Microsoft has issued a plea to new
and future purchasers of Guitar Hero: Metallica
for Xbox 360 to also please, please, PLEASE
buy its Lips
karaoke game -- for the microphones. Didn't you know? The metal music game features built-in support for those uh-huh-they-do-sparkle mics. Neversoft, the current Guitar Hero
developer, initially confirmed this compatibility -- which isn't
coming to World Tour
-- on its Twitter feed
last month, but the posting has since been removed. Nevertheless, Guitar Hero: Metallica
is the first music game to support the much praised, wireless Lips
peripheral, which has been unsuccessfully bundled with a mediocre singing game.
Additionally, Microsoft has tentatively dated that long-ago-promised Rock Band 2
patch for "this summer" and suggested that additional titles supporting its mic will be available later this year. When, surely, we'll be able to purchase a standalone Lips
mic. Pretty please?
