    This is a little amusing rather than a huge issue, unless you have OCD or hate these kinds of mistakes. The box art says "Race in hundreds of online & offline players" instead of races or matches, or whatever the correct word is. I doubt Sony will produce new box art to replace the ones with this error. If a person makes a big stink about this, then they're wasting their time on something that has nothing to do with the actual game.

    That does seem very odd for such a big game, but everyone makes mistakes. I bet it would just make them more valuable in the future once these current games eventually become vintage.

    Yeah, that is pretty weird. Usually when a big game or a massively-hyped game is released, it looks picture-perfect to attract as many customers as possible.

    I find this one a little weird too, you'd expect a game so big to be carefully edited down to near perfection before everyone sees it, but I guess little mistakes do happen.

    I'm a graphics designer myself and this is known to happen especially when the people involved have seen the picture so many times that everything seems so familiar and therefore it makes it hard to pinpoint the mistakes. Having it checked out by outside people is really a must especially for the small details.

    Exactly, I think this is a rather big blunder and makes me anxious about the quality control of other parts of the game. I hope we won't be seeing any of these text errors in the game itself, it makes the game look unpolished and unprofessional. There is definitely enough money to get good Quality Checkers so I don't understand why a mistake like this has slipt through.

    Text mistakes are much easier to let slip and even when you have many people checking it can sometimes still go unnoticed because that's just how the human brain is trained to interpret. Thankfully the mistake doesn't seem too huge so I don't think they mind that much.
