Michael Jackson: The Experience on Kinect has singing only songs

In a conversation with Everybody Plays at a recent hands-on preview event, Brand Manager Felicia Williams revealed that Michael Jackson: The Experience on Kinect will feature a number of "Singing Only" songs - tracks with no dance moves - and that the game doesn't actually track your singing...

Dancing to 'Earth Song' or any ballad is silly..the developer may have realized it from the Wii version and cut it for Kinect. But what the Wii couldnt do was superimpose you onto the stage which is clearly a more effective approach. (ala Ubisoft's Fitness evolved.

As a 360 owner I don't say this often but here goes,

Damn Lazy Devs!

That was made for Kinect, and the full implementation of Kinect into the game would have made the 360's take the best version in my humble opinion.

You're right those are lazy devs. That's a travesty because if done right, Kinect + Michael Jackson + Dancing = AAA level title. Separately, imagine a game that goes through like Moonwalker but you actually do the moves to vanquish the enemies? My word, that would sell like hotcakes!

Look at it this way, have you ever seen someone sing a ballad or a song made for a charitable cause and dance to it.

I think it was the right move. "We are the world, we are the children..." as we shake our asses and dry hump the person next to us?

Child Please!

It's a bit disappointing, I think - especially as it the dancing was apparently fine for the Wii and PS3 versions

Really the fan boy stuff on this site is shocking. By singing only tracks it mean no songs with no vocals. And as for the dance moves then check a reliable source like this one.


Looks like the best version to me. You can cleary see his multi going up when he is hitting the dance moves.

You didn't even read the article did you?

It stated that it has SOME SING ONLY SONGS, not all.

Plus all you linked was a trailer/promotional video...

Honestly it's questionable as to why they went to that route when they have those same songs able to be danced to on the other versions.

As is ALWAYS the case...
...stupid fantrolls can't/don't read the actual stories...just troll blindly, based off of the titles.

I find it quite amusing, actually...just shows the world their ignorance. :)

Then you have those fantrolls that can't see past their fanboy goggles and WILL NOT pass up an opportunity to make a negative comment even if they can see it would be pointless.

@Kingpin (below) you thought it would be construde as trolling yet you said it anyway? What the hell does handicap people have to do with it. As if you give a damn whether a handicap person can play with it. Can a person with no arms play MOVE or Wii, can a person with no legs do run in the olympics? Some things are the way they are, don't try and exploit it for your fanboy gain.

You didn't read the article. Read it and answer yourself.

Is this gonna be another Kinect game where the police are called round?

This time, because it sounds like someone being strangled? ;P
Solid_Snake-  +   1533d ago
because its easy to dance like M.J when you have 2 sticks in your hand and not having to move your feet. do you actually think you could dance like M.J did with leg movement aswell.
strickers  +   1533d ago
I read that the Kinect version is single dancer only,unlike 2 player Wii/PS3.Does anyone know if that's true?
If it is that is really poor.A turned based social game!
