Madden 11 Features Appearance by Obama

IGN

News that President Obama will make a cameo in the latest installment of the popular Madden football games has been feverishly circling through the blogosphere.

According to gaming website IGN, players who manage to lead their team to a Super Bowl victory in Madden NFL '11 will be treated to a special video featuring the full fanfare associated with winning the coveted title, including a meeting with the president of the United States.

You can see a picture from the video at left featuring last year's champions, the New Orleans Saints, with a virtual Mr. Obama greeting the team on the White House's South Lawn where he poses for pictures along with a custom "Obama" jersey -- much like he has done in real life.

The videos and accompanying commentary after the win are tailored to each specific team.

This is not the first time Mr. Obama has made an appearance in a video game. During the 2008 presidential campaign, the Obama camp placed an advertisement in the racing game Burnout Paradise reminding players that "Early Voting Has Begun".
