We broke the news that the highly regarded microphone bundled with Microsoft's "Lips" karaoke game would not work with "Guitar Hero" or "Rock Band" at launch.
Harmonix and MTV Games have now addressed gamers' concern over the lack of compatibility, and there's good news to be shared.
"Microsoft and MTV Games are working together to ensure that consumers will be able to use the wireless mics from ‘Lips’ with ‘Rock Band 2’ after launch," said the companies in an e-mailed statement. "More details on timing to come. Harmonix and MTV Games strive for all third-party controllers to work with the 'Rock Band' games, fitting with Harmonix’ open-platform philosophy for controllers.”
Sounds like we'll have a patch in the coming weeks! Will you use the "Lips" mic?
