  • The best update in awhile, just at a glance I’m going to get like 5-6 songs at least!

  • Oh my god, Lady Gaga! Aqua! Gwen Stefani! Killers! OneRepublic!

    BEST UPDATE EVER!! :D

  • SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

    Best update for me! THANKS! :D I ll organize a singstar party for that :)

  • And even remembered a kiss this time!!

  • Nina:
    – thanks for an amazing update. But I think I may cry because there are not going to be available in the us. Is singstar still trying for a similar deal that the uk just got? Or is this unlikely? It would be a great Christmas present ;)

    – also it’s great to see another Swedish track, thanks for that!

    • Hi there,

      Please don’t cry. I would love to give you that for Cristmas, too but as you suspected, that is extremely unlikely at the moment. If anything should happen with this, you guys will be the first to know, I promise!

      Nina x

  • FINALLY, ‘Go With The Flow’ is on the store!

    You’ve made my girlfriend very happy with that specific Sugababes song as well :)

  • Another really good update. I’m almost thinking I have too many songs….. almost. :P

    Btw, thanks for answering my question about the Korn song in Australia last fortnight.

  • It is soo impressive how the updates have improved in the period of this year. Thank you so much for all the effort you are putting in the game.

    Still I got one question on my mind – what has happened with the missing Coldplay medley? It hasn’t been updated so far.

    • Pleasure!

      Re: the Coldplay medley. Did you delete the pack from your HDD and download it again? If you could try that and let me know whether you’re still having problems…

  • hope the complaining regarding Lady Gaga will now stop

  • Guys does Queen songs can be buyed separately? I’ve got original Singstar Queen so I’ve got three songs from the pack but I’d love to buy ‘It’s A Hard Life’ and ‘Save Me’.

    Any news on Other Queen songs? ‘I’m going slightly mad’, ‘You don’t fool me’, ‘Heaven for everyone’ etc?

  • Last time I deleted the pack and downloaded it again was on Saturday. The medley still didn’t show up. That’s the reason why I’m asking ;)

  • Hey, Wet Wet Wet, i love this song!!, thanks a lot!!

    Barbie girl, that’s a funny song, perfect for parties.

    About the packs, I think i will be better if the songs could be buyed separately, just in case you don’t like one of the song’s pack or if you only like one..

    Thanks for update more spanish songs too, we
    appreciate that from Spain ;)

  • Awesome, great seeing more Texas, more Travis, Hives, Newton and Coral always welcome too. Here’s hoping to see more Jhonny Cash and a debut of Beautiful South on the next update ;)

  • Thanks for the update again, but I have a tiny little moan :(

    There are too many songs in this weeks update which are already available on PS2 discs :( If you are going to be putting previously released songs from PS2 discs can you not release the whole disc at once?

    Then I could sell my discs and download them again!!

    And another thing….whats with having songs that were on PS3 discs..what’s all that about.

    Saying all that tho thanks for Bill McCai..a brilliant song which is probably (no definetly) going to be ruined by me at some point in the future lol

  • Oh. My. GOd. Apologize111111oneoneone

  • Silly Metal wishes incoming:
    Blind Guardian (The ultimate Metal sing-along band, almost any song would be feasible)
    Edguy – “Lavatory Love Machine” (because it’s silly and great).
    …there are of course more on my wish list, but these could actually stand a chance against their competition. Both are currently under Nuclear Blast.

    Interesting update btw :)

  • Lucky european players… We are not going to get any UMG artists so soon… Guess I will have to buy the karaoke game from the competition despite loving Singstar :@

  • It looks like a wonderful update for Europe.
    I know you are doing what you can so I won’t complain or anything to you.
    Just remember to let us know as soon as the US gets the UMG deal too!! :)

  • Nothing for me this time, but if you had “Summer sun” by Texas, that would have been awesome.

  • Nina, there’s still issues with the singstargame.com song catalogue not updating. It’s still displaying the July 23rd as the most recent update.

  • Thanks Nina.
    Any chance of having some Pulp any time? And maybe some more Franz Ferdinand songs?

  • I’d love to get some more “PUR” or “Patent Ochsner” Songs!

    BTW: what about some Beatles Songs? That would be great … I just say 9.9.9 … I guess you know what i mean!

  • And this update will not be available in the US…
    Nina, I hope you know I’m thinking about going on a rampage with a keyboard because of that.

  • Pretty weak update if you ask me. Agree with #20, it would be great to see some Pulp and Franz Ferdinand songs on SingStore.

