How come PS3 SingStar is so far behind PS2?

I've been playing SingStar on PS3 for a while now, and have downloaded quite a few new songs. My question is, how come new discs keep getting released for the PS2, without that content appearing simultaneously in the SingStore, and in that respect, why does the SingStore seem so far behind compared to the content on the PS2 discs? I realise there's probably different licensing issues and that sort of thing involved, but it's really frustrating to see all these songs (and a lot of recent hits at that) available for an older platform. It feels like I'm being penalised after I spent nearly $700 on my PS3. I'm assuming there's issues involved that I'm unaware of...?

You mean about licensing issues? If that's the case, why doesn't Sony wait until they've got a decent amount of songs ready for the SingStore before the releasing the PS2 disc?

Universal music does not like digital distribution so the songs from them won't be appearing on the store anytime soon

Yes, I have heard that about Universal.

 

Another question then: what does a SingStore download actually consist of? I mean, I'm currently thinking that it's not just a high quality .avi or .mpeg video clip of a song, but that it's some special format developed specifically for the game that embeds all the lyrics and pitch info in the file so all that info appears on-screen, as well as some sort of DRM that prevents it being played outside the game. If that's correct, then what do record labels have to worry about?

 

If I'm wrong, I'd love someone to correct me as I'm interested to know what's going on behind the scenes with SingStar songs.

because the PS2 version print money. Anyway you do know that SingStar PS3 will soon have a freature where you can "rip" the songs from the PS2 disk and play them on the PS3 version of sing star right?

I thought that feature was just going to let you play PS2 SingStar discs on the PS3? If you can rip the songs on to your SingStore library, then that'll be awesome! Can you point me in the direction of any more info about that feature at all?

At the moment only the disc swapping feature is what you'll get.

As MTV says, dont be fooled...

Here's hoping the ps2 integration actually works across the board with ps3's, i have a library of 6 ps2 singstars and I'm feeling like they're kinda going to waste now.

If they made it so you can plant the ps2 singstar cd's onto the ps3 hard drive, I would buy ps2 versions, dont fancy the disc swapping option at all.

Why not? You are essentially doing the same thing.

Well, no you wouldn't be doing the same thing. You would be swapping discs. I think what Ravage05 is saying is that it would be cool if you could copy all the PS2 songs onto your PS3 hard drive and access them with all your other songs in the SingStar carousel. Sony would never do that though, because it'd mean a decrease in PS2 disc sale (ppl buying them then trading after they've ripped the songs).

In an ideal world it would be like Rock Band 2 where you pay a one off transfer/licensing fee for a code to transfer the tracks across... who knows.. It might come with Singstar Vol.7 (PS3).. I honestly never thought the carasoul of PS2 discs would ever happen..
