Sony has released its usual update on what delights will grace the US PlayStation Store in this week’s update.
Wed, Aug 24, 2011 | 01:18 BST
The big news in this week’s US PS Store update is the first title of Sony’s PSN PLAY scheme – Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Online Edition – but come through for plenty of other goodies including some beta for a little shooter, maybe you’ve heard of it.

Day one is rounding up at GameCom and if you missed out on any of it, we’ve got you covered.
It’s all here in one lovely post. From Peter Moore sporting shorts and chatting on stage with Katarina Vitt, to Ray Muzyka not giving us a Mass Effect 2 date – that was the EA side.
From the day purchase of a purple Hannah Montana PSP 3000 to Kaz’s mega-fucking-ton but anticlimactic announcements of PS3 Slim and it’s pretty price – Sony’s all right here as well.
Hit the links and see for yourself.

More mediocrity has been added to the US SingStar Store.
A five-song pack from Britney Spears will run you $6.99 and includes:
(You Drive Me) Crazy, Born To Make You Happy, I Love Rock n’ Roll, Oops! I Did It Again, and Stronger.
In total, 18 other songs have been added, but the PS blog felt these were the only ones worth mentioning:
- MGMT – Youth
- Vanilla Ice – Ice Ice Baby
- Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder – Ebony & Ivory
- Dizzee Rascal feat. Calvin Harris – Dance Wiv Me
Sony says loads more is coming for SingStar in the coming months.
We can’t wait.

Bit late on this. We apologise. Sony’s confirmed SingStar PS3′s going to get wireless microphones by way of the game’s MySpace page.
They’re out next year, apparently.

According to this GI story, former creative services manager Dave Ranyard is to assume control of the SingStar franchise at Sony London.
The role was vacated when long-time caretaker Paulina Bozek left for Atari earlier this year.

SCEE’s announced that two Queen packs are to be available for download on the SingStore tomorrow.
Each one contains five tracks and will cost £4.49.
Full details after the link.

This Hexus report is rumouring that Sony’s working on a SingStar game based on classic musicals, named, aptly enough, Singstar: Hits from the Musicals.
Apparently, the following tracks are to be included:
- Bad Guys – Bugsy Malone
- Can You Feel the Love Tonight? – The Lion King
- If I Were a Rich Man – Fiddler on the Roof
- Over the Rainbow – Wizard of Oz
This is actually cool. Singing If I Were a Rich Man is approximately 40,000 times more preferable than scratching along with Boyzone. We’re not 12. We’re real men.
More on this soon, hopefully.

Here we go. Nintendo just delivered a “news-light” press conference at E3, clearing the way for what we hope will be a “fireworks-heavy,” force 10 of a showing from Sony. Microsoft blew the internet up last night with a line-up topped off with a gigaton FFXIII announcement, and all eyes are now on PlayStation 3 and its coming year to deliver the goods.
Home, a price cut, new hardware, the Ueda game, Tears of Blood, God of War, Resistance 2, Killzone 2: let’s go Sony. Give us everything you’ve got. Let’s see Kaz cry with excitement. Let’s see Harrison-replacement Shuhei Yoshida rip the roof off. Let’s see fucking something, anyway.
The IGN feed’s holding up very well. All details here.

Full list of new songs after the break. You can’t beat a bit of Judas Priest.

This IGN story‘s dated the Australian version of SingStar Vol. 2 as June 19.
The new disc-based version of the karaoke game will feature a new duet mode and 20 new tracks.
We just asked SCEE if the date applied to Europe as well, and were told that there’s been no announcement as yet.

The European SingStore’s getting an update today, according to ThreeSpeech. It’s a stunner. We’ve never heard of any of the European stuff so we have no idea if it’s any good or not, but the English stuff looks OK. Assuming you have to sing to music instead of just, like, listening to it. Weirdos.
List after the link.

The site will allow internet users to see uploaded videos from the game. Apparently SingStar players will be able to say whether or not they want their videos to be viewed by the general public or held within the current, PS3-only system.
More through the link.

Kaz is a nice chap. He only flew in to the UK this morning for the SCEE PlayStation Day in London, but he was still the consummate, media-trained super-exec we know and love when we tracked him down on the O2 showfloor. Hit the link for the SCE president’s thoughts on Europe, “changes” to E3, Grand Theft Auto and selling PS3 as a games machine.
We also asked him what keeps him awake at night. See if you can guess the answer.
