182w ago - Content Producer for SCEE James Gallagher has let us know that two new SingStar titles are coming out at the end of the year - SingStar Dance and SingStar Guitar for use with Sony's upcoming PlayStation Move motion controller.
To quote: The SingStar team must be used to sore throats at the end of E3 and this year they can expect weary limbs and achy wrists as well after three days demonstrating SingStar Dance and SingStar Guitar.
They are the two new disc based SingStar titles coming out towards the end of the year. SingStar Dance allows two people to dance along using the PlayStation Move motion controller in addition to two singers. With SingStar Guitar, you can use any guitar controller you have for other games and play along while your friends sing.
Dave Ranyard, SingStar's game director, stood still for a minute to talk about the latest additions to the hit series.
"The key thing for us is to give people new features while retaining that classic SingStar look and feel," he said. "For me, SingStar is all about family parties and these new features encourage more people to get involved."

189w 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...
192w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Rob Rutter has announced news today of a SingStar Online Battle Mode and PS3 Beta coming soon.
To quote: I'm really pleased to be able to let you know about a great new gameplay feature coming soon to SingStar in the June update.
For the first time, you'll be able to take part in Online Battles against your friends in SingStar. When competing in an Online Battle, you'll send an invite to one of your PSN friends, match songs (you both need to own a song to play it) - pick-up the mic and in true MC style 'let battle commence'.
When playing, you can view your opponent's score live, and see them playing via PlayStation Eye.
As this is a new feature for SingStar, the team needs to test out the gameplay with real players, and this is where you come in! We're running a Closed Beta for our most dedicated SingStar players to come and help us test out new features and upgrades to the game. If you're already a SingStar player aged over 18 with a European PSN account, have the game, mics and an online-enabled PS3, we need your help!
