Dance Dance Revolution
Michael Jackson, who died June 25, was not only the "King of Pop," but also an avid collector of pop culture memorabilia.
In early 2009, Jackson's estate contacted Julien's Auctions with plans for an April auction of relics Jackson had collected throughout the 1970s, 80s, and 90s.
Among these treasures, housed at Jackson's Neverland Ranch, were sculptures, artwork, furniture, toys, and video games. The items were abruptly pulled from the auction block on March 5, the same day Jackson announced his 10-concert London comeback tour.
The status of these items remains unknown for now, according to a Julien's Auctions representative, who could only confirm that his site continues to maintain a good relationship with the Jackson estate. But regardless of where they end up, they offer a look into the video games Jackson played--or at least owned.
Konami's 1992 Dance Dance Revolution game (shown here), featured in Julien's online auction catalog, was just one of Jackson's arcade video games. Scroll through the gallery for more from his collection.
