About SingStar

SingStar is a karaoke video game for the PlayStation 2, published by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and developed by SCEE and London Studio. SingStar is distributed either as the software alone, or bundled with a pair of USB microphones - one red, one blue. SingStar is compatible with the EyeToy camera, allowing players to see themselves singing. In 2005, SingStar and SingStar Party jointly received the award for originality at the BAFTA Games Awards. SingStar is a karaoke game in which players sing to music videos in order to score points. Players interface with their PS2 via SingStar-brand USB microphones (not compatible with any other game) while a music video plays on screen. Lyrics are shown at the bottom of the screen. SingStar matches a player's song voice to the original track, with players scoring points according to how accurate their singing is. Until the release of the PS3 edition, the game series could only detect pitch.
