Obama's presidential campaign hits video games

It seems Democratic American presidential candidate Barack Obama is stretching his campaign to video games, after in-game campaign posters supporting him for president have cropped up in nine EA games.

Apparently put there by Microsoft-owned advertising company, Massive, you'll only see the posters in Xbox 360 versions of the games.

The ads can be spotted in games that include Burnout Paradise, Madden 09, NASCAR 09, NBA Live 08, Need for Speed Carbon, Need for Speed ProStreet, NFL On Tour, NHL 09 and Skate.

However, the lack of John McCain posters is not an indication of Microsoft or EA's voting preferences. Apparently the Republican candidate declined when Massive approached him about running an in-game campaign. Get with the kids, John.

You'll need to be connected to Xbox Live from one of ten state in America to see them.
