A Michael Jackson Video Game?
The late MJ will be dancing and singing his way into people’s living rooms this holiday season.
This Christmas, you’ll be able to dance and sing right next to Michael Jackson in the new video game being developed by Ubisoft.
Yeah, that’s not creepy at all.
Those in control of Michael’s estate signed off on the game, which will be a type of “dance karaoke” for Wii and Xbox 360 users. Microsoft has developed new controller-free technology called Kinect to rival the Wii, and it will be used in the game so that Xbox users can dance around their living rooms as well.
In the game, Michael dances and sings his most popular songs, and players are challenged to mimic his iconic moves for a high score. Players can also sing his hits karaoke-style, and there’s even an autotune feature to manipulate your voice.
Although he’s been gone for quite some time now, MJ sure is a busy man lately. We wonder if those in charge of his estate have his best interests in mind, or something that’s a little more green… like money. (TMZ)
