Kinda surprised that Rock Band got the rights to release Lady Gaga "Bad Romance" first than Singstar.

Well, it's just a matter of time.
Music video licensing being additional on top of the song and performance rights is an extra hoop that Sony have to jump through which Harmonix don't have to worry about.

I think the fastest turnaround on a new song from it charting/being popular to appearing on the Singstore is about 3-4 months (the Lily Allen and JLS stuff last year for example) as they have to do all the licensing, prepare the song and video for download and then run it through testing before it can go live.

Anyone know if Sony has done a George Michael dump in Singstar?

I'd pretty much buy ANY song they put on there. I could have sworn Sony owned most of his catalogue as well so it seemed strange to not see a flodd of his songs on there.

I'm in Australia though so it might not be the same though. Haven't been on Songstar in AGES so I thought I;d check in case anyone knew.

I finally changed my main SingStar disc to SingStar Chartbreaker, as the cover of my SingStar Hits didn't match the new PS3 slim artwork.

I'm quite happy about the songs, singing to Touch Me is a blast. :D

I need a new main disc. Where is a good place to import from UK to North America from these days?

Singstar noob here. Picked up Singstar Queen PS3 for 10 bucks today, now I need mics. I see that the PS2 mics work / are possibly the same thing? I found 2 of the mics for 20, but also found a ps2 game and mic bundle for 22. Will the ps2 singstar work in a backwards compatible ps3? Thanks for the help guys.

The mics will work on your PS3. And yes, PS2 Singstar discs work on all PS3 models via the in-game disc-swap.

Have a fun! Enjoy!

You might want to consider the wireless versions tho. Depends on how much you want to spend.

I ordered SingStar Take That (my main disc!) from CDWow and it was painless and relatively quick.

Another potential SingStar source I've also dealt with is Amazon.de (where I got Giana Sisters DS). That was a great experience; kinda pricey, but great nonetheless.

I mostly use Amazon or eBay .de or .fr.

Wireless mics get. :D

My brother-in-law bought the Starter Pack in Holland. 50 euro. Anyone know the song list on the disk? And, someone know if you can use the free music voucher in any singstore?

Sophie Ellis Baxter!

I love Murder on the Dance Floor!

PS... best place to buy Singstar Vol. 3? It has Viva La Vida, which I've been dying to get on SingStar.

Just wanted to give a personal note of recommendation for Kisschasy. Particularly for "Opinions". Obviously everyone's tastes will vary, but regulars should know my taste in music anyway by now. :)

Fuck the song packs, especially the Island Record one. U2 and Common People are very enticing though.

Does that mean they have opened the flood gate for more U2 tracks?

As for this week, nothing except Razorlight for me.

Is there any reason why Franz Ferdinand "Ulysses" is UK-only? I went to FF show last friday and it was awesome, I want that song really bad. "Can't Stop Feeling" and "Dark of the Matinee" for a songpack would be perfect.

For this week, Surfin' USA and some LTTP stuff like Kaiser Chiefs and Friendly Fires.

Ugh, price gouging by bundling With or Without You. Must... stay... strong...

It's nice to know I can start playing SingStar again in 2 weeks. :lol

Nothing for me this week, though maybe I'll buy Surfin' USA on impulse. I would love Kokomo though. :lol

"Bad Romance" and "Lovegame" will also be released as singles in the PAL April 8 update.
Saw this on the facebook update. Also saw that the update itself was inexplicably delayed. Hopefully, the U2 song comes unbundled as well.

Just joined the NeoGAF club at Singstar Online. I'm surprised there aren't more people there (there were like 64 when I joined... come on pussies, show your faces!! :D). If you want to see me destroy a couple of songs my PSN id is sicko23.

I hope so too but I think it's really unlikely. The Stereophonics songs are still not available as singles. In Lady Gaga's case they kinda have to do it to avoid massive backlash with 3 of the songs in the pack already available as singles.

Browsed through a few pages, I'm probably blind, but does anyone have a good source for insta-delivery UK PSN cards? Having a party this weekend, and need a few from the other side of the pond. Thanks.
