    What sort of shenanigans have you been up to this time, EA? It seems that during the promotional period for the Godfather II, EA may have sent out brass knuckles to members of the press, somehow forgetting the fact that shipping these is illegal, and illegal in the very state EA is based in.

    EA contacted Kotaku, stating that the company is currently asking for all of these back so they can be properly disposed of, but refused to comment further. EA might be in a nice bit of trouble because of this; have a read of the following excerpt from the California (the state where EA is based) Penal Code Section 12020(a):

    Manufactures or causes to be manufactured, imports into the state, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or who gives , lends, or possesses any cane gun or wallet gun, any undetectable firearm, any firearm which is not immediately recognizable as a firearm, any camouflaging firearm container, any ammunition which contains or consists of any flechette dart, any bullet containing or carrying an explosive agent, any ballistic knife, any multiburst trigger activator, any nunchaku, any short-barreled shotgun, any short-barreled rifle, any metal knuckles, any belt buckle knife, any leaded cane, any zip gun, any shuriken, any unconventional pistol, any lipstick case knife, any cane sword, any shobi-zue, any air gauge knife, any writing pen knife, any metal military practice handgrenade or metal replica handgrenade, or any instrument or weapon of the kind commonly known as a blackjack, slungshot, billy, sandclub, sap, or sandbag.

    Adding fuel to the fire, possessing an illegal weapon (such as brass knuckles) is a class 1 misdemeanor. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. Keep an eye out for further information as it is revealed.

    If EA ported the 360 version of the NHL franchise instead of using the PS2, and if they actually put effort into porting it (for ex showing keyboard and not PS2 button descriptions in the load screens), I might have felt a bit of sympathy over this.
