Michael Jackson: The Experience Delayed

Owww! Michael Jackson: The Experience has been delayed and will no longer make its proposed autumn 2010 release slot. Instead, the MJ game will now arrive in early 2011, so you'll have to wait a little longer for your dose of the late King of Pop on Kinect.

Ubisoft's Michael Jackson game is set to feature iconic dance routines performed by the man himself and a variety of songs that you can crotch grab and 'chamone' along to. "Billie Jean", "Beat It", "Bad", "Who Is It", "Workin' Day and Night", "The Girl is Mine" and "Earth Song" have all been confirmed so far for the game's tracklist.

Your Shape, Motion Sports and Fighters Uncaged will now lead the charge for Ubisoft on Kinect, whereas Michael Jackson: The Experience is now slated for a Q1 2011 release.

America needs its own "Top Gear" as much as Michael Jackson needs his own MMO.
Guess who?!

I would like to see this game moon walk off of a cliff and never release. How can people forget this monster molested children and then paid off anyone involved to keep them quiet? His death doesn't make his crimes go away. He was a disgusting person in life and remains a disgusting person in death.

@11 You so realise the kid he paid off admitted he was lying? If you were fragile and people kept taking you to court trying to get money from you of course you're gonna pay them off if it's making you ill. He was never proven guilty btw so don't state stuff like that as fact until you know otherwise. Although you convey sourness towards him as though you were molested...

@8 I hate Hitler and he's dead I also hate MJ I realy don't think pedophiles and rapist deserve life (I know he never raped anyone but it fits in with it) and I totaly agree with 11 he was a sick disturbed man I don't see why they give someone like him a game there are plenty of other dead (and alive) music legends that DESERVE a game mj doesn't deserve respect I only regret how fast his death was there was totaly not enough suffering involved so he lived with a shitty family that he hated most of. I got news so does everyone else the only difference is that people (for some reason) like his music so he got rich and was able to get away with anything he wanted I guess I'm just gonna have to tell him when I see him in hell

Why is there so much hate for him ? He was never proven to have molested children and the kid he was supposed to have molested admitted to lying so wtf ? And how can he not deserve a game, cmon he was the king of pop, name 1 other music star who could dance like mj and be able to have that many dance moves to make a whole game dedicated to them ? ~ RIP The king of pop

Let #5 be the ignorant shmuck he is. Everyone can speculate all they want. The man was found innocent and every case was suspicious on the "victims" side. It will never erase his status as The King of Pop. The man is an icon and a legend and will forever be remembered more for his music and inspiration on a generation than some losers looking for a payouts allegations.
Not interested in Kinect but this is going to be a pretty hot ticket. Jackson was a coreographers dream come true.

What an absolute c**t you are yourself.

MJ was NEVER found guilty for molestation you asshole. And as pointed out the kid was PROVEN to be lying.

I now declare Vandiloo a child molesterer, until you disprove it you are and will forever be one

I'm sorry but everyone saying they aren't allowed to hate someone because they are dead is being a total hypocrite.

He hates MJ. I bet you hate Hitler.

Both are dead. According to your logic you shouldn't hate someone who is dead.

So if he can't hate MJ, you can't hate Hitler.

@ 30 - Don't even give 16 the benefit of the doubt. Michael Jackson was NOT a rapist/pedophile is what the retard fails to realize. How to prove it - Macauly Culkin. The kid admitted to basically being MJ's best friend early on and has since admitted to drugs, suicide thoughts and much else. I think he wouldn't neglect saying the king of pop touched him which he never did.

@ 29 - Get a clue you moron. MJ gets a bad rep for being "accused" of pedophelia but every moronic rapper gets arrested daily for gun/drug possession or an assault charge and they get touted as "Role Models"? Give me a break. Most rappers end up dead before 35 b/c they want to act all "hardcore and gangster". Serves 'em right and good riddance. I laugh at every rapper killed or arrested. Tupac was nothing but a grimey wannabe gangster. Yet he releases a record every year.

I might pick this game up when it gets released, it looks fun and the songs are obviously classics and still lots of fun to this day.

As for the people making fun/insulting a dead person, please grow up or leave this website, speaking ill of the dead really shows how much of a pathetic human being you really are.

