Nothing will make you want to stop playing your favorite video games more than switching back to the Xbox 360 dashboard and watching the 2012 US election. Microsoft revealed today that starting on August 27th, Xbox Live members will be able to access the Election 2012 hub which will feature NBC News coverage, information about Obama and Romney, live coverage of the debates and conventions and even daily polls (like why is this here?).
If for some reason you aren’t registered to vote you can even try to register through your game console cause why not. Now this probably is only relevant to those who live in the United States, as Australians, Europeans and Asians probably couldn’t give half a damn about the election.
