Kolton Mahoney, a 14-year-old boy from Layton, Utah, was delighted to receive a copy of Madden NFL 07 as one of his presents on Christmas Day from his uncle. Football may be a game of X's and O's, but this particular disc was all X's. When Mahoney inserted the disc into his Xbox 360, he found himself watching some hardcore XXX action instead of hardcore gridiron action. His parents, upon seeing the smut, contacted the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which will be looking into the matter, reported Utah's Standard-Examiner.

The game had allegedly been bought on December 2 at a Circuit City store in Modesto, California, and was factory sealed with the game's logo embossed on the disc. When it was loaded into the console, titles of adult films and an explicit image were presented onscreen. It is unknown how the mix-up occurred, and the task force admits it may be difficult to determine who is responsible.
