SCEE has confirmed that a new patch is in the works for SingStar, after some massive bugs for the game were found following the release of update 4.2.
“As soon as we were aware of these issues, the senior SingStar development team came together and have been working flat out to fix these issues with the aim of getting a patch out as soon as possible,” said SingStar director Dave Ranyard, speaking on the EU PS Blog.
“Due to the severity of these bugs there was a very real possibility of a “quick fix” actually making these problems worse and that is why we have opted instead for a very thorough development and QA test process to ensure that the problems that you are experiencing are resolved.”
However, Ranyard did promise that the soonest we would see a patch is early December.
Meanwhile, GAF has uncovered evidence that a track pack involving Sir Paul McCartney is on the way. This could tie in with the upcoming release of his live DVD/CD “Good Evening New York City”.
Then again, if you don’t care for the solo stuff, and have Beatles: Rock Band, buy Sgt. Pepper tomorrow.

Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that if they were still alive today, his Beatles bandmates John Lennon and George Harrison would have approved of The Beatles: Rock Band concept, also stating they would have been “amused” about it.
“I think they would have been amused. I think they would have seen the point of it,” said McCartney, speaking in an interview with Observer Music Magazine with Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono, widows of George and John.
Ono said: “[John] would have been excited about the Rock Band concept, and very happy with how the music and the visuals of the Beatles were represented.”
Harrison further said: “I hate to say, but I know I’m [George's] biggest fan and biggest critic, and I’m happy with it. I think they did a great job, and if I didn’t like it I would feel very uncomfortable.”
There is more info on the game’s development and how Harmonix didn’t have it easy to get the approval of Ono, Harrison, McCartney and Ringo Starr through the link.
Game’s out on Wednesday for PS3, PS2, 360 and Wii. Everyone loves it.
