Lips mic patch coming to Rock Band 2

OK, everyone out there who bought Lips for the opportunity to sing along with hit tracks, such as Duffy’s soulful “Mercy” and Rihanna’s irresistible “Umbrella,” please raise your hand. Anyone? Is this thing on? Check, check. One-two, one-two. Let’s try this again. Everybody out there who bought Lips hoping its sexy wireless mics would be compatible with Rock Band 2, raise your hands. There you are! We’ve got some news for you. Ahem…

According to the MTV Multiplayer blog, Microsoft and MTV Games are working together on a patch that will enable you to finally bring your wireless vocal stylings to Rock Band 2. “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,” said the companies in an e-mailed statement.

Now we just need to see if we can still look appropriately metal singing “Colony of Birchmen” with a pulsing, LED-encrusted mic.
