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...
160w ago - Today Sony European Product Manager Erica Doddato has cordially invited fans to come and party with SingStar in PlayStation Home!
To quote: Have you checked out the new SingStar Rooms in PlayStation Home yet?
Complete with new tracks to get down to on the dance floor and loads more videos on the big screen, the SingStar Rooms have never felt so good.
While you're there, make sure you pay a visit to the SingStar Store, the new designer outlet for SingStar fans, open for business for the first time in PlayStation Home.
To celebrate the release of the two new titles SingStar Dance and SingStar Guitar on PlayStation 3, the SingStar Store is stocking some pretty special costumes.
There's Guitar Guy and Guitar Girl for those who love to rock 'n' roll, and Disco Guy and Disco Girl for people who like to get down with the beat. All these costumers will come with custom walk and dance animations.
These aren't the only new outfits we created for you... head over to the new SingStar Store to discover many more! While you're there, you can also browse through all the SingStar song packs and buy them.
And to top it off, a great new mini-game will await you in the Rooms from 2 December onwards.
160w ago - London Studios SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer has posted up this weeks SingStore PS3 releases today, as follows:
Exciting times this week as the first downloadable dance add-ons will be available in the SingStore and that's not all.
In addition, we're giving you dance and guitar gameplay which you'll be able to grab for free from the Extras section. Don't say we're not good to you!
Note that to get these extras, you will have to have the recent 5.10 update installed.
So apart from twelve dance - I'm expecting amazing videos in MSO, btw - and two guitar add-ons there are also great new tracks from Cheryl Cole, Ellie Goulding, Alexandra Burke, David Bowie, Morrissey and Mudhoney on offer. As always, full tracklisting is below.
You'll notice that the list below is now colour coded (songs only). Anything in green means the track is exclusive to the SingStore and has never been featured on a disc before. Some of you requested that I add this information so hope this helps?
That's me for this week. Now DANCE! Feel free to let me know what you think of the dances and what's your favourite(s).
162w ago - SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer at London Studios has outlined this weeks SingStore PS3 releases today, as follows:
I'm not quite sure where to start this week as there's so many stellar tracks. Let's see, there's some more 30 Seconds To Mars and Britney which I know a lot of you will appreciate.
Then we have some true classics in the shape of 'California Dreamin", 'Jimmy Mack' and 'What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted by The Mamas & The Papas, Martha Reeves & The Vendettas and Jimmy Ruffin, respectively.
Also on the list some perfect pop songs by Robyn, Sugababes and Vanessa Amorosi plus the Dire Straits make their first SingStore appearance with 'Walk Of Life'.
Last but not least, foreign language tracks are in German and Portuguese this time round and there are three more guitar upgrades available. On that note, watch out for guitar and dance gameplay being launched in the Extras section very soon!
