Michael Jackson game hits 3m global sales milestone

Three million units of Michael Jackson: The Experience have been sold worldwide, MCV can reveal.

In the UK alone the game has sold 319,000 units to date according to GfK Chart-Track. The numbers include sales on Wii, DS and PSP.

Ubisoft’s dance game is now set to get a boost next week with the arrival of a Kinect and PS3 version of the game.

We’re delighted with the sales success of Michael Jackson The Experience to date," Ubisoft’s UK marketing director Murray Pannell told MCV.

"It’s a hugely fun and well-loved game in the UK. The Wii version has been extremely well received and we’re now looking forward to bringing the game to a wider group of consumers when it launches on Kinect and PS3 later this month.”

The PS3 and 360 SKUs are different games to the Wii, DS and PSP versions, with new functions, full-body tracking (on Kinect), new songs and improved visuals.

The games are due for release on April 15th.
