I liked the MJ guy spawning more, sad they are removing him.
I'm sure someone will mod him back in. To be honest, I don't see it as an insult to MJ, but more of an ode. Everyone recognises the costume and the dance moves.
It's a shame the Jackson family can't understand that it wasn't done to take the piss, but as more of a tribute to the Thriller video which included zombies and fits perfectly with the games design and ethos.
I'm sure this has less to do with respect for the late Mr Jackson, and more to do with grabbing for royalties.
Kudos to popcap for dodging this one.
Sadly I suspect you are right.
Bored of this happening now.
Well, I shall hold onto my original copy of PvZ now - I loved the "Dancing Zombie"
It even came with a disclaimer in the Almanac: "Any resemblance to any person living or dead is purely coincidental"
They replaced him with a zombie with an afro on the iphone version. He now Looks like dicso stu.
pah, jackson family only has "issues" because they aren't profiting from it.
Give it a decade or 2 and bet they'll be auctioning off pieces of his skeleton.
A first move on there part to licence the image of MJ and profit from it any way possible. They should of just shaded the dancing zombie black then it def wouldn't be the known image of MJ.
Aww man, that's lame
Boo! I really liked MJ in the game
That was my favourite zombie from the game.
Money has spoken, people !
I still have to finish the game ... I wonder if they replaced him with anything
Leave Jacko in! Fun game and the MJ zombie was a nice touch.
It's been out for ages, what took them so damn long to complain about it.
They couldn't complain until he was dead. Only now can they squeeze for cash.
been dead for a while now too.
Probably only noticed now its on iPhone and xbox both probably considered to be cash cows by the MJ estate.
