SingStar: A closer look at the Mic app, social features and camera integration

With just two weeks until launch, check out a few of the new game features

The brand new SingStar will be released on PS4 and PS3 in just under two weeks’ time, and we’re very excited to get it in to all SingStar players hands!

Not only have we given the game an awesome interface overhaul, there are also tons of cool new features that I want to tell you about in a bit more detail.

No mic? No problem. The free SingStar Mic app can turn your smart device into a microphone in no time. Simply download the app on your iOS/Android smart device, connect it to the same wifi network as the PS3 or PS4 and get going instantly.

To enable all your friends at the party to get involved and have a go at winning (or failing miserably!), we’ve added an awesome playlist creator to the SingStar Mic app too so they can line up songs whilst the singers are entertaining the room :) Pick any of the songs available on the PlayStation you’re connected to and just cue them up. Basically, no more waiting on the indecisive people in the room to decide if they want to sing Pharrell’s Happy, or Lionel Ritchie’s Hello.

Have you got a competitive streak and like to beat down your PSN friends? Once you’ve finished your performance, you can challenge your PSN friends to beat your high-score. When practising for those weekend parties it’s a chance to challenge friends and hit them with your best scores. The high scores refresh weekly to keep the competition fresh and the challenges coming.

And we are expecting to see some awesome performance videos. If you have a PlayStation 4 camera you can now use it to create all kinds of amazing effects in your videos and snapshots. Swap colour filters during gameplay and transform yourself into your favourite music persona using the fun new AR masks, and add a bit of atmosphere with some funky lighting effects. Check some of the effects and masks below.



There’s so much more to discover in the new SingStar but I think I’ll let you find out for yourselves in a few weeks time!

Don’t forget, there’s also still time to pre-order the amazing SingStar Ultimate Party disc. Check out the tracklist ­here.
