PS3 patch to play PS2 SingStar songs

18 Replies 5,225 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

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!

Re: PS3 patch to play PS2 SingStar songs

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.

Re: PS3 patch to play PS2 SingStar songs

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?
