The video game blog Kotaku recently posted about the XBOX 360 game Lips. They also mentioned the game may have a possible integration with the Zune. Karaoke for your Zune? Check out what they had to say.
One of Lips‘ biggest value propositions is its ability to stream in music from MP3 players, external hard drives and Windows Media Center. When we saw the function at E3, it was still incomplete, with the promise of more information to come. According to Microsoft, your “digital rights management-free songs” will be supported by Lips, but that the title “won’t be launching day one with any lyrics support.” iNiS’s Keiichi Yano told us at E3 that the developer had a “creative solution” coming, so we hope that this feature hasn’t been dropped.
The interface for singing along with your off-soundtrack tunes will be slightly different from the core game. The Freestyle Mode will instead feature “virtual music videos” and a visualizer for melodic sing-along parts. Esaki told us that one of the more bizarre track selections he’s currently playing is the Star Wars “Imperial March” theme.
