SingStore update coming

First update in April brings 17 new English songs and a bevy of European ones to the PlayStation 3.



The last two days have been good to SingStar fans. Yesterday Sony announced that a new PlayStation 3 game is coming, SingStar Volume 2, which will add a new Harmony Duet mode and revamped interface. Today the company revealed details of its scheduled bimonthly update to the SingStore, which will make 45 new songs available to purchase online by tomorrow.

The new tunes arriving on April 18 include tracks from Placebo, Duran Duran, Maximo Park, and Natasha Bedingfield, along with many European-language songs from France, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Spain, and Portugal.

When karaoke game SingStar PS3 was originally announced, Sony played up the possibilities of the SingStore, which was meant to let wannabe pop stars browse a huge database of songs and buy them for as little as 99p ($2).

However, it launched with 44 songs, with a mere 18 songs added in December and January. The end of January saw an almost-apology from SingStar studios and a promise of more regular updates, which was followed by 74 new songs in February and 67 in March.
