Ubisoft used press reviews of Michael Jackson: The Experience to improve the PlayStation 3 version, it has been revealed.

International product manager Guillaume Cada told DS that the game's delay from November 2010 to April 2011 allowed the studio to use reviews of the Wii version as feedback.

"For us [the delay] was an occasion to really improve our game, and have the best experience possible for the gamers," he said.

"For example on the PlayStation 3 version, we used some of the journalists' feedback during the review [of the Wii version], because the dancing parts had a really good rating, so that was awesome. They said it was really great."

Cada said that the main criticisms of the game were the lack of bonus content and the simple Dance School, which have been improved for the PS3 release.

"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," he said. "So it's really like a dancing class, with your coach and you in the mirror. So we really wanted to improve that.

"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."

Michael Jackson: The Experience will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in April. The Wii version is out now.
