Get Beaten Up - In a Video Game

Win a chance to get beaten up - in a video game LOS ANGELES, May 9 (Reuters) - The good news: video game fans have a chance to star in an upcoming game release. The bad news: your digital likeness will be beaten with lead pipes and body-slammed into concrete pool decks. British video game publisher Eidos on Friday said it has struck a deal with games news company IGN Entertainment Inc. to sponsor a contest in which the winner will appear as a character in the upcoming game "Backyard Wrestling: Don’t Try This at Home." The game is set for release this summer on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox game consoles, and the contest, which requires only a name and an e-mail address, is open to anyone age 18 and up. Eidos said the contest runner-up will receive a lineup of "Backyard Wrestling" DVDs, in which competitors abuse each other with anything they can find. The Web site for Backyard Wrestling Inc. shows a number of competitors lying on the ground, beaten and bloody. Separately, Eidos said it had signed a deal with Island Records for an official in-game soundtrack featuring some of the top hard-core rock music acts, including Sum 41, Slayer, and the Insane Clown Posse.
