A group of protesters gathered together in Philadelphia this morning and marched down to the Franklin Mills Mall to a US Army Recruitment Center.

The purpose was to show its disdain for the Army’s use of videogames as a recruitment tool.

This particular recruitment branch uses PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles loaded with FPS titles to capture the attention of gaming enthusiasts there to buy a pair of dockers.

GamePolitics was on hand Tweeting the action, and it looks as though some got arrested. Go figure.
