EA wants Godfather II brass knuckles chotchkies back


For a game that's isn't scoring well in reviews, the recent release of the crime action game The Godfather II is gaining more press from its media kit than the game itself. As we reported a few days ago publisher Electronic Arts sent a number of media outlets a Godfather II press kit that included a very real set of brass knuckles, something that's illegal to own in a number of states.

Now several of those media outlets, including Kotaku, Game Politics and our sister site Joystiq, have been asked politely by EA to ship back the brass knuckles portion of the media kit. EA has declined to comment on the matter further. However, as Kotaku points out, even shipping something like brass knuckles is a crime. Something tells us whomever thought of shipping this item isn't going to win the Best Chotchkie Award at next year's MI6 Conference.
