This Week On The SingStore (14 January 2010)

Hi and a very Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a great time over the Christmas period and that you managed to keep yourselves busy with a few tracks from the last SingStore update in December – I know I did!

Without any further ado, let’s move on to the first SingStore update in 2010 – and what better way to start off the new decade with some classic from the likes of David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Crowded House and Texas?

You’ll also find quite a few foreign language tracks in the update including two local SongPacks this week in the shape of ‘Die Fantastischen Vier’, Germany’s original Hip-Hop quartet and Alain Souchon, for those of you who are partial to his great French tunes.

In 2009, we managed to release over 700 tracks and nearly 50 SongPacks to the SingStore plus many great features such as the Wallpaper Creator and free downloads like Voice Control and the Video Editor. There’s lots more great stuff coming your way in 2010 so keep your eyes and ears open… more from me in two weeks’ time. Enjoy!

Not sure yet. Will let you know when I know.

Great ’15 Miljoen mensen’ !!!! :)
Thanks! :D

Are there some new features for SingStar planned for 2010? :)
Maby you could tease us a bit?

Kind Regards,
Samich

4.1

There are and that would be a firm NO on the teasing front :)

Thank you for the French community.
In France, the game SingStar users can vote for songs they would like to sing in the game Singstar. All votes are controlled to avoid cheating. Here are the results of votes for December 2009: http://singstarsite.perso.sfr.fr/Files/resultats_du_sondage_decembre.mht

I contacted Mr. Gilbert Montagne and his agent. I explained what the game Singstar. They are very excited and want to participate in the adventure Singstar. They have 100% of copyright. I have his email, phone, address. How do I put them in contact with the team Singstar? thank you for keeping me informed here is my email if necessary: @ yes.loulou live.fr

5.1

Hi Razazier,

First of all, thanks for continuing to collate wishlists every month on your site – they are indeed very useful to us.

I have already forwarded Gilbert Montagne’s contact details to our team in France and the licencing department here so we will have to see what comes of it.

Thanks,

Nina

Here are the expectations of French players Singstar:
http://singstarsite.perso.sfr.fr/Files/resultats_du_sondage_decembre.mht

Make the most of this list and you will see that your sales will explode in France.
At the end I’ll give you a new list

Oh no, pleas not Alexander Rybak. I’m so sick of that song, and I’m sure everybody in Norway is :P

8.1

Believe it or not, quite a few people actually asked for it :)

I’ll second that GhostViper!!

Thanks for the announcement, Nina. Five for me this week. :)

Any update on the Delta Goodrem problem I mentioned to you last year? (http://bit.ly/56ag6w) Oh and I hope you got time to see my artist recommendations that week — you seemed very busy!!

10.1

Just checking – if you could remind me again next time, I would appreciate it :)

11

Decent update for the 1st of the year but i would like some oasis, ocean colour scene, the verve and especially some poalo nutini

plz

Mariah Carey and Madonna please! Happy New Year Nina ;)

12.1

Happy New year to you, too…

poor update for me

It’s good to have more songs from Gwen Stefani, but it’d be better if we could have songs from No Doubt in the Singstore.

Nice to see more songs from Maroon 5, waiting for more.

More latin artists like Shakira, Carlos Baute or Marc Anthony be cool too!

I got 100€ of PSN-store credit over holidays to spend on stuff… i was going to spend some of it on singstore… til i realiesed i cant even re-download free stuff like voice command, just because they were downloaded on my other PS3 which YLODed. May i respectfully ask how on earth do you singstore guys expect to me to spend a dime on your outlet in such environment?? and why there even is separate singstore considering that PSN-store does it way better?

Thanks for Depeche Mode — Personal Jesus!

Hi Nina, hope you had a wonderful Xmas.

Now down to business ;)

Are you going to release any of the Abba & Take That tracks from the disc onto the store like you did with the Queen tracks?

Only asking because being a bloke and incredibly lazy I’d rather have the songs (for Miss Zaz..honest) on my harddrive than having to swap discs…especially after a few sherberts.

Or will you make all our 2010 wishes come true and announce a patch where we can upload our PS2/PS3 discs to the harddrive?

Go on Nina, know you want to ;)

The songs that I’ve bought is locked to my old ps. I want to download them again to my new console, but I can’t! ;( How can I get my songs back?

18.1

Hiya – you need to contact customer services who will be able to help you with that. Cheers, Nina.

Hey Nina hope you had a good xmas and new year just a quick question is there any chance of getting Red by Daniel Merriweather on the singstore in the future?

19.1

Yes, thanks! Already on the wishlist!

