This Week On The SingStore (6 May 2010)

70 26

Hi All!

Hope you had a fun time with the songs from the last update or is that a silly question to ask?

A little bit of news first: after this week the regular SingStore update day will be moving from a Thursday to a Wednesday which will give you even more time to prepare yourselves for your SingStar parties in the weekend. This means the next update will hit your PS3s on Wednesday, 19th May!

The update this week is a bit of a mixed bag and if you ask me, I’m all for a bit of variety. How about you get down on the dancefloor with Tinchy Stryder and Amelle or relive the Sixties with Gene Pitney’s ’24 Hours From Tulsa’ or Sir Cliff’s ‘Living Doll’?

Tinchy Stryder feat. Amelle - Never Leave You

If you like it a bit rockier, make sure you give our brand new Lostprophets SongPack a try, too.

There’s also plenty of foreign language content ranging from German, Swedish and Portuguese to Spanish and, making its first appearance on the store, Hindi.

Enjoy the songs and SongPacks and see you in two weeks’ time.

Nina xx

  • Not much here for me, but I’ll drop in a “keep up the good work” comment to counter any backlash you might get.

    When are we likely to see the Crowded House songs as singles by the way, and what happened to the Saturdays SongPack?

  • snow patrol pack is welcome, havent had a chance/forget to pick up what’s there already so it’ll be a good opportunity.

    Can we get any information on when the new feature’s will hit Nina? I’m especially excited about the PSP queue 1.
    Some info about a timeline on how online battle is coming along wouldn’t be too shabby either (missed out on entering into the beta)

    • Good, good – enjoy Snow Patrol!

      The new features will be available sometime in June, so not too much longer to wait.

  • Thanks Nina…

    With Eurovision coming up soon, are there plans for any Eurovision tracks next update?

  • I love Depeche Mode but this song `See You` is horrible!
    What did you guys smoke when this song was sellected. Why not a song from Violator?

  • Hello Nina
    Thank you for this info. The French have noticed an option Singstar, has disappeared: music personified in the menus with our lists of music on the XMB. Why this option has been removed?
    Thanks

    • Hi,

      This is a general feature for all games now and not just for SingStar so you can still put your music on the XMB.

      Cheers,

      Nina

  • Hi Nina. A few weeks ago, you told me that the songs of Gilbert Montagnier, were being examined in the offices of your team licenses. Since we have not heard anything. The case is a good way it is or what the project is stopped? thank you in advance

    • Sorry, here is no news on this and there might not be for a while as the process takes a long time, unfortunately.

  • Hello Nina. Since the beginning of each month, I sent the results of the wish lists of French, for the month of April 2010, Mr. Aurelien Poma. I remind you that the French do not just choose the song titles, they also vote for them. This enables you to see the songs expected by the French population. Here is the list of wishes, the French, with analysis and TOP 100: http://ox.fr/bmcq Thank you Nina, for them to pay attention. Good day

  • no songs for me this time…

    I want some songs from flemisch or dutch singers/groups…
    maybe next time :)

  • excuse me : this is the good website : http://o-x.fr/bmcq

  • Hi Nina, it seems that people with more than 200 songs purchased on the SingStore, did not receive beta key.
    In our French community there are many. Is it possible to have a key for them? I leave you my e-mail: [DELETED]
    Thanks for them

    • The Beta selection has nothing to do with the number of songs people have. Sadly I don’t have any codes I can give out as you will have to apply for the Beta through the normal channels.

      Good luck for next time to all who didn’t get the chance to perticipate this time round.

  • @razazier: Because for the Beta your whole library will be copied. If you have a lot of songs you need a lot of extra space. I think, that’s the reason. I got my key on another way and had to buy a new hdd. ^^

  • Well I prefer updates without five songs by the same band, as it provides more diversity and has a greater chance of containing something for everyone. Having said that, as least there are two sure downloads for me (Dido / Depeche Mode), so it’s better than the last two upsates. :-)

    • Hello – these tracks had previously been released in a SongPack and now as singles, that’s why there is five from the same band.

  • Come on Nina,

    why don’t you just give us “Dance with Somebody” and “Wire to Wire” from the Starter Pack??
    Please consider them for your next Update, you can’t expect us to buy a disc for only 5 songs :/

    pretty please

  • Wow. This week is a dud. Too many repeat offerings from low-wattage groups with diminishing returns from each. (Seriously – we get it – you guys *love* Stereophonics and Snow Patrol – now move on to somebody else.)

