A new app from Sony is now available to interact with SingStar on the PS3, and tomorrow’s PS4 release of the franchise. The app acts as a virtual microphone for game, so you can use your phone’s mic to sing into rather than buying one for the game.
While the game, available digitally on the PlayStation Store is free, the songs aren’t. SingStar is like a really spiffy version of Karaoke, where the pitch of your voice is actually monitored to give you a score. The series has been around since the days of the PlayStation 2, and is a Sony exclusive. Kids these days may not appreciate the convenience of not having to buy an accessory to play a game, but if we ever get another Rock Band they will learn, yes they will learn indeed.