Nice to see all the Xmas champagne and egg nog didn’t stop you from picking some good songs :-)

Alexander Rybak — Fairytale; Maroon 5 — This Love; Texas — Black Eyed Boy son imprescindibles!!!

22

Requests:

*Recent Hits*
“She-Wolf” by Shakira
“I Don’t Believe You” by Pink
“With Every Heartbeat” by Robyn/Kleerup

*Classics*
“Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar
“Toy Soldiers” by Martika
“Buffalo Stance” by Neneh Cherry

22.1

Checking wishlists – unfortunately some are not possible from the start right now…

23

Thats a nice update. There are quite a few on that list I’m gonna buy

At last a more meaty portuguese song list. I’m liking it!

SalarymanDaishi 12 January, 2010 @ 04:47

As for the Finnish songs, it’s no biggie but that should actually be Egotrippi — Nämä Ajat Eivät Ole Meitä Varten

I’ve got the same problem as Baggord. When the PS3 Slim arrived I exchanged my old console + some money for it (and I do not regret it). I’m still able to see my songs in the download list, but when trying to download them again, I can’t!

26.1

See above (18) – the songs are locked to your old PS3 so they will have to change that over for you. After that, you should eb able to re-download all songs to your Slim again.

Requests…
Dolly Parton – Jolene
Songs from Eels, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds (Fifteen feet of pure white snow), Beck…

27.1

No Dolly the moment :(

Have you already downloaded ‘Novocaine For The Soul’?

28

Not the best update. Usually there are a couple of songs I would like but nothing this time.
As well most of them seem to be older tracks how about something from 2008/09? And any chance of any Linkin Park or more Eminem at some point?

I live in Belgium and our official languages include Dutch, French & German.

So.. I wonder: will we ever get the chance to download Deutsche Schlager or des chansons Français?

I want that Viva Colonia song! And the Spider Murphy Gang!

29.1

Hi Molin,

You can download all these tracks from the store. Just make sure you have your language set to ‘all’ (L2) when you looking at the store and all available foreign language tracks should display.

Thanks,

Nina

30

Perfect update, i will get 11 songs, incl. the dutch songs.

Hi Nina,
Some more dutch songs next update combined with some Phil Collins songs? ;-) This would be great!!!!

Another question, we some a nice function to sort all the songs on genre (pop, rock etc.) and we can sort on artist or song name.

Can we get an option to sort the songs on language?? So, only Englisch or french or german or dutch songs are vissable? (and the rest of the languages of course) ohh and mayby an sort option for christmas songs, that would be very nice.

Thanks

Greetings MonsterRacer

30.1

Hi MonsterRacer,

Glad you like so many this time round!

You can sort by language by pressing L2 then set to the language you would like displayed.

Cheers,

Nina

very very very poor.

regretting giving ye so much money over the past few years for….nothing….

Hi Nina , in Just Dance of Wii , theyve Hot and Cold by Katy Perry is it possible Katy PErry in Singstore ?
And the best song of 2009 : Bad Romance , is it possible ?
Thanks 4 answering I know you’ll do ! Kisses !

32.1

We’ll see…

I’m hosting a singstar party this weekend for me and my friends, was hoping for some decent tracks from the last year or 2.

Again, i’m dissapointed with the songs getting released. Maroon 5 is the only track i’ll be purchasing.

When is singstar going to be putting more of the new/recent tracks that the UK actually know of (chart stuff)????????

I’m sure many out there share my view.

33.1

Hi Mathlin,

We are trying our best to get ‘new’ songs all the time but nfortunately, it is a lengthy process to licence and publish songs for the store. I hope you will find more songs you like in 2010.

Thanks,

Nina

34

Hi Nina, see your answer down my reaction.
I think you mean the L2 button at the singstore?
But i mean sort on language for the songs we already have at our carousel, so if we only wanna sing dutch songs that i can display only dutch songs at the carousel?

I hope you will answer again on my post ;-)

Greetings

Ahhh, ok :) Sorry for the confusion. Not at the moment but great idea. I’ll pass it on as a suggestion!

35

;-) LOL

Thanks Nina,

Hope it will come with a new firmware update….

Have a nice day (or 2 weeks) and i’ll be back on the 25th of january when you are back again with the new update ;-)

I didnt know that there is finnish music because i dont have singstar.