    Dido would be the only song I am purchasing, and that is far from a karaoke party starter.

    Lips has you guys schooled up and down the block this month with their offerings. (Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler” being the tip of the iceberg!) How is it that Microsoft, of all people, can more easily acquire rights than a music-owning company like Sony? It boggles the mind.

  • eurodance (90’s classics)
    or SCOOTTEEAAAAA (scooter :))
    pleeeeeaaasse

  • Nina,

    Will you continue to announce updates on Monday afternoons even though updates will be on Wednesdays?

    Oh, and my recommendation this week is for The Potbelleez – “Are You With Me”. They already have one song on the SingStore, so fingers crossed it’s doable from a licensing perspective at least. ;)

  • Hi Nina
    I have a problem with the store! Two days ago i bought ladys gaga “bad romance” , the store took the money but i can’t download it! The song appears in the playstations service list but i cant find it in the singstore list with the other songs that i bought…
    What can i do to download it.
    Thanks.

    • Hi – do you still have the problem of not being able to download this? Does it not appear in your purchase history?

  • @14. I totally agree with you!

  • Thank you for Bad Romance!!!! Add Lady Gaga Paparazzi!

  • Great to see a Manics song added.

  • is there any chance for Daft Punk to be released in SingStore? I love them and they were available only in France…

  • LOSTPROPHETS SONGPACK! YES! :D

  • Hello again!

    Thanks for the Dido and Manic Street Preachers, I’m sure gonna buy those two! Also I have to say that I totally agree with the comment #14: Forget the Snow Patrol & Stereophonics, we’ve had an overdose of them lately. Something fresh next time, eh?

    And dear French people , I think Nina already knows what is your problem, so please be kind enough to stop spamming this blog, will you…

    My recommendation of the week goes like this *shuffling the neverending personal wishlist*: Alice In Chains & “Check My Brain”. Ok, this song is quite new and there’s already a version in the Rock Band Store. It has a catchy chorus, but I personally don’t like the singmode in Rock Band or Guitar Hero, so it would be a great thing to have it in SingStar, because the game is made purely for singing! Simple, isn’ it ;)

  • Well, it’s hard to please everyone every week but yet again there’s a couple of tracks i like so no complaints here. Tender and Motorcycle Emptiness, Thanks.

  • how would i go about getting the Hindi tracks? im in the UK!

    • All you have to do is set your language to ALL in the store and you will be able to find them. Hope this helps!

  • The Honeyz, Dido and Will Young songs are great adds, thanks Nina :). Not so sure about the others yet, but atleast 3 songs to buy.

    Nina, do you have any update if there is any move on one of these?
    Caro Emerald – A Night like this
    Trijntje Oosterhuis – Vlieg met me mee

  • any chance of Miley Cyrus and JLS (one shot)

    plus Saliva – Always… would be a great track to sing along to!

  • FIVE Lostprophets songs and ace Blur/Manics additions?!

    Well you’re going to be getting quite a few quid from my household this week – more updates like this and less of the usual rubbish please :D

    Obviously not the MOST rocking tracks, but exactly the sort of stuff I’d rather be buying. I know Singstar will never be Rock Band, but diversity of choice is a very good thing.

    Hilarious reaction from people on here – you get the pop/indie dross every fortnight, it won’t hurt to have one week where other tastes are catered for. There’s still plenty of the chart music anyway…

  • Nina any chance for some Kylie Minogue songpacks? Come on, please. We need Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, In Your Eyes, Love At First Sight, Come Into My World, Slow, I Believe In You, Wow, In My Arms, etc… And the older tracks of course. She only has four songs on the Singstore.

  • Weird choice of Depeche Mode song, but I’ll take what I can get :)

  • Yeah, the Depeche Mode song is not really ace. I mean, Peace and the song Wrong are way better. Actually, I’ve been hoping for both for a while now.

    Other than that, an update that doesn’t really suit to my tastes. Maybe it’s for the better, I’m loaded on songs as it is. :p

  • Pure_Mind_Games

    we need more tunes from when music was music and not noise, AKA The 80’s, also any plans for a bit of Journey?

