It is said on the grape-vine, that Ubisoft didn’t originally intend to release the Wii version of Michael Jackson: The Experience before the other consoles, but since it worked out that way, the publisher is taking advantage of the delay to tweak the experience based on feedback from last year’s best-selling Wii release.
Reviews were largely favorable when it came to the dancing mechanic and gameplay, but the dearth of bonus content and criticisms with the game’s Dance School mode were key points it wanted to correct. A small self life by the sounds of it, that kind of thing can result in thousands of gamers handing in their copies part exchange and the retailers are laden with a plethora of Michael Jackson game for sale second hand and any integrity the game has ever had disappears for ever.
On the latter point, Guillaume Cada (Ubisoft international product manager) said, “We decided to improve these so now that in the Dance School you see yourself dancing, just like in a mirror, so you can modify your moves.” With regard to new content, “We also had unlockables, now you have Trophies from the PS3. Every time you unlock a Trophy you unlock a visual or video in the Extras and in the Gallery part of the game.”
