Among the songs announced today are chart-topping hits such as 'All You Wanted' and 'Are You Happy Now?' written and popularized by Michelle Branch, 'How You Remind Me' popularized by Nickelback and 'It's End of the World As We Know It' written and popularized by R.E.M. Other instantly-recognizable tunes include 'Billie Jean', 'Like a Virgin', 'Chain of Fools', 'Red Red Wine', 'Celebration', 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' and 'Don't Know Why' among others.

Karaoke Revolution is the first and only interactive karaoke game that judges players on pitch and rhythm by awarding points during their performance. Karaoke Revolution also features a dynamic in-game audience that reacts in real-time to each note sung, resulting in a wild crowd backed by an explosive light show for a great performance or disappointed spectators walking away from the stage when the performance is weak. A party game unlike any other, Karaoke Revolution is primed to become a sensation on par with Konami's smash franchise Dance Dance Revolution(tm) and is sure to have players singing all night long.

Designed for singers of all ages and all musical abilities, Karaoke Revolution's robust catalogue of popular songs will appeal to all types of music lovers. Featuring over 35 hit songs, three game modes, and a training tool to teach players the fundamentals of the game, Karaoke Revolution transforms the PlayStation(r)2 console into the ultimate karaoke party machine.

Karaoke Revolution is rated E for Everyone. It will be available for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system in November 2003.
