*The upcoming dancing-and-singing “Michael Jackson The Experience” video game will feature such iconic hits from the King of Pop as “Bad,” “Beat It” and “Billie Jean,” according to the game’s publisher Ubisoft.
The company announced the song list Wednesday at the Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany. The title is scheduled to be released in November for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii, as well as the handheld consoles Nintendo DSand PlayStation Portable.
As previously reported, “Michael Jackson The Experience” will be among the first to use Kinect and Move, the respective motion-detecting camera systems for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3 due out this holiday season.
“Your goal is to dance like Michael,” said Ubisoft’s marketing vice president Tony Key. “Do what the guy on the screen is doing and you’re there. It’ll score you based on the quality of your performance.”
Other tunes for the game centered on the late King of Pop include “Earth Song,” “The Girl Is Mine,” “Who Is It” and “Workin’ Day And Night.”
