Michael Jackson resurrected by Ubisoft for Kinect

You can't kill the King of Pop. Well, apparently after a lethal amount of Diprivan you can, but you can't kill his spirit, which will live on in his music and, also, an upcoming video game from Ubisoft.

The Michael Jackson game has been announced at E3 and will be hitting the Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, Wii and DS in time for Christmas.

That means, you and your relatives will be able to spend quality family bonding time stepping into Jacko's shoes (sparkly shoes no doubt) and trying to emulate his best moves and tunes in songs like Beat It and Billy Jean. Good luck with that. MJ might have been a total nut-job but the man could certainly sing and dance.

Michael Jackson Estate co-executor John McClain said: "We're rich, rich I tell ya!" No he didn't really (not in public at least). What he actually said was:

“This game is a natural extension of what he would be doing today to raise his artistry to even greater heights for his fans of all generations. It is a game that the entire family can experience and enjoy together and this is something that would please Michael tremendously”.

The game sounds as if it will be a bit of a laugh, even though we're sure it won't be as good as the original Michael Jackson video game - Moonwalker on the MegaDrive.
