That SingStar PS2 titles are not playable is a major annoyance -- especially if you sold your PS2 when you brought your shiny new PS3 home. Or at least, it was -- it seems Sony has decided to make these incompatibilities a thing of the past.

Looks like you may be able to have that drunken kareoke themed Christmas party you were dreaming of after all (make sure to place mistletoe in the kitchen so you can innocently make out with people after make drunken fools of themselves).
