    Anyone else got Singstar ad below your disc and above your downloads on your game menu since the update?

    Everybody does, it's a free to play app now, so long as you buy some stuff.

    Bizarrely , you can't delete it, nor can you stick it in a folder and if you don't have a disc in, the ps3 boots straight to that icon. Something which has pissed off a great deal of users.

    Express your displeasure here.

    The fact i can't hide it or even delete it is a minor nuisance. It staying at the top of my games list is also a nuisance. I'm not against them making singstar "free to play" but forcing everyone to have it displayed at the top of the games list is a bit much really.

    Have you read some of the comments by Nina on that blog? I dont understand how she is employed. If I spoke to my firms customers like she has I would be out the door.

    Example question:
    So this is Sony’s offical answer?
    Basically saying “It’s our system so we can force on you what we want, Then post arogant comments (as I see it) to justify the reason.
    You Mizz Scherer have jsut made my mind up for next gen.
    Her answer:

    You’re welcome.
    Oh, and:

    Well, you’ll have to whine for a looong while then, I guess.
    I think her attempt at humour was way off the mark.

    They get a completely unreasonable amount of shit on there to be fair.

    Fair enough, but that comes with being in the front lines of customer service.

    So even if I downliad something else, the Singstar app stays at the top? Not something worth throthing at the mouth over, but still very annoying.

    Yeah. It's gonna bug me forever, and thinking about that is really bugging me right now. :(

    Should've stashed it in the Music tab. I would've noticed it then.

    @elvenscroll Well, if it helps, she has since apologised if anyone was offended...

    Fair play to her to be honest. It does seem a bit ridiculous the amount of complaints there are about an icon.

    It's just one Icon, It's astonishing the complaints it's getting.

    @HiddenAway

    Yeah, I noticed that. Fair play to that.

    I don't think it's the app itself that is the annoyance, it's the location of it.

    I love Singstar too. In fact, Singstar was a very large part of the reason my wife and I decided to purchase a PS3. We'd had endless fun with the series on PS2 and wanted to continue to do so.

    I'm very happy to have the new Singstar app but I can understand why many are annoyed. I don't like first-person shooters, so I'd probably be slightly miffed if I had a Call of Duty game permanently glued to my XMB.

    Not miffed enough to viciously abuse a poor Sony blogger though.

    I just turned on my PS3 to install the upgrade and it came back up with this giant BLUE background and a new icon.

    The first thing I thought was "Jesus. How drunk was I last weekend?" and tried to triangle it for info. That didn't work so I just said "What the fuck?" out loud a few times, walked around in tiny confused circles holding the controller and logged in here.

    It's annoying me already. It's so bloody BLUE. It certainly shouldn't be the default. I don't ever plan on playing the game so it would be much nicer if I could hide it. I'll have stern words about this with Rodger Sony if I ever meet him.

    I NEVER considered hacking my PS3 but whichever happens first, this shit gone, or a hack that works on my current firmware (I've turned auto updates off and deactivated autopay on PS+) I will not be forced to look at some garbage all over my console that I've ZERO interest in.

    Fuck you Sony.
