SINGS­TAR: UL­TI­MATE PARTY

EDGE - - SONY -

Pub­lisher/de­vel­oper SCE (Lon­don Stu­dios) For­mat PS3, PS4 Re­lease TBC

For its PS4 de­but, Sings­tar is free­ing it­self of mi­cro­phone pe­riph­er­als. The ones buried in at­tics across the coun­try will still work – well, prob­a­bly – but if you don’t have any to hand, you’ll be able to down­load an iOS or An­droid app to turn your phone into a mic and also al­low you to cue up playlists on both PS3 and PS4. It’s a smart move that, while re­mov­ing some of the theatre, also re­duces the cost and the has­sle of play­ing. There will be a dig­i­tal and phys­i­cal re­lease of the game, the disc in­clud­ing its own 30-track playlist, and more songs will, of course, be avail­able from the SingS­tore. Ter­ri­fy­ingly, game di­rec­tor Chris Bruce has said that the team is work­ing on ways to make shar­ing your per­for­mances to Twit­ter and Face­book even eas­ier than us­ing the Share but­ton, threat­en­ing a tor­rent of off-key snip­pets in your news feed.
