I thought that was part of some other update. It was like that for me when I played it over the weekend. They changed the scoring system a little bit. Renamed some of them such as tone deaf is now sing starter.

Is the hip hop sections any better on registering?

yeah that was all part of the 5.00 update a while back. based on my Tone Loc attempts rap songs still blow chunks. After playing DefJam Rapstar it's really hard to go back to even look at rap songs on SingStar.

Maybe I'll try again and put it up for my Thursday trophy hunting upload.

Don't know how long it's been in, but you can hit circle at any time to toggle the video feed and the camera feed.

Still no Move support, not even for navigating menus.
Calibration options now allowed for video calibration and manually turning on or off the gray guide that is just ahead of where your pitch appears.

I know it wasn't in before E3, because they told me that feature was going in later.

Of course, there was no wireless mic date. But I just manned up and imported them.

totally found that by accident as well

hey what happened to voice control? I still see the 'extra' in my list but I can't figure out how to use voice navigation.

and is there a post about doing a UK account. I think I'm going to man up and create a UK account but I need to know how it works and what all. :extreme lazy:

so yet again new firmware it says it's prepping for Dance and Guitar? or something like that but far as I'm concerned the big innovation is the return of voice control. thanks very much Studio London?

So let me get this straight.

It's released today, but somehow amazon (prime) hasn't shipped my copy out yet.

There's no official blog post saying 'looky here SS Dance has released'.

A quick check of the singstore reveals not only no dance dlc, but no new songs period.

Sad thing is I've heard generally positive things from peeps who've already got their hands on it. :(

Par for the course I'm afraid. After the uk getting yet another great update last week, and the us getting FOUR songs, I have little hope for ss dance...

I'm passing on Singstar Dance for now...I imagine it will be <$20 pretty soon. I guess Singstar Guitar isn't coming here, which is pretty unfortunate because it had decent tracks.

I'm pretty sure it has to come out at some point, since they added guitar specific trophies after the latest patch was released.

Maybe, but I don't have much faith in the Singstar team. They could have passed on the US market because of the stiffer competition here from Guitar Hero and Rock Band....obviously the EU has a much bigger Singstar fanbase.

It also doesn't make a whole lot of sense for them to delay the release past this holiday season, unless they had unforseen issues. After all, music game genre is arguably past its peak.

Still, did the US store ever get the Guitar addons?

Hi Guys, I've just bought some Wireless SingStar Microphones and Disney Sing It: Family Hits for my little sister for Christmas. However, I've never bought a SingStar game before. Seeing that I've recently purchased two Move controllers I was thinking that SingStar Dance could be my first entry in to the franchise. But, who here has played it? I have read mixed reviews about the game! E.g the dancing isn't very accurate etc. If you have played it could you let me know if it is decent or not please! Thanks.

So I canceled my Amazon order and picked up locally.

Game is pretty much as advertised. Only complaints so far are that i need more room. Both my wife and i are pretty tall and it seemed we were using most of the living room. Also, the lack of any 'dance' songs in the store is inexcusable.

So is it all modern pop crap, or what? I'm guessing you won't see many US updates for dance tracks honestly.

Is anyone else finding it sad that both Sony and Microsoft are shitting all over us with a lack of DLC for these games, but Konami and Harmonix are hitting it out of the park week after week with both Def Jam Rapstar and Rock Band?

Def Jam rapstar has had updates week after week since release of some really solid tunes. I know it won't go on forever, but damn. Lips on the other hand is now down to 2 songs per week. Microsoft killed their forum as well during the new site update, so you can't even see what is upcoming for the following month. It just amazes me that all these companies can't support the games properly anymore after release. There are literally THOUSANDS of songs that could be put out and yet, they just sit on them.

Yeah. I saw that a few months ago. I still imagine that we won't see many true dance tracks that aren't played on the radio however.

Yeah, it's pretty sad how Rapstar is showing better support for their game then the support Sony is giving to SingStar here in the US, though for how long Konami will support Rapstar remains to be seen (they're doing a damn good job at it though!).
If the people responsible for SingStar had really put a real effort in trying to get new songs for the game, even if we had to pay a premium for particular songs in the SingStore, I'm pretty sure it would have been a soaring success... With that said, I have low expectations in regards to how well supported SingStar Dance would be. :-?

I'm close to getting Family Hits. I'm near the top of the queue for it on Goozex, so I'm just waiting on getting matched.