Thanks for the responses Nina.. I never knew about the language thingy! ;-)

38

Nina Do we have an American Singstar Content contact we could get a list of music we would like to see in the US Singstore? As it is the Singstar America blog updates don’t happen much anymore. We have a list of Latin Artists we would be very interested to at least let it be known we would love to pay for and sing with :)

38.1

Hiya,

Sure – suggestions are always welcom as you can see from previous posts, people suggest things all the time. Do you want to post the list here and I will have a look and see whether things are possible for you guys over there? Some things might now be on our wishlist yet…

Cheers,

Nina

39

Hi Nina! Happy New Year! How were your holidays? :)

Not so many for me up there. Just three.
Once in a blue moon, you told me that some Sugababes might show up…is that statement still on?(And maybe some more Pussycat Dolls decided to come on the singstore too?) :P lol

40

Hey Nina, Thanks for the update… I’m really looking forward to sing new songs this year… But I have a question… How about bringing some songs from Beyoncé, Dido, Christina Aguilera, Shakira, Alicia Keys, Aerosmith, Alexandra Burke, Backstreet Boys, Destiny’s Child, Foo Fighters, Jennifer Lopez, Jordin Sparks, Justin Timnberlake, Ke$ha, Kings Of Leon, My Chemical Romance, New Kids On The Block and Sean Kingston? None of them has ever appeared in the Singstore yet. Cheers :D

41

Sure thing! I went through a few threads on the US forums and the Latin American Artists that we would love to sing along with in the states are listed. Of course there are others but here is a decent list. Most of which are probably higher profile and trickier to get the rights to. However while I have your eyes, any of these great artists would be great!

Shakira
Julieta Venegas
Paulina Rubio
Juanes
Enrique Iglesias
Ricky Martin
Aventura
Winsin y Yandel
Miguel Bose
Jennifer Lopez
Luis Miguel
Mana
Selena
Los Bukis
Daddy Yankee
Pitbull
Belanova

41.1

Cheers, I’ll have a look through! There are a few in there I know we can’t get at the moment but will add the others to the wishlist for US and see what can be done… no promises, as always, though :)

Hi Nina, thanks for a great update. I’m a big fan of SingStar. Still I share one frustration with all my fellow fans in Poland. Is 2010 going to be another year without Polish songs in SingStore? We’ve been promised them few times and nothing. I see so many songs in other lanuages and feel left out.

42.1

Hi there,

Although we have Polish language support and do have some songs on our wishlist, they are very very hard to get. Maybe one day we’ll manage…

Nina

Hey Nina great update!
Will Hilary Duff make an appearance on the store soon. She was on that huge UMG wishlist a couple of months back. I await your response.

Thanks

43.1

Still trying to get as far as I know…

Great update, I have like 4 or 5 songs on must-buy list already! =)

Now, if you guys would only re-release some (heavens forbid, all!) of the favourite tracks from the old PS2 discs on SingStore, so those of us without the PS2 discs can enjoy them as well, this would be an awesome start to the new year with SingStar… I’m thinking songs like:

Toto – Africa
Extreme – More Than Words
Scorpions – Wind of Change / Send Me an Angel
Nickelback – How You Remind Me
Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Murder on the Dancefloor
Dido – White Flag

Here’s hoping that this new year’s wish comes true soon!

@sny83 You can use your old PS2 discs with singstar on the PS3.

Hey, are we getting any Turkish song sometime soon ?
Alexander Rybak – Fairytale ..yess thats what i was faiting for – though i was waiting for it when it first came out im bored of this song but i think singinig will be different so i hope i am just bored from listening it :)…
and is there going to be more 3 Doors Down songs ? and Green Day songs would be perfect :D Do i want too much? :D

46.1

Turkish content is not planned at the moment, sorry.

I know it’s a late post but I really hope you respond to this.

Is there any chance of having Sing-A-Longs? Like a SingStar branded Mama Mia? I can’t imagine this being too hard to do now that the video store has launch (or even as a bonus in the Blu-Ray).

I’d love to have an option to download a Sing-A-Long version of ‘Glee’. :)

Also, any chance of getting some Journey on the SingStore?! Please! :D

47.1

It’s always very difficult for us if any film/TV footage is in the videos so anything like Mamma Mia is unlikely at the moment.

I agree with Daft. That would boost sales of both SingStar as well as the movies connected to them.

And it also would be pretty kick-ass to do something very unique. I for example thought that the two Homestar Runner songs on another music game (I believe Guitar Hero) was a pretty good idea. Makes you wish for a SingStar Runner.

@OttoT: Read my post again, I was talking about people (like me) who don’t have those discs and can’t buy them, since they’re not being sold anymore.

Hey Nina!

I was wondering if there is a possibility to get some Glee songs on the singstore? Or maybe even an entire Glee-disc?

It would be so amazing and I think it could really be a hit!

50.1

Not sure that would be possible (on the store at least) for now. I’ll pass the disc suggetion on to the team. Would love it, too though :)
