If ever there was any evidence that Sony, as whole, took South Africa just a little more seriously than Microsoft as a viable territory for video gaming, you’d imagine it would be the implementation of PSN day and date with the PS3’s local launch. Yes, the PSN was functional on Sony’s console right out of the box; no 4 year wait for local services like Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Still, that’s not it.

No. What’s most impressive about Sony’s attitude to South Africa is their imminent release of a localised version of their Karaoke title, Singstar. In what’s likely to become a smash hit and party game of choice across JHB’s east rand and the whole of Pretoria, Singstar will be available in Afrikaans.

No disrespect to our Afrikaans readers; I’d rather eat broken glass from the floor of a public restroom than play it , but you guys? You’re gonna love it. List of artists whose songs will be featured after the jump.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
