Singstar Goes ‘Free To Play’, From A Certain Point Of View

You still need a microphone to play it, and yes, you’ll have to pay for one if you don’t already have it. But it appears SingStar, the venerable PlayStation karaoke title, is going free-to-play, according to a message screen popping up now.

“The complete SingStar experience will be available as a free download very soon!” says the screen, encountered in the free SingStar viewer. The whole thing means to say the service has been discontinued but will be reborn later. notes that “complete SingStar experience” likely means freeing users from the need to put a disc in the tray to play content purchased from the game’s online store. Moving the title to an a la carte, semi-free-to-play experience probably is smart. You still need to buy a controller to play it, so keep that in mind.

Is the Future of SingStar Free to Play? [PSNStores via Joystiq]


  • article is good but disappointing, i thought it would say all song will now be available free, still seems like a good thing

    • It makes more sence to do it this way tho… The only real change from game to game was the songs, so now people can buy the songs they like and ‘play’ them. There is also no real differnce between this and most other F2P games.

      What I don’t get is why Ben-Obi-One-Conobi is the ‘face’ of this artiacl…

      • Obi-Wan: “So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view.”
        Luke: “A certain point of view?”
        Obi-Wan: “Luke, you’re going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.”
