The Power of Ubisoft’s Player Projection on Kinect™ for Xbox 360®

Developed by Ubisoft
Montréal, Michael Jackson The Experience using the sensor for Kinect for Xbox 360, will give fans of the King of Pop the feeling of actually
performing in Michael Jackson’s shoes.  Ubisoft’s proprietary Player Projection technology projects
the player on-screen and into the game itself, where their body will be tracked
so they will see their true movements and steps reproduced in the game.  This level of
immersion has never been seen before and as players are surrounded by
environments inspired by the music videos and live performances of each song, they
will truly live the experience. The player’s performance will trigger effects,
visuals and even the music itself as fans match their talent to that of the
greatest artist of all time, whose music, lyrics and stunningly innovative
dance moves continue to excite fans in every corner of the world.

Michael Jackson The Experience for Kinect™ for Xbox 360 sensor is more than
just a game as it features a combination of dancing, singing and freestyle
moves. The player’s full-on singing and dancing performance takes place in jaw-dropping
sets with incredible lighting, special effects, and a completely energized million-strong
crowd just waiting to cheer on every move.
