Three New Singstar Titles
The popular Singstar line continues with an impressive series of releases for owners of the Playstation 2 and Playstation 3 systems. For those unfamiliar with the games, the successful series is a high tech form of Karaoke that combines the hottest modern songs with video of the stars performing their top hits. Instead of having to sing along to generic backgrounds, players can now sing along to the actual music videos of the stars as well as be scored on details ranging from pitch, rhythm, and tone.
A nice feature of the series is the ability to record your performances using the Eye Toy camera which is a great way to capture those moments at parties.
The three new releases are Singstar Legends which features an impressive array of hits from artists including The Police, The Beach Boys, Johnny Cash, Nirvana and many more.
Singstar Country continues the winning success by offering hits from the top country artists including Alan Jackson, Gretchen Wilson, and Jessica Simpson.
Branching out for the PS 3 there is Sing Star Volume 2 which offers hits from The Killers, Eminem and Gorillaz to name but a few. A great feature of the set is the ability to share your performances online in the Playstation community or to increase your song collections by purchasing songs online from the Singstore.
Titles are available as standalone sets or with microphones, and you will want to note that PS 2 Microphones do not work with the PS 3 system and vice versa, but PS 3 owners will be able to play the stand-alone versions of the games.
With the holidays coming up, Singstar offers a highly enjoyable way to celebrate and countless hours of fun for everyone.
