    Nice. Hopefully this hits the US soon; although I’m somehow doubtful.

    That’s a really good idea actually.

    Download for free, pay for the songs that you want.

    Would make for a great karaoke distraction.

    Find it hard to believe Sony didn’t do this sooner, the soical aspect of Singstar is very compelling, if your into that stuff.

    It’s a good idea, but they’ve fucked up on the icon placement. Shove it in at the top of the Game tab and make it unremovable, unmovable and unhidable.

    Not a good move. It has me wondering how many other unmovable ads for services and products I don’t want they’re going to put between me and my games in a years time. Beginning to sound like the Xbox dash. Yuck.
