When SingStar arrives on PlayStation 4 consoles later this year, it won't require shelling out extra dough for a shiny new microphone. Instead, the title will allow you to use your smartphone or tablet as the mic thanks to a free app for iOS and Android. The newfangled software will play nice with both PS3 and PS4 versions of the game with support for custom playlists built in. There's also improved social sharing and song downloads from the SingStore. Heck, they've even added Bruno Mars tunes, so get your pompadour wig ready.
