Usher surprised all with a performance of his latest hit “Scream” to launch “Dance Central 3” on Kinect for Xbox 360, Monday at Microsoft’s E3 press conference.
The newest installment in the dance series from Harmonix Music Systems and Microsoft Studios includes today’s music and classic hits.
As part of the game, Usher choreographed dance routines to his songs”Scream” and “OMG,” and participated in a motion capture shoot to bring the moves to the game.
“Here was an opportunity to get closer to my fans, a chance to teach them how to dance in a very fun and recreational way.” Usher explained
Usher shared that this was his first experience with motion capture, he added, “It’s really cool to see how this works and how much detail goes into it… I really think the technology is amazing, to be able to track your entire body. I was really blown away. I had to be a part of this.”
He views these capabilities as a “wave of the future … Kinect allows you to be a part of it.”
