The Sun has reported that Capcom asked Heather Mills, the one-legged ex-wife of Paul McCartney, to star in Bionic Commando. According to Heather Mill’s Twitter tweets though she was just asked to promote it not star in it. Here’s what it says:
“Got offered to promote an amputee bionic computer game, from a wealthy computer games company I said if you donate a large sum to charity.
The stingy company came back saying they couldn’t, what happened to charitable businesses, seems they just want to exploit and give nothing.
It may make sense to take the offer but I’d rather donate regularly to many charities much more than they’re offering and not be exploited.”
Can you imagine what the game would look like staring Heather Mills instead of a chap with a bionic prosthetic arm? Or how many copies it would then go onto sell? Had The Sun got their facts right it could have been the weirdest thing to happen in gaming for a long time.
