Our president, Barack Obama will soon be advertising in Madden NFL 13 and other EA games, so if you see the face of our commander-in-chief pop up when you're putting your plays together, do not panic.
Advertisements for the Democratic nominee will run in games across multiple platforms including Madden NFL 13 on consoles, casual games on Pogo.com, and other EA's mobile games including Battleship, Tetris and Scabble. According to EA, the target is young people in battleground states such as Ohio, Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire and Virginia.
As yet, Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president, has yet to appear in officially sponsored video game ads, but according to EA, the offer is open.
"EA accepts advertising in our games from credible political candidates, similar to a TV, radio or online channel," an EA rep. told GamePolitics. "The ads do not reflect any political policy for EA."
The Feed officially endorses Cthulhu for president ("No More Years!"), but urges its readers to vote for non-imaginary leaders when election day rolls around in November, if for no other reason than the smug satisfaction you can broadcast to non-voters and the free stickers. Don't forget the free stickers.
As longtime followers of G4 know, Obama has previously spoken on the danger the Madden Curse holds for our nation. Check it out in the X-Play comedy video below:
