Love it or loathe, the X Factor talent show is here to stay, and this year it’s going to have a SingStar-style karaoke game to accompany it.
The game will “capture all the excitement and entertainment of the TV show and will include auditions, boot camp and judges’ houses levels, as well as several game modes from individual career to duets and battles”.
Due for release on the Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 before Christmas, 28 songs make up the game’s soundtrack, including tracks by U2, Lady Gaga, Pixie Lott and Stanfour.
Personally, I’m looking forward to this year’s Christmas chart showdown and inevitable anti-X Factor web campaign. John Cage’s “4’33” for Christmas Number One 2010 anybody?
Cage Against the Machine!
