SingStar holiday update details

New features drop in time for the Christmas carnage

You knew it was coming. Sony has released details on a SingStar update that not only fixes a few glitches but adds a whole bunch of new features. Your girlfriend will be pleased. You might not be.

"Firstly, and most importantly, this update fixes the missing songs (although you will have to re-download those that are missing), problems with videos and other issues a number of you found with the previous version update," said Erin English, product marketing manager.

Here's the full list of fixes and features:


  • What's Hot? - Now you can see Top 10s on the SingStore - our hottest content from current Top 10 downloads to top festive tunes.
    Quick Buy - Watching a media clip of someone singing a song you really like and want to add it to your collection? Now you can go and view it directly in the SingStore with the press of a button!
  • SingStore On Demand - You can preview and purchase SingStore songs available directly from the Song Selection screen in the game. Just press the Square button and you can view the whole SingStore catalog while playing.
    Previously Purchased Content - If you're in SingStore, you can instantly see which songs you've bought before.
  • Download all purchased songs option - In the SingStore, you can now download all the tracks you've purchased before quickly and easily. Just go to 'Purchase History' and select from there.

My SingStar Online:

  • My Favorite Media - This feature allows you to bookmark your favorite media clips in the community in your profile, so you can quickly watch them again and again.
    Clubs - You can transfer leadership of a club to another person.


  • Cartoon Interface - This gives child-friendly in-game feedback and end-of-song rankings.
  • XMB User Player Profiles - When adding player names into your new game, you can now select from names stored on XMB (i.e. login profiles).

And with over 20 million copies sold worldwide, there's more than just a chance a few of us will enouncter a mic over Christmas. Good luck men.
