If you haven’t yet gotten your fill of AIG news, Stephen Totilo of MTV Multiplayer reports that the controversial, troubled insurance company shows up unexpectedly in Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2009.
Stephen was checking out the Wii version and reports that AIG’s now-infamous logo appears on the jerseys of Manchester United:
For those who recognize AIG as one of the most hated three-letter combinations in America these days, be warned about Konami’s new Wii soccer game “Pro Evolution Soccer 2009.”
The game’s opening cinematic has a bunch of guys wearing the company’s logo…
I discovered through “PES 2009″ that Manchester United… is sponsored by AIG. (Or, to be precise, used to be sponsored, as reports, like this one from Forbes, indicate that the U.S. government has nixed any renewal of this Manchester United AIG deal.)
After reading Stephen’s piece I tossed my copy into the PS3, and found AIG there, as well.
