Michael Jackson's video game contributions were almost universally under the banner of SEGA, so I thought it might be prudent to see how the company feels about his passing. SEGA sent along this statement to Multiplayer:
"We here at SEGA were very sad to hear about the passing of Michael Jackson. He was a true music legend whose songs touched each of us at some point in our lives. We are proud to have worked with him and included his music in some of our most well-remembered games and are sure that his genius will live on through his great body of work. We have no doubt that future generations will be moonwalking to all his greatest hits."
