A star is born every minute at Sony's school of rock (10 Nov 2005)
This collection of software, also known as Pop Star Boot Camp, rewards and punishes players for singing, dancing or playing within the confines of a narrow margin of right and wrong. The games effectively act like a voice coach, choreographer or pop producer. A wannabe pop princess can load up the Darkness on SingStar, and record herself hitting those high notes while performing EyeToy Groove-trained dance moves. Anna, her digital personal trainer on EyeToy Kinetic, will give her hell if she misses a day of exercise, because, after all, she's got to look good for the paparazzi.
