Upcoming Michael Jackson Game Might Be Affected by Artist's Death

Michael Jackson, the record-breaking, sensationally gifted "King of Pop" who emerged from childhood superstardom to become the entertainment world's most influential singer and dancer, and the tabloid world's most disturbing celebrity, has died. He was 50.

Michael Jackson has a planned video game bring released for the PS2, PS3, and Nintendo Wii this holiday season. No word yet as to whether or not the performer's death will cause a delay or cancellation of the game. (Culture, Michael Jackson Video Game, PS2, PS3, Wii)

That was out of nowhere. First we hear a game is being made, the next week he dies? And at 50!?

Didn't Farrah Fawcett die today too? The comments on the source site say that 3 celebs died today, who was the third?

Michael Jackson is a legend, he proved that some people will love you even if you were a pedophile.
Lifendz  +   2261d ago
I'm in my late 20's
and believe me when I tell you that when I was kid Michael Jackson was larger than life. He wasn't just a performer; he was the biggest star in the world. I saw him perform at Madison Square Garden when I was six years old and that concert was perhaps the best I've ever been too. Despite the controversy that surrounded his life in his later years, I can say that his music, his shows, and his performances brought my family together on many a night. And getting his Michael Jackson's Moonwalker for Sega Genesis was maybe the best Christmas ever.

Rest in peace Michael.

So sad...
I remember seeing Michael Jackson in concert in 1984 at the Orange Bowl in Miami... What a bummer! The guy has had nothing but controversy in his life for the past decade. An abrupt end to a sad life...

And poor Farrah Fawcett... overshadowed by MJ in the news only hours after her death... at least Ed McMahon got a few days in the headlines.

I see that a lot of immature people are disagreeing for very stupid reasons.

People need to grow up. It doesn't matter what he did in his life that was wrong. What matters is his legacy.

I don't see why this shouldn't be approved in the first place, he had a game about him announced just days ago, and his death would definitely affect the game, wither it does so in a good or a bad way, this article IS video games related. :)

So Ed Mcman was the third. That's kinda freaky but at least the other two were old, 50, that's my parents age...
GiantEnemyCrab  +   2261d ago
There was a Charlies Angels video game as well but you don't see news about Farrah Fawcett. This is NOT gaming news no matter how you want to spin it and this site is a joke when it comes to reporting stories that shouldn't be approved. You are just whoring this out for hits to your NEWS site and you are just a footnote as the "gaming guys".

True shocker... Listening to his songs as we speak...
May he live through them...
Unfortunately, LA coroner has confirmed...
RIP Farah Fawcett... She was supposed to get married soon... Its a shame...

RIP... Incredible musician. I think I might buy the Thriller album again just to pay respect

btw, I know someone will say something rude, but it's alright because they're the 12-year-old types who say things they don't mean and jerk off to the reactions

"What about the MJ PS3, PS2 and Wii game?"

Have some respect! Who cares about the games at this point? Michael Jackson was one of the greatest singers of all time, who's music never gets old. He and his music will be remembred for generations to come, and that in itself warrants news.

Rest In Peace, Michael.

Be that as it may, this has nothing to do with gaming on a gaming news website.

Nothing to do with respect, I'm talking about it on other sites, not a gaming news site.

So sad.....

You have to understand...The Micheal Jackson some of you born mid-late 90's is not the Micheal Jackson I grew up with and idolizing. IF your a child of the 80's and actually listened to music...you would know

You just don't know how this Video made me feel..

I'm quite sad..
