March 2. Starting on that date, you will begin seeing Lips: Party Classics in the Xbox 360 section of your local videogame-carrying stores. While you probably won't buy the thing, you will surely witness the hidden pain of the trapped souls on its cover each and every time you casually stroll by.
On a lighter note, it's been revealed that Lips: Party Classics will work with "popular USB microphones," such as those of the Rock Band and Guitar Hero variety. Neat! The less restrictions for these peripheral-centric games, the better.
Knowing full well that it can only get us to talk about one Lips announcement per week (or is it per month?), Microsoft also crammed the latest word on the downloadable songs into our tips inbox of doom. Head on past the break if you want to see what's on the horizon.
[Editor's Note: Don't tell Nick Chester that I wrote this post, otherwise he will force me to write all future Lips-related stories with his fabled "forcing stick." That's got to be the 10th circle of Hell or something. Have mercy!]
