All Your Singing Dreams Are Dead
 

This was a big week in videogame releases. Not only did the Wii Fit come out, but so did Singstar for the PS3. Now I have never played these games, but I was always curious. There are 4 of them on the PS2, and they are basically karaoke games. They are also huge hits.

However for the PS3, thanks to the hard drive, they really up’d the ante from what I’ve read. You can save all your performances, and if you have the webcam for the system then you can save the videos and photos of your performances. It doesn’t end there, you have an online section of the game where you can upload your performances and photos and whatever to your own Singstar Profile (think Myspace, Facebook, etc). Oh and it gets even better, there is an online store to purchase new songs as they are released. Given Sony has a huge music division, this should lead to tons of songs to expand the game . . . forever? Alas, right now there is no Madonna! I hope they’ll work something out to add her as she’s on an opposing label, along with Alanis dammit!

Well I decided to take the plunge and get this game. I know I can’t sing, but I like to sing in the comfort and privacy of my own home. Let me tell you it is the most fun I’ve had in a long time! It’s really not so much a game, but a karaoke machine and online social network. If you fancy yourself a singer, get this game! If you know you can’t sing, do it anyway and don’t care, get it! Seriously, this game is fun fun fun. Alone it is fun, I cannot yet imagine how much fun it would be to play with friends!

As of yet I have not uploaded anything to my profile, I’m not brave enough yet! If you get the game, leave a contact or contact me about adding each others as friends.

Did you get yours for the PS2 or the PS3? Can you be friends if you have different PS versions? I was looking at the Wii Fit today and I might break down and buy it…so thanks for the tip about getting a mat if you have hardwood floors:)

I’m not sure if the PS2 versions have the online component, I’m thinking they don’t. I got the PS3 version.

We have the PS3, but I was looking at the different versions and I really like the songs on the PS2 one better! Taylor wants me to get for her so I probably will break down and get it. Anyway when I do get it I will let you know. Just keep in mind that I am not the greatest singer:)

You can actually purchase new songs for the PS3 version. I do like some of the songs on the old PS2 version myself and am hoping eventually they’ll simply release them for download to PS3.

Before I ask you this, please keep in mimd that I’m not a “gamer” and that I’m a blonde:) I can’t, for the fricking life of me, figure out how to add you as a friend. I got your email with the info, but apparently I (and the hubby) are too idiotic to figure it out. Is there some trick to it?
