download their singstar bluray discs to the HD. It’s a total pain having to change multiple disc each time you want a different set of songs. Not cool!

Rolling Stones (Again I know theres already one there, but we need waay more)
The Cars (Specifically ‘Drive’)
Billy Idol (Specifically ‘Eyes Without A Face’)
The Smiths
When In Rome (Specifically ‘The Promise’)

Any plans for any of these? I would buy all of them! Thanks : ]

One suggestion:
Can you allow us to sort the SingStore downloads by release date? If I miss a couple weeks it’s hard to remember what was already out. I’d like to just see what’s been added in the last, say, 2 months.

I have been a fan of sing star since the first disc came out for the PS2. I was really happy when it made the jump to PS3, but i am unhappy with the songs that the USA get’s compaired to other countries. The UK get coldplay, depeche mode, U2, and other great bands, the USA seems to get left overs. I will continue to play but i just wanted my voice to be heard, “equal rights to the same songs for all players”
