Battlefield Heroes Cashing In On Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson is dead. And lots of people are looking to cash in on his passing. Some, like Amazon, at least have a point. But a cartoon war game set during the Second World War?

We're trying, and failing, to see the point. Well, aside from the obvious point, that being there's a buck to be made from the death of the King of Pop.

As you can see in the pic here, the game will next month be offering two new costumes, one for the good guys, one for the bad guys. The good guys get a Smooth Criminal Outfit. The bad guys, a Bad outfit.

They're a little out of place, we know, but potentially most galling is that when you click on the advertisement on the game's site, you're prompted to cough up for "Battlefunds", the games currency (that's paid for with real money). Classy, EA. Classy. Hopefully that's just an administrative oversight, and when they do go live, they're free.

    thats pathetic!
    i already hated ea but now even more so. they are as bad as his father for doing this!

    Everyone can chill - I'm running BF Heroes now, and the Jacko inspired outfits are now completely free. Well, they'll cost you some in-game currency (the kind you earn by playing), but not battlefunds.

    MICHAEL THE NARC-ANGEL

    Millions of little members of the worldwide F.F.A. (Future Followers of the Antichrist) have finally learned how to find a certain part of their lower anatomy and quickly touch it while dancing - thanks to Michael Jackson, the highest paid Lower Anatomy Toucher of all time! Special thanks also go to the Jesus-bashing, Hell-bound Hollywood moguls who were just as quick to see higher profits in lower anatomies! [Just saw this opinion on the web. Other grabby items on MSN, Google, etc. include "Separation of Raunch and State," "David Letterman's Hate, Etc.," "Tribulation Index becomes Rapture Index," and "Bible Verses Obama Avoids." - something for everyone!]
