For the first time in the console’s history, Microsoft has allowed an Xbox 360 game to charge players by the hour.
The new Karaoke application for Xbox 360 charges players by the hour for access to a library of 8,000 songs.
In Karaoke fans will sing along to scrolling lyrics on screen while their avatar performs the song on stage with a full complement of stage props, backup band and an adoring audience. The more songs are sung and poses struck, the more moola, props, fans and fun are earned as achievements are awarded.
Karaoke for Xbox 360 will have a selection of free sample songs that will change frequently. The game will be released on Xbox LIVE in time for the holidays.
