Not content to weigh in merely on marquee sporting events like the Super Bowl and Stanley Cup championships, EA Sports is throwing its weight into another contest. This time it's professional boxing.
Electronic Arts odds makers are calling Saturday night's fight between Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton in an effort to promote the upcoming release of Fight Night Round 4. According to EA's tale of the tape, Pacquiao will defeat Hatton in the 11th round by knockout, comedically deforming his opponents face.
The two pugilists are both represented in the latest Fight Night, as is the location of the fight, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Total simulation power!
We expect Mr. Hatton to announce his withdrawal from the match soon, based on EA's findings and hope that all future decisions in all aspects of daily life, will be determined by an EA entertainment product of some sort. In fact, I'd really like to be able to contest traffic tickets in Burnout Paradise's "Cops & Robbers" mode. I think that's fair.
