Hi guys,

 

The new SingStar Icon on the XMB that came with the update cannot be removed currently. The data inside the icon to run the software (approx 113mb) can be deleted but the icon will remain on there- (Press triangle and X on delete).

I have just read through the entire thread.  Many , many unhappy people.  This is a moderated thread, not a monitored thread.  It seems that Sony are not interested in their customers opinion.

 

However, I am interested the the poster called Strangeplaice.  He(?) appears in post No. 158 on 21-12-2012, two months after the thread started. He is a MVP Champion.  As far as I know this means he is supposed to help people with their problems.  He has posted 10,440 posts since 2007.  As far as I can make out, he is of no help here at all.  I think he is a patsy, someone that Sony bought in as a spokesperson for the corporation.

 

As for MH637099, the less said about him the better.  Complains about us complaining.  Don't get that at all.

 

I am now convinced that Sony will do nothing about this issue.  They will wait for the furore to die down and then start to introduce more and more ads like these, probably selling the space to the highest bidder.

 

If I had enough money, I would take Sony to court over this.


 

You would take them to court over a bit of tech that you dont own. You have a license to use playstation hardware and software and they can do whatever they want with there own console. It would be like you buiding something and then some randomer coming in and demanding you change the color just beacuse .... 

 

Take them to court, in fact i encourage it.... it might make a few people a bit more educated around here

 MVP stands for "Most Valued PlayStationer". A rank given out for people who give their time voluntarily to helping the forum in whatever way. I can also confirm that I am not employed by Sony in any way shape or form and never have been to this date.

 

 RabidWalker, who has posted in this thread  previously,was employed by Sony at the time of posting but is no longer in that position. For Sony's official stance at the various times, read his posts.

 

As for the Singstar Icon, I don't like it. I never have and never will. It's an icon and it annoys me just as much as the windows logo does when I turn on my PC. Not in any way at all. The loss of Linux support was far worse than the addition of an icon.

 

I'll repeat what I said way back on the 21-12-2012 seeing as you picked that out in particular. Vote with your feet. If you don't like it, don't use it and they'll take the hint. People stopped playing MAG, they're shutting that down. Simple as that.

 

 Now if you don't mind, can you try to keep on topic and not vent at us members? We didn't put Singstar on the XMB. :smileyindifferent:

It's using no space on your hard drive as you need to download an application to use it.

Sony don't need your consent as you already gave it when you signed up to PSN.

(It was in that big Terms of Use agreement you didn't read ;))

Sorry how much does PSN cost vs xbox live? Whats wrong with a small, easily missed advert for a game within the game section?

Ive gotton used to it so much now, ie, i dont see it. just scroll down past it.. simples

Not like its freezing your system and causing potential HDD problems - which does annoy me.

There's no need for it to be immovable, sure have it there to start and reinstall with any new firmware if you like but have the option to delete at least or move to folder for those that aren't interested.

Well here's where my money is going next-gen: http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/valve-steam-box-release-date-news-and-features-1127072

"The Steam Box's openness means that, as with a PC, hardware can be switched out for newer bits. It also means that users won't have to contend with a locked-down front-end or network such as Xbox Live."

 

SOLD! In Valve we trust :)

It's funny how people complain about one icon when on Xbox360 the entire UI (user interface) is nothing but ADS which you have to pay for and no one whines about it. :D

But at least the 360 adds are in the right section and change from time to time which can be useful.
