Rumour: Michael Jackson Became SEGA’s Partner Because He Was Annoyed With Nintendo

A new rumour suggests that the late Michael Jackson joined forces with SEGA for Moonwalker the video game simply because he was annoyed with Nintendo. Apparently Michael Jackson pitched an idea to Nintendo and was basically ignored by the Kyoto based company which cemented his faith in SEGA for the project. Stefano Arnold, who is the Chairman at Tectoy in Brazil, says that SEGA sold more then 500,000 Genesis units to women just in Tokyo because of Moonwalker.

        1. No one is seeking attention I stated my opinion which has been stated on this website for years and which many of the usual people on this website have definitely said it more than once and just looking and observing Nintendo as a whole we all can see it and we all know Nintendo has much to improve on but will it happen immediately of course not it will happen over time

              Actually, saying something sucks can be an opinion.

          1. I bought the vita because there are games that are exclusive to the system that I want to play and older games and indies etc etc and that is for almost any console if fhere are games i want to play on it i will get it for example i will get a ps2 and a ps3 and a ps4 and probably an xbox and xbox 360 anx xbone just for scalebound but im sure there are other games i will want to play and I bought my vita late last year and it is bad Sony isn’t making games for the system but it is still being supported by 3rd parties who are still making exclusives or multi plats for the system that I want to play now those games are mainly rpgs but I haven’t checked out the vitas library and I get games here and there and I will get gba games to play on my ds lite and I will buy a game shark to play those gba games with cheat codes and if the game shark doesn’t for some reason work on the ds lite then I will get a gba sp

            1. Because you’re a troll and I troll the trolls and If you really think Nintendo sucks then why do you even bother coming to sites that are dedicated to Nintendo and Nintendo fans? Any other sensible person that thought the same as you wouldn’t even give these sites the time or day but here you are commenting on them and trying to troll people. If you don’t like Nintendo that’s fine, play what you like but why waste your time on a site that’s dedicated to a corporation that you don’t particular don’t like? It just doesn’t make sense to me

              1. Wow really I am a troll for posting my opinion which we all know is true and I have been barely commenting because I have been enjoying Japan and xenoblade chronicles X and when I do post it is my opinion on an article or state government that I will get a game or games day one and I can obviously keep uptodate with what I think sucks and if it changes for the better which hopefully Nintendo should be with the no then some things should be good either for a short time or long term and I like to keep uptodate with information regarding the games I will get day one and I’m not wasting time I read the articles and comments that I want and I may comment and I go on with my day I have been doing this for years it only takes a few seconds or few minutes and that’s it and I rarely post they suck just every now and then and like I said before you and many others have said the same thing but when I do it it is a problem leave me alone kid unless if you are a Nintendo drone and you think they are doing everything correctly which is obviously not the case and it is called criticism I’m not targeting anyone on this website

      1. Who said that lol I like games in the rpg genre, some 3d shooters, 2d shooters, 2d beat em ups, fighters of all kinds, action games, some puzzle games, side strollers of different genres, racing games, and I’m sure more I can’t think of right now I play a wide variety of games and as a matter of fact I am going to go play xenoblade chronicles X before I get ready to go walk around Japan and no I don’t play games I don’t like or think are bad so anything else kid

    1. I agreed with you when you said ‘Nintendo needs a lot of improvement’ because just like every company, criticism can be constructive, however I lost all respect for your opinion after ‘Nintendo sucks’ and ‘Nintendo’s trash’. Despite me being able to arguably deny those claims as they ARE one of the only genuine companies left who denied DLC and Mobile gaming unlike every other company, and continuously stride to innovate, with successors like the D-PAD, saving, standard controller, analogue, vibration in controllers, memory backup and also failures such as the Wii U. YOU DO have a right to post your opinion so I agreed with you there but then you proclaim after ‘BECAUSE IT’S TRUE’. no it’s not. You can’t just say your opinion is true without even backing it up. HOW is Nintendo trash? HOW do they suck? Stop hating on what’s popular/loved and speak as an individual you sheep.

      1. I’m sure the other gaming companies are obviously trying to do new things but I don’t pay attention to the new stuff they are trying to do I just want games and saying what I said is the very short version of everything I don’t feel like typing out and of course Nintendo is trash based on the competition which easily beats them in many categories I’m very sure of that and don’t feel like going into all of the details you should know that by now and lol hating on what’s popular look kid I gave my criticism and that’s it you can take it wither way that you want and nobody is hating on something that’s popular I like a few things from nine do really the main things the games and th as ts about it I could care less about a lot of stuff they do outside of gaming and naw I am far from a sheep I don’t think Nintendo is doing everything correctly and sulking up to past stuff they did or did not do first or with changing the industry in small of major ways that’s is good and the majority of that stuff happened in the past OK I’m talking about now and I gave my very blunt not going into detail criticism so child if you have nothing else to say about the article leave me alone

        1. Wow, you really managed to piss off the Ninty fans today! Lol. That’s usually my job, but now that I expanded my gaming options, I’m not quite as frustrated with Nintendo. They can blow holes in their ship all they want at this point.

