PS3 patch to play PS2 SingStar songs

18 Replies 5,344 Views Created 28-09-2008

Any body got any idea when the patch for the PS3 will be released that will allow me to play my old PS2 SingStar songs on my 80GB PS3?

 

Or is this something that's going to come with SingStar 3? If so, any ideas on a release data for that?

 

Cheers

 

Dan

As I understand it, the update to allow SingStar PS3 to play songs from PS2 SingStar discs will be done via a firmware update to console itself. No clue as to when that will be though.

They have said it will be a patch before xmas. They also said Bluetooth mics and 300+ tracks at launch including the whole ps2 back catalogue on singstore so this might not happen!

Due to neglect of Singstore, I'm thinking bout picking up one or two singstar discs when i go to Canada for a trip later this month.

But I wanna know for real if this patch is coming or not...

btw...does the PS2 Singstar discs work on PS3 (with backwards compatibility) by themselves? with the PS3 mics?
Or is this patch required to play the ps2 discs?

The ps2 discs do indeed work in the 60G ps3 already.  Enjoy.

 

The update will allow them to work within the ps3 singstar interface.

 

The mics are identical.

I have been told that the PS2 discs are still region specific even when played on the PS3.  So you may have to be carefull if you are picking up foreign discs.  Can anyone confirm this is the case?

Anybody know if the new SingStar 3 allows you to use your old PS2 SingStar games, or is that coming with a future firmware upgrade?

 

How long should i wait before selling my old PS2 and SingStar games??? Or should i hang on to them?

SingStar Vol. 3 allows you to swap between PS3 SingStars, but PS2 SingStars doesn't work.

Hopefully there will be game or firmware update soon to allow that.

the patch has not yet been released. and it is still to come, I hope quite soon. I think it very messed up by SONY not to announce a delay or anything else. The told us the patch would be included in the latest SingStar Vol. 3 Disc and also a download would be available. Please note I use a German account. and here it is NOT available, please tell if it is to download in the UK!!!! thx

It would be useful to learn about the current state of play on this.

If the songs from earlier editions aren't being forwarded on to the Singstore, and the older generation of discs aren't supported by PS3, then that's a lot of songs that just can't be sung.

 

I was surprised to learn good news about the wireless mics today, so hopefully, news will come through about this compatibility barrier being broken through, too.

No, actually. I don't know anything about that, I'm afraid. I was just pleased to see that the wireless mics were on the way, now. Something they said they would do, and it'll soon be available. :smileyhappy:

 

More on-topic though, is this, the latest update on the Playstation.blog. You can see it references a title patch to allow PS2 Singstar discs to be played on PS3, without needing a firmware update, which will be available before Christmas! The post was made around 10 mins ago. It's said to work with all PS3s, and require no firmware update. Let's hope it'll be a similar story for EU players.

Singstar was first available here, the development studio is local, so I don't see why it shouldn't be, really.

I'm glad I trusted my instincts on this. I've already got 7 PS2 Singstar discs and as soon as I heard about this patch I was tempted to rush out and go and buy the rest to complete the collection. However, having been 'stung' before by Singstar with the wireless microphone debacle (still waiting over a year on) I decided to wait until the patch was released. Now, we've been promised 'before Christmas' and the patch was not released today, which leaves only one more 'standard' release date for Singstar updates, that being next Thursday 18th December, unless of course this is going to be released on a 'none standard' day.

 

Does anybody have any news at all on this? Especially Sony or London Studios? It would be great even if we were just told it's delayed, but 'no news' is never 'good news' as we've all found out with Sony!!

I have the full singstar collection, but my ps2 is getting a bit flaky through age, so I decided to upgrade to a ps3 which would let me play the old discs on. I only purchased the ps3 after checking on various websites that this was a viable option, as long as I bought a ps3 version of singstar too, I set it up today only to find that it doesn't work.

 

I have an 80g ps3, but feel like I've just been conned.

 

Is there a fix or patch or something that would make this work?

1) sign-in to make sure you're online so any patches/updates are downloaded/installed

 

2) insert SingStar PS3 disc

 

3) when you get to the carousel (where you choose a song to play), press the SELECT button

 

4) remove SingStar PS3 disc

 

5) insert a SingStar PS2 disc

 

Provided your console, PS3 disc and PS2 discs were all bought in the same country - it should work.
