    SingStar coming to PS4, does not need mics, just your smartphone.

    Hi everyone! Here at SingStar HQ we’re really excited to announce some very big changes coming to SingStar this year.

    It’s hard to believe but SingStar is ten years old today, and in that time we’ve sold a whopping 26 million copies, so thanks to all of you for your fantastic support over the years.

    Over the last decade we’ve really tried to keep making your SingStar experience the very best possible, like launching the SingStore back in 2007 to give you instant access to the best tracks online. And we don’t plan to stop any time soon.

    We’re pleased to announce that SingStar will be coming to PS4 later this year! We’ll also be launching a free SingStar app that will transform your smartphone into a microphone. That’s right, no mics required.

    The app works with both PS3 and PS4 versions of SingStar and is compatible with smartphones and tablets. The app will also let you create your own personal playlists.

    We’re also working hard to optimize the social experience of SingStar by making it even easier to share the best bits of your night on Twitter and Facebook straight from the game. With an improved scoring system you can also build up your XP and get rewarded for game activity, or challenge your friends online and entertain them with your renditions of your favorite songs.
    26 millions copies? Fricking crazy, I have overheard a lot of the ladies at work talk about getting drunk and having impromptu karaoke nights. So boys, hide your PS4 or put a password on your PSN store wallet.

    hope those songs i have on PS3 are part of the Xbuy and i can use them on PS4.
    As is the case now, you can buy songs individually at 1.15 a pop. And the songs are cross-buy, where available. So if you buy a song on PS3 you automatically get it on PS4 - if it's available for that console. Sony is working on licensing as many of the tracks already available on PS3, so hopefully those with a huge catalogue of already purchased songs will be able to carry them over to PS4.

    Props to Sony for developing an app on your phone to sing into. They make less money on peripherals now. That is some smart tech.

    how? If you own a smartphone, it's free. if you don't, buy a mic. Were is the value proposition for you?

    It's your choice. infact I'm pretty sure you're PS3 mics will work.

    actually that's a smart idea. people always have their phones around but not mics. sometimes people don't want to get a bunch of mics sitting around, waiting for that one day they'll have friends over.

    this makes the game hell of a lot more accessible. but i wish they were doing more than just that.
