Karaoke is serious business around Destructoid headquarters. Don't believe me? We have video proof that we don't mess around when it comes to the fine-art of the instrumental sing-a-long. 

Konami has long brought karaoke to the videogame space, starting in 2003 with the PlayStation 2 release of Karaoke Revolution. In 2009, Konami is getting serious with an update to the series. One look at the new logo -- a sleeker, more space-aged take on the words "karaoke" and revolution" (which you can see here) -- makes this very clear. 

Hit the jump to learn about the newer, more cereal Karaoke Revolution that Konami will be bringing to retail later this year.

SingStar fans, Sony has an early Christmas for you: backwards compatibility!

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 th...

Microsoft reveals first Lips DLC, includes Coldplay, Jason Mraz, and more  photo
Microsoft reveals first Lips DLC, includes Coldplay, Jason Mraz, and more
by Nick Chester

The iNiS Corp-developed karaoke title Lips should be available in stores today, and with it Microsoft has revealed the first batch of downloadable content for the Xbox 360 exclusive. 

Starting tomorrow, November 21, Microsoft will be making four songs available: Adele's "Chasing Pavement," Estelle's "No Substitute Love," Jason Mraz's "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)," and Coldplay's "Violet Hill." 

November 28 will bring three more tracks, Supertramp's "Give a Little Bit," Smash Mouth's "All Star," and Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles." Holiday content, with custom holiday videos, will be coming from Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, Gen Autry, and more starting on December 5. Each song will cost 160 MS Points a piece and will be available from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace of in-game "Get Music" store.

I'm not going to lie -- I want Lips. Maybe it's the fancy light-up microphones, or the fact that the wireless mics may possibly someday be compatible with that other game I play that requires singing. (I'm not talking about Left 4 Dead, although my "Zombies Be All Up In My Grill" song is tearing up the Xbox LIVE charts.)

Anyone pick up Lips? Let us know what you think.

Australian Singstar Amped needs more Bowie

Aside from being playable at Lollapalooza this year, Singstar Amped’s Australian track listing has been revealed by Gamespot. Amped is all about rock, but I use that term pretty lightly. It’s more like, “stu...

First pics from upcoming iNiS title Lips

I was excited about Lips when info about it was first leaked last month -- despite visions of Frank-N-Furter's dramatic red mouth from the Rocky Horror Picture Show (thanks for that, Jim), I'm a sucker for any game in which I...
