PS2 Singstar Microphone with Rock Band Xbox 360

Q: Can a SingStar Playstation 2 microphone work on the Xbox 360 version of Rock Band?
A: No.

Rockband’s official answer is “we think all USB mics work with Rock Band.” Apparently this is exempt.

    Another similar question is, “Do Guitar Hero guitars work with Rock Band?” Some say “yes” while others say “no”. Can anyone prove it?

    @Jeff: Yes they do. Also, the Xbox 360 controller headset actually works as a microphone for Rock band… I was playing it a little last night with that.

    Maybe I should specify that I was talking about the PS3. My house mate has tried to use the PS3 Guitar Hero guitar with PS3 Rock Band and it was a no go. I don’t see why the Xbox 360 versions would be compatible and the PS3 versions would not be compatible.

    The Guitar Hero 3 controls DO work with Rock Band on the Xbox360

    I’ve been trying the Singstar mics and they don’t seem to be working 🙁

    For the GH guitars on Rockdand:

    The GH Guitars (GH2 & 3) do work on RB 360 as they are using the MS technologie to communicate with the 360.

    The GH Guitars on RB PS3 do not work because RB uses a custom wireless system that is not compatible with GH Guitars (wich uses also a proprietary system). EA wanted to adress a patch to make things compatible, but Activison blocked the release of this patch due to licensing issues.

    So that’s the story why RB on 360 do work with GH Guitars and why the same isn’t true on PS3

    If you want to go cheap, pick up a copy of the game Boogie for PS2 with mic, got mine on sale at Best Buy for $7. It is the same Logitech microphone that comes with Rock Band just branded differently.

    And of course alternatively, the Xbox 360 headset seems to do an OK job.

    aimie, you COULD try putting everything you have to say in ONE message for a change. 2 word posts are pretty trollish. And I’d say serves you right for getting mics that don’t work, since you BOUGHT (not brought) them first, then came here calling everyone providing good info a dickhead. WTG.

    But thanks for the info.. I was pretty sure the ps2 singstar mics WOULD work with xbox 360 rockband since any USB mic should do, but this info just saved me alot of trouble. Gotta go with the headset then 🙂
