Game Politics.com have only gotten one report of this, which seems a bit odd, but an Xbox Live gamer who goes by Dragunov765 has posted photos of what appear to be in-game ads for Barack Obama.
I haven't seen this in burnout when I played it earlier.... but it's kinda sad I play games to get a away from these kind of ads. haha
I guess he's reaching out to the gaming community. Hey, Obama, if you really wanna reach out, pass a bill for all video game software to never each a price point of $30. (In my f*cking dreams)
I strongly suggest all of you fellow gamers watch ZEITGEIST: ADDENDUM.
I'm not sure everyone could handle Zeitgeist.
****in me, you've got to be.
Hahaha, there you have it folks, Obama, hard core gamer, confirmed.
This prick and all government needs to stay the hell away from my games. It's the only place I can go to get away from the morons that think they know what's best for me.
We got enough hate with this console war going on right now. We really don't need to throw political gass on this fire.
you have to admit its a VERY unique place to campaign, just dont know how much its going to hit the target crowd, but i guess when you get so much money in endorsements why not spend it everywhere.
At least this means he's in touch with todays 18-35 crowd.
no, not really
What other politicians have placed ads in video games then? enlighten me.
Why to waist a post...
@remeberthe357 was your post NOT wasted telling someone they wasted a post?
wow, osama in burnout that will make me vote for him he's such a hipster and in touch with the youth of america. edit: nice one, disagree fairy. why can't we leave politics out of gaming is it not enough to be blasted with the garbage everywhere else.
Because we should all vote for Osama. You realize Osama's a terrorist, right?
osama - obama, who cares. I see that there are Hussein Obama fanboys on this site, what's sad is that some of you people think that the politician that you vote for actually care about anyone other than themselves.
Wow what made you so cynical? I can understand what your saying, but the way you say it makes you look ignorant and close-minded. @UGA_1(Below)Don't get me wrong. I'm not asking you to take back your comment, I assume it is how you feel, so keep speaking you mind. I didn't make it clear that I was pointing at the fact the this nation has been plagued by lack of education, a reliance on fear, and an all around negative view of anyone who doesn't share the same views. I am also not saying that these necessarily apply to you, thats for you to decide. For the record, I don't blindly follow anyone, my decision to vote for a certain candidate is not based on who is most popular at the time. I take that time to listen to the candidates, then from what I hear I lean a certain way. However, my decision comes down to the day I check the box and send my absente ballet in. I vote because I can, because if I don't the thing I want to happen have a smaller chance of happening. And I have to completely agree, politics and games really shouldn't be in the same room together.
Man. WOman. Male. FEmale It's OBVIOUS ALL WOMEN HAVE PENISES. They have It's only 2 letters off and It RHYMES. ...You gotta be kidding me dude. That's like Dye And Die. OMFG, That's one letter off, so when you DYE your hair you're committing murder, ZOMG.
I can understand what you are saying as well, but that doesn't change my opinion of people who blindly follow someone based upon popularity to me they are ignorant and close-minded. I'm freakin sick of politicians they all talk about change and have you heard a strategic plan from either side about the process involved in initiating this so called "change". I will gladly take back my cynical a-hole comments if I can see an actual plan put into motion with way for the people to make sure that it's being followed through and if it doesn't happen the politician gets booted, no 4 year free ride. I'm just saying let me play the games that I payed for without getting politics involved.
Man, i don't want to start a political debate here, as a fellow republican and Uga fan quiet down man. I mean my ideas about Obama don't deviate from yours but just keep it to yourself or at least at home. Anyway i'm going to the tennessee game tomorrow. GO DAWGS!
Hopefully we can get a trophy for crashing thru it. This is unbelievable our dear leader is trying to brainwash and indoctrinate us
You out off all people with that name should be worried about barrak hussien obama getting into office, because the only 357 you will have is in a video game
who even uses that word???? Obama is a leftwing liberal nut. What does Osama and Obama have in common? They both have friends who bommed the penatgon. I am not saying Mcain is better but he is the lesser of two evils, and unless you want to pay higher taxes and want more govenment telling you what to do vote Mcain&Palin 2008
The stupidness coming from that comment makes my mind hurt, I gotta get out of here.
I hope it's only in the US,I was going to download this of PSN tomorrow,I can't be doing with this sort of adverts,unless it's a special billboard you have to break.
