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.

The story is too old to be commented.

SKUD3163d ago

Totally didn't see this one coming. I really am surprised by this. King of pop R.I.P.

FamilyGuy3163d ago (Edited 3163d ago )

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?

BRACHATTACK3163d ago (Edited 3163d ago )

You were such an icon, i just can't get over this...

Be at peace, MJ.

Disagrees? You people should be ashamed...

Lucreto3163d ago

FamilyGuy - 50 is quite young my Mom was born the day after MJ so this has hit home for me and my family

RememberThe3573163d ago

The sad thing is that with all our stupid ass flame wars, go check out the ABC News story on this, and read to disrespectful bullshit they're saying about him...

Panthers3163d ago

My fav entertainer and singer. RIP MJ. I grew up to his music. :(

Ahmad-3163d ago

Dun, dun, dun ..... A child pred bites the dust!

LtSkittles3163d ago

but it's still sad that it happened.

Rock Bottom3163d ago

Michael Jackson is a legend, he proved that some people will love you even if you were a pedophile.

Lifendz3163d ago

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.

xwabbit3163d ago

Whose the nub disagreeing

Kassanova073163d ago

RIP Mike. I'll listen to Thriller in memory of King.

qface643163d ago

talltony3163d ago

R.I.P The King Of Pop!!!!

bushfan3163d ago (Edited 3163d ago )

But he was the great king of POP....period

EpicGamerSwordsman3163d ago

R.I.P Michael Jackson (1959-2009) He maybe dead, but His music lives on forever.

harrisk9543163d ago

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.

chaosatom3163d ago

His music will live forever.

pixelsword3163d ago

To the best performer of all time.

Sibs3163d ago

:( 2 famous deaths both on my birthday... 'tis a shame.

The real King of Pop died years ago, his body died today though.

y0haN3163d ago

I am so sick of hearing MJ news, I came on N4G to avoid it -.-

RIP NTL though, he was awesome.

jwatt3163d ago

R.I.P MJ, love your music.

Boody-Bandit3163d ago

Well you finally have peace MJ!
You'll truly be missed by music fans around the world.

ultimolu3163d ago

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.

Have some respect, my God.

Boody-Bandit3163d ago

Thanks for bringing us this story.

RIP Michael Jackson The King of Pop :'(

This should be approved just for Michael Jackson.

Holds a candle lit vigil in his honor.

Rock Bottom3163d ago

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. :)

PirateThom3163d ago

What about the MJ PS3, PS2 and Wii game?

SactoGamer3163d ago

For those who thing this isn't gamer news, he's got a new game coming out ( Besides, it's Michael Friggin' Jackson.

GCNSeanFoster3163d ago

He also had the Arcade and Sega Genesis game... Just crazy... kinda shocked he died... Its like the 80's died today with him, Farrah and Ed McMahon...

FamilyGuy3163d ago

So Ed Mcman was the third. That's kinda freaky but at least the other two were old, 50, that's my parents age...

GiantEnemyCrab3163d ago (Edited 3163d 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".