  1. Is that really a reason to be annoyed? Just because he was who he was doesn’t mean that anyone should automatically listen to any idea he had, you know? Especially when talking about something so unrelated to his field of ‘expertise’ as a video game.

          1. There were plenty of other publishers, he didn’t necessarily have to go to the other console manufacturer. Nevertheless, what I consider childish is not the fact that he went to Sega but the motivation to do so, as the rumor seems to imply.

            1. He was basically ignored how is that being a child. They didn’t even respond to him, so he went to Sega, and they gave him the deal. Basic business to me, just like how no one wanted to publish Bayonetta and only Nintendo stepped up to make the game.

              1. He thought he had the right not to be ignored. How is that NOT the behavior of a child?

                Were he versed in basic business, he’d know that companies don’t have to reply to you or even to take you seriously if you are a nobody (and yes, in the video game industry, Michael Jackson was a nobody).

                The difference between Michael Jackson and Platinum Games is that Michael Jackson is not a video game developer.

                1. That isn’t really childish. It’s reasonable for someone as famous as Jackson to be bothered by the fact that Nintendo didn’t even reply saying “No thanks”. The fact that Michael Jackson was a music artist doesn’t mean anything, he was a pop culture icon. You didn’t need to like music to know who Michael Jackson was.

                  He obviously went to Sega because they were one of the biggest in the industry at the time only behind Nintendo themselves. Also, Sega weren’t the only ones who made Moonwalker.

                  1. So, to get this straight, you are saying that having Michael Jackson’s level of fame protects you from being ignored by people, companies or whatever. I disagree.

                    “He obviously went to Sega because they were one of the biggest in the industry at the time”
                    I also disagree with this, because that’s not what the article and video are saying.

                    1. Look, we can’t know for sure that Michael went to Sega just cause he knew they were Nintendo’s biggest rival and he just wanted to be an ass to them or not. There’s no proof behind that, the article doesn’t say it, the main source doesn’t either. I guess it’s more likely for him to actually do that, I don’t see how it’s childish though.

                    2. “we can’t know for sure”
                      That’s why I said ‘if the rumor is true’ a couple of posts back.

                      “the article doesn’t say it”
                      Quote: “A new rumour suggests that the late Michael Jackson joined forces with SEGA for Moonwalker the video game simply because he was annoyed with Nintendo”
                      Notice the use of the word ‘simple’

                      “the main source doesn’t either”
                      0:33 = “ele tava furioso com Nintendo” = he was very angry with Nintendo. Right at the beginning of the video.

                      “I don’t see how it’s childish though”
                      You don’t see how childish it is to get mad at a company because they ignore you? Really?

    1. Nope I see a fucking revelation that’s about to happen. You will see soon old bitch you’ll see soon.

        1. We all? No fucker. Some of us create disasters, such as the likes of yourself.

    A rumor we’ll never truly know is true or not because he’s dead and can’t confirm or deconfirm it. A seance is out of the question, though. Might contact the wrong thing so fuck that! lol

        LOL Tupac would be fine.

  3. everyone’s annoyed with nintendo. that’s why they’re missing out on a lot of 3rd party titles.

      1. You mean their mindless bots? I know a huge chunk of their loyal fans are leaving. If anyone can kill off a loyal fan, it’s Nintendo. Their days of fucking over loyal fans without consequences are over.

        1. Jaded Ridley X3 {I'm not whining, you suckers... *cough* ..poor souls! I've just been driven insane by Nintendo failing me one too many times this gen!} says:

          Well not all loyal fans. Some are still taking it up the ass from Nintendo without a proper reach around from them as a thank you for getting ass fucked. Oh wait! That’s not a loyal fan but a lapdog fanboy. My bad. I totally forgot loyal =/= sucker.

    1. I actually agree furball. He’s only a drop in the bucket of people annoyed with Nintendo.

  4. This very true. Like Sega was happy to have him on. And so was him. With the 2 space channel 5 games they Sega more popular aswell. I say Michael is right in lots of ways. Nintendo can be like that. Im happy he added his voice to the Psace channel 5 games

  5. We all? No fucker. Some of us create disasters, such as the likes of yourself.
