Snoop Dogg made a special guest appearance this Wednesday morning at E3 to announce the newest social video game on the block, Yoostar on MTV. The game acts as a social “video karaoke” and works with Xbox 360 Kinect ($49.99), released in Holiday 2011, and is designed for the pop culture gamer fan. The game gives the opportunity for fans to warp into their favorite MTV character, from shows like Jersey Shore and The Hills, and place themselves into the TV show.
The game features 80 clips from TV, music videos, interviews, movies and more in a virtual green set to fulfill their wildest, actor-bound dreams. Yoostar will also boast its own social community, Yoostar Playground, to rate and award fellow Yoostars’ uploaded clips, while earning boosts, fame and Yoobucks. Users can also rise the leaderboard by adding comments and entering contests.
