    That's never been confirmed, which is probably why it wasn't included.

    And yeah, the price skyrocketed about $70 on eBay.

    I loved the arcade version of Moonwalker. The group dance power move was priceless! On top of that it was a well made (and fun) adventure game. Wasn't a big fan of the Genesis version though.

    I bought Moonwalker for $20 CIB about six months ago.

    Not selling it, even though it's probably going to stay at these prices for a long time.

    That is like me smacking my roommate while he sleeps.

    There is no official confirmation I smacked him, but he knows it was me

    Wow: How many other musicians get their own game?

    Well, Aerosmith, I guess.

    Could you imagine if Steven Tyler died...and the home versions of Revolution X started selling for over $100?

    I'm not convinced about the future pricing of Moonwalker: six months from now are people still going to be looking for it like they are now? Twelve? I don't see it honestly.

    It's a great game but these prices won't last. Here is a good example. I remember putting a Kirby Puckett autographed card on Ebay 3 days before he died (for those who don't know, Kirby Puckett was was a pro baseball player). In the middle of the auction (after he died) the bidding on my item was absolutly rediculous. The card ended up bringing in more money than autographs of many dead sports superstars, actors, etc. Kirby Puckett was good but not as good as the great Mickey Mantle which his autographed cards were being sold at a LOWER PRICE! This is the same situation and the prices will fall. I still encourage people to play this game though because it is a hidden arcade gem.

    Unless people make videos on YouTube and speculate for years on the Internet about you having smacked your roommate, it's kind of different.
