LIPS goes politically correct with its 'Holiday Music' songs

Christmas? We'll be having none of that, son. It's "Holidays" on Xbox Live, and that of course involves an obligatory Hanukkah reference so that nobody thinks you're racist. LIPS is getting some "Holiday Music" and unlike that Anti-Semitic SingStar, our Jewish friends get a song. Huzzah!

Rather disconcertingly, and totally not in the spirit of the season, the LIPS songs are individually priced and quite pricey when bundled. Elivs Presley's "Blue Christmas" is 180 Microsoft Points while "The Dreidel Song" by Sister Hazel can be yours for 160 Points. This is clearly racism on the part of Microsoft, believing that Jews won't buy the track unless it's at a lower price.  

The final song on offer is Andy Williams' "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," which one can assume is also 160 Points. That'll be 500 Points for all three songs, which doesn't exactly look like a good deal to me. Still, with tens of thousands of "kazual gaymerz" adopting the Xbox 360 and forgetting all about the Wii, I'm sure there will be a lot of LIPS downloads.
