Utah Boy´s Christmas Gift "Madden NFL ´07" Game Contained Porn - EA Apologizes

 

Electronic Arts has apologized to a Utah family, after their 14-year-old son found explicit pornographic material on his "Madden NFL ´07" video game while playing with his Christmas gift.

The game, sold in a Modesto Circuit City store was in a factory-sealed case. The material and several titles of adult films produced by a studio in Northridge, California appeared as the boy tried to play.

EA declared its deepest regrets and assured that such an incident never happened before. Circuit City has already announced to send a new games package as compensation.

  Similiar Situation  
 
I worked at a video game store and we had to recall all of our used PSP memory sticks because someone at some point found porn on one. Every single one recalled because ONE had porn.

It's known that people carefully open pacages and replace the idem with other junk and repacage the box...then return them as unopened.

The problem lies when people deliberaly sabatage merhandise and the stores resales the returned (open but can't tell that is has been) goods.

  I suspect...  
 
The teenager was busted watching porn and blamed it on EA.

Mother: "Oh my God Billy! What are you watching?"

(Billy quickly gets his hands off the controller.)
Billy: "Mom! I just put in this DVD game you gave me for Christmas."

Mother: "Oh that is terrible. I'm taking that right back to Circuit City!"

I bought that game, but no special bonus materials.
Once at walmart in 1998 I purchased a VCR and when I got home it had an original copy of Debbie Does Dallas inside of it, halfway watched.
That was the luckiest day of my life.
