<nettime> Re: America's Army



The U.S. Army announced that more than 400,000 
people have downloaded the service's new recruiting game since it became 
available last week . . . "America's Army" is a pair of games, one a 
squad-based shooter imitating military tactics and another a simulation game 
that replicates a typical Army career path . . . "With this great demand, 
we've taken all measures to ensure that everyone who wants to play the game 
will be able to," said Lt. Col. Casey Wardynski, project originator and 
director. "We've increased the number of servers, increased the number of 
gamers that can play in a mission, and are releasing software this week to 
let gamers host their own servers."
