About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

Sony Europe Reveals First 'Singstar Popworld' (PS2) Details

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe today announced the May 2005 release of SingStar Popworld, a perfect addition to the million-selling SingStar franchise launched in 2004 on the PlayStation 2.

Complimenting the acclaimed SingStar range with a fresh new look and a broad contemporary song selection, SingStar Popworld includes 30 new tracks and supports the impressive list of household-names already featured in the SingStar range, a great recipe to spice up any party!

All the tunes in this unrivalled line-up are easily recognisable and fun to sing with many chart-topping hits of the last three years. The track list is filled with music superstars including original artists such as Avril Lavigne, Jamelia, Keane, Robbie Williams and the Black Eyed Peas.

Classic gameplay modes from previous SingStar games make a welcome comeback in SingStar Popworld. Pass the Mic and Duets return, along with new original features such as "Rap Scoring". Gain extra points as you battle against your crew to see who is the master of the mic, with the ultimate MC showdown! In Medley mode, short segments of five different songs are strung together, challenging would be pop stars to think fast and score high before the tune changes. In addition, SingStar Popworld incorporates brand new voice filters that can be used in Playback Mode to distort and enhance players' vocal performance.

Developed by SCEE's London Studio, SingStar Popworld comes with two microphones that plug into PlayStation 2 via a USB adaptor, offering an instant multi-play experience as the SingStar technology analyses the player's vocal skills, based on their pitch, tone and rhythm. The game is also EyeToy compatible allowing players to actually see themselves singing within the game.

Whether you want to Entertain like Robbie or Sing like Jamelia, there will be loads of new tracks for you on SingStar Popworld. Releasing this spring, exclusively on PlayStation 2.
