You may love or hate the dead guy ..I frankly don't care.The purpose of Planet Michael is to attract attention. Period. You can love or hate the man. He's controversial. That's the point no? It gets people talking. He's also a global icon. By having Michael, it will open up many many other possibilities in terms of securing IP with movie studios for SEE. Every studio have their "stars". Universal with their Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummies, etc. Paramount with Star Trek. Columbia/Sony with Spiderman, MIB, etc..
One way to look at it is this. Calypso is like a unique store. It has its loyal followers. However, it's a free-standing store with nothing else around it. You will have people that come to shop at it. Others will never even visit it. Next comes Rocktropia. It sets up shop next to Calypso. However, its customers are different from Calypso customers. Therefore most stick to their store. A few may visit the other store. Now imagine a mall. A mall with 50 different stores. Each unique. Some offer similar products. All of a sudden it's a destination. People come to "SHOP" the MALL not the individual stores. All will have their favorites. However, since they are at the mall, most will shop around. 200 Peds deposited into Calypso's economy. Multiply that by 1 million casual customers from the other 49 shops. 5% of them make Calypso their regular monthly stop. 50,000 new users, 200 peds a month. Is this getting through to the naysayers at all? Are the people who are so against this understanding this at all??? Your beloved Calypso will always be true to its core values. It is just now part of a greater collective. By being part of the greater collective, each unique entity will benefit when the whole collective thrives.
sigh...sadly, I know...let the flaming begin...who will post the first sarcastic remark after this post? anyone?
What I don't understand is MA granting a licence to a planet that will have some crossover music themes. Also more importantly to me, green lighting something I don't believe will be a viable concern , are really enough hardcore online gamers/gambling MJ fans ? Ultimately if it is licenced & launched & fails, it will have a negative impact the whole universe.
