by Rainier on March 17, 2011 @ 10:56 a.m. PDT

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.

In addition to what is already available, from next week until the end of April, Yoostar is releasing an impressive slate of new scenes and themed scene packs via the Yoostores on Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network to the community of Yoostar 2 fans.

“Our Yoostore is open for business and each month, great new content will be offered to ensure that the movie-making fun doesn’t stop,” said Nicholas Reichenbach, Chief Content Officer for Yoostar Entertainment Group. “Between the downloadable content, ability to share your video creations and the new Yoostar Playground game on Facebook, we have laid the groundwork for a vibrant social community, and we are pleased at how fast it is expanding.”

Individual scenes purchased on the Yoostore are priced at $2, while 3-clip and 5-clip packs are priced at $5 and $7, respectively.

Yoostar’s slate of downloadable content being introduced this month and rolling out through April includes a variety of scenes, sets and packs, including:

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.
