For someone who isn’t really big into golf games, I do seem to wind up posting a bit about them, and playing web browser golf. So when I saw that South Park lampooned the Tiger Woods Thanksgiving incident and turned it into a parody mini-game in EA Sports’ upcoming Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, I figured I’d juat have to share it, right?
However, EA are none too happy about the portrayal of their upcoming game, and are looking at ways to threaten South Park with legal action over slandering their upcoming game. Personally though, if Nintendo didn’t sue over the Wii, and Activision didn’t sue over Guitar Hero’s portrayal on the show, I don’t see how EA could possibly have a case here. Besides, it’s parody, and all’s fair in taking the mickey, right? I’m sure at least someone working within EA’s cracked a Tiger Woods joke about the whole thing at least once, and nothing probably got said to him/her. It happened, people, move on. Like anyone’s going to actually start taking South Park seriously now..
