Anyone Buying The Michael Jackson: The Experience Video Game?

CS2012 CS2012
I was wondering if any one else was planning on buying Michael Jackson: The Experience video game. If so what system are you getting it for? Are you pre ordering your copy or picking it up in the store?

I am buying the DS version. Since it is $20 cheaper than the Wii game plus I can play the game in town on my DS. I am literally counting down the days until it is released. I never pre ordered anything but I am so excited about this game. I pre ordered my copy from Amazon several days ago.

That is a ... ummm.. No for me. But I am glad that those who loved his music will get the chance to play a game based on his music

I'll probably get it but hadn't paid attention to the different versions. Games tend to be the kids things though. I think Michael was amazing I'm more interested in the album coming out though. But my kids will get a kick out of the game.

Count me in the rock-dwelling group, as well; hearing about the video game has given me a great urge to crawl back under it, though.

MJ's "Thriller" period was a big part of my teenage years, so he's important to me in that sense.

In later years, I had a fascination with him akin to watching a train wreck. I don't know that I necessarily believe he ever molested any children (hence I'm refraining making offensive speculative comments regarding what the 'gameplay' in the video game involved), I just think he didn't really understand appropriate boundaries between adults and children. I don't think he had a real childhood himself, but I don't think he ever really learned what it means to be an adult, either. Speculating about him having sex even with his wives Debby Rowe(sp?) and Lisa Marie strains the limits of my imagination. Which is probably good.

I've got two major issues with the late (and honestly great) Mr. Jackson. The first was watching his interview with Martin Brashir and hearing him deny having ANY plastic surgery, except nosework to correct a deviated septum. I mean, REALLY? You're a celebrity--the public isn't exactly shocked when celebs have cosmetic work done. I could have understood if he said, "Yes, I did, but I would prefer not to discuss my reasons;" but the fact he sat there and repeatedly told and insisted on the truth of what is a completely obvious lie offended me greatly (and that's pretty difficult, trust me).

I truly lost most of my respect for him, however, when he purchased the Beatles' catalog by outbidding the combined resources of Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono. That just...repulses me. It's bad enough he and Mr. McCartney were friends; but I'd think--as an iconic songwriter himself--he would appreciate, more than most, the importance of artist's desire to own his or her own creations. That really just disgusted me. Yes, it was a smart business move. But he betrayed a friend, and a fellow artist.

Sorry for the rant, but it's hard to watch the idols of your childhood fall.

I did talk to my husband about canceling my DS order and getting the Wii game. I was shocked when he said go ahead and cancel it and buy the Wii game. I told him at some point I will also be getting the DS version. I haven't suggested this to him yet but I am hoping he will get me the DS version for Christmas.
