Yeah, I'm surprised at the lack of information about this game. You'd think we'd see a TV ad on American Idol or something. These games could sell huge.

I just wish the 360 version came without a microphone. Having owned every single Karaoke Revolution game, Rock Band, Boogie...etc. I have way too many microphones. I'm still using my first Karaoke Revolution mic for all these games.

Is this a Harmonix game? Didn't they do the earlier ones?

EDIT: nope according to gamefaqs, Developer: Blitz Games

Songlist looks uninspiring so far, to say the least.

EDIT2: final song list looks better

A multi-platform game in the 360 forum... Why does this have to always happen...? :S

I have been excited for this game since I heard about it. I will get it for the Wii though. I wonder if GCN mics are compatible with Wii mic games (i.e. KR, Boogie, High School Musical). I have two GCN mics (as well as two USB PS2/PS3 mics) and would rather buy a game only version.

Anyone have experience with Wii microphone games who can help on this?

Nope, only USB microphones work.

As for the developer, yes Harmonix did the earlier version. Blitz games did the first Karaoke Revolution American Idol and it used the exact same karaoke engine. I assume it'll be the same for this version.

No offense, but this thread is more informative by the way buterbals has all the info in the first post.

Thanks for the achievement list though.

Hopefully they will frequently add more tracks, and at a good price. I cant wait for the game as Ive enjoyed the previous titles.

Is this basically a singstar clone?

Tracklist looks fairly lame, and the coverart is perhaps the worst in the history of videogames, but if the price is right, everybody loves a bit of karaoke now and then.

songlist looks right up my wife's alley - stuff she listens to on the radio all the time. I'm pretty impressed with the variety of songs for what it is. Hell if I had my choice it'd probably be a bunch of Ween and Iron and Wine - go figure - but I got over my music snobbery years ago... She loves the karaoke games so may pick this one up for her. I can't sing worth a flip though...

Or you could just keep buying new Rock Band content every week.
But of course this has songs that will never be in RB.

Actually, IIRC, Karaoke Revolution was released well before Singstar. Singstar copied Karaoke Rev.

I am glad they finally released Karaoke for the Xbox 360. I was still play it for the Xbox. =D

There's no way it's a singstar clone. The karaoke engine in singstar is garbage compared to the one created by Harmonix (used in all Karaoke Revolution games and Rock Band). This game is more like Rock Band's vocal tour, but you get judged in the end.

The songlist is pretty disappointing. I'm guessing the 'What is Love' song must be Haddaway, made famous from the Night at the Roxbury SNL sketches.

Everyone needs to take the song list with a grain of salt until Konami releases the full list (or the game comes out at the rate they are going).

Karaoke revolution party is the only reason my XBOX is still plugged in.
But this list looks like it would never beat out party's list.

Or it could be the one by Howard Jones. I just couldn't imagine them placing that annoying song by Haddaway in the game.

EDIT: Finally found some new images which does confirm some of the tracks on the list.

Thanks for the info about the Wii mics. Hopefully just any old USB mics will work then, since I have two Logitech mics...

XBOX.com has just put up a page for the game, it does have a few new images that look alot better than the ones already posted here.

Also, the XBOX Live Vision cam will be put to use, most likely in the same way as it was used in the past game. Which is a good thing as I havent used my Vision Cam at all.

Another good thing is that on the xbox.com page it states the following:

Expand your library of music with hundreds of downloadable songs


Also xbox.com confirms a new song "Bohemian Rhapsody" made famous by Queen.

I thought this was supposed to come out today, but the Gamestop page states it isn't shipping yet, and I can't find it anymore.

EDIT: Nevermind....just found it....should be in stores now.....

Big question is probably: Can we use our Rock Band mics for this?
