This is pretty bizarre, amazing, cool, genius, revolutionary, strange, unsettling, and overall interesting. Ads pushing a vote, and specifically a vote for Obama, have started appearing in some xBox Live games. According to an AP story, there are nine EA Sports games involved in the xBox Live ad buy, including Burnout:Paradise and Madden ’09. I particularly enjoyed one of the comments from someone at EA Sports:
“Like political spots on the television networks, these ads do not reflect the political policies of EA or the opinions of its development teams.”
Gotta get those disclaimers in wherever you can. Espceially with this years presidential debate – or so it seems.