  • Pure_Mind_Games

    @14 – just a shame compared to Singstar, Lips sucks and cost more per track, for me the only thing Lips has over Singstar is it came with Wireless mics

  • Good work on bringing more Depeche Mode and Lost Prophets Rooftops. Would love to see Depeche Mode “The Meaning of Love” next.

  • If there is one song I would wish that was in the singstore is Toto Africa. It has the most epic chorus in rock music history. Please snap some necks to bring this song in the store.

  • After watching the glee episode tribute to Madonna i think there should be a Singstar Madonna. It would be awesome to sing all of her songs! Also it would be cool to have some glee songs on singstar!

  • WOW!! Hindi songs! So, Singstar is a game for England, Spain, France, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Portugal, Greece and now India too!! Find the country missed…
    I can’t believed… I remember you that we pay songs €1.49 like everybody..but now I’m sure that Sony doesn’t like italian’s Euro…I swear that our Euro are the same of all other countries!!
    Well, I’m sure.Now that the update will be in Wednesday there will be more italian songs!(Less is impossible!In 2010,0 songs!)
    It’s true that there aren’t italian songs, but I’m joking!! Have a nice day!! Hiiiiiiii Singstar singers!!

  • Will the version of ‘Living Doll’ with the Young Ones be featured also?

    And will we ever get the song Informer from Snow?? That would be soooo awesome to try :D

  • Great to see another awesome update. :-)

    I don’t know about Lips being superior to Singstar this month or not, but the fact remains that you’ve delivered non-stop content since release. You guys are doing an awesome job of keeping at it and I’m looking forward to seeing us reach that 2000 mark. :D

  • Oh come on Nina…. We need “The Courteeners” asap !! My cash is just waiting to be spent on this !!

  • Yeah. Please do keep up the good work. For crying out loud.

    1) Put on the SinStore the discs (even the PS2 ones) as digital purchase items and don’t keep insulting us with “oh we are thinking about bringing the copy form discs functionality to the PS3”. You have been thinking about it for what? Oh 2 years now? Please.

    3) Put the songs already on discs up for sale. You already own the rights for them. Oh wait you want to force us to buy the discs. Nope not gonna happen.

    2) As 14 said How is it that Microsoft, of all people, can more easily acquire rights than a music-owning company like Sony? It boggles the mind. I would also like to know.

    3) Do you honestly believe that we will buy a whole pack just for one song? We are not stupid. You do it all the time. U2’s song in the Island Records pack on the last update and the absence of Crowded House’s – Don’t dream it’s over as a single track (when the other 4 from the pack were released), was a nice way to insult us. Bravooo

    • Hi,

      As I have tried to explain many times previously, a song being on a disc doesn’t neccessarily mean we can release it onto the store. It’s a completely different process and the rights don’t just ‘transfer’ (that would be nice :)).

      Also, I’m afraid we are Sony Computer Entertainment and do not own the rights to any music by artists signed to Sony Music. We are two different companies and have to deal with them the same way we deal with everybody else.

      Hope this helps a little?

      Thanks,

      Nina

  • damn double post. :(

  • @41,42,43,
    but you’r both right :)

  • Hey Nina, I thank you for the Dido and The Honeyz tracks, yea its Back Catalogue but yay I’m happy with these :D
    I can’t wait to butcher Here with Me!

    @5 reply: Razazier not to be condescending, but that “Feature” of having XMB Music playlists play disappeared a LONG Time ago, like months and months ago. I’m confused how its only come to the french communities attention now =P

    Oh yea and before I run off: SingStar: GLEE! Gogogogogo Nina go do it, get the rights gogogogo. haha <3

  • Weird Depeche Mode choice… gimme Wrong, In Your Room or any other song :D.

  • BluesBrotherDean

    Well … could you please do songs from “Blues Traveler” or “The Blues Brothers” …

  • @28 – I couldn’t agree with you more.

    I think this is a pretty damn good update. :)

    Nice one singstar guys!

  • Hi Nina! Hopefully Lady Gaga will be in the U.S. store and the songs I mentioned before. Will the general game update that comes out in June be available in the U.S.? It should be. Thanks Nina

    • No gaga, I’m afraid for now but yes, you will get all the features in the next update, of course!

  • Lady GaGa coming soon Im hoping please thanks for responding last time bye.
