TV Commercial

I just saw an ad for the game on TV a few minutes ago on Discovery Channel. It consisted of some gameplay clips as well as some clips of real life paintball, and gave the game's website, http://www.pbsting.com/.
I wouldn't have expected them to advertise due to the fact that the main audience is real life paintballers, and most of us had already heard of the game.

Anyone else seen this yet?

Have seen it a few times

I was also surprised to see this commercial for it. I ordered it off EBgames' website because there was not enough "demand" for the game to be released on it's release date (Nov. 19th) at actual stores; or so I was told by an employee. I was frustrated with that fact, and of course the day I ordered the game off the internet, it goes in stock at the stores near my house. I want that rap song from the commercial though. Haha

I saw the same commerical and I believe the track you're talking about is the same one that's in the game called "Heavy" by BLloyd.

Its the song that goes something like "some base and some treble, you're a lightweight and this is heavy metal; this is crunch time, its time to lock and load, I'm a rock star I rock n' roll"....or somthing like that. "B.Lloyd" is Brandon Lloyd who plays for the Chicago Bears. He recorded the track with the help of the Phunk Junkeez.

He mentions the track and the game here: http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/story?id=3738888

You can hear the track under the music section of his site: http://www.blloyd.com/
