Nina, it iis great to see that PS is adding more and more songs. Any plan on posting songs for Sony BMG artists such as Shakira, Ricky Martin and many others spanish speaking songs?

Thanks in advance

I’m sorry. Not my kind of songs. And I bought Singstar the week it came out, in hopes of having a fun experience with songs i know…

I’ve been holding my breath since then but too bad it seems like it’ll never happen…

:(

Why not put up HELLA songs, excuse my language–songs that appeal to all different audiences… rather than focus on one (older audience who happens to play Singstar)??

Put more modern music in there and I guarantee you your singstore sales will go up.

Queen is amazing. You youngsters know not. Ive already bought my first SingStar game in SingStar Queen. I cant wait. I also got SingStar Vol.2 with the two microphones because I dont have any mics. Ill sell Vol. 2 as soon as I receive it. I can not wait to get SingStar Queen. Please give me more tracks. Being an avid Queen fan, i and other know that there are dozens of amazing songs of Queen’s that are not included on the disc. And its a BluRay disc, there should have been twice as many songs but how would you make your money from DLC then? Very annoying. Still, I cant wait to get SingStar Queen. Please give me more Queen songs.

any chance that we can get normal american songs. im pretty sure the majority of people on this blog live in the the U.S. and at the moment Lips is starting to look more current and fun with tracks from Lady GaGa, Kanye West. So please tell us fellow Americans that you do have Popular American songs in “store” for us

    If it\’s not possible to get it released in the US, we can\’t give it to you. We do try but sadly, out of or hands, simple as that.

    We are working really hard to get more tracks for the US and but again – we are dependent on what we can get and not what we\’d like to have. Sorry.

    Hope you understand that it really isn\’t just about picking songs and releasing them. I wish it was! :)

Please please please PLEASE post at least every fortnight on singstar information. Even if it’s just to post up a video you guys found entertaining or a clip of a studio member having fun…

Also Nina if you could PLEASE answer 1 simple question. Will there be a long wait before the Queen songs hit the US Singstore? I kinda don’t want to have to disc swap, unless there’s some ulterior reason why it would be beneficial to me to disk swap.

Why shoudl I pay $1.60 USD per track AND diskswap if the singstore is $1.50 USD and I don’t have to disk swap?

    Hi,

    not the first time I am answering this question for some reason :) – and you should be getting fortnightly updates from now on.

    Queen is only going to be out on disc for the time being. I am not sure whether any tracks will ever make it to the US store as sadly, that\’s not up to us.

    Sorry to be vague but I simply don\’t know. (Otherwise I\’d make my living as a fortune teller :))

    Thanks,
    Nina

I haven’t seen Singstar: Queen at any stores, Gamestop, Target, Best Buy etc. in my area.

I checked there websites and a majority of the stores say’s the release date is the 11th?

but you guys say the 4th.

oh how frustrating but I can’t wait to get it.

+ DylanVR on August 4th, 2009 at 6:35 pm said:

I love SingStar and have been recommending it to my friends here in the US. I’ve discovered some amazing UK bands like Suede in the US SingStore, but it’s frustrating to see songs from great groups like Yazoo and Erasure released in the UK SingStore but not in the US SingStore. The development work is already done, so I really hope that these songs can be released in the US once the rights issues have been worked out! An Erasure song was already released on a SingStar PS2 disc, so this should be possible. (I’m also still looking for a website to buy the wireless mics…)

Thanks to Sony for providing the best karaoke experience in existence!!!

Hi everyone,

On the availability of wireless mics in the US: All I can say is that myself and/or the SCEA team will continue to keep you updated on when they will become available and as and when we get that information.

Unfortunately, that is all the information I can get for you right now.

Thanks,

Nina

Thank you, Nina.

I love that you take your time to answer questions. I really love the Singstar games, and I am looking forward to this and all future store updates.

Keep up the good work!

Now, I have another question… I know the Europe gamers get promotions/contests where they get the chance to win extra slots to post videos on their accounts. Will that ever be the case for the U.S.?

+ adpham2 on August 5th, 2009 at 12:41 pm said:

i’ve been a singstar fan since the original ps2. i’ve always thought it was better than ‘lips’.

however, there are a few gripes that i have.
first, i’m very disappointed how there is sooooo much 80′s and not enough current songs. i appreciate the old stuff, but current songs can reach a broader audience. the same goes with european songs, i like them, but how about some more american songs.

speaking of american songs, i was soo excited to see hoobastank to be in the singstore, but sooooo disappointed that it wasn’t available in the US. also, i saw the Jamiroquai songs, but the one i reeeallly wanted was virtual insanity. again, it’s for the UK and not US. how come they can’t make ALL the songs available to EVERYONE!!


77

+ adpham2 on August 5th, 2009 at 12:41 pm said:

…continue

lastly, i thought it was a great idea for rock band 2 to give a small fee to incorporate songs from their first disc. i was anticipated the same for singstar. i have a good amount of ps2 singstar and it would’ve been great if those songs were ALL incorporated with the ps3 singstar. although it was great to have people swap disc so they are able to use their old ps2 singstar, but it is a great deal of hassle to stop a game in a middle of party to swap disc. when i play rock band 2 at a friends house, the game never stops b/c all of the download games, rock band 1 & 2 are already there.

if these issue were fix then i would say singstar will be one of my favorite games on the ps3 system…but of these few flaws…it’s just a good/great game

p.s. you might want to consider online gaming w/ the sony eye. that would be soooo awesoome!! oh yea…like everyone else have said…..wireless mics.

p.s.s. i really didn’t mean to make post a nagging/complaining one. it was meant to help improve the game. i think it’s cool that there’s someone actually here answering our questions. thanks!

+ JAK620 on August 5th, 2009 at 6:17 pm said:

Cool. When can we get singstar pop for PS3?

Also, if you have Rock Band series for PS3, RB lets you install previous versions onto the PS3 HD so that you can play all RB1 and download tracks on RB2.

Please Please Please Please do that for Singstar!!!!

was just wondering since I have had singstar for almost a year now and the updates use to be on tuesdays now its thurs but its 12:48am eastern standard here friday morning and I got the software update this morning. But the singstore hasnt been updated yet???In response to a few posts it would be nice to be able to download content from previous games to the hard drive to stop the having to switch discs. I guess you would have to incorperate a one time usage code like rockband uses for copyright reasons and piracy. Cudos so far with dealin with the U.S. copyright laws and such and getting a fair variety of music, some more hard rock from 80′s and 90′s would be nice, and some more country not rehashed songs from the already released country singstar would be awsome.

New to the Singstar world and love it. However so far I only have volume 2. I have a question regarding additional packs/game discs:

1) if I purchase another pack, am I basically purchasing the Singstar engine as well as songs?

2) Does the PS3 treat each Singstar as an individual game or do all of my songs in my library (both downloaded and on other discs) register in the Singstar library list so I will at least know which songs I have available to me?

3) is it possible to transfer songs from a game disc to the HDD (ala Rockband) so I don’t need to switch game discs constantly?

Cheers!

+ Powerlunch on August 7th, 2009 at 8:53 pm said:

@overkil6
OK no matter what disc you insert all of your downloaded content will appear in your main menu.
And for your third question. No, Singstar has a feature called disc swap, by pressing select, where you are able to change disc without ending a game. It would be great if we can use that huge 20, 40, 60, 80+ gig hard drive that came with our PS3′s but perhaps it will come in a future update.

So, the update should be going live in the next couple of days but I am still waiting for the confirmation. Will let you know as soon as i can upload your content for you in the US.
