    Certainly not the reasoning I expected to see...

    (I edited the thread title; for the record it used to be 'Confirmed: Michael Jackson DID compose the music for Sonic 3'.

    Another dispute bites the dust.

    Either way, I'm glad to finally see there is confirmation.

    Well then. I guess if we had to associate Michael Jackson with a Sega Mega Drive game it really IS Sonic 3. =P

    Nice to see it confirmed officially at last!

    Writing my own MD/Genesis sound driver :D
    Ugh, so this confirms the credits were right: those names actually did write music, and were not simply aliases. And it semi-confirms the credits music; it sounds like either they just dropped the name "Michael Jackson," or Buxer rewrote the parts Michael wrote, I dunno.

    You can mock me for not believing your "direct evidence" now. (For the record, I did not believe Michael wrote the music because of the similarities or the DAC samples, but because of interviews like these.)

    Not exactly; this is one song.

    What I do find funny: neither Buxer nor Drossin played S3K; I wonder if there's something else going on or what.
     
  7. Great news! Finally we can let this controversy rest. Shame that the YM2612 is the reason MJ isn't credited, though.

    Confirmed: SEGA Genesis has a shitty Soundchip. Super Nintendo reigns supreme yet again.

    Eat it Genesis fags.

    Well, before, we were pretty sure Michael Jackson composed music for Sonic 3. Now, our beliefs have been confirmed. It looks like the answer to the question didn't die with Jackson like some feared.

    Awesome news that it's finally confirmed.

    So that was why Michael Jackson wasn't credited? Because he wasn't happy with the music? That's a little depressing, but at least we know it wasn't because of the allegations.

    I think there will be a spike in pant sales to Sonic fans tonight. :colbert:

    This just proves that patience is, indeed, a virtue. We waited, and we got the confirmation.

    Unsatisfied with the sega sound? What an elitist douche; it sounds great.

    Anyway, this is pretty cool - and I love how it comes out so nonchalantly. Now, Qjimbo just needs to make one last edit to his years-old video and he's pretty much done with that project...

    Guy confirms that work was done by Michael Jackson, but is unsure as to how much (if any) was kept.

    Of course, Roger Hector already confirmed that Wacko worked on music for Sonic 3. Two years ago.

    The large library of awful Genesis soundtracks says otherwise.

    Don't list me a few games either, I can list 10 bad ones for every one game you name.

    I knew it. There was never really any doubt in my mind. There were just too many similarities with MJ's music for it to be just coincidence.

    Yay, I'm glad we finally have solid proof! I never doubted it, though.
