This week on the SingStore (25 February 2010)

Hiya and welcome to this weeks SingStore update

As always, you can find the full tracklisting below so I will keep this one short and sweet. There’s some more Lionel Richie (if you didn’t think the SongPack was enough) with ‘You Are’ and Truly’ plus cool tracks from the awesome Wolfmother, Pixi Lott, The Human League and Desmon Dekker. All in all, a nice little mix, don’t you think!?

Pixie Lott - Boys & Girls

The best thing ever this week however is the rockin’, rollin’ Stereophonics SongPack which includes five of their finest hits, from classic ‘Maybe Tomorrow’ to more recent material such as ‘Innocent’ and ‘Could You be The One?’.

And that’s not all folks because with this SongPack we are also launching an exclusive Stereophonics competition. All you have to do is upload a video of yourself performing any of the Stereophonics tracks from the SongPack to MySingStar Online and you’ll automatically be entered into the competition.

Keep on checking the blog, ingame and singstargame.com for more info, prizes and another very special Stereophonics announcement.

Cheerio,

Nina xx

Human League :) Yay! At last! Hopefully that is the beginning of the tracks from them, there is a wealth of superb songs!

Definitely get a few other ones but that is the standout track, thankyou Nina !!

Any news of Alphabeat :) ?

Cheers again! Dave

1.1

No news as yet :)

Couple of good ones.
What happened to The Saturdays song pack though?

Nina,

The Facebook listing (http://www.facebook.com/notes/singstar-uk-vip-lounge/singstore-update/317703384023) includes additional songs not mentioned here. Which is right?

3.1

Hey – yes, there should definitely be more! Not sure what happened here.

Hi Nina, how come the US didn’t get u + ur hand by pink in the last update?

4.1

Hey – I think I answered that on the last post already but her it is again: Unfortunately, there was an issue with the video so we weren’t able to release it over there. Sorry!

is Taylor Swift ever going to appear

5.1

Don’t know yet!

OMG!! Stereophonics!!!!??? Thank you thank you Nina! but please tell me, this is going to be released on The US Store please please.
Hey what about a Travis Pack? or a Muse pack? haha i mean not right now, but hope you can keep an eye on it :) please?
Thank you again Nina.

6.1

I’m afraid I have to be the bearer of bad nwews for you. The Stereophonics pack will not be released in the US for now. SORRY!

Stereophonics rocks! I’m definitely getting that one!
Agreed with chrisrus1, I would love to see some “taylor swift” on the store. I guess I’ll stick singing and playing it on Band Hero :)

Hi Nina, nice to see some Human League and more Pixie Lott. Any chance of any swing tracks in the future?

Hello Nina,
Thank you for the information on this new update the SingStore. I note again that no French music is present in this update. I know you’ll tell me it is hard to have titles in French because French law. Does this lack of French music is the result of a new bluray Singstar for France? Many French lost patience and began to turn to the concurence becoming increasingly important in France: Sing it on WII with a playlist French, Lips 2 on Xbox 360 and also Karaoke Revolution on PS3 with a dual mode online. I try to keep optimistic with respect to Singstar, but it becomes very difficult. Is what I might have some information to maintain their optimism visa vis Singstar? Can you also tell me where is the folder Gilbert Montagne? the last time you said that your team license was about to investigate his case. Nina thank you for all your responses. Xavier

9.1

Hi Xavier,

There is no new local disc planned for France at the moment.

With regards to Gilbert Montagne, this is indeed being investigated but I cannot give you any more information than that at the moment, I’m afraid.

Merci,
Nina

Finaly Woman (Wolfmother) It is the theme song from singstar (PS3) now you release it in the Singstore :P very strange xD

Nice update altrought,
Kind Regards,
Sami

Only Pixie Lot for me. :( I was hoping for more this week cause I am having my birthday party this Saturday. Oh Nina did you see my post on the previous update about the Pink song?

11.1

Happy Birthday for Saturday!

Only 14 songs ?? :(

12.1

Nope – actually 39 – I will get the post updated asap.

