Singstar is getting a free-to-play reboot later this year, following a free stint on PS3. Sony has confirmed it will discuss the project at the F2P Summit event in October.

The presentation, titled “Rebooting SingStar as a Free to Play Game,” will be delivered by Sony London Studios director Dave Ranyard.

In a statement, Ranyard said of the reboot, “Many of the best [free-to-play] experiences are built and designed from the ground up with F2P in mind from the start. Game and app stores are littered with the ghosts of games where F2P is a bolt-on. But what do you do if you have a strong game experience which you truly believe could become a great F2P game?”

On the impending Singstar relaunch, he added, “Phase 1 was to launch SingStar as an app pinned to the PS3’s cross media bar last October,” he said. “Phase 2 is a complete redesign and overhaul of the whole game structure and UI for the digital and F2P age, which is due for release later this year.”

F2P Summit kicks off in London Thursday, October 10.
