New Michael Jackson Video Game for Xmas

6/14/2010 9:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson is still on the cutting edge of technology -- TMZ has learned the King of Pop is set to star in a new revolutionary video game ... and the people in charge of MJ's estate are totally on board.

The game -- currently untitled -- will essentially be "dance karaoke" ... which means gamers will see Michael Jackson dancing on screen and will then be challenged to imitate his moves.

The game will be available on multiple platforms including Wii and Xbox 360. The Xbox version will incorporate Microsoft's new Kinect motion capture technology -- which will allow the gamer to play without holding a controller.

Also in the Xbox version, the gamer will be judged based on full body movements. The game will process the movements and display the gamer's avatar on screen ... dancing right next to MJ.

And there's more -- the game also includes a karaoke feature, in which gamers can sing MJ songs like "Billie Jean" ... and even mess around with their voice thanks to an autotune feature.

The game is being developed by Ubisoft -- the same people behind Assassin's Creed and Ghost Recon -- and we're told Ubisoft properly secured permission from the MJ estate ... so it's all legit.

The game is scheduled to hit shelves sometime before Christmas.

just the name MICHAEL JACKSON will always generate millions. and the jacksons are famous for one reason JOE JACKSON. i dont condone his abusive behavior. but lets be real, there would be no famous jackson family were it not for JOE, share the wealth. and dont be quick to write MICHAEL off either. i'm sure he's still alive. GOD bless the jackson family, and the rest of the world.

It is very pathetic to see that a bunch of losers have no better role model than a junkie pedophile with talent for singing and dancing. Are you serious? is there noone better out there? They must be desperately lacking of love and resort to "love" the freak

14. As I look at this I am thinking all of this money coming into the estate and they won't give Joe Jackson the 15 thousand dollar a month stipend that he has asked for? It was Joe's diligence in the Jackson 5 early years that led to their fame [and later the solo careers of Michael and Janet Jackson] and fortune. Parenting didn't come with a manual. Joe probably did the best that he that knew how at that time. Everyone else wants to benefit financially from Michael's talent. Joe did not allow them [J5] to be mediocre and that work ethic stayed with Michael, making him a world class super star without equal--in the entertainment field. It is kind of disrespectful to treat the family patriarch like this. This estrangement between Michael and his Joe was stroked by the media et al. Michael went into eternity with this “unresolved issue” with his dad. I am sure that Joe loved Michael and was very proud of his son. Why is it okay for everyone else to make money off of Michael‘s talent? Joe had nine kids that he nurtured [to the best of his ability] to reveal their talent. He could have been one of these lazy parents who disregarded their children and didn’t explore the options. He is the reason the world knew who the Jackson 5 were. Give him his proper credit and a stipend. It is reported that the estate has already made a billion dollar$ in ca$h money.

I just have to say BRAVO bj_USA! You are right on the money! People need to give Joe the proper credit for bringing the J5 to fruition instead of always bashing him as "the one who abused Michael".
