    Ubisoft has announced that Michael Jackson The Experience is now available for the XBox360 and Playstation 3. Michael Jackson The Experience allows players to learn how to dance and sing like the King of Pop and perform to more than two dozen of his songs including some of his iconic hits. Fans will get a chance to play with their family and friends via the multiplayer mode on both platforms where players can jump right in to dance and sing.

    “We believe Michael Jackson The Experience for Kinect and Move will continue to build on the success and momentum of the Wii version,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. “Michael Jackson The Experience is really a must-have game for fans and gives everyone the chance to learn his timeless routines, signature moves and lyrics as they perform some of his greatest hits.”

    Said John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of The Estate of Michael Jackson: “Families and fans have shown they love Michael Jackson The Experience. We are thrilled that they will now be able to feel and perform Michael’s music and dancing using Kinect and Move. Michael always believed in constantly exploring and embracing cutting-edge technologies to give his fans opportunities to experience his artistry in ways that had never been done before.”

    The Xbox 360 version of Michael Jackson The Experience touts Ubisoft’s proprietary Player Projection technology that uses Kinect for Xbox 360’s built-in sensor to capture the player and put them front and center on-screen in the game dancing on a variety of stages inspired by Michael’s unforgettable music videos and stage performances. Players will be scored on their dance moves and how closely they are able to emulate the choreography with their entire body, no controller required. They will enjoy a full performance experience, as they will also be scored on their ability to sing along to the most popular Michael Jackson tracks using the Kinect for Xbox 360’s built-in microphone. The multiplayer party mode allows up to four players to join in individually or in teams of two to work together to see which team will be crowned the winner.

    The PlayStation 3 version of Michael Jackson The Experience showcases the HD visuals, exciting gameplay and precise controls via the Move motion controller. An exclusive feature gives players the ability to upload a photo of themselves playing the game directly to their Facebook page from the game. The variety of multiplayer options allows up to four players to dance or sing simultaneously and the game adapts to the hardware available.
