EA’s promises booty with their “Sin to Win” contest

Electronic Arts had quite an interesting gimmick at this years San Diego Comic Con. They asked Comic-Con goers to participate in their “sin to win” contest which included a dinner, a sinful night with two hot girls, a limo service, paparazzi and a chest full of booty.

Game fans that wanted to enter would need to “commit acts of lust” by taking photos with the models working the Dante’s Inferno booth or any other booth babes at the show. Those photos would then need to be uploaded to Twitter, Facebook or emailed to Electronic Arts.

Making it even more sizzling, the contest details we emblazoned on the chest of a busty woman with faux tattoo.

Even though all presentation of this contest seems a bit on the ‘dodgey’ side (hey you are at BusyGamer.com, we like dodgey), the rules also stated that the judge’s reserved the right to disqualify any submissions that were “inappropriate for any reason, including without limitation, for depicting or mentioning sex, violence, drugs, alcohol and/or inappropriate language.”

Think of it more like a “Sin-Lite”.

Penty of attendees complained, and even EA has submitted a formal apology for this ‘risky business’.
