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.


Not a bad idea, but I can't imagine it being traded that frequently. Unfortunately, the closest Gamestop with a copy is over 20 miles away and it isn't available online.

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?


I did some checking and Singstar Guitar isn't coming here. We should get Guitar addons for the store in the next few weeks though.

i'm so sad about SS Disney but yeah I've been eyeing family hits as a replacement. What's the word on Motown? any chance of that coming over?

I don't think Motown will ever come out here (still doesn't make any sense, Motown is a US thing!). Game has been out in the U.K. for a year now, and Sony has been mum about it's release here. I think importing is the only option, or eBay if you're lucky... :/

you know what occurs to me. As much as we like to say we want these music games to be a platform supported by DLC that pretty much never happens. Either you get constant iterations like Guitar Hero and Rock Band or you die out like Lips.

The games always start out like DefJam Rapstar but it never lasts. Singstar somehow manages to give us the mix of the worst of both worlds. Iterative discs and low levels of DLC.

====
So I have a question about UK accounts. When I download UK DLC it shows up like any other DLC that's fine. When I'm online can I upload UK tracks now and see UK songs?

Can anyone with ss dance comment if you can just sing only? If so, I'll buy it just for the tracks...

Yes, you can. They're effectively all the same game now, just with different tracks on disc. At least, that's the conclusion I've come to after using SS, SS Dance, and Singstar viewer.

I never realized you could use a PSP to manage a playlist during gameplay. Tried it out the other day and its a pretty brilliant idea.

Sadly you can't buy add-ons for the disc songs. But at least you can get guitar/dance without the disc. That's why I love Singstar. 1 single engine.

it's great I'm sure. but I wish there was a way to set up a playlist without one. oh well. if that was the worst of my complaints I wouldn't even bring it up.

The best part of the PSP playlist is changing game modes. So you can pick a song, and then pick HOW to sing it, so you can change from duet to solo easily. It even gives time estimates until when that song will play.

At work, I sometimes can get games. I got a copy of Singstar Guitar (PAL). Has this game been localized at all?


Nope, no release here or ever. But it will work just fine.

are you kidding me? that's awesome. man this sucks. I really want that. I'm gonna head to craigslist and see if I can find a really cheap PSP-1000. It'll work with a 1000 right long as the firmware is current?

I enjoy how the lag on the PS-Eye's recording gives the illusion in videos that I'm dancing fluidly. :D

Wow, this totally made my day... Does this mean that SingStar is no longer dead in the water, at least here in the U.S.? Here's hoping they will make good on that promise for a great 2011! :D

Let's hope, because after the past week's update of 4 obscure songs, I was giving up hope.

The main reason why we didn't get many songs Europe had as because UMG owned some rights. Now that is has been lifted, we can finally get them. Expect MUCH better SingStar updates from now on.

Like I told everyone before, UMG was holding back the U.S.

I'm just glad there will be some Dance tracks.

Also, haven't really checked but is there a way to filter by game mode? My wife keeps complaining that she'd just like to see the Dance songs instead of all of them (we have quite a few).

Yeah, in the SingStore, go to 'Song Types' (or something like that), and you can choose whether to see Dance, Guitar, Rap, or Duet songs. :)

The dance songs are becoming excellent quickly IMO.

Oops, I mean't in the actual game. When SingStar Dance is popped in and she's searching thru the songs for one to play she also has to flip thru the non-Dance tracks which can be a pain.
