lol, i've had the game since tuesday, but figured i'd just warn anybody who doesn't have it yet....... not a good idea to get the game at the mart. seems like it is kind of uh... edited, like their cds. it has cuts, but no swelling whatsoever, so they probably took out the most graphic part of the facial damage (lol, roy jones with a swollen eye in the demo looked like an ogre)...... i never played it from anywhere else, but i'm assuming they didn't just take out swelling completely (yes, its technically there, as you can heal it with the cutman, but you see no deformation at all)

i'm assuming this is just something Walmart got edited and not how the game is supposed to be. I could be wrong, but I'd assume not.

I seriously doubt they would do that. No I take that back, it didn't happen at all.

um, unless the company who made the game creates an edited version, its illegal for walmart 2 edit it without their permission. walmart isnt smart enuff 2 do that nyway, its guys in high school, mainly.

walmart couldnt edit the games on their own theyd have to request them from EA and also I think theyd have to be labeled edited otherwise it would be false advertising

i dunno, all i know is walmart edits other media, so i wouldn't rule it out. then again, it could be a glitch. i've been hearing about numerous glitches.... but i haven't heard about this one...... whatever...

Of all the other violent games that are made, why would they decide to edit out swelling in a boxing game? That would just be stupid..

no store would be able to edit the game, it would be impossible and against the law

either the developers made an edited game as well, and as wlamart is a family store they use that, or there is a setting in the game that you need to adjust somewhere.

or walmart received a huge faulty batch of disks.........

Yo, man - A friend of my bought this game.

And, you know when you boot up a game, you get that logo "EA" right?

His says, "EA"; however, right number it - it says ... EDITED BY WALMART. Copyright 2006.

No lie.

Messed up, huh?

Hmmm, I think it's BS. And Wal-Mard Doesn't edit the media, the production does...

Dude, Wal-mart is a Ja-jillon dollar company! They're the number 1 company around the world. Their stock is like 450 a share! I think the may be able to bring on a group to edit media.

I could be wrong, tho.

I could be wrong but isn't that a Violation of Copyright Infringment? Unless they have agreement with the Production, Legaly, they couldnt modify a product.

I don't believe it until I see it. Editing a CD is pretty simple stuff. Even a movie it isn't that difficult. But to edit a game they would have to reprogram it, not just bleep shit.

I believe they edit a lot of things. If a giant player like walmart ask a movie studio to edit out foul language and nude scenes they do it. If they make a music cd and cut out all of the foul language it gets done. My saying is never get a rap cd at walmart it will be full of blanks. I got a CD that said explicit version on it. Guess what. It was full of blanks and bleeps. Some girls at work were talking about buy a dvd they always wanted and Mel Gibsons butt was censcored. Certain topless shots are edited out. These are all production DVDs and CD's. It was done at the factory. So, is it possible for a video game to get edited I think yes. All walmart would have to say is I want an edited version to put in our 6 gazillion stores. EA would at that point say OK. Why not I have Burker King adware, Underarmour ADware and Everlast Adware already in the game.

Although it's hard to prove whether or not Wal-Mart is editting the games, they certainly have a high standard for their products. Just like SeanTAk said, they won't sell CD's with profanity or about killin' your hos with your 9...but Wal-Mart sells guns!!! In case you haven't visited any Wal-Marts in small towns or Texas you can buy weapons at Wal-Mart. Makes no sense how a company can be so hypocritical where is seems they're against violence or something, I just don't understand what they're all about.

Wal-Mart is owned by a family who are christians and that is why they do not sell music with profanity or certain magazines like Maxim or the other ones for guys.
