So I just uploaded some videos and I have to say I LOVE this aspect of the game. I can't wait till I can convince more people to come over and play this. Rock band needs to get this feature!

Just got this game. Boy do I suck. Lol. Oh well. I'll see about trying to upload a video or two. I tried finding Cheapy but going through the list of C took forever so I gave up and just watch Mana.
Added a couple of videos and pictures. Damn I suck. Oh well. It's pretty fun, well worth the money. If anybody knows, how do you change your name for uploaded videos, from Player 1 Player 2?

I can't find the game only version of this anywhere! >.<


i bought the game only version from amazon. someone posted a discount code, which i believe was SINGSTAR that got you $5 off. not sure if it's still active, it might've been for preorders only.

anyone know where to get wireless microphones for this game?

it looks like they're using wireless microphones in the intro to the game, but a quick search at amazon turns up nothing.

All microphones are wired right now. Making them wireless would increase costs right now.

thanks Mana, maybe with the next PS3 version that comes out they'll have them, but i doubt it.

it's stupid that they'd put that in the intro to the game when they're not even available.

According to js1 in the PSN Cards thread, it appears Meijer may have gotten them in; therefore, I'm going to check mine out tomorrow. If people have trouble finding them, I might be willing to help some out, but we'll see.

Ummm...I beginning to hate this game.
I love the actual game,
but the Singstore...
It hates me.
It won't let me download anything. It has froze EVERY single time (I've tried 30+ times).

Weird, because I don't seem to have issues anymore, but then again, I try not to stay long. I just try aiming for what I want and buy quickly.

it froze on me the first time i tried to access it, which was about 2 weeks ago. i then logged back in immediately after rebooting the system, and successfully downloaded 4 songs. i've only gone into the store once since then, about a week ago, and i had no problem browsing for about 5-10 minutes.

hopefully they get whatever issues they have cleared up, and you can start downloading songs, Azumangaman.

the only issue that i really had was that the downloads took FOREVER. it shouldn't take 45 minutes to download 4 songs.

Finally got to play this today since my PS3 arrived. Pretty fun game, downloaded 5 songs for now. Glad to hear I'm not the only one with slow downloads, was thinking it might be my end at first. Don't have any videos/pictures yet but feel free to add me!

I...
almost fell in love...
With the Singstar store.

I bought 9 songs.
None of them downloaded. They stopped downloading because there was an ENORMOUS thunderstorm.
Something really weird happened. The video just disappeared for the PS3. Everything is still plugged in and you can still hear everything. But no video. So I can't d/l the Singstar songs (they're in my Queue).

Oh well, I do have to study all week anyway (EXAMS!)

Ok so I'm happy.
I managed to purchase 22 songs.
'Cept they're all downloading.
Is there any way to check the download progress?

It has said "1 0f 22" at the bottom of the screen for a while now...

EDIT: Nevermind, I figured out that "the bottom of the screen" part is exactly where the progress shows :D
Its now 3 of 30 :P

I LOVE the Singstore. It works incredibly well now.
I also love Sing Star

You buy WAY too many songs. :-P But I can understand, because the music is so great in the game. Personally, I'm a big fan of more traditional music (which I normally hear on radio stations or music I grew up with) along with the music videos in the background, and it's what SingStar provides.

It was a buildup. And I had no idea so many great songs are in Singstar.
Only 5 downloaded, and Singstar was mad at me, I'll have to retry to d/l the rest of them.

I know there are some good songs in the list already but has anyone heard about us getting Crystal Kay to download? She's J-Pop but she IS a Sony artist and has some great songs.

There seems to be a stealth update on the SingStar store. I say that because I noticed Avril Lavigne "Complicated" is up.

Both of her songs (Complicated and My Happy Ending) were up the day of the 6/13 update. I think some others were also new to the US Store but not listed as NEW b/c these songs were already up in Europe.

Well, they were never up before in the U.S. store, since I don't look at new songs (I usually look at all songs). Kind of weird.

I still want to know what happened to "Heaven Is A Place On Earth", because I'd download that right now.

Are any of the videos in HD? Do they plan on releasing them in HD? Do other regions have different songs available that we don't?

One video is HD. I thought the main reason videos were not in HD was to save space, but I'm thinking many of the songs may not have a native HD video (due to being old).

Oh yes. UK has atleast 40 songs on us, maybe more after the recent updates. Off the top of my head I can remember Alice Cooper and the Darkness.

Is anyone else finding that actually downloading the songs is much more difficult than actually buying them? I bought 30 last week, and its taken me an entire week to d/l 10 of them.
Its because the SINGSTAR server sucks so much.
Damn.
Still love the game though.

Well, I bought three songs yesterday and it took me around 5-10 minutes to download all.

That sucks to hear because when I bought 15 songs, it took me like an hour at the most to download all (I think). However, I have Verizon FiOS internet (which is pretty high speed).

I just picked this up last night for $53 at Costco (I missed out on the GS deal) and so far I love it! The Singstar online stuff is pretty slick, and I bought 11 songs last night and didn't have a single issue with the store. It took about 20 mins to download them all.

The one thing I don't understand is the availabilty of certain songs, or lack of. I would love to get Fix You by Coldplay, or Feel Good Inc. by the Gorillaz, as they were removed from the USA release. They should have these songs on the store!
