228w ago - Today Product Marketing Manager Erin English has detailed SingStar's SingStore holiday update for PlayStation 3, as follows:

I'd like to share with you some good news about today's shiny new SingStar Holiday update to version 4.30.

Firstly, and most importantly, this update fixes the missing songs (although you will have to re-download those that are missing), problems with videos and other issues a number of you found with the previous version update.

We want to thank all of you for being so patient while these problems were being fixed and tested thoroughly. Hopefully, once you've updated, you'll find everything back to normal : )

Well, not quite normal actually. There are a number of cool new features also added in this holiday update for you to try out too!

Here's a quick rundown:

SingStore:

• What's Hot? - Now you can see Top 10s on the SingStore - our hottest content from current Top 10 downloads to top festive tunes.
• Quick Buy - Watching a media clip of someone singing a song you really like and want to add it to your collection? Now you can go and view it directly in the SingStore with the press of a button!
• SingStore On Demand - You can preview and purchase SingStore songs available...

Aspiring rock stars can breathe a sigh of relief - SingStar is finally coming to PlayStation Home this Thursday, September 24. And to top it off, we're kicking off the launch with an extra special event.

Those of you who visit the new SingStar space this Thursday will find that the critically-acclaimed UK rapper Dizzee Rascal has taken over the VIP lounge.

To celebrate the release of his new album Tongue n' Cheek (and his new SongPack available now at the SingStore), we're decorating this super elite space with all things Dizzee Rascal, airing some exclusive Dizzee videos, and dropping a bunch of Dizzee-themed virtual items on you (including a few limited edition rewards for all attendees). See the below video if you want to learn more about the content and features in the new SingStar space.





Far Cry 2 fans will be excited to learn that the FC2 game space is being updated with a new mini-game entitled "Reuben's Report".

240w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced that the new SingStar rooms will be launching on September 24th, and that Buzz! game launching support is also on the way.

To quote: As you may or may not know, we announced the upcoming SingStar rooms for PlayStation Home at gamescom in Cologne, Germany a few weeks ago.

For those of you SingStar fiends who have since been blowing up my PM box on the official PlayStation Home forums asking "where are those rooms at, Locust?"

I'm positively thrilled to confirm that this new game space will be launching two weeks from today on Thursday, September 24th. You can peep some exclusive sneak peek pics from this new space below.

The first thing you'll notice when you visit this space on opening day is that dance floor reacts to the shapes you throw and that the music will change according to what style on dance the majority of avatars are partaking in. Note: This is where you thank me for not dropping the polka dance on you last update.

There's also an interactive jukebox in the space where you and your friends can vote for your favorite tracks and the SingStar Music Quiz (which will be accessible in a future update) is there to test the knowledge of the hardest of hardcore music...

247w ago - SCEE Content Manager Nina Scherer has announced news of the latest SingStar update today, as follows:

It's time for the SingStore update and without further ado, let me introduce you to this week's brand new tracks.

SingStar must-haves this week include 'Smooth Operator' by Sade, Gloria Estefan's 'Dr. Beat' and Roy Orbison with 'I Drove All Night'. For all fans of the hottest tunes of the moment there's Kasabian's recent single 'Fire' plus some great tracks by Coldplay, The Hold Steady and P!nk.

We've recently had some reports from the community about 'Charmless Man' by Blur being slightly out-of-synch. I'm glad to say that this has been fixed so if you have previously downloaded this track, please delete it from your hard drive and re-download it from the store anytime after Thursday and everything should be 'nanana' again.

Also, for those of you eagerly awaiting the release of SingStar Queen, we're happy to announce that the release date for the standalone disc has been pushed up and SingStar Queen will now be available for purchase on August 4.
