Hey all, just got the game, so if you have any questions, let me know.


I was wondering if you can use the Vision Cam to put your face on the character models? In the review of TeamXbox they said that they couldn't find a way to do it. Would be nice to know if its possible or not.

Doesn't say anywhere in the manual how to do that. I'm wondering if that was a PlayStation 2 only thing. In the PS2 versions, I could put my face on the character using the Eye Toy camera, but I don't see anything on the 360.

Ahh ok. Another quick question. Just read the review on IGN for the game and they say that you cant customize your own character with your own name and all. That the character creation is very limited. Is that true?

If so its a bit dissapointing since the PS2 version allows all sorts of customization and the use of the eye toy. Im now on the fence on going with the PS2 version of the 360 version. Each has its pros and cons. The good thing about the xbox version is being able to download songs in the future. That is if it even happens.

Yeah, the character customization is pretty limited. You can rename the characters, but you can't create new ones.

BTW, Knockin on Heaven's door is the Guns N' Roses version. Man is it hard to sound like Axel Rose.

Ahh cool, this is what the reviewer from IGN stated about renaming:

"To begin with, your character customization options are extremely limited. You can't create a singer from scratch, can't change a character's name and can't change a model's body type. Not being able to adequately make yourself kind of knocks the wind out of trying to become the next Idol superstar and is even more depressing because these options are included on the PlayStation 2 version of this game."


But its good to hear that it actually allows you to rename a character.

it feels pretty barebones. should of been available mic-less, but it doesn't even work with the headset like the XBOX versions did. I like using the mic more because you can hear yourself better, while not interrupting people watching.

One of the loading screens does say that you can use your cam to see yourself singing on the video screen in background.

I must say that the online mode makes this pretty fun. Since I can't always have people over, it's cool to meet people online and play the game. Now I hope they announce some new songs soon.

The camera replaces the big monitor behind you which means you can see yourself singing the real deal behind your character. Also at some stages there are tvs so you are looking at yourself in 4 different tvs at the same time which is kinda cool.

This game's been fun to play with the wife, and she seems to be more into it than me. So it is good to have another game the wife enjoys.

Most definitely the Rock Band mic will work.



So the Rock Band WILL work or does work?

If it does, I'm picking up the 360 version. If not, I'll deal with having the PS2 version, since I just saw it without the bundle at Best Buy.

I'm far more familar with these songs than Rock Band (thanks years of working in a Supermarket). Might pick this up when it drops a bit.

unfortunately it comes only in a bundle for 360. So if you have a Rock Band mic, you now have two mics for Duets and Head to Head battles.

haven't heard a peep. Even the song list for this game didn't come out until people had the game in their hands. I wish Konami can communicate the downloadable songs in advance like Harmonix does with Rock Band.

Finally got the game. Will definitely have to download some of these because the setlist in the game is kinda weak as it is.

Is anyone else horrified by the vocals on the Black Hole Sun cover??

Thanks for the info. OP updated.

I havent received my copy from TRAINN yet but once I do get it Ill have to download at least 10 of those tracks. Some good stuff there. I think its good that they are releasing songs from previous Karaoke games as I never got to try them. I wished they would have just cost 100 points instead of the 120 but whatever.

Mic is a Logitech like the Rock Band one, but cheaper version. It works, but doesn't have the nice feel of the RB one.

I have this game - I really like it, but only for the karaoke aspect, the American Idol branding and whatnot is weak at best.

My sister and I have been playing it a ton this weekend. There are enough good tracks, plus we downloaded some. Already looking forward to the next song update. We've been trying to get diamond (perfect rating) on every song, which is both frustrating and hilarious to do. Online play is also quite fun.

I got it for $59.99 at Target - kind of glad to save that $10. The Randy/Paula/Simon comments got old quick, we ended up skipping past them every time in Tournament mode. Also, the character customization is indeed weak, and the crowd AI during performances is horrid. It's literally one sim copied like a hundred times - same clothes and all. Pretty lame for a current gen game. Hitting really low notes is totally hit or miss for me. However, karaoke is seriously fun and I'm glad to have one to play on my 360. Definitely a sale pick up.

Also - Copacabana is an incredibly Fucking hard song to do. Screw you, Barry Manilow.
