Sony has announced plans that it will launch a new section on the SingStore for Singstar called ‘SingStar Extras’.
The service will allow for updates to be distributed for the SingStar games, both of which could be free and paid-for.
In an interview with Eurogamer, the series director Dave Ranyard revealed that the series will be enhanced in the future.
“I’m happy to say we’ll look at new gameplay modes… The Store as well – as far as I’m concerned that can benefit from feature development just like anything else, so as content increases we may well work on the storefront,” he told Eurogamer.
“We do have a new section to the storefront coming called SingStar Extras where you can buy, or get for free, other things than just songs, so that’s where you might buy features in the future, or you might get the features for free. So we are looking at the storefront in that way. Basically, the Store’s going to evolve as it gets bigger, and it is getting bigger by the day.”
SingStar has been criticised for its lack of decent music on the download store, despite competition from Microsoft’s Lips in recent months. Only last week were the wireless microphones for the game released, many years after originally being developed.
