Imagine Babies. The name alone prompted sniggers from juvenile internet types, but when the full game arrived in stores Ubisoft found it getting a lot of press coverage and all for the wrong reasons – the boxart featured a watermark from the photo site iStockPhoto. Apparently it would have only cost a mere $12 to purchase the photos sans watermark. You can probably put that down to laziness rather than a lack of funds on Ubisoftâ€™s end.
Vaguely amused by the above? Then youâ€™ll like this – the US boxart for Okami on Wii includes an IGN watermark in the background. Thatâ€™s quite embarrassing for a game thatâ€™s known for its artistic flare. Capcom have made an apology already and are offering a free replacement cover. If you’ve got a ‘defective’ cover then my advice would be to keep hold of it – it may be worth something on eBay one day.
