Lips: I Love The 80s is a karaoke video game for the Xbox 360, and the third follow-up to the original Lips. I Love The 80s was developed by iNiS and published by Microsoft Game Studios. The game, like all the other titles in the main Lips series, features the use of motion sensitive wireless microphones and like Party Classics, the ability to use USB microphones as well.
Speculation of the title started on February 11, 2010, while its existence was finally confirmed via Xbox Front. This makes I ❤ the 80s the fourth game in the English-language Lips series and overall the sixth Lips soundtrack.
This is also the first main Lips title not to be released in North America, however, some songs have been released as DLC in the United States and Canada.
Gameplay Changes Edit
The live Leaderboards during singing no longer start listing rankings from 1000 onwards, but rather from the 10,000th place.
As expected, all songs from the soundtrack were hits during the 80s or late 70s. Such songs include The Look Of Love by ABC, Shout by Tears For Fears, Come On Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners, Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood and dance classics such as Video Killed The Radio Star by The Buggles and Blue Monday '88 by New Order. The game includes the usual 40 songs per disc. More than half of the soundtrack is available for download worldwide as of March 2011 as separate DLC.
All downloadable content released during the first month of the game's launch was 80s themed, with the Lips Music Store seeing major releases such as Straight Up, Strangelove, The Safety Dance and Major Tom (Coming Home), among many others.
The achievements listed on early March also gave the community an insight into a few more tracks planned for the game. The final tracklist was finally revealed on March 8, 2010. Click here for a complete list.
