Festive greetings, everybody in SingStar/DanceStar Party land!
Not sure where this year has gone but here we are with the last SingStore update of 2011. Don't be sad though, because we'll be back with more in January and there MIGHT even be a special surprise release for you before the year is out.
I'll have another word with the big bearded man in the red and white coat. Keep your eyes and ears peeled, my friends! (Hint: Following us on @SingStarHQ is probably your best bet)
On to the update. As you can see below we only have one real Christmas song for you this year thanks to Coldplay but I am hoping that the seven Song Packs more than make up for that. Five of them are brand-spanking new and exclusive, and we put together two Essentials packs just for you, showcasing the best in the SingStore with '80s Part 3' and 'The Best Of The Noughties,' so you don't have to go looking for it.
We've got new Elton John, Billy Idol, Take That 3 and Def Leppard Song Packs plus 'Mosh It Up!', a compilation of tracks you'll love if you like it a bit heavier. Please be careful with the furniture when moshing inside. We don't want injured SingStar players on our conscience!
Other songs in the update include great tracks by Bob Dylan, some more Spice Girls and the amaaazing 'Black Velvet' by Alannah Myles.
Also released this week on the PlayStation store are DanceStar Party Mixes 4 & 5. Yep, that's eight more tracks for you to download. Just making sure your party doesn't have to stop this festive season. Enjoy.
So, that's me done on here for this year. Have a great holiday season, eat, drink, be merry and make sure you greet 2012 with a bit of a sing and a dance.

Seems that I will not be able to buy them.
When I start Singstar, it tells me an update is needed (5.13) then I click OK and a few seconds later PS3 crashes and restart.

The Song Packs don't make up for only one Xmas song at all! And that one christmas song isn't really well known or singable now (it's not a classic), I was hoping for All I Want For Christmas Is You or Fairytale Of New York but I guess that's too high an expectation considering it's Singstar.
I really hope 2012 will be a better year for Singstar - we'll get better updates and they'd actually listen to our song suggestions. This year has been very downhill with just one Singstar disc out and only like 6 songs per update with only one being a 21st century one sometimes.
But still Singstar please don't lose heart with the annoyed people commenting on the updates - it doesn't mean we don't like Singstar its just that we dont like the way Studio Londons treating it now with the new baby DanceStar Party. Please please don't kill off Singstar - its felt like you've been trying to do that this year!

have been dissapointed with singstar last year not many top 10 songs in updates BUT saved the day with the adele update well done, pity about the take that if got the disc had all but 1 song. dance etc will be gone year or 2 at best it looks good on tele but in reality most peoples rooms not big enough to have more tham 2 people doing it, mostly self conscious to do more than 20 mins before turn off all i can say is xfactor and bgt thats the market to hit upto date songs for all the want to be contestants to practice on
