SingStar was a competitive music video game series for PlayStation consoles, developed by London Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. ~ Wikipedia
On 2019-10-31, Sony announced that all network services for the game series, i.e. the SingStar website and the related SingStore servers, would be shut down on 2020-01-31.
The following notice appeared on https://www.singstar.com/home.html[IA•Wcite•.today•MemWeb] starting on 2019-10-31:
After 15 incredible years, we have made the difficult decision to shut down the SingStore servers on 31 January 2020. After that date, you will still be able to enjoy your downloaded songs, but all online functionality and network features will no longer be available, and you will not be able to purchase any new songs from the SingStore. Any SingStar content you have shared to SingStar.com will be deleted. For PS3 users, please check that any digital purchases you have made and would like to keep have been downloaded onto your console before 31 January 2020. If you are a PS3 user and delete any content after that date, you won’t be able to redownload it.
Of course, any SingStar discs you have previously purchased will continue to work in offline mode, though you will not be able to obtain all trophies. You can read more about the digital store’s closure here: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/legal/gameservers
We’ve loved watching the community grow, and have lots of fond memories from working on SingStar. Your support over the years has meant the world.
Thank you and lots of love, The SingStar team
An ArchiveBot job was running for the site from 2020-01-21 and did not complete in time: job:e4r2gxg2u6kg41so7cxlqxdvj
A DPoS project was launched on 2020-01-22 but almost immediately crippled the servers. No further attempts were made after that.
