There are three video games being released this week for the avid player. They are Michael Jackson: The Experience for the Xbox 360 Kinect and the PS3 Move, Patapon 3 for the PSP, and Rio for the PS3, Xbox 360, NDS, and Wii. Which are you going to play?
Michael Jackson: The Experience has already been released for Wii, NDS, and PSP, late in 2010, but will be released Tuesday the 12 for the Xbox 360 Kinect and the PS3 Move. They have songs that are not available on the other systems, as well as other options that do not crossover from the Wii, NDS, and PSP.
The Kinect allows only a single player at a time, unlike the Move and Wii which will allow up to four players. However, the Kinect will have a singing option that the others will not (although they will have optional on-screen lyrics). The Kinect will feature a few other goodies that the other game systems won’t: a “Singing Only” option for some songs, which can also be made “Dance Only”. The Master Performance mode will allow you to have a more realistic music video adventure while combining singing and dancing with more difficult choreography. Depending on your game console you can have a vastly different “Experience”!
Patapon 3 is a game that tests your rhythm. The story is a continuation of Patapon 2 with the addition of “Superhero Patapon” called upon to defeat the evil spirits to save his Patapon compatriots! The addition of a more expansive multiplayer and competitive mode (allowing up to 8 players) give Patapon 3 a ringing beat!
Rio is a family party game that those who love the Mario Party series will find familiar. Colorful and boisterous, Rio is based on a movie of the same title. With 40 different mini games (plus 3 bonus games for the Xbox 360) it will prove an entertaining diversion for the whole family.
