What’s the word on SingStar Latino? Is it being released this year?

Sorry, but this is the worst update ever.
I wonder if Sing Star is dead in America now?

It’s a pity since I’ve spent so much money on what was a great franchise.
Europe gets good updates but we get stuck with Cotton Eyed Joe and a couple of songs no one’s ever heard of.

If this is the future of Singstar, count me out.

Where did you come from Where did you go
Where did you come from Cotton Eye Joe

Singstar needs more fun songs like these. More Weird Al and crazy oddities like this help add some humor to parties.

+ DeviantBoi on October 12th, 2009 at 11:15 am said:

Oh, and please, more Heroes del Silencio. La Herida is a good song, but they have a bunch of better songs. Chispa Adecuada? Sirena Varada? Avalancha? Iberia Sumergida?

This is possibly the worst update I’ve seen. I appreciate the hard work, but they need to try MUCH harder.

** RELEASE SINGSTAR WIRELESS MICS IN THE U.S.**

Also, quit giving us crappy songs. How about some Howard Jones or something with a little more quality. You guys are terrible at marketing and supporting a product. Listen to us or get lost please.

+ Taha on October 12th, 2009 at 11:37 am said:

Why don’t you guys release some Indian songs to the US SingStore? You guys already made SingStar Bollywood for the PS2 (but only released in Europe)… atleast put those songs up on the store.

I’ve given up on this franchise for the NA market. Every other rhythm/signing game out there seems to have ZERO issues getting current North American talent into their games except SingStar.

Sub license the name to EA/Harmonix/MTV…let them run with it please.

When can we see my favorite Brazilian singer CéU in SingStar? Sony, it would be awesome if you could look into her. :) please with sugar on top!

When is the US going to get the HOME rewards for some of the trophies for SingStar? It’s been about 6 months now.

When are we getting the HOME rewards for the SingStar trophies in the NA region?

It’s been like 6 months.

+ Whovee on October 12th, 2009 at 12:17 pm said:

really?…..stil no decent updates, it’s kinda like going to that neighborhood store that u know has nothing good but u still go because u found something decent there a few times. what does your music deal let u guys do?…..is it that u guys only get certain songs from albums or full albums and randomly pick songs off it?….please do something to save this game…..

P.S. Save Faith & a .45

This week in the sing star store: more useless content for an abyssimal game no one plays. However, many of us do want to play Dissidia– which still isn’t on PSN.

Terrible.

I don’t normally do this, but need to make 1 song request since the SingStar updates have been very lacking the past few MONTHS, especially compared to the European update.

You really need to bring “Same Girl” by R.Kelly and Usher to the SingStore. It would be the best duet evar.

That said, looks like I’ll be creating a UK PSN account soon if these updates don’t improve.

+ Wiscompton on October 12th, 2009 at 1:17 pm said:

LOL. Cottoneye Joe is considered one of the wost songs of all time. I like it when you tax dumb people with lousy taste in music. Please use the list below for future updates. Next week should have Rico Suave (#37).

hi Erin,
i know you’re suffering from all the complaints but honestly, we’re all suffering from the recent updates.
You’d better think of a way to improve this or you’ll lose the market in the US region.
If you want our support, pls show us some love… well, soon enough.
Anyway, it’s good to have u here.
Better luck next time though.

WTF? Why even bother with an update if you are not going to even at least half *** it (sad that half *** update would be acceptable)? Seriously you can’t be that dense to think US gamers would be thrilled with this and the past crappy updates. A great game shot down by an extreme lack of support. Don’t know why I am posting this as it won’t do no good… RIP US Singstar…

@17 I wouldn’t say the game is abysmal, but the PS3 and Singstar certainly have one thing in common. Both have the potential to be epic, yet both have fallen short of reaching that potential.

Everything about Singstar is perfect except for the songs…a pretty important factor in a karaoke game. Wireless mics would be nice too.

Obviously, songs are never going to be EVERYBODY’s taste, but there are so many obvious issues and fixes that I simply don’t get. For one, why can’t songs from the PS2 be uploaded to Singstar online? That would GREATLY increase the value right away. Another option would be the ability to upload songs from discs to the HDD so you don’t have to switch all the time. Either that, or make entire discs available to download. There are so many ways to make the game better, but I feel like they are being ignored.

Make a website for the suggestions, and a place for suggestions on the main “online” section in the singstar games, where there is a list of all the musics that exist (simple, use the list from iTunes, it’s the biggest one).

Then we could see the top 10 wanted songs, and you make separate “wanted songs” for each “places”. I mean, one top for europe, one for US… (you could subdivide Europe too, depending).

Then instead of having TONS of new content nobody will download each week, we’d have, let’s say, 5-10 new songs per week based on the “top wanted” list. This way, nobody could say we don’t have what we want, and we would all have what we want (in general). You could also add other songs you want to add at the same time…

This is not even a suggesion finally, it’s NEEDED for the sake of this game. And I like this game, but if I have to buy other games like karaoke revolution (coming to the PS3) I’ll do so one day. Still, I prefer to have the videoclips and the way singstar is made. And I’d say that this game will die against karaoke revolution if it doesn’t do this.

1 song I have heard of with 4 I haven’t… yet EU gets Lady Gaga, Marvin Gaye, Duffy, Robert Palmer, Supremes, etc… :(

Hopefully one day we could get the same choices…

(Read after the post before this one)

With what I ask for, EVERYONE will be pleased (well, the majority, wich is the reverse situation right now), it’s gonna be simpler for the devs to find the right songs to add, we’ll all buy the new songs since we’ve been waiting for them for months/years to come, you’ll make tons of money, we’ll pay and lose our money, but we’ll be happy to pay for those songs. And you’ll be happy to make money with those too…

Also, it takes one single guy one single day to build the web version of the website… Don’t tell me it’s hard to do this!! And even if you don’t use it all the time, having this would be a really good start for us to think you’re actually interrested in what we think..

Who’s with me? If you are, just say:
I WANT A WANTED LIST!

or just discuss… And even if nobody would wants it on this blog, it’s evident that it’s a need…

Please answer this.

You know how they say it’s better to let people think you’re a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt?

I think they should learn from this, and not update until they can start having updates that aren’t utterly humiliating to the franchise. I’d rather have nothing at all than these updates. They say you can’t please everybody, but does this even please a minority?

+ saintaqua on October 12th, 2009 at 6:33 pm said:

No wireless mics.
No good updates.
No responses from anyone at SingStar hq or Sony to appease our anger.

Seriously, I know that licensing can be an issue, but you are SONY, you own like half the world’s music.

No more excuses and no more horrid updates. Get Universal licensed in the US and get us wireless mics.

And no, I don’t want to import them so no one suggest that, it’s stupid that we have to do that anyhow.

I want results for this franchise or I want it to just go away altogether.

Sorry to nag at your blog, Erin, but you people at Sony and Singstar need to listen to your fans!!

how about even putting some of the more popular songs from the ps2 versions into the store, obviously you already have them licensed. my kids would love taylor swift from singstar country, but who wants to spend $30 for a couple songs that are actually decent on that?


45

+ wandererbr1976 on October 13th, 2009 at 6:52 pm said:

Well, I think it’s pretty clear that SCEA doesn’t care about this franchise. The EU store gets 29 songs, the US store gets 6. Why not make it easy for us to buy EU content, then, since we don’t get barely anything in America?

Another awful update as per usual. Can one single person at Sony recognize the mess of the SingStore and call a bit order to it? Whoever manages SingStar support in America should be ashamed of the waste of their great product with such terrible support. The quality of this update is not worth even a fraction of what Europe gets this week.
I wonder if they will ever learn.
