Singstar is set to get full backwards compatibility from tomorrow, something Singstar fans have been waiting for for some time.

A free automatic online update will be available from 10am on 17 December, which will allow the PS3 Singstar to play songs from any PS2 Singstar disc.

"Start your SingStar PS3 session as normal by loading any SingStar PS3 disc - then, you'll be able to swap it for any PS2 disc for the rest of the session", said Three Speech, the semi-official PlayStation site that announced the good news.

All this, just in time for Christmas karaoke sessions. Bring it on.
