    I think it's edited. Because look on Denny's car it looks like the Coors 21 logo

    Alcohol sponsorships are prohibited in video games since people under the age of 21 can easily get their hands on them. That's why drivers with alcohol sponsors usually end up with their last names where the sponsors usually are on their car.

    But prelim and other game shots have it which leads me to thinking it's edited.

    Again, They aren't prohibited. The alcohol companies choose not to advertise in games so that the government won't regulate them.

    Which is why you would think the 21means21 campaign would be great for Video games as it's basically the alcohol version of the "Don't Try this as Home" PSA that they have in Wrestling games & Extreme-Sports games.

    I know I've said it before, but I've DEFINITELY played games with alcohol sponsors in them, the one that sticks in my mind is GP2

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5keOLqx2JpQ]YouTube - Grand Prix 2 (GP2) - Adelaide no help hotlap[/ame] (at 0:20, yes the game shipped like that)

    I remember seeing a FIFA game back somewhere between 98 and say 2002 that had Corona logos in it as well (both on the players jerseys and I think the stadium ad-boards).

    Also of note is in that video it's Fosters... I remember Corona being in a game.... What do they have in Common? Non-USA/Canadian based companies. Different parts of the world different views on alcohol (and possibly tobacco) advertising.

    No different then how in some countries Martini could sponsor a car with it's logo & in other countries they had to use alternate logos or non at all. This past weekends F1 race rings a bell, Martini, Johnny Walker, etc couldn't be on the cars/uniforms/helmets/etc.


    Also while using Grand Prix 2 as an example... Fun fact when that game came out reviewers and players said those graphics were "Photo-Realistic" :twitcy:

    It is a government regulation that has been in effect for the past 7 years. Have you ever purchased a alcohol sponsored die-cast without that stupid base on it? That is to keep kids from actually playing with it as a toy. We wouldn't want any 10 year old to run down to the liquor store to buy a fifth of Crown Royal! lol

    So what about sponsors like Viagra? How come they aren't in most of the games?

    Corona = EA (US company)'s Superbike series. Euro release had Corona on the Suzukis, US release left it blank AFAIK

    Martina = Sega rally

    GP2 was for 1994/5. Plus it's still playable. I have a 2010 season ongoing. It's dated very well too

    Valvolineman, LOL. That may improve some driver performances

    Could be the Germain 13 if Geico decided not to approve of the sponsorship for the game.

    i can see alcohol not on some diecast, but there should be some parental control code that can allow the logos in games

    That's what I assumed, but they have no 13 in the game remember? Jen Jo Cobb Racing is the 13.
