SingStar will become a free download
on the PlayStation 3 XMB "very soon" in Europe, according to an announcement on the PlayStation Blog. The free version of the popular singing software doesn't even require the standard SingStar mic – you can also use official wireless headsets, USB microphones, or the microphone on the PlayStation Eye camera.
The game isn't totally free, of course. You still have to buy songs from the SingStore, unless you already have a collection or just want to sing along to "short demo songs."
