116w ago - Ubisoft PR Specialist Alex Monney is here with a video peek at reliving pop history this weekend with Michael Jackson The Experience for the PlayStation Vita handheld.

To quote: I started at Ubisoft around the time that we launched the first iterations of Michael Jackson The Experience.

Being a longtime fan of the King of Pop, I always hoped that I could experience the game on the road. With Michael Jackson The Experience coming to PS Vita on February 14th, my wish has been granted!

In Michael Jackson The Experience, you'll experience the King of Pop's chart-topping tracks as you draw shapes and tap on both of PS Vita's multi touch pads to the beat and choreography of the Michael Jackson avatar.

You'll play through 15 HD scenes inspired by Michael Jackson's iconic music videos and short films, including "Smooth Criminal", "Thriller", "Remember the Time" and many more, all with high-definition quality graphics.

Master each of those performances and unlock collectibles and rewards, including alternative outfits and special effects....

Michael Jackson Signed PlayStation Selling for $1.5 Million Dollars

550°
247w ago - It's no surprise that Michael Jackson had a passion for video games. His Neverland Ranch arcade collection was a testament to this, but he also signed a PlayStation once.

That Michael Jackson signed PlayStation is now for sale on eBay, seemingly authentic in signature by the late King of Pop.

To quote: While the starting bid is not ludicrous, the Buy It Now price on eBay certainly is. The seller is willing to part with it right now for $1.5 million.

It's doubly special, according to the seller, being the 1,000,001st PlayStation to roll off the assembly line. Funny, that somehow sounds a little less believable than the Moonwalker actually scribbling "I Love You, Michael Jackson" on a game console.
 

Confirmed: New Michael Jackson Game is Still in Development

500°
249w ago - A few weeks ago there was a report that a new Michael Jackson video game was in development, and scheduled to hit consoles for the holiday 2009 season.

Shortly following the news, tragedy stuck the pop star and there was no word on whether the game would still be released or not.

Today IGN has confirmed it's still being developed, to quote:

A report by MCV is confirming the rumor, and says the game is being handled by the singer's own company, MJJ Productions.

According to the report, the game has been in development for "several months" and Jackson himself even recorded speech and dialogue before the musician died.

The game has an expected Christmas 2009 "home console release" for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will also feature a number of artist's hit songs.

A representative from MJJ Productions was quoted as saying "I am sure it will still be released. Michael loved games."
