SingStar gets voice control, Trophies

Courtesy of new update released today. 

Sony is releasing an update introducing voice control to SingStar PS3.

With update 3.01 you'll be able to pick tracks just by saying the song title into the microphone. You'll also be able to earn Trophies with titles like Keep it Cool, All Eyes on You and Super Singer Gold. And finally, the My SingStar Online profile page is getting a makeover.

The update is being released across PAL territories later today, and you can expect the SingStore and My SingStar Online to be unavailable for an estimated eight hours while they make the magic happen.

The voice control feature won't come into effect until 22nd April, though. From then on you'll be able to download it from SingStore Extras, or buy a copy of SingStar Pop Edition which will have the feature built-in. It's out next Friday and comes bundled with wireless mics, which is really quite very exciting obviously.
