According to Stars and Stripes, the US army has budgeted $50 million for a “games for training” program starting in 2010 and, “In addition to the $50 million, the Army gaming unit has an undisclosed additional budget to purchase a state-of-the-art commercial video game system that will be fielded for training in February.”
