Activision Blizzard has apparently filed an application
to trademark Sing Hero
with the US Patent and Trademark Office. IGN
speculates that this could be the company's foray into the karaoke market, in an attempt to take on the lord high diva: Sony's SingStar
Considering how much practice Actilizzard has had with licensing music for Guitar Hero
-- and how much potential there is to exploit
the franchise -- a pure karaoke game sounds perfectly possible. As the depressing lack of "Drum Villain
" constantly reminds us, however, a trademark filing doesn't necessarily guarantee the game's eventual arrival.