Had a look through the songs, and I’ll be picking up Pixie Lott and Wolfmother (“Woman”). Considered getting the one from The Script, but I’d rather hold out for “Breakeven”. :P

My super-awesome Australian artist recommendation of the fortnight is Australian singer Kate Miller-Heidke. Especially her songs “Caught In The Crowd” and “The Last Day on Earth”. Fingers crossed things are licensable on your end. :)

Yaaaaaaaaaay Pixie!!

Lol at wolfmother being released now… wasn’t it the song from the first PS3 disc’s intro??

@DJDamian… a Saturdays songpack?? CAMP! Where did you get this information and when is it out!!

Stereophonics – Maybe Tomorrow :D :D YEAAH :D

thanks Nina :P

This update is good. Keep it up the good work ;)
Nina, Is there gonna be a songpack for The Scripts in the future? I’m loving their songs so much :D

Great for Coti! Please bring on more songs from him and other latin artists.

Still no metalsongs on the horizon?

Hi Nina this is my first time commenting even though I always check out the new updates for a few songs that never appear so I would just like to ask will the following ever be available:

any Interpol songs

Supergrass – moving

any Futurehead songs

any Michael Jackson songs

any indication to whether or not I will ever see these would be fantastic

keep up the good work

Kyle :)

22.1

Hi and welcome to the blog :)

As usual, it’s hard to tell what will make it to the store or not. Michael Jackson is less likely than the others for now though.

VERY VERY Poor update again …
If a great french song was released on the singstore, 100% of french people would buy it! Especially french festive songs for karaoke parties!
Instead, you keep on releasing 80% unknown songs in France (and it’s even worse since the beginning of 2010)…
Singstar seems to be for UK only… I used to believe in Singstar and Singstore but it seems that Singstar team don’t believe in Singstar french community…
Sad… :-(

23.1

Hi allybaf,

We do care about the French community (and all the others, of course) but as I have tried to explain many times before, getting French content for the store is very very difficult for us. We are continuing to work on French content, so hopefully we will see some more tracks coming through soon.

Nina

gr8 update can we have some more Beyoncé and the saturdays please thx u :)

Fascination and Woman for the win. Darn good update. Fascination is going to be hilarious to sing at parties

I’ve enjoyed the last few updates, this one is also good!!! Will be getting a few tracks from Jackson 5, Human League and Taio Cruz. Interesting that this song is being released i know it came out last year, but has just begun charting in New Zealand which is excellent for us!

Spice Girls please

Hello Nina. With the release of Michael Jacksons’ ‘This Is It’ DVD/Blu-ray this week, it would have been great to see some of his songs on SingStore for this update especially. Please could you continue trying your best to get his songs onto the Store. Thank you.

We don’t hope even more that Singstar puts on the singstore italian songs, because every update there is always nothing…
But that you add an italian song in language Spanish it sounds like a joke!
Why “felicidad” and not “Felicità”, the original italian version??
Why in 2 years you release only one song in italian (Gocce di memoria) that there isn’t in any disc yet?
Thank you for your response

30.1

Hiya – this track was released in Spanish on a disc and that is why we will also try and release it on the store afterwards.

I can only keep on repeating the same thing – we try and get songs in every language for the store but in some cases this is easier than others.

not a bad update…. B+

Any chance of any michael buble anytime soon??

keep up the good work

31.1

Wow – you’re marking the store updates? :)

Possible but no idea at the moment!

32

Wow, One True Voice, that’s an odd blast from the past! Did the person in charge of picking songs lose a bet or something? :-)

Any idea if it’s possible to get Symphonie by Silbermond, please? I know it’s a German track, but it’s still good, honest… ;-)

32.1

Haha – classic, that one, surely? :)

I agree, great track! Consider it added to the wishlist…

In late 2009, you mentioned the arrival of the Beta key for the game Singstar. Or what is it?

Thank you Nina for always answer our questions. What do you think of our group on facebook King of Singstar (search king of singstar). Moreover, our group has VIP Sony Playstation France whose software responsible France

Nina I thought they were handing over Singstar stuff to the US team but why do they seem to drop the ball on getting the US singstore any good songs? Europe and UK seems to get all the US titles and we get a bunch of ones we don’t know who they are. Can you relay to the US team they are losing revenue by getting good songs for US store.

