Ubisoft's The Black Eyed Peas Experience to paint the town, shut it down, burn the roof and do it again

The Black Eyed Peas are next in line to receive a music game homage, as Ubisoft this weekend announced it will feature the US hip hop group in an upcoming dance title called The Black Eyed Peas Experience, due for the Xbox 360 Kinect and Nintendo Wii.

Similar to other dance games, The Black Eyed Peas Experience will give Kinect and Wii owners the opportunity to flail and/or waggle around to The Black Eyed Peas tracks while watching avatars resembling will.i.am, Fergie, Taboo and apl.de.ap (Allan Pineda Lindo Jr) groove along to their own tunes. The title will also feature brand new dance routines, and the ability to sing along if the mood strikes.

"Ubisoft has both redefined and dominated the dance category in the video game industry and we can't wait to be part of taking that to the next level by infusing an experience that's 100 percent authentic to The Black Eyed Peas," said will.i.am in a press release, following the game's reveal during a weekend performance in France.

Added Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot: "The Black Eyed Peas are the perfect artists to headline our next Experience game. Their award-winning music, dance moves and artistic style will be combined into a gaming experience that will excite both fans of the group and those who enjoy playing dance titles."

Neither Ubisoft or the band have given any indication when the game will arrive, or why PS3 Move owners won't be getting a taste, but expect more info to phunk with fans' hearts on the game's Facebook site.

    You see, I now have the best reason EVER to become a Sony fanboy with this steaming pile seemingly not soiling the PS3 line up. This, and the likes of Zumba Fitness and Let's dance(let's, erm,not?)actually make me scared at the kind of tastes other,modern day people have. Scared, really scared-these people get the vote too you do realise that, don't you? Someone said they're also free to breed but I'm choosing to be in denial over that one.

    @ birdman 1041 "Um. Pass. The Peas jumped the shark long ago." Couldn't have said it better myself. Their first few albums were so good, I mean they were actually funk and hip hop, not pop shit.

    I'd get it if there was a minigame where all I did was slap Fergie.. I'd actually buy a kinect if I could do that. Its not cause I hate women. Just dumb ones

    The Black Eyed Peas: A guy with some talent, another guy with very little talent, a guy who contributes nothing, and a woman who is the Meg Griffin of the group.

    So this is what's delaying BG&E2 and I Am Alive? I'm so glad I bought their games in the past so I can fund this train wreck.

    @CoryM- Thanks for that... INSIGHTFUL comment. But I agree. This going to be the biggest load of crap since Old MacDonald decided to stick several dozen different kinds of animal in one paddock. Have Ubisoft not payed ANY attention to what happened to Activision?

    Yes.....I mean hell no.

    This, this is what Anonymous should be focusing on. This is the real crime.

    Um. Pass. The Peas jumped the shark long ago.

    The only thing I came away from that thinking was JESUS, THEY MADE FERGIE'S ASS LOOK HUGE AT THE 0:50 SEC MARK!!
