It’s easy to forget poor old SingStar, crushed into the mud of the Guitar Hero/Rock Band wars, but there are people out there who just want to get up off the sofa and let rip with their vocal chords without the aid of any silly instruments.
This is not my outlook on home-based popstar games you understand, but I can see how the endless rock could get to some very strange, lifeless people out there; the sort that dance around handbags or form a circle with their mates and bounce up and down every time ‘Come on Eileen’ graces the airwaves. These people may like to know that ABBA have agreed a deal with SingStar to bring their catalogue to PS2s and PS3s of the world in time for a good old fashioned Christmas sing-a-long.
Personally, I’d sooner stick with jigsaws and mixed nuts but, if you can’t get enough of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid, then you’ll be able to warble away to ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’, ‘Waterloo’ and ‘Dancing Queen’ while your Grandad falls asleep in his armchair.
The game will be available to all in Europe and the US exclusively to Playstation until December 2009, after which it’s open season – open festive season that is.
