How Michael Jackson Mastered the Art of Chiptune in Sonic 3

Thomas Hellier from Capsule Computers wrote :

I’m throwing caution into the wind – Michael Jackson did Sonic 3 and that’s that. In case you didn’t know, much ink has been spilled over whether or not MJ actually wrote the soundtrack to the greatest game on one of our favourite consoles. It’s certainly no secret he enjoyed playing them. Debating about it any longer is futile – how could you argue with this man? (Culture, Sonic the Hedgehog 3)

That's a fascinating article! I never knew that much about the architecture behind those sound chips! I've always loved the Genesis and Sonic's music though.

I agree with you at 100%

Lol but I think your asking to much out of the "new age" n4g all (they) care for is console wars and does these game look better on X system next to X system .. Even tho its the same images use for both most of the time ...

In any case agree great read and good post we need more of it around here

I just love how many sound effects there are where you absolutely know he was grabbing his crotch when he thought of them

Sonic 3&Knuckles has to be one of my favorite games ive ever played, the soundtrack for that game was amazing.

The strange thing is that, in my opinion, S3's soundtrack is the worst of Sonic's 16-bit games.
