Karaoke fans rejoice! Sony finally revealed information on the upcoming PS3 version of SingStar. The game will ship with 30 licensed tracks and music videos, with new downloadable tracks being released monthly starting in June. And not only will there be new songs every month, but the back catalog from previous installments of SingStar on the PS2 will be made available as well.
And for those of you who insist on recording yourselves singing “Barbie Girl” in a tube top while sucking a lolli, your in luck because SingStar is going to encourage all of it’s players to come together as a community and share your love for karaoke. Users will be able to create an online profile in which they can record their ground-breaking performance, share it online, and vote for the best singers.
Right now my only concern with this title is how much Sony will charge for the additional downloadable content. The recent uproar concerning the price of Guitar Hero II’s DLC has now made me wiser that music licenses cost some serious cash. If Sony can keep the price down to something that’s affordable, then SingStar could very well be the perfect party game that will bring both gamer and non-gamers together.
