While Ubisoft has officially delayed the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 launches of Michael Jackson the Experience, the Wii, DS, and PSP editions of the game are still on for November 23. Today, Ubisoft announced one initiative for getting Wii owners to purchase their copies of Michael Jackson the Experience in advance, saying that it would pack in a replica of the King of Pop's iconic rhinestone-studded glove with the game.

Along with his black jacket and pants, Jackson's white glove came to be the late singer's most recognizable stage props. Perhaps most notably, Jackson wore the item during the Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever television special, in which he first performed his signature dance move, the moonwalk.

Michael Jackson's actual glove would cost at least a bit more than $50.

According to Ubisoft, the glove will be available only for a limited time with launch shipments for the Wii game. It will also be offered as a free perk, as the glove-bundled Michael Jackson the Experience package will maintain the $50 price point.
