Rumour: Michael Jackson Video Game Coming To PS3
Video game rights were included in Sony's $200m purchase of MJ's estate last week.
According to reports, the deal gives Sony free reign to use Michael Jackson's released and unreleased material. The Independent reports it includes the right to release ten new Michael Jackson albums, video games and DVDs between now and 2017.
Of course, the most likely release is an MJ Singstar - but PS3 Move could well come into the equation.
Following the deal, Rob Stringer, chairman of the Columbia Epic division of Sony said: "There may be theatre. There may be films and movies. There may be computer games".
Jacko's no stranger to video games - with his own Moonwalker becoming a particular cult hit.
Sony released an no stranger to video gamesMJ PS3 bundle in Japan in January.
