We've been listening to your feedback over the last few months and wanted to let you know that we will be adding 60+ songs to the North American SingStore over the next few months.
We'll be sure to keep you all posted as we begin rolling out new songs to the SingStore. In the meantime, here's a highlight of songs to appear in the coming weeks:
• UB40 - 'Red Red Wine'
• Billy Joel - 'We Didn't Start the Fire'
• Chumbawamba- 'Tubthumping'
• David Bowie- 'Let's Dance'
• Pink - 'Get the Party Started'
• Queen- 'The Show Must Go On'
• New Order- 'Blue Monday 88′
• Men at Work - 'Down Under'
• Starship - 'We Built This City'
Just in time for the holidays we will also be releasing a Christmas song pack to the SingStore in mid-December featuring popular Christmas carols from top artists such as Toni Braxton, Celine Dion and Paul McCartney. The pack will be available for $6.99 and will include the following tracks:
• Toni Braxton - 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Xmas'
• Babyface - 'Sleigh Ride'
• Shakin' Stevens - 'Merry Christmas'
• Paul McCartney - "Wonderful Christmastime'
• Celine Dion - 'Christmas Eve'
For all you SingStar fans with an extensive PS2 SingStar Library, a free game update will be made available by Christmas which will let you play your existing PS2 SingStar titles on your PS3. The new feature will work with all current PS3 systems and will not require a system software update. Just note, this feature is only compatible with SingStar discs.
Thank you all very much for your support and feedback. We're committed to improving the North American SingStore and will keep you posted with new releases and updates.