Why is there hate for Michael Jackson...oh that's right, he was batshit crazy and dangled a baby off of a balcony. Even if your opinion of his music is positive, no one in their right mind should have any respect for the man himself. I couldn't be happier that his sick ass is in the ground.

@ 33 - The man lost his wits over the years yes, but prior to that, he's still a legend more so than any single musician or actor. I may not have been a fan of his antics (but then again, while not making excuses, the kid had no childhood, was beaten by his father - he admitted it - and after the reports and allegations, he was bound to snap or kill himself), I will always respect the impact he had on the music industry and the fact that he was a great humanitarian. Just misunderstood. Then he lost it. Still, no group or any of the haters could ever slander his name from the legendary status. There are only 2 royalties in the music industry and not a one of them share the words Diva or Kanye. Elvis and Michael Jackson are the true kings.

God they are milking his death and "greatness" gotta pay for that solid gold casket and funneral on every channel for a man was totaly insane had next to no good music and as for his fantastic dance moves(if you can call them that) I am not so impressed oh and 30 I won't be attempting any moonwalk as I know that the only real way to dance is looking down at the ground taking a drag off your cigarette every three seconds (anyone gets that HIGHFIVE) and as for being "the king of pop" wow that's like being the smartest retard at the special school in other words who gives a shit about his life he doesn't bleed silver and unicorn piss he's just a man (mostly if you can't dig around the plastic enough to find the heart) its not like anyone who is even reading (or writing) this is going to be treated so special after death what's MJ tryin to do beat kurt cobains record of most money made after death so I've said my part you can critize every thing I've just said as I've no doubt you will its not like I'm entitled to an opinion or anything now if you'll excuse me I'm gonna go listen to music that doesn't suck

Comments 31 and 34 pretty much summed my thoughts up for me.

MJ gets a game because: it will sell (how well? probably not all that well, no). Despite ALLEGATIONS and all his antics, this game will still sell. I'm sorry, but Green Day has a game, I think just about anybody deserves one now; most certainly the King of Pop should.

Funny, because if you watch any MJ special on TV, countless artists credit MJ for inspiring them or for changing the music industry so they could succeed.

#43 Trying to beat Kurt? The estate signed the largest record deal IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC after his death, for $250 million dollars.

So, already done. Sony payed this much because they WILL MAKE A PROFIT. No pop star has come remotely close to that. I'm going to go ahead and qualify him as the King of Pop.

Wow, Cause this thread is really about the game.

Wether he was guilty or not, the courts found him not guilty, which means for all intents and purposes he was not guilty. unless you personally know otherwise you should just shut the f up. Or keep it for somewhere where your not just going to deliberately wind people who like him (and are looking forward to this game - which is the point of this article) unless of course that was your intention, in which case i am disappointed that people are rising to it, and entertaining you being childish.

I am looking forward to this game, but since I wont be getting kinect til after christmas anyway, it really doesn't matter to me too much that its put back a little while, but i feel for you guys who would have had it on release date.

@ 44 - At least someone notices such things. Green Day isn't anything revolutionary. They're the modern Clash and Stiff Little Fingers. Michael was a star from his childhood and made countless award winning hits and originated his style of music. No video or song has ever rivaled the popularity of Thriller and probably never will. The haters can hate all they want but they have this weird problem with Shit That Makes Sense and Facts - They don't understand either.

#48 Nope, not calling Nirvana pop...

I'm saying this:

1) He isn't "trying" to beat Kurt Cobain for the "most money made after death award" (which you made up), he has DESTROYED IT.

2) A separate point, that such large amounts being thrown at him not only shows that he still is, the King of Pop, but that it's a title worth having.

Sony is a multi billion dollar company. Why would they throw all this money at this if he doesn't have good music? Millions believe his music is good, that's why they buy it. Just because you say it sucks doesn't mean it does. Just because I say it's great, doesn't make it great, but I think the countless Grammy awards, sales, etc., speaks for themselves.

because he wasn't found guilty doesn't mean he is innocent. just like oj didn't do it. well im also santa clause, i haven't been found in a court of law not to be so does that give me the right to say i am. absolutely not. yea his work was amazing at one time, but after numerous accusations and see his transformation of what he became, something was going on the general public wasn't told about.
