Lips: Number One Hits announced, due out this Holiday season

Remember a while back when we discovered that Lips Uno had been trademarked? Looks like that little revelation did indeed herald the arrival of a new Lips sequel, with Lips: Number One Hits announced today by Microsoft. As you may have already guessed, Number One Hits is a game full of number one hits, from Culture Club to MC Hammer and of course, Timbaland. Oh what fun!

It seems that Microsoft is determined to make the Xbox 360 a casual haven, despite the original game failing to capture the imagination of the mainstream. I guess we now have yearly Lips sequels to look forward to, and yet more wonderful commercials in which pretty-faced simpletons act like baboons while trying to convey how much of a fun party the Xbox 360 truly is.

Hit the jump for the full press release. You are so very excited.

From Coldplay to Culture Club to MC Hammer, the second title in the "Lips" franchise offers a diverse collection of global chart-topping tunes Grab your friends and family and warm up those vocal chords! It’s time to transform your next get-together into a memory-making musical affair with “Lips: Number One Hits.” Combined with the original “Lips” game, “Lips: Number One Hits” sets the stage for the ultimate singing party with a new collection of global chart-topping songs to satisfy even the choosiest of performers. So regardless if your preferred stage is an amphitheatre, or just your living room, everyone will love the latest from Xbox 360’s exclusive singing franchise.

Hitting store shelves in October 2009, “Lips: Number One Hits” features popular tracks spanning diverse genres and generations that have graced the No. 1 position on major global charts. These top tunes include:

• “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay
• “Disturbia” by Rihanna
• “U Can’t Touch This,” by MC Hammer
• “More Than Words,” by Extreme
• “Apologize” by Timbaland featuring OneRepublic
• “Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club
• “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye
• “Oh, Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison
• “Ready, Set, Go!” by Tokio Hotel
• And many more yet to be announced!

Combined with the power of the motion-sensitive LED wireless microphones, which are compatible with the top third-party music games releasing this fall, “Lips: Number One Hits” should let even the shiest closet singers grab a mic and strut their stuff with friends and family.

“Lips: Number One Hits” and the original “Lips” game combine to create the ultimate singing party, with more songs to keep the fun rocking all night long. But for singers with an insatiable appetite for variety, both the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and the in-game Get Music Store feature a vast library of tunes that can be downloaded for both titles. New tracks of all genres and artist-specific songs packs are added regularly each week, so personal catalogs can keep growing and growing. “Lips,” combined with the power of Xbox LIVE, makes Xbox 360 the best destination for music game fans.

“Lips,” Xbox 360’s first exclusive singing party game from iNiS, launched November 2008. The second title, “Lips: Number One Hits,” launches this October 2009. More information on “Lips” is available at http://lips.xbox.com.

Why is it impossible to find a raid group in Destiny? Am I just cursed or something? All I want is to get a clan and do a raid.

Hnnnggg. My End of Evangelion video I made like 2 years ago has almost 700,000 views. I never thought it'd get this far. It was the first video I ever made and just did it for fun. Guess I have an eye for editing and an ear for music placement.

I want to listen to classical music. But I'm in a funky mood right now. The solution?

Been watching Better Call Saul, being a pretty big fan of Breaking Bad, and it's been pretty decent. Like a b-side to BB. But, this scene with Trevor (GTAV)-famous Steven Ogg has been my highlight. There's more to it before this, but it's the best part.

...Does Ubisoft let their employees do drugs before they write surveys? It really seems like it. "The progression of the main character (skills) in the game should be adapted" Can anyone tell me what the hell that's supposed to mean?

I always thought the anime Baccano felt like something out of Guy Richie or Tarantino--then someone made the intro of Snatch with the opening theme from Baccano playing over it. Two of my favorite things together and it fits beautifully. I love it <3

Weird nerdy confession: I actually wrote, and got HEAVILY invested in, Pokemon fan fiction. It was based on a RP Story I did on The Escapist forums, and featured a love story between a Squirtle and a Miltank. To this day, Miltank still gets me aroused. :P

It's been ages since I've been as addicted to a game. That changed yesterday. I can't stop playing Crypt of the Necrodancer. Send help. My hands hurt.

As I'm back to studying, I can't help but recall that while it took me a week to read 10 pages of psychology theory I managed to read an analysis on Killer7's plot, that was 100 pages long, in a day. Good times.