Can we get some Beyoncy, Lady Gaga, Fergie, or at least have them up load songs to the store from the ps2 discs since so obviously had been approved. It would at least be good if they could upload all songs from previous ps2 discs to the store since not backwards compatible.

37

Hiya,

We are always trying our best to get what we can.

It’s not that we don’t want you to have the ‘good’ songs, we are literally not able to release most of them onto the US store for now.

Hope this helps for now. If the situation changes you’ll be the first to know, I promise.

Cheers,

Nina

nina also do want to thank you for being the lone voice that at least keeps us in the loop thanks for all you do. Any idea on future singstar disc releases for US?

38.1

Pleasure : )

I am not aware of any new releases for now…but that could always change very radpidly.

39

Helllo, how about adding “Valentine – Kina Grannis” to the singstore :-) . She’s not all that famous but I’m pretty sure that song would fit a lot of people out there, little doubt it would be a very appreciated song.

Nice to see you added “I’m sticking with you – Velvet Underground” though, I’ll get that eventually :-) .

Hey Nina, how about Brandy and Monica – The Boy is Mine? I think it would be a wicked duet!

40.1

It would but we can’t get it at the moment :(

WOW Nina What an amazing update !
Break your heart ! I’ve never thought of singing this in Singstar !
It’ll be perfeect , and Unbreak your heart , and Juntos are perfert too , I’m so grateful ! But I’d like some of KATY PERRY (Hot and Cold , I kissed a Girl , Waking Up in Vegas , Thinking of you ..) and please My life would suck without you , some BEP (Meet me halfway and I gotta a feeling) and Bad Romance ! Can any of them be possible ?? Kisses from Spain !

Too bad it won’t be avaliable on the US Store :(
But don’t worry Nina, i’ll have to buy an European PSN Card to get the pack, but not at this moment, i’ll have to wait. But thank yo so much.
I hope you can keep me in touch if there’s a chance of getting more Travis and some Muse songs in the future.
Thanks again

42.1

Sorry I can’t be of more help.

No Muse at this point, I’m afraid…

Oh by the way, this is my European Account, but i’m from Mexico, i’m a huge Singstar fan, The Mexican Singstore is the same as the US. Cheers from Mexico Nina.

I won’t be buying anything this week. Again. Where is bad romance? And can we please have some Hilary Duff?

Hello Nina
There is a sound problem on this music: Modern Talking “You’re my heart, you’re my soul” Towards the end of the song the sound volume decreases for 15 seconds and resumes its normal volume. A repair is feasible? The problem was met by several people.

Didn’t find any contact address on the official Singstar site so I try here;

If I have a problem with a song that is completly out of sync, what do I do? :S
Can’t download it again since it’s already in the HDD.
It’s “Online” with Brad Paisley :)

I have ~20 other downloaded songs and they all works great but this one I can not sing at the same time as the music, if I do it’s a complete failure. Didn’t notice it at first because it is a quite difficult song.. (imo). Please help..

46.1

Hiya,

To be able to re-download the song you will have to delete it from your HDD first and then download it again from your purchase history. Let me know if that doesn’t work and we’ll investigate further.

Thanks,

Nina

Hi, thanks for your answer.
Does that mean I have to delete the whole gamedata file? That’s 1.4GB :(
Guess there is no other way..

Nevermind, found how to do it :)

Me again.. ;)

Well that didn’t seem to help. If i look att the lyrics the first word fills upp before he starts singing it in the song.

It’s calibrated and such and all other songs works fine.. Would be nice to get over 3000 points on Easy on that song at least one time ;)
Thanks!

49.1

Let me have a look at the song…

49.2

Hi there,

We had a look at this song and re-tested it and there is no problem with it as far as we can see. Sorry, I can’t be of more help to you but if we can’t see anything wrong with it, it is hard to fix it :)

All I can suggest is maybe delete it, wait for todays update to go live and then re-download it again?

Thanks,

Nina

Can we request that the US Singstar team be let go? They never have any communication to the community at all we are always left out to dry on songs. The UK and EU regions get more US songs than we do. Not to mention the only communication we get is off of the EU blog which we are at least grateful to Nina for still giving us info. If they are going to break all the updates by regions they should at least assign someone to US region and have them monitor the US singstore room and communicate with us.
