Sony has announced that Singstar Ultimate Party is coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation4.
The game, which includes a free companion app which turns your iOS/Android phone into a microphone, features a 30 track compilation disc, the ability to share your favourite game play moments with the SingStar community thanks to PS4's social features, online score challenges and more.
Dave Ranyard, Studio Director of SCEE WWS comments, "I can't believe it’s been 10 years since we first launched SingStar - it’s great to see how popularity of the brand has grown over the decade with 26 million discs now sold worldwide and 25 million tracks downloaded. Back in 2004 we were really breaking new ground, there weren't really any party or social games around at that stage and the idea of singing into a console was very new! But we've always said, people love singing together - and SingStar has always delivered and continues to deliver on the promise of enabling social singing. What's really exciting about today is that we're announcing a reinvention of SingStar, this time for the digital generation!"
In addition to the features already mentioned, players can now earn experience and receive rewards for in game activity, and an improved scoring system gives the new version of the classic game a new edge.
Plus, the free app gives players the chance to manage their playlists and queue up the best tracks.
Players can refresh their existing collection of tracks with the latest new music or start a brand new collection. A consistently low price point for songs and song packs can be expected across the board with the single song price as EURO 1.39/USD 1.49/GBP 1.15 and the song pack price as for 5 songs EURO 6.49/USD 5.99/GBP 5.35.
The SingStar discs which will be released on PS3 and PS4 will be offered at a low price point, set to retail at a proposed price of around €29.
There is currently no release date for the game.
