I have some videos I want to upload but they bother me because my glasses get way glare-y from my tv. Can't find a way to fix that other than just turning my TV off which, well, I can still get awesome scores but it serves little purpose.

Hmmm.

Well, videos just show you, not the TV screen, so people may not notice.

Did you create your My SingStar Profile, because I didn't see it listed?

Wouldn't it be easier to take your glasses off?

For some people, it may be too hard to see without them. :-P

Some may have saw, in the CAG Chat, I played some SingStar.

A little of column a, a little of column b. I'm just a hair off legally blind in my left eye but I have lyrics memorized for nearly all the songs I play anyhoo, but I'm also way too attached to my glasses to take them off and let people see me without them. I'm weird like that.

My profile is up, a few audios uploaded and a profile pic... dunno why it's not showing up for you, Mana!

I saw your profile now. I rated your video too. ;)

I uploaded two more videos into YouTube, but I'm going to post them in my blog first.

I just got this game, and all I get is feedback... it's been a pretty useless so far. Also, I hate that you have to look in two places when singing, one for the words, and the other for the pitch. In Rock Band the pitch is right on top of the lyric, and the mic has noise reduction. This game sucks.

The Singing in SingStar games has always been different. I actually prefer it over the other methods because it's a lot easier to follow the songs. I mean, you can't HUM a song to win, you actually have to know the words a bit and time it right, which is what I like.

You should read my SingStar blog entry Azu. ;)

Yeah, I gotta say the same thing to. SingStar is the game I've had the most fun with all year. Singing is fun, viewing videos is fun, and even previewing various music is fun.

I want some more Jamiroquai.

BTW, whatever happened to the 50+ songs a month that Sony had promised. I really hope Thursdays update has something enticing to purchase.

Uh, songs aren't exactly updated with the PS Store. There's actually 50+ songs per month, but there's one flaw with the logic, it includes ALL regions (some songs are region locked due to licensing and language barriers, like we wouldn't get a Spanish or German song).

This is what the U.K. is getting. We might get some of the songs and some others:

In English:

Blue - "One Love"
Blur - "Coffee & TV"
Cindy Lauper – “She Bop”
Coldplay - "Fix You"
Culture Club – “Karma Chameleon”
David Bowie - "Absolute Beginners"
Franz Ferdinand – “Do You Wanna”
Franz Ferdinand – “Take Me Out”
Hanna Pakarinen - "Leave Me Alone"
Hard-Fi - "Cash Machine"
Hot Chip – “Over And Over”
OutKast - "Hey Ya!"
Placebo - "Nancy Boy"
Sanna Nielsen - "Empty Room"
Saybia - "The Day After Tomorrow"
Suede – “Beautiful Ones”
Sunrise Ave - "Fairytale Gone Bad"
The Magic Numbers – “This Is A Song”
The Offspring - "Self-Esteem"
The Rasmus - "Chill"
The Rasmus - "In My Life"
The Rasmus - "No Fear"
The Rasmus - "Shot"
The Stone Roses - "She Bangs The Drums"
The Ting Tings - "Great DJ"
The Wombats - "Backfire At The Disco"

In Finnish:

Indica - "Ikuinen Virta"
Kotiteollisuus - "Helvetistä Itään"
Kotiteollisuus - "Tämän Taivaan Alla"

In French:

Luke - "Hasta siempre"
Tina Arena - "Aller plus haut"


In German:

Falco - "Out Of The Dark"
Helge Schneider - "Käsebrot"
Jumpy & Mungo Jerry - "In Der Winterzeit"

In Italian:

Anna Oxa - "Senza Pietà"
Velvet - "Funzioni Primarie"

In Portuguese:

Da Weasel - "Dialectos da Ternura"

In Swedish:

Barbados - "Världen Utanför"
Kikki, Bettan & Lotta - "Vem É Dé Du Vill Ha"
Roger Pontare - "När Vindarna Viskar Mitt Namn"
Sanna Nielsen - "Empty Room"

Euro PS3 forums

Let me say, some of these are Volume 1 songs because Europe just got Volume 2. And there's a good chance we'll get some songs the U.K. already has. I just posted this because we may get something from it.

All this Blur and no "Girls and Boys" is a damned shame.

I don't suspect the US update will look like that, TMK.

I just posted what I saw U.K. was getting. Sometimes, we get a few songs they do, along with others they might have already gotten. Once I see the news, I'll post.

it seems like there's a lot of songs in the singstore that were on the PS2 games. which is great if you only have the PS3 version, but since i have the older versions it kinda sucks when an update contains a handful of songs that i technically already have.

I kind of disagree there, since I actually want to see more PS2 songs on PS3, yet I'm seeing mostly newer songs update (It seems like we get 1-2 PS2 songs max per update). But I dunno, that's how I see it.

At least it isn't like KR: American Idol Encore, which ONLY adds old music.

Sweet. That Coffee & TV video was great, I'll probably end up getting that.

I'll have to check the rest out. More Ting Tings is good.

Edit: I can't really complain although being British I think I'm more into what they do put up, but like Rock Band I don't like most of the stuff they put up but at least they do put up stuff regularly.

is there a way to get it from another region anyhow? these updates are awful. i wish the dlc wasn't all so UK focused. I haven't heard of 75% of the artists on the online store and about 90% of the artists i do know, i wouldn't want anyhow.

yeah - I'm a bit disappointed in the updates. Wish is was more "US-centric" songs. But at least they are updating regularly with a good amount of songs each time so I can't really complain. I think I've bought like 10 or 15 songs now so there's still plenty more I'd like to get that are already available.

I started watching videos and learned more about music that way. The game is more European centric, which explains why we get music for them mostly (SingStar is gaining popularity here, but still far from being Europe level).

I heard that songs by Queen, there does seem to be problems licensing it for the states.

More The Ting Tings is great to hear. :D
