Sometimes I think the millitary adopts these types of technology purely in an effort to woo recruits from the younger, "hipper" generation. When I
was in high school, the big thing was Doom. Suddenly, shocker of shockers, we started getting recruitment propaganda touting the millitary's
acquisition of a contract with Williams games for a special modified build of Doom that was geared towards helping train our millitary. Personally, I
think it's more than a little ridiculous to think the most advanced, technologically equipped fighting force on the planet can gain anything from a
consumer level electronic video game console which isn't even close to cutting edge when compared to it's competitors the PS3 & XBOX360.
It reminds me of the kids who used to play flight simulator on their Commodore 64s and suddenly thought they were qualified to fly a 747.
