Come October 28, PlayStation 4 owners will have the opportunity to download a new version of SingStar
, specially crafted for Sony's latest console.
According to the PlayStation.blog
, this version of the rhythm game hit will feature all of the content available on the PlayStation 3 incarnation of SingStar
, including access to the DLC music repository known as the SingStore. Like the PS3 game, individual songs are priced at $1.49 while five-song packs can be purchased for $6. Happily, any music you've downloaded from the SingStore or PSN for the PlayStation 3 version of SingStar will automatically transfer to the PlayStation 4 game.
But what if you don't have a microphone to sing into? How will your PlayStation 4 judge your off-key warbling? Don't worry, Sony's got you covered. A free SingStar
companion app called "SingStar Mic" will reach iOS and Android alongside the PlayStation 4 launch of SingStar
. Not only will the app allow users to create custom playlists on the fly, it will also transform your tablet or smartphone into a viable wireless microphone for the game.
