Singstar is a karaoke style competition game that you use a special microphone with the Playstation 2 to play. It plays the video of the song, words at the bottom, and judges if you are on key and holding notes correctly. The game features modes to play with others such as "pass the mic," battle, and duet. You can also use a special web-camera to make videos of your own performances. The series includes titles such as rock, pop, 80's and such.
Well, on October 28, a country edition will be available.
The Singstar Country will include 30 songs from artists such as Kenny Chesney, Jessica Simpson, Miranda Lambert, Montgomery Gentry, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, and Faith Hill. On the cover you see Brad Paisley, Gretchen Wilson, and Alan Jackson pictured as well as mentions of Kellie Pickler, Brooks & Dunn, Martina McBride, and Sara Evans.
I'm not much of a gamer, however, I will be seeking out a friend that has the console to try this one out I do believe.
Also, there is a special contest "Sing Your Way to the CMA Awards" will be featured in 12 major radio markets where they will hold competitions to win tickets to the show.
