  • The Wii version is very similar to ABBA: You Can Dance in terms of graphics, the only differences are the font and the look of the menu.
  • In the Wii version of the game, "Money" is incorrectly credited as a song from the album Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix which was released in 1997.
    • This would be true if the song in the game was the remix but it is the original version of the song, released on HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I in 1995.
  • The Wii version had a bundle that came with a replica of the infamous white bedazzled glove worn by Michael Jackson.
  • If the DS version of the game detects it is being played via an unauthorized pirating device, you will hear vuvuzela sounds over the game's audio, making it difficult to play.
  • If there are two players in a song, P2 will appear in each side of the screen making a feeling of a trio mode, even though the routines are duets.
  • In every dance on the Wii and PS3 versions, Michael Jackson is portrayed by Yoni Jayl (who is also the choreographer, along with Cain Kitsais and Céline Rotsen).[1]
  • The Just Dance 2 Gold Move sound effect is used in this game.
    • Also, Gold Moves or Gold Notes display "GOLD MOVE" or "GOLD NOTES" in the score area (instead of "YEAH") when they are performed or sung correctly.
  • Karaoke is exclusive to both Xbox 360 and PS3.
    • In the Xbox 360 version, the player can sing using the Kinect Sensor's mic, the Xbox 360 headset or a wireless or USB microphone. Singing is only available in Performance Mode, Master Performance Mode and Sing Mode.
    • In the PS3 version, lines that are highlighted in gold are called "Gold Notes".
  • Michael Jackson: The Experience was licensed by Triumph International.
  • Unlike the Xbox 360 version, which mainly runs at 30fps in Menus and Gameplay and 60fps in some cases (like loading screens for example), the Wii and PS3 versions run at 60fps.
    • The Wii version fully runs at 60fps, including the Menus and Backgrounds. In some backgrounds, it drops to 30fps.
    • The PS3 version does run at 60fps. However, Menus update at 30fps so does the backgrounds. The backgrounds are pre-rendered instead of in-game.
