Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has spent $44,465.78 on in-game advertising in the run-up to the US election, Gamespot reports.

The campaign, which was widely reported as appearing in Burnout Paradise, started on October 6 and ends on November 3.

The ads span 18 games, apparently.

Details were released through the Obama campaign’s pre-election filing with the Federal Election Commission.
