156w ago - Technical Project Management Manager David Thach has confirmed today news of a SingStar European Track Catalog alongside 64 songs incoming on December 15, 2010.
To quote: 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...
158w ago - SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer at London Studios has shared details on the SingStore PS3 releases for this week today, as follows:
Hello and welcome to the penultimate SingStore update of 2010!
And THIS time, let me start off with the song packs because I can hardly contain myself. It's true, ask anyone at SingStar HQ and they will tell you that I have probably been a little too excited about the brand new , exclusive and fantastic Bon Jovi: Rock song pack for a while now. What do they know, huh?
So, apart from the brand new, exclusive and fantastic Bon Jovi: Rock song pack (did I already mention that one?) we also have an equally brand new, exclusive and fantastic Sum 41 one on offer. How's that for some rock on the store? There is also a nice litte Meat Loaf collection plus two Essentials packs: Electro Pop and Pop Punk.
My top three songs this time are by Louis Armstrong, Mudhoney and Vic Reeves & The Wonder Stuff and I'll be practicing the 'Barbie Girl' song for definite!
If you haven't done so already make sure to check out our brand new website which we launched a couple of weeks ago. It's nice and shiny and you can do lots of fun stuff.
159w ago - Today Sony PlayStation Community Member Envisager has visited the SingStar HQ and posted up a video of the experience for fans.
To quote: I'm Envisager (or Vissy as some like to call me!) one of the MVPs from the Official PlayStation Forums, some of you might already know me from events I host for the community!
Follow me on twitter (@Envisager_) to hear more about those!
A few weeks ago, I was invited to London Studios to see first hand how the new SingStar titles, SingStar Dance and SingStar Guitar, were shaping up, and chat with some of the awesome team who bring us the ultimate party game!
During my time at London Studios on the wet and soggy Thursday afternoon, I was given the opportunity to chat and pose questions to Mike Rouse, Senior Producer of SingStar and was shown how the new versions of the game functioned by Charlie Hasdell, Principal Designer of SingStar.
This was before being given the chance to prove my worth against Charlie and some of the developers of the game!
Of course, this was all captured on video for your enjoyment, and my embarrassment
What can I say about the new versions of the game? Well I have been a fan of SingStar...
