King of Pop on Kinect

Michael Jackson: The Experience launched on Wii, DS and PSP in late 2010 but its Kinect appearance was delayed, presumably for the addition of "the extra level of polish that fans demand". Now Ubisoft has announced the game's official release date for everyone to assess the depth of polish: April 12th in North America, April 14th in Europe.

It's not just new technology that'll help to improve the experience: Kinect owners get two new songs, Blood on the Dance Floor and I Just Can't Stop Loving You, with Ubisoft promising new songs on the way too.

There's another exclusive feature to Kinect, which we'll let Ubisoft describe:

Ubisoft’s proprietary Player Projection technology projects the player on-screen and into the game itself. The player’s body is tracked, allowing them to see their true movements and steps reproduced in the game.

Michael Jackson moonwalks to Kinect on April 12th and 14th in North America and Europe, respectively.

I want to see the review first before getting the game. If it gets at least a 7 (hopefully an 8 at least) I'll get it :3

IMO, Dance Central has set the bar for dance-themed Kinect games. It needs to be AT LEAST as good to even consider.

Well for me, I still enjoy Dance Masters (since I still like that para para style) so as long as the controls don't suck, it should be a good game (plus I hope it is so my brother can chip in, haha).

I don't see the point in this game. Why not just add Michael Jackson songs to Dance Central?

I cannot wait to buy this game! I love MJ and hopefully some of the profits from this game will go to his estate. I'm interested in their "proprietary" tracker too; hopefully it will live up to the hype.

Those "realistic" backup dancers look reeeeeally creepy with higher definition.
