Obama invading video games confirmed.

Right then.

Yesterday our dear Brad Nicholson reported that Barack Obama is running campaign ads in Burnout paradise. While many D-Toiders were quick to point out that such an image is easy to shoop (while some were less quick), theatlantic.com is running the story as fact. Moreover, gigaom.com has apparently spoken to EA rep Holly Rockwood (whose name sounds suspiciously like a Hannah Montana ripoff...anyone?)

gigaom.com reporting:

“I can confirm that the Obama campaign has paid for in-game advertising in Burnout,” Holly Rockwood, director of corporate communications at Electronic Arts, the game’s publisher, told me via email, noting that EA regularly allows ad placements in their online games.

Also, politico.com has picked up tons of other Obama ads in games ranging from Guitar Hero to NHL 09 to Skate.

I suppose we can confirm this one now... but has anybody actually seen one of these yet?
