Michael Jackson: The Experience Kinect Launch Trailers

Michael Jackson: The Experience was a big hit for Ubisoft on Nintendo Wii, DS and Sony’s PSP last fall. Given the game’s design that lets you dance like the King of Pop, it’s better suited to take advantage of Sony’s PS3 Move and, even more so, Xbox 360 Kinect.

To coincide the Michael Jackson: The Experience’s launch on PS3 Move and Xbox 360 Kinect today, Ubisoft has passed along a trio of trailers that highlight how the Kinect controls work. The videos are for the songs Black or White, Don’t Stop and Ghosts.

As you might guess from the Kinect gameplay footage, the game uses the same proprietary on-screen player projection system that Ubisoft’s Your Shape: Fitness Evolved does. The Kinect camera captures the player or players from head-to-toe and projects their image into the game. It’s not a crystal clear high definition projection but does get the job done.

Also of note in the new Kinect and Move versions of Michael Jackson: The Experience are a trio of songs not found in the previously released versions: Blood on the Dance Floor, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, and Stranger in Moscow.
