SPG is stating that SingStar will be making its debut in PAL territories on July 25, 2007. The karaoke style game will be availabe in two versions: the standalone going for 30.95 Euros and the package including microphones for 61.95 Euros.
:(. I really wanted this game.
This game is as big as Guitar Hero is in the States, so many versions have been released on PS2 over in Europe, a potential system mover for sure.
yea expect to see sales go up in europe and australia late july
...appeals to the casual gamer. The price of the PS3 does not. If the PS3 was 40% cheaper then this would shift units but as it stands, its unlikely to.
right then, gotta get a PS3 before then......
Do any of you want a slightly used kidney?
Only kidding, Mrs Tonsoffun loves this game, so it is a great excuse to buy one.
The online and youtube like features are going to kill...I think this will be the first SingStar to really take off in the US due to this when it is combined with a webcam or PLAYSTATION Eye
yah, one of the things that killed the US version is the narrow selection of songs. they put stuff like Britney Spears in there..alot of ppl hate..but there is always a crowd that likes it..same goes for the other songs, US loves to bash artists and politicians.
This is somewhat different when compare to Asian artists, there is alot less bashing and when a good canto/mandarin pop song comes out, 90% of the people will listen to it and agreed on it.
I hope there is a "universal" version of Sing Star, because I would love to have some Canto pop on it, however I think due to copy right lawas this is unlikily..or maybe there are some sort of restriction.
But all in all, the downloadable list of songs ensures that there will be no further version of SingStars and that it should have songs to suit everyone's taste! Great idea.
I hope they are wireless microphones. That I think would be sweet. I hope this does well over in Europe. Because I played the Pop version for the PS2 in North America and I thought it was fun. So hearing all that is planned for the PS3 version really sounds great. So I hope it comes out soon after it comes out in Europe.
u think they are pissed?
This title will shift a couple hundred thousand or a million or two. My kids loved the PS2 version.
...that it will be a system seller if the PS3 was much, much cheaper. I doubt this will help sell a couple of million units even if they gave it away for free with each unit sold.
just need sometime, anyway, there will be definately some people, who will buy ps3 for this game and blu-ray player feautures even for 600 euros. =)
i dont think they should release this yet, they should wait until ps3 becomes more mainstream first. most people with ps3 are the more hardcore gamers, not casual. but oh well, at least its another game coming out.
28/06/07- PS3 day!
They have to start sometime. This will dovetail into PLAYSTATION Eye sales and HOME integration and due to the downloadable content and SingStore will have much longer legs than a 'normal' release. I think the buzz will be worth the lower initial sales due to install base.
More ugly talentless people broadcasting their fugly mugs on the internet... I can't wait!!! :-/ Why is this a good idea again?
Get a karaoke machine... it's a better value, and people don't have to be forced to look at and listen to you.
