President Obama headed out to his local Best Buy today and picked up a copy of Ubisoft’s Just Dance 3.
From the President of the United States? O-bam-a.
lol agreed. They should put on Just Dance 3.... OBAMA BOUGHT THIS GAME
Ultimate Endorsment. Oprah who??? hehe.
Doesn't Obama not have bodyguards or personnel to do this sort of stuff. Why would he run such a random errand in person? Is Obama on Ninty's payroll?
No, apparently he's a father. He even goes to Denny's.
Because he has chuck Norris as is his bodyguard. Hes cool.
Watch some guy get REALLY sick of dumb Chuck Norris jokes, so he literally assassinates him. Where will your Chuck Norris jokes be when that happens?
oh my God! Nintendo must have paid a fortune for that
No way, Obama just loves to dance.
LOLOL!!!!! 5 disagrees... for a joke and you get 4 agrees because you saw the joke but those that disagreed with me didn't. CLASSIC N4G. bubble for you
He might love to dance, but he's pretty terrible at it.
He's going to be disappointed if he played 2.... And after all of his stupid "Stop playin' games so you can make a change an' vote for me durrr hurr!" campaign. And in-game ads. That sorta contradicts, doesn't it? Wait a minute... "We cannot impose a military solution on what has effectively become a civil war" > Iraq > Lybia "I will remove one or two brigades a month, and get all of our combat troops out of Iraq within 16 months" > Didn't begin immediately (the sort of unrealistic, over-promise that got him elected over similar candidates, if you ask me) > didn't meet deadline by several, several months Eliminate Earmarks > See "Obamacare" and "stimulus" bill for hundreds of examples. ....well someone is just an absolute bag of contradictions. He reminds me SOOOO much of a certain president we had recently that started off attacking the last president for wars, debt, not enough jobs, etc. Sigh......we need a rEVOLution.
Wow! none of that made any sense. I feel dumber for having had read any of that....help me, i've gone retarded. You're a fricking nut!
Really? Because it makes perfect sense. Obama has publicly denounced gaming as this major problem facing youths today and the reason their education suffers, but then he goes out and buys Just Dance. SilentNegotiator then listed other instances in which Obama showed he's a liar and a hypocrite, and you don't understand that? Yes We Can right?
@Silent - Don't forget he signed the NDAA bill, did not move to try and repeal the "patriot" act (and signed its extension), and did not close down Gitmo. That is just the start of the list for me. But you did a good job explaining how the Nobel Peace prize winner not only didn't end the current occupations but also expanded the war into Libya and is now harassing Iran.
@dragonKnight His stance on gaming was not that kids shouldn't do it at all but rather they should not spend hours and hours of their days just sitting in front of the TV or playing video games. Too many hours of anything is not good. Everything needs to be in moderation.
"But you did a good job explaining how the Nobel Peace prize winner not only didn't end the current occupations but also expanded the war into Libya and is now harassing Iran." Which is it? He "leads from behind while letting the UN take on Libya" or he started a war (that is already over. WOW!) in Libya? Iran, who promises to wipe our ally off the map and promises to defeat America, should be left alone to their own devices. Just wait until everyone is dead to do something. Mind you, we have done nothing militarily yet. While we're at it, let us all turn a blind eye to Syria. The Nobel Peace Prize means sit on your hands while the world around you takes a massive dump on peace. Just make sure you do absolutely nothing. Obama haters need to find better things to hate. Just Dance 3, anyone? ^^
Just Dance is not a typical game. He was probably referring to games like World of Warcraft or Call of Duty, why players spend many hours on at a time.
Don't forget he also has The Witcher 2! I'm sure just dance is for Sasha and Melia.....or VP Joe Biden! http://www.escapistmagazine...
Obama should focus more on finding a solution to the problems that the US has in oppose to advertising a video game. -_-
The amount of fixing or solution finding the US needs right now won't hinge on the fact that he goes out and buys a video game and it's publicly shown. Good god people.
Well he can try and find a solution after Christmas.. you bah humbug fool!
Now he's 'advertising' the video game? It looked to me like he was just buying and someone stuck a camera all up in his business.
Wow so as a father he can't buy his kids a gift they wanted for Christmas??? Wow...
Really...so he should just I don't know stay at home until the American people's problems are all solved. So you're saying he is not allowed to have Christmas or buy presents for anyone. Huh....please tell me you are joking. To those that agreed, really. You're going to agree with this statement. ...really...sigh
You do realize Obama fills only on branch of government? He is not THE government of the united states. And no president can do virtually anything with a do nothing congress which has an approval rating in the single digits.
It's narrow minded people like you and many others that make the world go so wrong. From your point of view the president is not human and should never be viewed as a man just shopping for his kids. He should never get a break or a vacation. He should be able to fix everything even though no one will help him fix things or simply go against him just because they don't like him. What good is a solution if no one wants to help fix the problem. In other words, what good is kobe without the rest of the lakers. Some of yall need some serious mental help.
