Michael Jackson: The Experience – Xbox 360, PS3 Release Date Delayed

By Alan Ng - Sep 13, 2010

Were you looking forward to learning how to moonwalk on the Xbox 360 or PS3? If you were, you are in for a disappointment, as we can confirm that Michael Jackson: The Experience has been delayed into 2011.

As reported from VG247, the game was originally due out on the mentioned consoles on November 25th, but Ubisoft has explained that they needed more development time to implement Move and Kinect support properly.

Here is the statement in full from the developer: “We’re giving our teams more time to develop the Kinect and Move versions to ensure we deliver awesome experiences that take full advantage of the new technologies.”

There is some good news though. While the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions have been delayed till early 2011, the game is still due out on other platforms, i.e the Wii, DS and PSP versions of the game.

Let us know your thoughts on this delay. You can’t blame Ubisoft for wanting to ensure the game isn’t rushed out can you?

  • Wii is an inferior console. They’re just giving nintendo an opportunity to sell some copies.. If not, xbox move verions gonna swat it off the system.. Like a fly with 1 white glove.

    According to an article on gamestop. They are adding more to enhance the game. Kinect users will also be able to add singing (from what I read) as well as dancing. and A feature where you will be able to see yourself in the arena dancing the moves to the songs. Pretty cool in my opinion

      For whatever console it is…..That’s what the whole game is about!! :-) you maybe able to do a couple different things on each one but that’s how all games are

    man, that sucks. well they should add something extra for making Xbox 360 and Playstation users wait…..like an extra track/song. that would only fair.

    I think what happened is that Microsoft dumped some money on this yet again. Ubisoft is having troubles with the Kinect (as Microsoft is too) and instead of releasing it just for the PS3 are holding off until Kinect is ready.
