'Yoostar2' (ALL) - New Screens

by Rainier on Feb. 23, 2011 @ 4:28 p.m. PST

Everyone now has the opportunity to become a global movie star with Yoostar2. In an instant you can step into the shoes of famous characters from hundreds of movies, play out the part and then share your performance with the world.

Yoostar2 allows players to perform in hundreds of famous movie scenes, record their performances, and share them with friends and family online. The Kinect for Xbox 360 sensor and the PlayStation Eye allow Yoostar2 to achieve Hollywood “green screen” style effects without the use of a green screen. In an instant, players can literally step into well-known movie scenes and play the roles of the world’s most famous actors.

Once a scene is recorded, players can upload their performances to Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network, share the performances on social networks such as Facebook and Yoostar.com and view them on virtually all devices, including Smart Phones, PC’s and Consoles. Players increase status through community participation, such as sharing, rating and commenting on others’ performances.


Yoostar2 features an innovative user interface driven by Kinect for Xbox 360 gesture-based technology and PlayStation Move motion controllers and created by Blitz Games Studios, one of the world’s leading game developers. Players’ performances are scored, allowing them to rise from “struggling actor” to “superstar”, but the game also encourages improvised performances that draw on players’ creativity. Yoostar2 features multiple gameplay modes, including a “party mode” that allows a group of players to perform in quick succession and a progression mode where players face a series of challenges and unlock new scenes.

Yoostar has secured world-class movie content from leading motion picture studios, including Paramount, Universal, MGM, Lions Gate, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and CBS. The Yoostar library features hundreds of iconic movie scenes and top Hollywood talent. The game comes with 60 scenes, and players can purchase and download additional scenes from the Yoostar library during or apart from gameplay.
