    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 Sonyís offical answer?
    Basically saying ďItís 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:

    Youíre welcome.
    Oh, and:

    Well, youíll 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.

    Wow - what a mansion!

    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.

    Somewhere out there, a neurotic chicken wants to cross the road but is paralyzed by the knowledge that everyone will question his motives

    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.
