Yes, but when? The passes are shown when a search is done, but it says the app isn't available, and there's no download from the 'Karaoke' page.

Probably won't be intrested in this unless I had company over. Just one thing concerns me though.. There is an achievement (INCOMING TRANSMISSION) which states, "Added a song via Smart Glass?"

This is going to put alot of completionists off if they can't complete the game because they don't have a smartglass device. It's just as unfair as having a Kinect related achievement that stops non kinect owners from completing their core games. Anyhow I'll wait for the achievement guide and roadmap to find out more.

The other thing that kinda annoys me is why is this even an app? Then again, why are Nat Geo TV and Kinect Seseme Street under apps when they should be either in the Games Marketplace or at the very least listed in Kinect Fun labs. Microsoft really doesn't know how to organize anything if their life depended on it.

On a side note, Video Kinect does not show up under "My Apps" anymore! The only way to start a video chat with someone is to click on it under "Browse Apps" which is really kinda annoying.. just proves my point that MS lacks organizational skills.

Oh, don't worry, there are Kinect-exclusive achievements too! (All the posing ones are Kinect-only)

I'm making the guide for TA so if no one starts writing one for here soon I'll begin working on it. This is actually an easy game just a big grind.... just like Lips was nothing but grind.

I think this is a smaller grind than Lips though haha

If people really are put off buying games due to an achievement that's sad.
You know the whole buying games for fun stuff?

Even more so a free game that requires a free App that just about every phone today can have and Ive not seen many controller based games with Kinect achievements[if any?]

I know this is an achievement site but i do feel many have forgotten why they got into games in the first place and now look at the achievements before anything else when deciding on a game just in case they cant get one that will add to their online score that does nothing.

Madden 13.

I could maybe understand people being mad if Smart Glass was WP only, but it's not. Then they'd have to upgrade to the far superior WP7 or WP8.

Let me explain:

I probably wont play this anyhow as my core games and arcade games take first priority. Only if I have enough time to finish my kinect stuff before the next console arrives will I be playing this. I am an old school gamer who plays for fun first and achievements 2nd... But when I see one achievement that can stop me from completing the game 100% that's a major turn off bud. I already have enough uncompleted games, and I don't want anymore.. especially for a game like that that I will only play once my backlog of games are done.

Also it doesn't matter if Smart Glass is free or not because I don't own a smart phone and probably will be picking up another prepaid flip phone instead.. so when I see an achievement like that, unless I really want to play the game, I will avoid it due to that fact alone.

Core games that say, "Better with Kinect" shouldn't have Kinect related achievements for them. Games that require smartglass or uploading something to facebook should also be done away with as not everyone has a facebook account or Kinect.. In otherwords, there should never be any achievement that can't be obtained due to not having a whole other device or peice of hardware.

Believe it or not, I actually do totally understand your point of veiw though.. I may be a completionist, but I fully agree, people nowadays care more for achievements than they do about the actual gameplay, and that my friend, is sad.
