Singstar going free-to-play *update*

Update: Sony's just confirmed that the entire Singstar experience will indeed be going free to play, with the full downloading being made available soon, but that's not all.

According to a post on the PS Blog, "There will be even more exciting news to come around this next week."

What could it be?

Original: Sony's wonderful PlayStation karaoke title, Singstar, could be going free-to-play.

If you try accessing the Singstar viewer on PS3, you'll be greeted with a message suggesting that soon, you'll be able to download the game and get singing.

"The complete SingStar experience will be available as a free download very soon!" says the screen,

If Singstar does go free-to-play then it's a fantastic idea, likely meaning that you'll be given a set amount of songs and will have to play for any others that you want to download. Obviously if you already own the game and have downloaded songs then this shouldn't affect you. Although perhaps there will be some sort of incentive for loyal fans.

Another thing to note is that you will need a mic.

Expect an announcement surrounding this next week.

I think I still have an old microphone from guitar hero. Wouldn't mind dusting it off and getting in the groove! hahaha.

I wish that the xbox looked at the incentives that the PS3 offers and got their asses into gear. The Xbox live rewards system doesnt even close to being offered free games.

It paid for the latest chapter of the Walking Dead for me, and we've just been given Happy Wars, it's not much, but it's better than nothing.

Would a rock band mic work with this?
