We all know Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps won a whopping eight gold medals in Beijing. What we don’t know is that Phelps is the first person on the planet to own a copy of Call of Duty: World at War for the PlayStation 3. During an interview with the CBS Early Show, the now-legendary swimmer was handed a copy of the FPS in question.

Here’s when things start getting even more interesting: According to Treyarch, the game’s developer, the game’s PS3 case contained an IOU card since the game isn’t finished yet. That’s right; Phelps didn’t get a working copy of the game. it was all bullshit PR.

The developer did promise, however, that Phelps will get the first disc off the production line later this year.
