The lights are on
Celebrity appearances in games are becoming more common, but here's one I never expected to see: Apparently you'll be able to meet President Obama in the next Madden game if you take your team all the way to the Super Bowl.
IGN brings word of the odd addition to the long-running football series, part of an effort to make winning the Super Bowl in-game seem more important and exciting. The new Super Bowl ceremonies will also include changing commentary based on what team wins.
Check out the full report at IGN for video of the event in-game. Even as someone who's not very into sports, it seems well-done. Now what's the code to unlock Obama as a player?
Hmm this would be good if he didn't suck
I dislike this idea due to the fact that there are WAY more important game mechanics that EA needs to concern themselves with than adding some realism into what its like to win the Super Bowl. If the offensive line still can't block worth a flying **** this year but "hard" work went into making it so I get to see this instead, note to EA: get rid of the extra fluff in the game until the core mechanics of your game work near perfectly mmk? All of your installments of Madden have been ABSOLUTELY horrid for nearly 6-8 years now and I am waiting for an NFL game that is near NCAA in mechanical quality(although this years NCAA is buggier than the low rent district) Also... update your graphic in game engine already... Your players still look rough on all the edges and rather robotic and rigid and I have seen the same animations for years... update... update.. update.. You only have so much time in a year for each new game, and all of us would appreciate seeing our game fresh and working rather than Obama getting a jersey for 20 years of a Dynasty(cause we are all fairly sure you didn't think that out either)
FAIL! Can we have Romney,Bush, or Palin in a Colts jersey please!
Oh goodness.....I come to this sight to get away from all of the political rhetoric and bs. Why can't ya'll just be easy and take it to a message board or something.

Why is Obama as big as all the football players?
If it's in the game, it's in the game. I dig the realism because that's what happens in real life when you win the Super Bowl.
I'm glad that I don't care about sports games, because this would be a huge insult to me. Well, atleast Bush never made a cameo in a video game, just think of how horrific that would have been...
Everyones shoulders look freaked up
PRESS UP,DWN,UP,DWN,DWN,DWN,and both TRIGGERS to unlock G.Bush,and Barbara Bush.
This and Burnout Paradise is SPOT ON! Obama is truly in his own element as a CARICATURE. Honestly I don't mind that they put my President in a video game other than the fact you never saw George Bush in any video game (other than the ones where he is marketed as a fool). The progressive agenda rolls on... down. Most of us know that the reason why Obama is marketed so loudly is to make up for any substance he is as a Community Organiz... er President.
Watch the boondocks episode on Obama. Nuff said.
There have been no stock market crashes in the past year. I consider Obama's job so far a great success.
Yay for realism in madden!
Page One: Political arguments and assertions flung like water balloons all over the place.
Page Two: Arguments and statements more related to the game itself.
Obama must love this. If my team wins the super bowl in year 20 of the franchise, he's still there to congratulate me. All hail dictator Obama: it's what he's always wanted.
Seriously, this is stupid. I wasn't planning on buying the game this year anyway, but this clinches it for me.
i could care less who it is. it seems gimmicky more than anything, i would have rather they spend that time on gameplay than a cut scene that doesn't add anything to the game.
people getting pissed and boycotting and canceling pre orders just because its obama that they added in are stupid. seriously. get over yourselves.
is that a screenshot of the wii version
Political viewpoints aside, any one man who manages to piss off this many rednecks in the country by simply existing gets a pass in my book.
