I was looking forward to this update but I have to say that none of these songs really appeal to me, maybe I will have a listen to the ones Im not sure of before deciding whether to buy any or not.

Just the 7 English tracks?
Not what we were hoping for and pretty average tracks too (in my opinion). Guess things will pick up once it gets released in America.
Thanks for letting us know though.

Hmmm, seven new english tracks... prepare for some more moaning from people chomping at the bit for new songs. It seems to me that there is an easy way of solving all the criticism (some of it very unfair) at Sony and London studios...
It involves this: Those of us with 60G backwards compatible PS3s who are long standing singstar fans already own a PS2 disc or three. We're NEVER going to spend the money to purchase our favourite songs again when we can just wap in the discs. (No matter how drunk we are..) HOWEVER - If there was some way of including in an update a way of allowing backward compatible PS3s to recognise the old PS2 discs at the singstar menu page then Sony would be killing three birds with one stone:
1, They wouldn't be bogged down in the legal wrangles over songs already in the singstar world and could concentrate on previously unreleased ones.
2, Criticism of the lack of songs in the singstar library would be answered (with aplomb!)
3, Sales of the PS2 discs would grow, meaning that stock could be sold off without the need for price cuts etc.

Now surely that's doable in an update? Along with the video delay to sort out those of us with mic lag..... Singstar patched and with a big library of songs is all that people want in my opinion...

I'm sorry, but that update is just pathetic. I hope that this isn't the shape of things to come, as Singstar will die a quick death.

15 songs? Jesus Christ. Oh no wait, in reality it's only 7 for UK owners.

That'll bring the grand total to a whopping 84! Nearly 100!

You may aswell just pack up the SingStar project right now, you know, and we know, you've cocked up somewhere.

But still well done on at least getting an update out to us, and keeping us notified about it. An improvement to say the least.

And for those who think I'm being completely harsh **** over the matter, then so be it. If people makes promises and bold statements, I expect them to keep them. If we don't get promised 'regular updates' for 3/4 weeks, and then get a measly 7 new songs, I'm not going to be happy. It's their job to get the songs on the SingStore, fair enough they are doing that, but 7 new songs?! Just **** off.

I brought my PS3 back on release for £425, and I'm still loyal to Sony, only just, but I am. I've spent a lot of money on the console, and with all the delays, false promises, false advertising and general ******** which has come from Sony's backside, don't expect me to be friendly towards the company who are very unproffesional at the moment.

Flame me, I don't care.

That really is very poor, but at least it won't be costing me any money that week on new Singstar songs which is a bonus!!

Mmmmm, I wonder what DLC will be available on Rockband? :gr8:

Sony's circling the drain with singstar now me thinks. 7 3rd rate songs..... that's their response to everyone's disappointment in the singstore so far??????
shows what they think of their customer base....Give them what we promised?? nah! give them just enough tripe to say we're trying our best. if this is your best, then I suggest you take some classes in rope tieing and find yourselves a nice quite room and do us all a favour.
To think a company like SONY can't get licensing rights to their own artists and songs.......
Give up, you can't recover from this and if you do, It'll be too late for me.
I've been holding off to have a singstar party for almost a year since it was meant to be released....then 2 months since it was meant to be updated, and had nothing but dissapointment.
So FU sony, and your london studios fat friend.

Oh my, without words. I really thought that the Singstore is something that keeps this game alive for a reasonable time frame. But to be honest, i am not even interested in new songs or the video community any more. The new videos are just variants of the same old stuff and the videos in the "best videos"-category aren't changing. Also, some online multiplayer game modes are really missing. There is so much wasted potential in this game that it really hurts to see what Sony makes of it. I am just wondering whether they really didn't think this thing through when they planned and designed the game, whether they really don't know how to make this game right for next-gen, or whether they just released it early for cash knowing that it will be a half-baked thing.

World beaters... no, but at least the English selection is a bit more diverse than the last upgrade. Wonder why we didn't get 3 tunes from any of these artists?

You appear to have made a mistake, calling something spewed out by UB40 a "song". ;)

I have to agree with you, they need to do something with the uploaded stuff. Perhaps keep the top 5 from each month and add them to a seperate "Top 5" gallery or something and then reset it all again for the next month, so as to get new video's etc appearing on the "Highest Rated".

I was going to delete my Wookie vid but after reading all the positve comments I thought I'd leave it there. Just waiting for more songs for Chewy to make another appearance.

EDIT: Also, why the hell havn't we got Daft Punk, you just know it's party time when Daft Punk is playing. :gr8: Come on Sony/London Studio, give us Daft Punk.

If it really is the uploading of videos that causing the licensing issues why don't they just disable that feature on most new videos. I'm sure people would rather have more new songs that they can't upload than say 3/5 a month that they can. Also we really need some more modern music fast. What ever happened to getting all the current chart music in weekly update along the ways... doesn't seem very likely at this rate. I can honestly say I'll be moving to Rock Band when its released and spending my money on their weekly DLC unless the Sing Star service gets updated in a big way.

I remember an interview where Paulina Bozek said that. I can't ever see that happening now to be honest. It seems that despite the big claims, Singstar has had to be scaled down dramatically.
