Sony Announces New SingStar titles for the PS3 and the PS2
Sony Computer Entertainment America announced today that they would be bringing the new SingStar: Queen to both the PS3 and the PS2 on August 18, 2009. The game marks the franchises second attempt at band specific titles, giving fans a chance to try their chops at singing songs popularized by the legendary Queen.
SingStar Queen for the PS3 will include 25 of the pop-rock groups greatest chart toppers, including ‘Another One Bites the Dust’, and of course ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. SingStar Queen for the PS3 also brings access to SingStars backlog featuring hundreds of songs featuring the real artists and videos via the online SingStore.
Set your playlist, rock it out then share with your friends and family using SingStars’ My SingStar Online Community, which has been enhanced for this new game.
In addition, SingStar Queen will bring another unique feature to the franchise, with the ability to sort through songs and choose your set list by simply speaking into the microphone. This new feature will also extend to searching and downloading new songs from the SingStore. This new feature is set to be available early next week via global patch release, and should be compatible with all SingStar discs.
The SingStar franchise also continues to grow on the PS2, increasing that music library as well. The PS2 version of SingStar Queen will feature 20 of Queens greatest tracks. The PS2 version will not feature the new voice interaction present on the PS3.