LOL at dragunov765 i have a brother in live
Well, I won't be playing this game anymore. Bring on the Bob Barr ads, then we'll have something.
Yes! I want that Chic-fil-a, BTW...like, NOW!
Please give me more negatives for not supporting someone who has NO experience to run our country, we've tried it for 8 years folks! Wake up and smell the ROSES! OBAMA is not the guy who needs to run our country. Socialism is where it will be, I just can't understand it. I'll vote Barry because he has videogame ads! YEAH! I'll vote for Barry, because he embraces total government control over everything I do! YEAH! Dems, want to control you! Don't believe the hype of freedom through them! More taxes! Big government, more government control! I'm all for it! What a joke.
You know, i think the only reason Burnout was dropped to $29.99 was because of those advertisements (Not the Obama one, but ads in general). Either that or Criterion/EA were feeling generous.
... when they have absolutely nothing to do with the game, or the world it's set in. Prime example: Crackdown is set in the future, yet it had billboards for new movies in the game. Nice way to rip you out of the experience(!) It sucks! I dont mind 'real' ads in footballgames or racing games, where you would expect those ads... but when they're unrealistic (as in the example I just gave with Crackdown), it diminshes the value and enjoyment of playing. I have nothing against Obama btw, I hope he becomes the next president. I just dont want to see out-of-place ads in games where they will take you out of the experience. There should be an option you can chose in the game-settings, to ask you if you want the ads in the game to be as they were designed by the developers, or if you are OK with alternating 'dynamic' ads.
haha what?? that made my day
That's just sad...
well it does make sense..a he has tried to get the younger demographic...not to mention riccotello supports obama...ironically i traded the game in today not cause of this...i found the load times at the beginning to be longer with the new updates now.
Are they allowed to do this?
hahaha why would't it be?
At my school, voting for Obama makes you cool. In my neighborhood, McCain/Palin signs are ripped out of lawns. etc. etc. etc. It`s kind of disgusting really.
Its different here in miami, people rip out obama signs from peoples lawns and leave mccain signs where they are.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... You talking about these people?
i hate when people do that stuff, on either side in my towns downtown it is extremely pro mccain i know this cause there is an obama headquarters in it and every house and business in the town is littered with mccain or republican signs except that one spot funny i was extremely pro mccain a week ago, now i am completely neurtal...my vote will be decided by the debate next week.
Around NC all I can find are McCain / Palin ads. There's at least 3 on every road I take, yet the only Obama sign I've found was slapped to the back of a jeep.
my town in NC is pretty even, see obama stuff everywhere and see mccain stuff everywhere...maybe slightly more obama tho
because he has a Hollywood support base. You do think Hollywood is cool, right? And when you turn on your TV for news...who does the network think is cool? Well if you don't know, the networks and everybody who works for them want to live the Hollywood lifestyle and want to have friends in Hollywood, so Hollywood is cool. Now if everybody in Hollywood is cool and likes Obama you can be cool too if you vote for Obama also. You see, TV is the answer if you are easily programmed.
I am the one. ;) I look very handsome in that picture by the way.
I look like the Michellan Tires dude in a suit! >_<
Too bad the 18 to 34 gamers don't vote!
Then they better not complain at the results. Playing games is NO excuse for being sedentary.
I'm not voting because both of them really suck after listening to two debates. I personally feel that Hillary should be the presidential candidate. Bill Clinton was a fine president, and behind every great man is a woman. As far as I know, Hillary didn't hurt NY as a senate. I just don't understand the majority.
I'm 18 and I am voting. I am definitely not voting for that jackass Mccain and I am leaning slightly towards Obama
If so, disgusting. Doesn't matter what your political affiliation is. Never want to see this happen. Doubt its true, though.
Why didn't I think of this!? >_<
Because you spent all your money on advertising in daycare homes jk
Yes. We. Can
Smart move, shows he's up with the times.
good for publicity and hits on that website can't believe you guys approved it. this must be done via an update or patch to the game which ive been playing since the disc version came out and 90% of the ads are fake but similar to real ones if this was real there would be a youtube video with a million views right now
i have never seen obama in the game since i spent more than 250 hour playing it . i know every tiny part in the game
Come Help A Nigger Get Elected...the true meaning of the word change! Am barack bananas and I approve this message.
