PlayStation Home SingStar Rooms Launch on September 24th, Buzz! Game Launching Support Announced

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Sep 10, 2009 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

Greetings, Bonjour, Konnichiwa, and NuqNeh, Home-people!

As you may or may not know, we announced the upcoming SingStar rooms for PlayStation Home at gamescom in Cologne, Germany a few weeks ago. For those of you SingStar fiends who have since been blowing up my PM box on the official PlayStation Home forums asking “where are those rooms at, Locust?” I’m positively thrilled to confirm that this new game space will be launching two weeks from today on Thursday, September 24th. You can peep some exclusive sneak peek pics from this new space below.

The first thing you’ll notice when you visit this space on opening day is that dance floor reacts to the shapes you throw and that the music will change according to what style on dance the majority of avatars are partaking in. Note: This is where you thank me for not dropping the polka dance on you last update.

There’s also an interactive jukebox in the space where you and your friends can vote for your favorite tracks and the SingStar Music Quiz (which will be accessible in a future update) is there to test the knowledge of the hardest of hardcore music geeks in Home. To top it all off, there will be tons of rewards to be earned and future events galore, so you’ll want to add this space to your Favorites list right from the get-go. You’ll want to check the doors at the back of the SingStar rooms regularly. You never know what might be popping off inside.

On an unrelated, yet equally awesome note, you’ll notice today that Buzz! fully supports game launching in Home. So gather in the Buzz! space to meet other trivia buffs and launch into this hit party game. And while you’re at it, take a moment to go explore the Mall. If you look hard, you’ll find some new free items hidden therein. These free items will only be available for a limited time, so you’ll need to log-in today. Consider it a gift from us to you, the PlayStation Home community.

What’s universal game launching gonna be like? Like can we setup a match from home or is it just gonna throw us to the main menu of the game and make us start up a multiplayer match like if we just put the game in? Cause if that’s the case what would be the point if you can just put the game in and start up a game with your friends without going through Home to do it. Also is this gonna allow a group of people to stay together no matter what, or is it gonna launch a game and still require invites?
And another question is will Home ever have a party mode where friends can be followed from one space to another? Its annoying to have to invite everyone all the time to change spaces

Please, make sure to work tightly with Sony Santa Monica Studio. So we could get a God of War III Home Space at release date!

I don’t know if this is just me, but with this new area and all I’m really confused as of how nobody seems to have any interests in Michael Jackson like dance moves and music (the game still doesn’t even have any music from him). It would be really nice if they update at least 1-2 of his moves along with 1-2 of his songs with this new area.

I mean for crying out loud if I can do many of his moves in real life my avatar ought to be able to do them, right?

If you really need help just email me up and I’ll even do the mo-cap for you, honestly it’s no sweat and I would really appreciate some tribute to him from the playstation community.

Cool we are getting the Singstar space. My question is, when will the Singstar unlock ables work for us in NA? It’s been too long and never got a proper answer or time frame. Seems it’s been ignored…

I can’t wait for this! I’m on Playstion(c)HOME since it was released out for OB. I must say that the updates are awesome and please keep up the good work!

Though I have a quick question, recently Home has been going down more than usual, is that normal or what? o:
