Burnout cover is a coincidence

Not copied off album, says EA.

Electronic Arts has told Eurogamer any similarity between the Burnout Paradise box and the cover of an album by US band Karate is "pure coincidence".

As reported by Joystiq earlier this week, the album was released in 2000. It shows a car coloured with red, black, blue and yellow tones on a white background.

Burnout Paradise is due out later this month for PS3 and Xbox 360. The game's cover shows a car coloured with red, black, blue and yellow tones on a white background.

However, an EA spokesperson today dismissed suggestions the similarities between the images were anything more than a fluke. "It is pure coincidence," he stated.

Burnout Paradise will hit the shops on 25th January.
