If the song is available on PlayStation 4 you can download it again at no extra cost. Head to the ‘Transfer My Songs’ section in the Play SingStar > Purchase History section in-game and you’ll find all songs that are available for free re-download. Simply add to your cart and re-download again at no extra cost on your PlayStation 4. More songs may become available for transfer, so make sure you keep checking back in this area after every SingStore update.
If the song is available on both platforms, you will be able to play the same on either console.
All of your favourite shared moments singing with your friends will be available and sharable on the PlayStation 4 community, allowing you to connect and share all of those hilarious videos and irreverent pics instantly. SingStar Clubs will not be part of the new community and media will not be copied over.
One of the appealing aspects of the online social functionality of SingStar is that you decide and are in control of what, when and which content is shared on Facebook® or Twitter.
We see this feature as the perfect complement to SingStar and are working towards supporting functionality with further details scheduled to be revealed later this year.
The disc is designed to be quick and simple so you can start the party straight away. As with any other disc based game you will need to insert the disc to play the content.
PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 discs are not backwards compatible with PlayStation 4 due to the PlayStation 4 console not being able to read PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 disc formats. The disc swap feature still exists on PlayStation 3 only.
SingStar is compatible on Android and iOS phones and tablets (click here ) to learn how to pair your mobile device). Just download the app and begin searching the music catalogue to purchase, share or cue up a song to sing. As with other dual function tasks, the app will continue to work even when a call or text is incoming. You will have the option to answer the call or continue singing. If you answer the call, the game will automatically pause after five seconds. Once you end the call you can return to the app and resume playing from where you left off. If you ignore or cancel the call you can continue to sing with no further interruption.
Yes, most 3rd party mics will work. For the most instant and interactive experience, the free microphone app download is by far the simplest and most readily available option.
No, it has to be one or the other due to technology restrictions.
The data used travels across the local Wi-Fi network so the console and your phone will have used the same connection for it to work.
We recommend the following:
For best results hold your phone approximately 10cm away from your mouth and sing directly into your device’s microphone.
There may on occasion be a slight delay in sound of personal singing performance coming through the TV speakers/external speakers when using the app as a microphone. There is a simple solution to this in that players can turn down the volume of the mic in the game by pressing down on the DS4 D-Pad. There may be other options for reducing the latency. Set the TV to game mode instead of movie mode (or similar). Also, if there is additional AV equipment installed e.g. an AV amp, sound bar or wireless speakers which can introduce latency into the system.
As with any Wi-Fi enabled experience the quality of the network connection is a consideration, as is the underlying voice processing technology used in current smart devices. The SingStar Mic app has therefore been optimised to ensure maximum compatibility with the highest number of handsets currently available. We will however continue to optimise the app performance in future game and app updates.
