There is a lot of add ons for PS3 CFW that help removing Singstar, but I like PSN, and would not risk to be banned just for this.

But this game annoy me, and apart from petition (which obviously led to nothing), I didn't see anything to remove singstar.

Is there any legal way to remove at least the icon of Singstar from the XMB?

  • Doubtful but this is my own speculation since I do not work for Sony. But the same thing with the Netflix icon on the movies section. I have to skip over it every time I want to use other video services. Someone likely paid a bit of money to get that icon to always be there as a form of advertising.

  • Get an import PlayStation 3 from somewhere outside of Europe? Not really practical, but probably the only the solution that doesn't require hacking your PS3.

  • I wouldn't mind getting rid of it too, it's practically useless cause songs like Black★Rocker Shooter or SOMEONE ELSE aren't in it's listing.

  • @James: I believe it s more "Hey look, even barebone PS3 have Netflix and a game free", I don t care about Netflix, but Singstar is annoying.

  • @RossRidge: It would be a solution if I wasn t short of money. And buying a PS3 because there is one icon too much seems... excessive.

Not an ideal fix, and probably less legal than desired, but the Singstar icon is not present in the PS3 XMB when used with a non-"European" PSN account which is easy to create under a new Profile using an American address during signup.

As I said, not ideal as you are creating a whole new PSN ID just to avoid seeing the Singstar "ad" under that profile only.
