Take That to relight your fire in SingStar

Recently revived '90s boy band hitting the PS3 and PS2 later this year.

by

With E3 wrapped up for another year, and Sony basking in the warm glow of its press conference unveilings, the publisher has let loose news of a new edition to its hugely successful SingStar franchise.

Soon you too could be this cool...at home on your sofa.

SingStar Take That will be dancing its way onto PS2s and PS3s, following in the footsteps of other artist tie-ins in the series, including Singstar Abba and Singstar Queen. The new title will allow fans of the pop group to sing along with some of their greatest hits, including classics such as "Could It Be Magic" and "Back for Good" and their latest hit, "Shine." The game will be compatible with the latest SingStar wireless microphones and will be launching later in the year.

The PS3 version of the title should also support hot-swapping of discs from other games in the SingStar franchise, allowing players to rapidly move on from Take That’s back catalogue should the mood take them.

Eager singers will also be able to download a Take That track pack for the original SingStar on the PS3 that contains five songs from the game, which should be available before the game's release this summer. Sony will also be bringing the game on tour at selected Take That shows this year so fans will be able to get warmed up with a belting rendition of "Never Forget" before hearing the real thing on stage.

My mom loves ABBA, so I got it on PS3 on sale for $9.99.

I never understand why Sony have an Abba and Take That game exclusively to their console... The teen girl/middle-aged-woman market is over with the Wii. Oh, and I hate Take That!

This is the best news since Pippa Funnels Pony Training on the DS. Awesome.

Abba is for old people like me. Queen, I guess for everyone. But sony needs to check their sales statistics. Girls who dig Take That have a wii. I hope this doesn't offend any girl, though. Maybe sony is targetting a new group. I wonder when we'll have aerosmith or the rolling stones (oldies for an oldy)

what the hell is wrong with sony? giving queen a game is one thing, they are still popular and successful, but abba and take that??? those should be downloads at the very best, hell i would excuse abba in comparison to a crappy 90s boy band.

They are very popular over here, going to see them on stage soon with my sister and mother. I actually like some of their songs.

What about 2gether? U + Me = Us (Calculus), Say It (Don't Spray It), or even The Hardest Part of Breaking Up (Is Getting Back Your Stuff).

"Rule the World", from the Stardust movie, by Take That is a really cool song. It's a stellar movie!

I'd prefer a Take That beat 'em up, where you had to punch them to stop them singing. Special moves to break the fat dancer's neck, bonus points for making Mark Owen cry, I can see the game taking shape already... :-)
