SingStar Viewer enables embarassment without a disc


10:40 AM on 12.15.2009



Buying karaoke tracks and watching people has never been easier than with the upcoming SingStar Viewer application for the PlayStation 3. 

Available for free from the PlayStation Store, the SingStar Viewer is a standalone app that will allow you to do a slew of things only once possible from a SingStar disc. You'll be able to purchase music, as well as watch (and rate) clips of other singers' performances, as well as upload your own. 

Once installed, the app will show up on your XMB under "Games," and can be accessed without the SingStar disc. Previously, SingStar owners had a bond -- only they could watch others embarassing themselves in front of a TV singing Robbie Williams songs. No longer -- now anyone can laugh at you. 

The SingStar Viewer has only been announced for Europe -- where SingStar is some kind of religion -- as "coming very soon." However, it would be silly for Sony not to bring it to other territories; we'll check in with Sony for confirmation.

[Update: SCEA confirms that the Viewer is coming to North America, though they still have not set a date for release.]

E3: Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 3 has mini-games

I gave up on Glee midway through the show's second season (the most recent one) when the storylines got too ridiculous for me to swallow, but I don't think FOX is missing my viewership; the show seems to be as popular as eve...more

GC 10: We Sing Robbie Williams

Naturally, I don't really have anything dramatic to put here, this game does what it says on the tin. It is a singing game that is all about the UK's finest export (other than BritToid of course) known as Robbie Williams. Fo...more
