Heads up, karaoke fans! Looks like classic PlayStation franchise SingStar could well be going free-to-play. Hints were dropped on the official SingStar Viewer PS3 application, with a message informing users of its imminent closure.
The standalone app, which works independently from the currently disc-based karaoke series, allows players to browse their SingStar
media libraries, search for the libraries of other users, download new tracks and share media online.
Now, upon loading the app a message appears that says, "Support for the SingStar Viewer
has been discontinued. The complete SingStar
experience will be available as a free download very soon. Keep on Singing!" An announcement was later teased on the game's official Twitter account
If it comes to pass, a free-to-play future could be the natural evolution for the SingStar
franchise. At the moment, players have to be in possession of one of the many SingStar
discs available at retail in order to access the karaoke experience.
