EA has decided not to launch its fighting title MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) in Denmark.
Danes laws prohibiting the advertising of energy drinks such as those promoted in the game, so unless EA modify the game, lunching it would be illegal in this country.
EA said that: "We are adhering to laws in Denmark that restrict the use of energy drink product placement in-game, and therefore are not shipping EA SPORTS MMA in that region. Our game authentically recreates the sport of MMA in every facet, including energy drink in-game sponsorships on fighter shorts, gear, and in fight venues.".
