The problem with karaoke video games is you’re limited to a selection of songs on a disc. Joysound Wii tackles this issue by offering users all you can sing tickets. Pay 300 Wii Points and you get access to a library of 30,000 karaoke songs for 24 hours. That’s not a bad price for an impulse purchase.
Hudson also has long term payment plans like 72 hours for 500 Wii Points, 30 days for 1,000 Wii Points, and 90 days for 2,000 Wii Points. For less than the cost of going to a karaoke bar on a weekend you can get one month of Joysound.
The Joysound Wii retail package also comes with a disc that has seventy popular karaoke songs so you can still use Joysound even if you cancel your subscription.
Only one microphone comes with the 6,090 yen ($65) package. A second one is sold separately for 2,940 yen ($34). Since karaoke is a social experience Joysound Wii also has a handful of multiplayer mini-games for parties like bingo and… last minute orange juice pouring. Non-singing players can also liven up songs by using the remotes to make tambourine and clapping sounds.
Joysound Wii is more like a karaoke box in a box instead of being a karaoke video game.
