Following its bare-bones announcement at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, “Michael Jackson: The Game” has been dubbed Just Michael Jackson Michael Jackson: The Experience. The Experience will place players in the shiny shoes of Jackson himself, reliving some of his most iconic performances using the Wii, PlayStation Move or Xbox 360′s Kinect motion tech to dance along with an on-screen prompt. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will also include an option to sing along, using Kinect’s built-in mic or a standalone microphone. Additionally, DS and PSP versions of the game will feature Ouendan-esque rhythm-tapping gameplay.

According to Eurogamer, The Experience is due out in November, which should give us enough time to figure out the meaning of the name. Is it because we’re getting the full Michael Jackson “experience? ” Or, is it possible that the game includes an experience-based character progression system? If so, we’re putting all our points in the Toe Stand specialization tree.
