First Lips DLC goes live today

With more due next week.

Microsoft has announced that four new songs will be available today for its new karaoke game Lips, and that add-ons will be priced at 160 Microsoft Points (GBP 1.36 / EUR 1.92) per downloadable song. The four available today are:

  • Adele - "Chasing Pavements"
  • Coldplay - "Violet Hill"
  • Estelle - "No Substitute Love"
  • Jason Mraz - "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)"

Not content with that, Microsoft has already lined up three more for next Friday, 28th November, at the same price. Those songs will be:

  • Smashmouth - "All Star"
  • Supertramp - "Give a Little Bit"
  • Vanessa Carlton - "A Thousand Miles"

Lips itself is out in Europe today. It's Microsoft's answer to SingStar, including two wireless microphones, a similar karaoke system and some other novelty gameplay bits, with 40 songs to sing.

However, we were rather down on it once the initial sheen wore off, as you can see in our 5/10 Lips review from the other day. Hopefully as the catalogue of DLC improves it will make more sense, but flaws in the fundamentals may get in the way. We shall see and take a more considered look once things have matured a bit.