  • One Republic lead singer screencap looks like Spencer Pratt haha

  • You have to stop releasing all these tracks, my credit card is getting a hammering :)

    Cheers
    GreenMekon

  • Hi Nina,

    This is a great update, but we still need more alternative artists in the singstore.
    We have artists like Goldfrapp, Hot Chip, Hooverphonic, but what about Massive Attack, Moby, Air, Porstishead, Tricky, Björk, etc…
    Some Trip-Hop and more Electronic to the Singstore please!

  • Hey! Great update!

    Thanks! ;)

  • Lady gaga at last whey!!! Thnx for that ur now my best friend lol!

  • Great update, It’s Not Unusual will mortify my kids :)

    Any chance of Dream Catch Me from Newton Faulkner

  • Please get some Josh Pyke?

    Please?

    Pretty Please with sugar on top?

  • Oh Bum i just read about korn being banned in aussie which means that it wont make it to new zealand either. That sucks big time dam you australia and your dodgy underarm bowling, i hope we take one of you state of origin matches from you.

  • Aqua – Barbie Girl
    Lady Gaga feat Colby O’Donis – Just Dance
    Sugababes – Too Lost In You
    The Pussycat Dolls – Don’t Cha

    I love you Nina!!! Looks like when I asked about most of those artists, I asked at the right time :P Great update *Happy girl*

  • Awesome update!! Gaga at last!!! Would have loved Paparazzi, but Just Dance is just as good!! I will also be getting some PCD and Apologise. I want Hilary Duff. Please!!!

  • When might we see videos in HD…for our HD console?

  • Great list of updates! Any news on afding THE capability to download songs that are on BRD to THE hdd drive?

    I would also like to see some: André Hazes, and more German 80’s classics

  • The updates are getting really good now, Your doing a really good job with Singstar. Had it since launch and it is my most played game on PS3. Loving “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow” Loved the film O’ Brother Where Art Thou, which is where I know this song from.

    I wish you got some more old country songs from artists such as Willie Nelson, Hank Williams etc and some Karaoke classics such as Dolly Partons Nine To Five and Billy Ray Cyrus’s Achy Breaky Heart.

  • Not a bad update but why keep releasing songs that are already available on the discs? If I wanted them I would buy the disc, ie the Queen song packs, isn’t it reducing sales for the disc? I have downloaded a song pack and feel I don’t really need to buy the disc now as I got the ones I wanted. As always some more Michael Jackson would be great-how bout a whole disc?! And I also would love to relive my youth with some boy bands, how bout Backstreet Boys and Boyzone ;)

  • Wow Nina, had Singstar ever since release and I have to say this is the only update that really impressed me! Thumbs up for the Singstore team on this one.

    On another note, is there a possibility of having an MP3 preview on the Singstore for us bandwidth starved countries? Sometimes I have to wait up to a minute before a preview starts playing, quite frustrating if you are looking through 20+ songs per update (our ADSL speeds can be pretty bad). This would save some traffic as well, for both Sony and the users. I’d understand if your music licenses only allowed you to release it in video form though… maybe you can just make it like 2×2 pixel? :)

  • I thought that for the first time I won’t buy anything on the SingStore after the update. But fortunatly, I’ve seen Wings’ song at the bottom :) It’ll be one of the best songs in my collection so far. You’ll keep updating Wings/McCartney, won’t you :)
    Take care, Nina.

  • I NEED MADONNA-SONG – and not just the old ones! :)

  • Nice update! Any news on Pxies and/or Interpol coming to the store? :)

  • Hi Nina,
    I also downloaded the Coldplay 2 songpack. I didn’t get the medley so I deleted the pack and downloaded it again but I didn’t get a medley. Please reply as I want to know how to get it.

  • NICE UPDATE !!!!!

  • This update still needs some William Shatner :D

  • Finally! Just Dance by Lady GaGa! Thanks a lot SingStar HQ! :)

  • Wow!!! The updates are getting better and better, cool!

  • Can you tell me if there is any plan to release Coldplay – Viva La Vida in the singstore?

    That because it’s already released in volume 1 or 3 (can’t remember which one) but it isn’t in the store, and it is my favorite song. But to buy a whole disc just for 1 song…

    Would love to hear it, thanks!

    -Q

  • Oh I’m sorry I forgot to add: Hey Nina ;)

    -Q

  • Excellent update. I’ve been waiting for I Want to Break Free for ages and I’ll gladly take the other songs in the pack too. And Man of Constant Sorrow is brilliant!

    I have some sympathy for people who have already bought whole discs with these songs on, but it doesn’t hurt anyone for the older stuff to be made available to the rest of us (I never had a PS2 so nearly everything is new to me). And @astrogirl above, I don’t think the Michael Jackson stuff is too far away, but you may already have known that!
