When re-creating a historical period for a game, authenticity can separate the good games from the poseurs. Electronic Arts today announced it is bringing more realism to its Medal of Honor series by signing a deal with Jeep. Several of the Jeep vehicles that were used in World War II will be featured in the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and Xbox games, scheduled for release in 2007. The Willys-Overland Jeep "will appear for extended, action-packed sequences in several missions." Gamers will be able to use the Jeeps for simple transportation, or they can take control of a mounted weapon and blast away enemies while on the move.

Want the latest news about Medal of Honor: Airborne?
they should make the game like alllied assualt since after that one they kill the MOH series and lack of support since only one freaking patch came out
cool now that the willy's jeep is in the game it will be more cool than ever but if it was the best it have to drive a tank ............ but medal of honor is coolest game on earth !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the series in fact the first Medal of Honor was the first WWII game I had ever played and I have been addicted ever since and I am sure this game will be a hit as well!! I can't wait!!!!
hey why didnt they mention the Wii: featured in the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and Xbox games on the list of games all they said were
I really like this idea. I've actually never been opposed to in game advertising if it's done right. Like if a game that has a setting inside an office building wanted to use a real Coke machine instead of a non-discript soda machine, that would be cool with me. Actually, IMO it might add some realism. The other good thing about in game advertising that's done properly is that with the rising cost of development, in game advertising hopefully will mean those costs aren't passed on to the consumer. If more games found a way to do in game advertising that wasn't redicously out of place so much it made gamers mad, perhaps we could get back down closer to the $50 price point for games again.
''PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and Xbox games'' Yeh, leave the PC out, thanks EA! *end sarcasm*
Maybe they'll license real weapons from the Springfield Armory too. Or maybe John Garand will make an apperance.
killer as long as my compass doesnt have a jeep sign on it or there's subliminal messages like "thank go jeep delivered these bullets on time. Jeep solid as a rock."
This is really how in-game advertising should work. I don't want to see modern bilboards in 1943! Good one on EA.
