    A friend on twitter just spotted the pre-order box in London HMV has changed to the- seemingly real- artwork.
    GBAtemp won't let me upload the pictures, so here's a link

    Why would a European retailer have ESRB's thing and not the PEGI ones?
    Because...
    That's fake.

    The guy spends all his time watching/ tweeting about wrestling, I doubt he has the time to cock about photoshopping Paper Mario artwork! I will try and find it in my local HMV though....

    Just saw a totally different one as well, the original is definitely an internet mock up- sorry, I was busy pretending to work and thus did no research (I am meant to be in a meeting).
    It is possible that HMV have done no research- my local one had a Sonic Generations display up which that boxart changed on twice, then disappeared...

    I know, I didn't even look properly! Maybe I need some sleep, or to stop browsing the internet, playing 3DS and working at once....

    It could be believable if you didn't pay too much attention.
    But "Ironic, isn't it?" is too lame to be on a game box.
