The first Lips reviews are in, and Eurogamer’s score’s not going to look pretty on anyone’s average. Snip from the piece:
The irony is that SingStar has glitches as well, now and then, and casual gamers seem to put up with this, whereas Microsoft – architect of the Red Rings – has little goodwill left to cash in on that front. Casual or not, though, you should only buy this if you can’t get SingStar.
Everything so far:
It’s out on Friday for 360.

After the break. We have nothing to say on the matter.

“I’ve got it!” shouted Jacinda across the salad. Michael looked up from his tablet PC and flicked a cuff. A glazed woman ticked a tucked eye over a celery stick from the next table.
“It’s called Lips, right?”
I wish she’d fucking shutup, thought Michael.
“Why don’t we, like, have a pair of walking lips? Through – process, process – a wood! And across a highway! And then into a party! And the lips are, like, singing Take on Me! And then a guy starts singing Take on Me! And everyone, like, loves him! Because he’s singing Take on Me!”
I want to kill you and eat you, thought Michael.
“I can see it,” he said. “It’s perfect in its literal depiction. MS will go breadbin for it.”
And lo, the TV ad after the break was born. That’ll be fifty grand, please.

According to this MCV story, Microsoft is setting up camp in London’s Leicester Square this weekend, the main point of which is to show off Lips and You’re in the Movies.
It’s all part of the Xbox Trial tour, which will also visit Glasgow (November 8-9), Newcastle (November 15-16), Sheffield (November 22-23) and Bristol (November 29-30).
Should be fantabulous. More through there.

Update: Official press release after the break.
Over at Joystiq. The track list isn’t bad, actually. There’s Radiohead, Johnny Cash and a bit of Duran Duran too. However, we must stress, that we’re far too manly and butch to partake in such a game, but you lot might like it, and we can respect that. Just.
There’s a video over there too, if you’re interested. Game’s been confirmed for a November 21 release in Europe.

Apparently if you pre-order your copy of Singstar clone, Lips, with Gamestop and/or Amazon.com, you get a code that allows you to download one “free song every week for two months,” writes Microsoft mouth-piece, Gamerscore Blog.
The Zune Team are picking them out for you, apparently. So you’ll have to make do with what you’re given. Like we had to do when we were growing up. So deal with it.
No similar offer for Europe announced at this time. Games out November 19 in the US and November 21 in Europe (dates unconfirmed).

According to this Siliconera story, Microsoft has rated five different language versions of Lips in Europe.
Apparently, SKUs are planned in English; Italian; Spanish; “Swiss, Austrian, and Luxembourgian”; and “Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish”. Not really sure about that last one, but there we are.
More through the link.

X3F’s posted a shot of the Lips packing, showing the game’s two sparkly microphones and a “wickedy wick” picture on the box. Astonishing. The karaoke game’s out later this year.

Earlier this evening the existence of Xbox Live “Avatars” was apparently leaked through a research firm called Intellisponse. Through the site’s backend videogaming247 can reveal that “Lips”, the mysterious brand that was expected to be announced at the Microsoft Gamer’s Day in May, appears to be a Singstar-style game.
From the source:
“Lips is a music and singing game that includes 30 songs, 2 wireless interactive microphones, the ability to use and sing your own music or download songs from an online service. Designed to have fun with friends, Lips scores you on your singing (pitch, rhythm and tune) and your overall performance.”
Other features are as follows:
The songs include a mix of popular songs like Madonna, and local songs specific to the United Kingdom.
2 Wireless Interactive Microphones:
Wireless mics are interactive, with lights on the shaft of the microphone that pulse to the rhythm of your voice, and motion sensors that allow you to dance, move or swing to score points.
Use your own music:
Take songs from CD or your iPod, and upload them into the game. The game will reduce the vocals so you can sing along and be heard, and score you on whether you’re in tune. Lyrics can also be added directly into the song to sing along.
Hundreds of music videos with lyrics are available online for a small fee, which you sing and be scored on.
