The Beatles : Rockband : Singstar

The new addition to the Singstar range comes with two wired mics, packaged like a Singstar game (complete with the Singstar name embossed in the plastic) so it must be a Singstar game, right? If that is the case, why is it “compatible with both the standard Rock Band drums and guitar” and why does the case holding the game clearly show Rockband and not mention Singstar at all?

Just to add to the confusion, MCV are reporting that the game (with its Singstar Mics and packaging) will be published by MTV Games and EA not Sony.

Logically, this Frankenstein of a release is going to be just a repackaged Beatles Rockband and all the publishers have done is slapped it in that impossible to open Singstar packaging. This would solve the problem of not having any decent quality videos of The Beatles that would of been required if this a ‘proper’ Singstar title. A plan so cunning you could stick a tail on it and call it a fox.
