US Army enters the Computer Gaming Industry
Who would have ever thought. All those 1st person shooters you've played from the perspective of some army guy are supposed to be tucked away.
I don't know how many of you read PC Gamer, but in this month's issue it opened up a large story.
At the Electronic Entertainment Expo in LA the Army just announced it's brand new, modren, "industry standard," first person shooter. It's supposed to be just as good or better than the games we all pay $50-60 (US) but it is going to be free.
The Army's reportedly going to be giving it away as a recruitment tool. (and to develop tactics if you ask me). It'll first be mostly multi-player only (on great government supplied servers) but PCG reports that every 18-24mo there will be a major updates including several single player campaigns. Anyway I'm not gonna rewrite the entire article, go buy a PGC if you want it.
The name is American A-something A-somthing or "AAA", but the mag's in my car so...
FREE GAMES FOR ALL! lol
