EA sends out brass knuckles with Godfather II, wants them back

EA has sent out a press kit for Godfather II to US journos, including a set of brass knuckles as a promo stunt. Hilariously, brass knuckles are a first-degree misdemeanor in many states.

When asked for comment, an EA rep told GamePolitics that hopefully the folks over there were enjoying the game/ EA wants the weapons back, and is even sending out a prepaid envelope just to make sure the offensive material is disposed of properly.

When pushed, the rep clammed: “I can’t discuss this any further.”

No word yet on whether or not EA could face charges for sending illegal contraband through the mail service.
