SingStar 2 set for summer release

Sony has successfully used SingStar to turn your basic, low–rent house gathering into a Mariah Carey caterwauling contest. And now they’re

The bang–up–to–date version comes with 30 new tracks and supports Remote Play, so you can buy more tunes on the move. Just in case you want to sing that Iron Maiden track rattling around your head when you get home.

Tracks by the likes of The Killers, Nirvana and Eminem are also available, just in case you want to get down on your own after a lengthy session in your local.

It’s due over the summer, but Sony’s keeping schtum about price. Whether we’ll take it up or plump for Rock Band though, is a whole different matter.
