US Army Games for Free
4:01 PM | Vern Xiong | Comment on this story

Chris Morris from CNN and Money Magazine comments on the US Army's presence at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) and their intent on investing money into games that would reach the video game crowd, one of the largest growing populations of young adults, for training and recruiting.

The games will be published under the label, America's Army, with each title budgeted around 7 million dollars each. While that's not too terribly expensive compared to other games out there today, it's still in the high end part of the ball park. The main issue here is that the US Army will be releasing it for free.

Some feel that the Army may be spending too much on the development of these games, but Morris commends them from at least knowing who their target audience is. It's young adults who are more and more drawn to videogames these days, than they are to joining the army.
