Pocket Pool stripped of <i>Girls Gone Wild</i> license

Eidos says agreement with controversial line of videos for racy PSP billiards game was never formally signed.

Last month, a representative of developer Conspiracy Entertainment confirmed for GameSpot that its upcoming PlayStation Portable game Pocket Pool would feature the license of the Girls Gone Wild video series. Meanwhile, Eidos, the game's publisher, continued to issue press releases for the game with no mention of the attention-grabbing license.

This week the publisher said that contrary to the Conspiracy representative's assertion, Pocket Pool will not feature the Girls Gone Wild license.

"While I can confirm that the Girls Gone Wild license was in consideration for Pocket Pool, an agreement was not formally signed," an Eidos representative told GameSpot. "The coverage you have seen was premature."

Pocket Pool lets gamers rack 'em up against comely models to unlock video clips and image galleries. The game is rated M for Mature for sexual themes and partial nudity and is expected to be released next month.

"Girls Gone Wild" license? Whoever decided to make a license like that must of either been very creative or very desperate. :D

Tranceplant wasn't saying that this was a "Guy Game", he was referring to the actual "The Guy Game". Run a search for it, doors will open. And you'll realize nothing he said was sexist.

Don't worry, Jack Thompson wont touch this. He knows he'll get sued fast & hard. I wanted to comment on everyone saying "real men, real women". Again, porn & sex are 2 different things. One is visual, one is acted out. Some people need the entertainment before they'll be in the mood. A lot of marriages are like that. I must admit, only the adults understand what is going on here. Only the little kids are throwing a fuss. No I will not buy this game, and no, I have no interest in naked girls (obviously lol). (I don't look at porn in general though) How can you be a "real men", when all you can do is restrict peoples thoughts & shun them. I hope you aren't Christian. (although I'm agnostic) Maybe it takes a better sense of life, and other people's feelings (being considerate/compassionate) to accept people & these games or life styles. Now obviously, that one guy is right. If you're a couch potato, you wont find anyone. Just don't turn gay and come after me, I shun that sort of thing ;).

Some of you are very closed minded, others are stating facts they can't up hold. NOT everyone likes porn, I have no interest for it. Yet some how, some people compaired porn, to sex. Some people as closed minded as you, don't get that - so that's why you rely on porn. In other news, you're stating that people that play video games are geeks. Uh, it makes them smarter/wierd for playing games? Tranceplant, that was sexist; girls exist to. They make games just for girls as well. Barbi? Well, unless you're a gay guy (like myself) who likes Ken (not me). You're all so reasonable, and this had nothing to do with the article, just you guys in general

That's fine. No one needs that license. No one needs another "Guy Game". It's just stupid.

This is too much, lol. I keep checking back on this article to read new comments. Put this game on top review priority Gamespot, I just want to laugh some more at what you say. Oh, and no dissing porn. I'm a respectable lady and even I like porn, lmao. Regardless, do not spend a DOLLAR on this game. I prefer the flash ones on Newgrounds. Now, if this game somehow managed to be GOOD... *falls over laughing, can't breathe*

I completely side with Dominicous on this one. The porn industry has evolved, as has the gaming industry, and applying old stereotypes to a completely new phenomenon is ridiculous at best. Nevertheless, Pocket Pool will probably suck.

This game will not be made or broken by the use of the GGW license. I tend to agree with HCMF. ...end of line...

"hey you guys know there is more to life then porn right?...real men don't need porn, there is such a things as real women..." Porn is a multi-billion dollar industry, so I don't want to hear that one guy that still lives in his mommy's basement holds the monopoly on porn products. Grow some pubes.

This is one of those weird cases where it doesn't really matter. Naked chicks are naked chicks...only this time they won't have the GGW logo plastered on them.

i've been in a serious relationship for 6 years and i'll admit to watching porn the occasional time. you know you all do, don't try and suck up your pride by calling yourselves real men. who are you kidding... we're men

Girls Gone Wild sucks, nobody will care. If this developer really wants to sell sex, then just pay some Vivid Superstars money to play the pool. Also, why watch Girls Gone Wild which is borderline porn and pathetic when you can watch real porn? Theres nothing wrong with porn unless you are the kind of person who weighs 500 pounds and has no girlfriend or social life and simply sits in front of a computer monitor fantasizing about women you cannot have. If thats the case, then you need to get out and date women. The first step is getting the flabby butt into a gym and working out.

hey you guys know there is more to life then porn right? "This game is for 15 year old boys who arn't man enough to just go out and get some pr0n. Its pethetic." real men don't need porn, there is such a things as real women...

Finally! A game for all of the morons that actually thought those "Coed Naked" shirts were funny and creative. But aren't they all too busy bar-hopping, lifting weights, and vicariously living through sports teams to have time to play video games?...

"The coverage you have seen was premature." that's probably the problem with most nerds who are planning on getting this game too.

Yet another reason why the gaming community has come under political fire. Thank you, Eidos, for giving Jack Thompson more ammo to shoot back at us.