They did the same thing with Target. http://www.huffingtonpost.c...
Yep, and thanks to the media coverage it probably isn't a suprise christmas gift... if it was ever meant to be.
LOL! Thanks media. Now the kids know that Santa isn't real. Jerks!
No, Santa does exists. Its the President of US in disguise.
I don't care. he's set to sign NDAA soon. I don't care what system he buys the game for, he's scum.
its a great game.
Even though it's so played, I laugh super hard every time I see your picture in a post.
For some weird reason, your display pic just annoys the hell out of me.
I found this story to be very interesting and enlightening. I have absolutely no regrets reading it.
at least its not call of duty
Hmm wonder if he would act like this online xDD. http://youtu.be/S-GOCnLpwtk
fox news would go nuts if he bought call of duty just imagine what they could insinuate.
That he has bad taste in games?
Fox news - BREAKING: OBAMA RUTHLESSLY SLAUGHTERS 250 innocent civilians... *tiny font* in call of duty */tiny font*
Should they even go nuts on the fact that he has Witcher 2? Its violences and nudity!!! lol!!!
We can also hope that he has a PS3 and buys Skyrim......I wanna see him demand a decent patch for that game!
Publicity stunt, the president does not have to go out and buy his own gifts, and now that this is all over the media, wouldn't that ruin the "surprise for his daughters". What about his wife, is he buying nothing for her? This is so fake, but im not sure how he thinks this will make people like and thus vote for him. But I could be wrong, maybe his advisers were right to tell him to do this, it seems to be making you people all giddy and happy.
your looking way way way to far into this, relax...
calm down Alex Jones
@Strikepackage Bravo You got all that from "Buying Just Dance 3"?....
No, he clicked ahead and actually read the story, as crazy as that might sound...
@TopDudeMan You get what I meant. I'm stating he's JUST AS BAD as the people praising the situation. I mean for crying out loud, some of us knew what he owned years ago, and yet people on here are being "surprised"?
its good for votes to show your human and get out once and a while and shop for christmas just like everyone else
The stupidness of Yanks never ceases to amaze me! You guys really view this as "aww, how cute, they snapped him doing a bit of Xmas shopping..." seriously?!!! It's just a publicity stunt but you guys lap it up!!! I love being a cynical Brit, if we saw Cameron doing this kinda shit we'd call it for exactly what it is, nausea inducing PR.
@Si-Fly, as an Brit your opinion doesn't matter here in America! You need to worry about what dress Kate's wearing or who got knighted today. Sir Si-Fly! Lmao!!
No. The stupidness (not a word, by the way) of Brits never ceases to amaze ME! We aren't all like that. In fact, most of us call BS on stuff like this. We know this is a PR stunt. We groan and whine about how poorly he's done as a president. We are intelligent. Some of us... Alright. You got me. Most Americans are morons. Please don't lump us all in there though. :/
So much for the surprise.
He plays the games with his daughters? Wow, he's got patience. I couldn't even enjoy it when I was drunk.
Wow, the president of the United States buying your game. I wouldn't be surprised if sales of Just Dance 3 exploded for next week. Talk about free publicity!
Rome is burning and Nero plays Just Dance 3.
While I disagree with the sentiment, that was one of the more witty comments on N4G in a long time.
Witty for comparing Rome to the U.S., and Nero to Obama?? Totally different things going on there.
@Gloomy_Nes It isn't intended to be a direct comparison, but after having two presidents that I didn't/don't agree with in office (Bush and Obama) I'd rather the government either lead the nation, follow the will of the people, or get out of the way when it comes to the issues of our nation. I could care less about what the President buys for Christmas, and I guarantee that this was a PR stunt to get his ratings up. Democrats and Republicans both are to blame for the problems in this country, and blindly following anyone is not the best way to go. Even the Presidents through history that I actually liked had some stances that I don't agree with, and I don't care what they did in their free time either or what they bought for Christmas.
its being burning for a long time but dont worry Rome will fall one day.
I really wish they make a Boondocks episode based on this but hopefully Perry plays Dark Souls....
I don't know, man. MacGruder is very particular about stuff like that. Unless it involves the entire Black race, I don't think he'll care. Look at Hurricane Katrina. That episode was inspired and BRILLIANT!
Ughhh, didn't this fool bash gaming this past year? Cant wait till he loses the next election....
You call him a fool because he bashed gaming? Is that why you don't want him to be reelected? Hopefully that is not the case as I am sure you are aware they are many more important matters on hand.
thats the extent of the average non politics following person in the USA anyway. If he likes what they like, theyll give him a chance. "He doesnt like the Yankees?!? I hope he loses!" "He reads Twilight with his daughters? I hope he wins!" Personally, I still think he's better than any alternative presented, so he'll get my vote. Whatever.
to who? Newt Gingrich? hahaha
