SingStar backwards compatibility arrives

SingStar PS3 to work with PS2 discs Tues.

Three Speech has just reported the news that all Singstar fans wanted to hear: full backwards compatibility for Singstar PS3 arrives tomorrow.

An automatic, free online update at 10am GMT tomorrow will allow the PS3 version of Singstar to play songs from any PS2 Singstar disc.

"Start your SingStar PS3 session as normal by loading any SingStar PS3 disc - then, you'll be able to swap it for any PS2 disc for the rest of the session," says Three Speech.

Now all we need are those wireless mics. Still, Ellie will be delighted - not least because it provides us with an excuse to link to her extraordinary Singstar footage again.
