    Singstar or Lips??

    Ok, I am a massive fan of karaoke and have played both of these games but not for long enough (or in any fit state) to make any sort of comparison. Does anyone have an opinion on which game is best??

    I am looking to buy an xbox or a PS3 and I am ashamed to say that this will be a significant factor in my purchasing decision. All opinions welcome!

    I played Lips on the 360 at New Years and Singstar on the PS3 last weekend...Lips is better. Although Singstar has more songs on the disc and its so cheap to download from the marketplace, although you have to credit you account, lowest you can credit is £5.

    well, i have only ever played lips on xbox which i love coz i am a huge fan of singing myself

    i have a friend who plays these kinda games!!!

    he loves playin them with his family friend etc....he has played singstar since PS2 days and still loves it...

    tired lips for a week after christmas...says its terrible

    so from what ive heard singstar is by far better than lips!

    Lips is definately the best!

    Is the marketplace on Xbox or PS3? I have heard that Singstar is better at telling how well you are singing do you think this is true?

    we have singstar and gotta say I love it. Love they now have shed loads of songs for you to download!! For ages there was nothing and you were stuck with pretty much just what was on the disc. Wish they had cordless mics though. Its kinda hard to dance along when the wire gets in the rd :lol:

    Erm....well it depends, Lips has difficulties and stuff. Singstar is quite hard...although I was pretty damn drunk. The PS3 marketplace is cheap

    Its just got that new feel to it, Singstars been knocking around since 07. The mic's on Singstar are wired, or the ones we used were, Lips mic's are wireless and are just plain funky. My mate was able to do upstairs to the toilet with his mic and still sing - don't even ask why he took the mic to the bathroom, it was a very, very drunken NYE

    HA HA! That is classic, no excuses for pausing the game now!

    Yep, also, one person could just be singing a song and all you have to do is literally grab the other mic coming back from the kitchen with a drink, shake the mic about and it lights up and you can join it....also, the people sitting around watching or talking can use the controllers to make drum noises, people clapping and stuff....its soooo funny

    Do you know if you can get more tracks for it? I am very glad you are saying it is better cos I don't really wanna shell out for a PS3, too much money and not many games different as far as I can see.

    lips tracks can be dl. i think they are bringing more songs out as time goes by..not alot out atm. but it did only come out at xmas.. plus you can add ure own fav songs to the game - they just dont have lyrics on the screen that way, but if u know the song well enough then its still fun..(if that made any sense)

    I think they have 3 different starter packs but don't quote me. Theres also a few available on the xbox live marketplace, I think they were planning on releasing at least a song a week, but you can put your own music on using an iPod or an external HDD, it just dosen't have the lyrics or the video on screen. :thumbsup:

    See that's my problem, singstar is the one I haven't played barely at all! In fairness I don't think I can afford a PS3 at the min anyway so I'm glad everyone else is loving lips!
