Every year the focus of every game designer in the world is drawn to the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3. The show serves as a launching ground for the newest games and technologies from major developers like Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony, as well as several smaller companies. One of those companies drawing the most attention is French design firm Ubisoft, which unveiled the latest in motion gaming - Michael Jackson: the Game.

Ubisoft, the company behind such gaming series as Rayman and Assassin's Creed, plans to launch the movement-based game across all major platforms, making it one of the first third-party games to utilize both Sony's forthcoming Move control system and Microsoft's Kinect.

Players will be tasked with keeping pace with the King of Pop as he performs some of his most popular songs from Beat It and Billie Jean to Thriller and Black or White.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot claims that the design team had a blast recreating the iconic dance moves, and that fans will feel right at home with the game.

"We're delighted to have the opportunity to develop a game based on the songs and moves of one of the world's most incredible performers of all time," Guillemot told NME.com "We expect the game to bring Michael Jackson fans, families and friends together with the energetic song and dance of the King Of Pop."
