For those who are into the Karaoke Revolution games, the new American Idol edition just dropped to 19.99 new and 17.99 used at Gamestop/EB stores.

The game is also 19.99 at circuitcity.com and 29.99 bundled with the microphone.

I have not seen it this cheap anywhere else yet, so I am not sure if this is a universal price drop or not. This is a great game for parties and easily worth its price.

These also retain/increase in value.

Original Karaoke Revolution is $60-70, the country one is $40+ on Amazon.

Can I play this on PS3? How does the mic connect to the PS2?
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

you can buy any of them with or without the mic

the American Idol pressed the most copies so has the lowest resale value. KR 1 is the hardest to find/most expensive/over priced by hoarders

Country should be cheap as it sold poorly and new sealed copies are everywhere

KR 2 is also tough to get at a good price.

So far they all work great upscaled on PS3 w/ mics and no lag on my Samsung HDTV w/ game mode on.

Although most of them are 480i so they look blurry on the PS3

i may have to pick this one up...i have kr1/country/party, why not get another?

i'll probably wait til it drops at cc/tru/kmart though. i'd rather pay $10-15 for the bundle so i can get another ps2 mic.

Is the american idol one worth picking up? I've got all the other karaoke revolutions besides that one and country, but I don't watch AI, so is it worth it?
Also, I've always wondered: Will KR mikes work with Singstar? Vice versa?

Worth it: if you like the music. Has the good features of the later games (Duet, etc.). Makes no difference if you watch the show or not, they just judge you at the end, really the only difference.

Mics: Nope.

Figures, I just picked this up game-only a week ago for $30 (already had two mics from nabbing KR Country bundles at K-Mart and reselling the games).

Marion: I've found that AI edition has a decent setlist, and some of the videos are pretty funny even if you've never seen the show. You can always not bother with American Idol mode and just play it like a normal KR game if you want. And even if you do play AI mode, you can skip the commentary easily so it feels more like the arcade / challenge modes in the others. The brand name doesn't get in the way too much.

No, Singstar Mics only work with Singstar. Karaoke Revolution Mics are just simple USB Mics that work with everything else except for Singstar. I've used my KR mic on my laptop even while talking to someone on Skype.

This may be off topic, but will the microphone that comes with Boogie (on Nintendo Wii) work with Karaoke Revolution on PS2? It has a USB input and I see no reason why it wouldn't but I have to be sure!

Yep, they are the exact same mic. In fact I haven't even opened the Boogie Mic. I've been using my ps2 KR mic connected to the Wii.

I've seen the country version with the mic under $20 at a k-mart.

Are these games fun?

Great fun. I've got KR1 and 2. Country Revolution, and the two Singstar Disks, and I'll pick this up.

My friends and family prefer the singstar games, but I like the KR scrolling lyric mechanic better.

Also note: - Your SOCOM mics work with these games too.
- the CR bundle has a mic w/o the ear piece, but still works.

Toys'R'Us has a few of the Karaoke Revolution games, specifically the country one, in their $10 bin. My local store had a few copies.

I -think- they had a couple of the American Idol versions with a microphone for $20.

My friend just bought the mic version for $25 with a coupon at Bestbuy yesterday.

*sigh* I need to check my local TRU to see if they have any copies of Country. I still need that and Party for PS2. Vol 1-3 and AI are great and all but I am trying to avoid paying $40+ if I can help it.

Okay, Country is $9.90 at TRU, and Party is $5! Both PS2. Check your store's clearance bins!

KR: American Idol with Microphone was $30. I didn't ask how much it cost without the microphone. It was still marked as $40, though, so ask before buying!

And the one with a microphone was $60 at the Wal-Mart across the street from Toys'R'Us.:-#
