160w ago - Sony Senior Producer Chris Bruce of London Studio has unveiled some new SingStar PS3 features that are coming this June to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system, as follows:
Thanks to everyone who has taken part in our Beta so far, and those who have signed up for the next Beta events, there has been a great response. We have received loads of valuable feedback from you all and been working hard to get fixes and improvements into the game. Onto the features though...
First up is SingStar Remote, which enables you to connect to SingStar with a PSP during a game session and create a playlist of up to 20 songs.
The playlist can be edited whilst someone else is singing, allowing you to queue up loads of songs to play from a carousel on the PSP and move swiftly form one song to the next, ensuring no break in your SingStar party. Ever.
For truly professional SingStar players we have upgraded our gameplay to give the player feedback when you are singing with extra style using your natural vibrato. We suggest honing your vibrato skill on Gold by Spandau Ballet, Street Spirit by Radiohead or one of the tracks from the Il Divo SongPack. Good luck!
SingStar Clubs are expanding, a single club can now have up to 1000 members, and you will be able to join up to five...
163w ago - Update: Sony has now told NowGamer.com that despite widespread reports they have seen no evidence of damage caused by the PS3 Firmware 3.21 update.
Sony has already upset some users by removing the "Install OtherOS" with its PS3 Firmware 3.21 update, and based on reports from the official PlayStation forums a sizable number of PS3 users have run into issues since updating to PlayStation 3 Firmware version 3.21 as well.
Problems after installing the update range from folks not being able to log into PSN or load a disc after the update to users not being able to turn on their PS3 at all - some have even reported freezing during the update process.
Of course, there's also lots of users that have updated without any issues whatsoever, and the problems don't seem to have yet drawn an official response from Sony.
Let us know how things worked out for you in the comments below.
