Only 30 tracks? Kinda weak.

But jeeeeeeezus that's a lot of DLC. Is that all supposed to be up at launch? Amazed to see American Pie on there. One of the best songs evarrrr. And also a few other songs that I wanna see on RockBand. How the heck can Singstar get Today by the Pumpkins and we don't see it on RB?

EDIT: DAAAAAYUM they got Hammer!!!!

Oh BTW, I also posted in the GameSharing thread, but if anyone is looking at getting this and buying songs from the store, post in there as I'd be up for that.

I have some of the PS2 Singstars and I'm wondering if I could use those PS2 mics that I have for this game?

I'm kind of interested in the game. Does it get boring or is it mainly one of those games you play with your friend?

Just read this and they says YES! Looks like I'll be keeping mine as well. And the article says that's 200 songs to download at launch with around 50 or so per month there on out.

If you like karaoke then it's great. Other than that it's always a laugh with friends and/or booze.:lol:

Thanks for the post, I read Kotaku's article but it didn't have any info on the downloadable content. I'm happy about the $1.49 per song, and damn that's a big list of songs. There's some from the previous Singstars that I was hoping to see on there, but oh well.

I absolutely cannot wait for this game. I love Karaoke games and I've been wanting SingStar for ages. I just passed up because I wanted SingStar on PS3.

Only thing I want to hear is Vanilla Ice as some DLC (lol, I seriously want to sing to Ice Ice Baby, which is the only reason I want SingStar 90's Edition).

Hmm, should I buy used microphones cheap at GS and get the standalone version?

I'm SO buying M.C. Hammer and En Vogue, and I definitely plan to sing to them. :-P

I got 90's which has Hammer on there and it's hard! I suck at all the rap-o-meter songs actually.

List is good, and with up to 10 new songs a week, it should be real cool for the future.

Now I know where Sony's been allocating all the PSX games on PSN development folks. Christ what a difference.

You *know* the answer to that 'un.

EDIT: My opinion of this game? Make new cover art. I don't want to have to look at that chachi-lookin' fucker everytime I put the disc in.

At 40 bucks a disc and with 30 songs that turns out to be $1.33 each. Not that shabby, but that's the way all the SingStars have always been. 30 songs. It's just that now we actually get pick more from the store.

I do think they should have upped it to 40 maybe. Last gen it was $30 for 30 songs on PS2. They increased the price to 40 so you'd have thought that maybe we would be 40 songs. Oh well.

Still no interest in a SingStar song sharing group?

Song licensing is usually the explaination for why they don't put a lot of music in games. Sony themselves has to pay for the licensing, and if they were to have 100+ songs, that could basically mean they'd lose money on each copy sold, so that's what songs are limited (same reason as to why DDR Universe on 360 has content on the disc, but you gotta pay to use it because it pays for licensing).

I probably won't share my songs.

So, I reckon the two Logitec mics I have and the one mic that came with Rock Band don't work on this game.

Nope, because two SingStar mics plug into one USB. It works a tad different too.

The nice thing is for $1.49, you get the music video in HD.

Seriously. What were they thinking? Looks like something you'd see in a Game Infarcer review.

I may think about picking this up but I know given the songs on disc all the stuff I pick will be the DLC.

Not necessarily. I don't think there's any downloadable songs with HD video in the Euro store.

Even Sony's blog has sorta back peddled from that claim to "When you think that you’re getting the song PLUS the video by the original artist PLUS it’s all fully playable via SingStar, it’s a great value."

Apology for the noob question, but what makes singstar different than Karaoke Revolution or Rock Band Vocals?

Is this one more of a straight up Karaoke machine type thing?

Mana may have a more in depth analysis for you ....

But I think Karaoke Revolution and SingStar are very similar with SingStar having the real music videos and real artists vs Karaokes (and Rock Bands) covers/lack of music video. It's really up to what songs you can find/like on each.

As for Rock Band, I've tried both and it seems that Rock Band vocals are a lot less complex. It was very easy to get 100% on easy. On SingStar I've never got 100% on easy (some close though). That and you only really get rock songs, whereas SingStar has a larger variety.



EDIT: Still looking for people for a SingStar Gameshare group.

Anyone know if Singstar has come out in South Korea or Japan or any PS3 versions of this are scheduled for it?

I'm not familiar with many of the songs on the list, but are they all from Sony's record label?

So has there been any word on if the Mics included with the PS3 version will work with the PS2 games (played on a PS3)? confusing?

I think they should, but can't remember if I heard that around GameFAQs or not.

Amazon has a $5 off deal right now. Not sure when it expires but if you use the promotional code SINGSTAR when checking out you get $5 off. That means you can get the standalone for 35 and bundle for 55.

Here's the link.

I just pre-ordered a standalone for $34.99 with free shipping (and no tax).
