SingStar Pop carries tune to US

Karaoke PS2 game SingStar Pop headed across the pond in early April; soundtrack includes A-Ha, Britney, Panic! at the Disco.

Just like how the megahit American Idol was "borrowed" from the UK, another crooning Anglican phenomenon is coming to the US. Sony Computer Entertainment America today announced that SingStar Pop, a karaoke game for the PlayStation 2, will be released in North America on April 3.

Developed by Sony's London studios, SingStar Pop lets gamers live out their fantasies of being a pop singer by using am external microphone peripheral. Multiplayer options include a cooperative duet mode, a versus battle mode, and the team-based pass-the-mic mode. The full song list is below, but those who own SingStar Rocks! can insert that disc and sing songs from that game.

SingStar Pop has not yet been rated by the ESRB and has not been priced. The game will also be available with or without two microphones.

Perhaps you've heard James Blunt's song "You're pretty gosh darned good-looking."

Ah damn it, I wanted Panic! At The Disco and Cartel =[ The Fray, Snow Patrol and James Blunt would have been good to have aswell. Oh well, Singstar for the PS3 is out soon, have near enough whatever song I want then.

Is this coming to Australia because I really hope it does. It has some great songs on there and I would much prefer those songs to the ones we got.

I'm still waiting for someone to give me a good reason to buy SingStar when I own 4 of the Karaoke Revolution games. I'm at least willing to try all 60+ songs in KR, but I know I don't know half the songs on this list and I don't care to learn them. I don't know anybody who has bought SingStar, so I'm not trying to get it until someone can show me that it's any good.

I thought Americans already had Singstar? Man, even Aussies have has Signstar for the better part of 4 years or so. Strange, dont you guys usually get everything 1st, if not 2nd?

Hmmm, much better track list than Singstar Rocks (the U.S. version anyways, the European track list was alot better... which was why I was so disapointed when it was changed so greatly for the U.S. release). I might just pick this one up.

That's actually a pretty decent lineup. Remember kids, it's better to have over 30 songs that totally rock than to have close to 60 songs that you dont really want to sing. I'm looking forward to this release.

Most of the songs on that list do suck, but The Clash, Gorillaz..Hell, I'd even want to sing Take Me Out, 'The Reason', 'These Words'.. Maybe I'll just stick with SingStar Rocks.
