This isn’t a criticism, I just found it amusing.
It seems Barack Obama is hoping you don’t follow his advice on video gaming.
On Friday October 10th, he said the following at a rally in Columbus, Ohio: “You know, I will invest in education. We’ll make sure government gets behind the schools. But it won’t make much of a difference if parents aren’t turning off the television set and putting away the video games and making sure that our children are doing their homework.”
Okay. Fair enough, but also on Friday October 10th, the first Obama Campaign advertisement was spotted in the video game “Burnout Paradise” by an X-Box 360 player in Ohio.
Today Electronic Arts confirmed it has also sold in-game advertisements to the Obama Campaign in Need for Speed: Carbon and Madden 2009.
