I'm glad Sony realizes how important games like Buzz! & Singstar are. Now if only they would actually start SUPOORTING Singstar in North America.
The bi-weekly updates are often delayed (or completely omitted) and the song selection is very poor (Mostly UK-centric artists) And NO QUEEN pack for NA, while the UK got it.

I love Sony's more casual/party games, but damnit make me want to play them! Rock Band and Guitar Hero are whoopin Singstars butt in the DLC area.

Sony can say whatever they like - the sales on Buzz, SingStar etc are absolutely dreadful. They've fallen behind according to the consumer - who's dollars actually count.

not sure what you mean about SinStar and Buzz selling dreadfully. the PS3 versions are selling far better at stores than the PS2 versions ever have. the online option makes them far more appealing

Singstar is a dying franchise from what I can tell. Sony haven't delivered on the 1 next gen feature most people wanted which was wireless mics. Also the DLC for Singstar is 50% more expensive per song then last gen for no good reason. The online store is cheaper for Sony removing the need to duplicate and distribute discs, but the songs are more expensive.

Buzz for PS3 is also jipped compared to the much better PS2 versions. Luckily the new wireless buzzers work with the older games.

@ Mick, the songs are more expensive due to the fact you are getting not only audio but the video as well. I didn't understand at first either until I read up on it.
