    basicly i work for game and ive been wondering with lips no 1 hit i think it would be a great idea for lips to be on xbox live to sing against other fans online that love competition and love to sing in general, my self i like singstar.
    lips is great too, the shaking of the mics is a good idea but it doesnt have good songs and other game party modes like singstar, im a big fan of microsoft and think the 360 is a fantastic console id prefer it than the ps3 i think the shaking of the mic is brill its something differrent, i think lips on xbox live will be a good idea i think it will sell more in the game retail business,
    hopefully lips 2 will be better than singstar.

    i hope it dont come ascross as a bad remark to microsoft about singstar it is not a bad remark
    its just i think it can do so much better the first lips seems like thers something missing.
    i dont know if its just me i think singing games can be fun when thers loads of people together on all occasions, besides that i am loyal to 360 and microsoft.


    ive had a couple of customers approaching me about abes oddesy are microsoft gonna be making a new game of abe? it was a popular game years ago is there gonna be another?

    Thank you for your time
