David Thach's Avatar + Posted by David Thach on Dec 13, 2010 // Sr. Manager, International Software Development

I’m excited to share some great news regarding the US SingStore. Many of you have expressed your frustration over the months on the difference in songs on the US and European SingStore. Your voices have been heard and we’re happy to announce today that we have secured an agreement in the US with Universal Music, the world’s leading music company.

So what does this mean for you SingStar fans? This means that moving forward SingStar updates will be one and the same for both stores, and that fans in the US will have access to the same great music and artists as our friends across the pond. In addition to delivering new Universal content to the SingStore, we’ll also be going back and releasing tons of songs in large updates that previously have only been available on the European SingStore as our way of thanking you for your patience as we worked to negotiate this contract.

So, get ready as the first update with Universal content is coming this Wednesday, December 15th. Over 64 new songs will be added to the store this week from popular and legendary artists such as Lady Gaga, Rick James, Lil Wayne, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rihanna, U2, Timbland, Black Eyed Peas, Nirvana, and many more. Ten new song packs also will be added to the store and highlights include rockers Bon Jovi and Kings of Leon, as well as packs from Lady Gaga, Jackson 5, and Sum 41. And this is just the beginning, as there will be lots more great Universal content to come in 2011.

For all you SingStar Dance fans, 11 additional SingStore songs from artists including Ciara, Sister Sledge, P!nk and more have been dance enabled for some dancing fun with PlayStation Move. The full track list for this week’s update is included below, as well as the breakdown on song and dance-enabled track pricing. So, if you’re looking for a way to entertain the family during the holiday break, dust off your vocal cords, break out the dancing shoes and get your SingStar on! See you in 2011 with the next SingStore update…

Alright sweet! This is great news!!! I’m Canadian, and think we’ve been buying stuff from the US store all along, so I think we’re getting it too! (I hope… guess we’ll know by Wednesday then…)

Also, how about some ‘Simon & Garfunkel’ tracks, huh? You guys should put all their best stuff on a blu-ray disc and sell it as a collection like you did Queen and ABBA! Also Michael Jackson Collection!!! You already lost your chance at the Beatles to Rock Band… Don’t let such opportunities for great artists slip by you!

This is amazing news! It’s about time ^_^_

Even though I already imported Singstar Wireless Microphones, I hope those can be released in the US as well!

THANK YOU. Keep this up please.

Now I’ll push up my purchase of SingStar Dance. Didn’t want to buy it with such lame support given to the NA buyers.

Now work on getting us some Wireless mics so we don’t trip over them while dancing and we’ll be set. Though it would also be nice for you to add the SingStore to PSN, so we can buy things that way. It’s so much easier to check the updates on PSN than in the SingStore within the game.

I will not say thanks becouse this is too late, I mean it was more than a year ago when you got the agreement with universal for europe, and you guys know that.
but I will say that you are in the right pathway for being what you once were in America, what you need to focus now is on:

1.Actual songs, please no more 80′s 60′s or songs from my high school time..
2.Needless to say but i will, wirelees mic. Or you can go further than that giving us like a headset wireless mics so we can dance and sing at the same time (that’s to much to ask?).

Really hope this game gets a lot better, you did the first step congrats!

Whoohoo! Thanks for listening to your SingStar fans. The library updates is very well appreciated, and this deal with Universal Music will hopefully open up more music choices for the SingStore. Now if you bring the wireless mics over, I’ll be even more happier :)

Answer question #3 goddammit! What kind of customer relations are you promoting by ignoring perfectly valid questions? Anyone deserves an answer, so answer it, wow, needed to get that off my chest!

Depeche Mode please! They’re my favorite band I’m bummed they aren’t littering the SingStore with all their music videos. Great update though. Would love to see Muse tracks too!

Hey Mywhitenoise,
I just bought a new replacement PS3 and I was able to download all my Singstarstore-bought songs. I simply called SonyUSA and told them what I needed. They didn’t even care about the old PS3 and what happened to it! They just ask for the serial # of the new one and in a couple days I could download the songs again!Very friendly too.

BRING WIRELESS MICS TO THE US! Sick of drunkenly tripping over the cords.

+ a_kiddo on December 15th, 2010 at 1:03 pm said:

AWESOME! Buy a few! Just one tip for both store: MORE ROBYN SONGS!!!! And what about a edition with ONLY MADONNA?? it will be huge!

Oh look, three days and not a response to any questions or concerns. Looks like we are still getting the same service. Imagine that……
