There’s always been a musical element to The Sims, with a succession of stars signing up to appear in different spin-offs (think Lily Allen performing ‘Smile’ in Simlish). Now publisher EA is launching a Sims-themed karaoke site called The Sims On Stage.
Basically, it’ll let you login and upload your
caterwauling singing for the community to rate, as well as creating your own mash-up videos using Sims footage. The site will have thousands of licensed rock, pop and country songs to sing along to from launch.
Oh, and it’s Web 2.0 friendly, so you’ll be able to embed your stirring performances in your social networking profile or blog. It’s all based on an existing karaoke site called SingShot, which EA bought earlier this year.
