News: But no Disney love for the Xbox 360. Wait a minute...
In a strange announcement, Disney Interactive Studios has announced that Disney Sing It: Pop Hits will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Wii this Fall. There was no explanation given for why the Xbox 360 would not be receiving the third game in the Disney Sing It series even after the first two came to Microsoft's console. As with the last game in the series, Pop Hits will be developed by British game development house Zoe Mode.
The game will include 30 songs and music videos from artists popular with Radio Disney fans: Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, Colbie Caillat, Demi Lovato, Hannah Montana, Jesse McCartney, Coldplay and OneRepublic. That's right, Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus are considered different people.
Pop Hits will include a variety of expanded features over its predecessors including:
Sing It Encore: Record and play back performances, and apply special effects
Run the Risk: Attempt to outbid opponents on predicted scores
Duet Mode: Harmonize with friends to earn higher scores
Unlockables: Earn pins and themes to customize console wallpapers
It will also feature a singing tutorial mode known as Sing It Pro:
Led by Disney Channel star Tiffany Thornton from ?Sonny With A Chance,? this series of voice exercises runs through the basics of pitch and breathing, all the way up to harmonizing in a duet and riffing. These exercises are designed to teach players how to sing so they can unlock special rewards based on vocal improvements as they play.
We'll have more soon.
