“Yano also said that Lips could interact with music devices (he name-checked the Zune and iPod as examples), which will let users sing along to their own song library. Unfortunately, no further details were announced, so we'll have to wait and see whether music-device interaction will simply use the Lips microphones to let you sing, or whether it will actually grade your performance as well.”
At E3 yesterday, Microsoft had a ton of announcements that mostly affected the 360. While those were all exciting (If you have a Zune you better have a 360!) there was one that pertained to the Zune as well. Microsoft has apparently decided to jump into the music game with a karaoke game for the 360. The interesting thing to note is that it will also work with personal music devices.
Now there would be an absolutely awesome use for the Zune Pass. If Lips were to be successful then I can see, in this video game, er game, of one-upmanship that the other studios would copy popular features. A Guitar Hero or Rock Band game taking that feature? Or how about a future Lips game that was a full band arrangement? If they do this right it could be a really cool way to use your Zune content!
