Festive songs available for Lips

Elvis this week, Kylie next, more.

Microsoft has decided to celebrate Christmas with a number of downloadable festive songs for Lips, some of which are out today.

Each song promises "a unique custom holiday video to really bring out the spirit of the season", along with other custom videos.

"Pricing starts at 160 Microsoft Points", which is GBP 1.36 / EUR 1.92. That certainly brings out the spirit of the season for our money.

Lips, which launched in Europe last month, is an iNiS-developed Xbox 360 alternative to Sony's multi-million-selling SingStar, which offers wireless microphones and various gameplay tweaks beyond the traditional pitch-and-rhythm singalong stuff.

You can see what we made of it in our Lips review or, if you already know, just download some songs, innit.
