Take-Two's All-Pro Football 2K8 has landed OJ Simpson back in court.
His likeness is featured in the title, where he is closely associated with a fantasy team called "The Assassins", who have a hooded, knife-wielding mascot.
It was all a bit close to the mark for relatives of murder victim Ron Goldman, who OJ Simpson was accused of killing in 1994 alongside wife at the time, Nicole Brown Simpson.
Simpson was acquitted, but a civil case for wrongful death went against him to the tune of a USD 33.5 million judgement.
As a result, a court in the US ruled yesterday that any money OJ stood to earn from lending his likeness to the game would go to the Goldmans' estate, lead by father of the deceased Fred Goldman.
It follows on from the group's acquisition of rights to OJ Simpson's hypothetical book "If I Did It" last week.
Take-Two has declined to say how it got the rights to use his likeness in its game, but maintains the knife-wielding mascot "is not specifically associated with OJ Simpson".
