WTF!?! A Michael Jackson MMO


Couple months ago, Ubisoft announced Michael Jackson: The Experience and many just shrugged it off as it was a music/dance game and not a Pedobear game. Move forward to now, we get another MJ video game announcement in the form of Planet Michael. SEE Virtual Worlds is developing the free to play (but will have MANY transactions to “enhance” your gameplay) MMO game and this is how they describe the “ultimate Michael Jackson online game:”

[Planet Michael] will be an immersive virtual space themed after iconic visuals drawn from Michael’s music, his life and the global issues that concerned him. Entire continents will be created that will celebrate Michael’s unique genius in a way that underscores his place as the greatest artist of all time. Michael’s longtime fans will feel at home as they find themselves in places that seem familiar and yet unknown at the same time, and new generations will discover and experience Michael’s life in a way never before imagined. At its core, Planet Michael is a massive social gaming experience that will allow everyone, from the hardcore fan to the novice, to connect and engage in collaborative in-game activities with people worldwide.

While it does seem they have good intentions for the game it still feels like they are exploiting the musician’s death. Y’all could say whatever you want or feel about Michael Jackson, but the man made Thriller. What do y’all think about this game? Is this an MMO you would like to check out? Do you want to connect with other Jackson fans around the world? Or do you have no interest at all? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
