After 'American Idol,' there's always 'SingStar'

Singing game will be launched for the U.S. market this month.

I4U News

Considering how unfortunately popular karaoke remains here, it's surprising that it has taken so long for this music game to arrive on U.S. shores. But Singstar is finally getting a stateside launch for the PlayStation 3 on May 20, according to I4U News.

The game, which is already on the European market, comes with 30 songs loaded on its disc but also allows hundreds more to be purchased and downloaded from the "SingStore," which will be expanded by 25-30 songs each month. Each tune, which goes for $1.49, comes with a video of the artist.

But I4U News says the "killer feature" may be something called "My SingStar Online," a site where aspiring singers can post their own videos and hope to be discovered. Be warned, however: The performances are rated by the SingStar community, and the reviews can be brutal.
