Oopsies: IGN watermark on the cover of Okami photo



You Internet Matlocks sometimes amaze the hell out of me. Over on NeoGAF, a Wii Okami thread started up and it was pretty innocent enough until user bob digi pointed out a horrible fact. Right by Amaterasu's mouth is the IGN watermark. I'm looking at the box as I write this up and sure enough, the IGN logo is there. 

What looks to have happened is that the horrible and lazy "artist" that made the cover lifted this piece from IGN's Web site. They then took an image of Amatersau and slapped her right on top of the background image. Capcom didn't seem to notice and printed out the design for all of the Okami Wii boxes.

What I don't get is why on Earth did the cover "artist" need to lift an image from IGN? Why couldn't he have just received the photos he needed directly from Capcom?! Was he just too impatient to wait and wanted to get paid as fast as possible? Whatever the case, this is one very embarrassing mistake. 

[Thanks, Riven!]

Monster Hunter 4 NA weapon contest winner is an insect glaive
