Canadian Singer & actor Michael Buble is taking his "Christmas" spirit into the virtual realm, collaborating with popular Facebook game CityVille and giving an interactive gift to his fans over the holidays.CityVille players will be able to socialise with Buble's personal avatar, which will talk and sing in different settings including a holiday bonfire, as well as hunt for presents that Buble himself would like under his own Christmas tree.
"Social gaming has opened up a new door for artists to connect with their fans," Buble told, adding that CityVille players will "see a different side of me in the game and also connect with me in a really personal way."CityVille, developed by social network game company Zynga, allows players to create and grow their own towns, and according to Appdata.com, is the No. 1 game on Facebook. It can also be played through Google Plus and smartphones.
