Electronic Arts bowed the beta version of The Sims On Stage, an 'interactive online playground' computer game that allows players to record and share karaoke songs, among other performances, and post them online.

The game is a direct evolution of EA's acquisition of Singshot this February. Singshot is an online karaoke contest and social networking community that EA has integrated into the Sims franchise. The game offers a list of well-known songs in various genres, licensed through major labels and publishers. Users can also post their recordings outside the Sims community in blogs, social networking sites and other outlets.
