We're certainly hitting the high notes at this year's E3 on CVG, having just returned from the first reveal of Singstar on Sony's next-gen PS3.

We'll be uploading footage shortly for you to contemplate but Sony revealed during an impressive presentation that two brand new microphones will be released alongside the PS3 launch title and they'll look sleek, silver and slimline and feature increased sensitivity compared to the current model.

Even more intriguingly, one will come in a standard USB wired version but there'll also be a wireless Bluetooth model for full falsetto freedom.

As to what you'll be singing on the PS3, well it looks like that will be entirely up to you, with a new iTunes-style service giving you full control over your PS3 playlists and karaoke classic selections. This was demoed, with a song taking perhaps less than 30 seconds to come down the wires. And while Sony refused to give an absolute confirmation of pricing, they did say it would cost no more than a typical iTunes track, with a flat rate guaranteed across the board.

Various themed song packages may also be on offer on download, but once you've bought your SingStar package, don't expect further song packs or disks to be heading your way. Although this is yet to be fully confirmed, Sony's current thinking is that you'll buy all further songs through the download service.

We'll be warbling more Singstar goodness your way soon, including a movie of the presentation.
