us army remote vehicles using xbox 360 controller?



Most video game (http://technabob.com/blog/2007/06/05/us-army-remote-vehicles-using-xbox-360-controller/#) enthusiasts will tell you that the Xbox 360’s joystick is one of the best designed gaming controllers of all time. Now it appears to have gotten the “thumbs up” from the U.S. Army.

From the looks of these photos taken in article over at ZDNet (http://content.zdnet.com/2346-9595_22-67546-1.html), at least some of the Army’s remote SUGVs (Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles) are controlled by what sure looks like an Xbox 360 controller (http://technabob.com/blog/2007/06/05/us-army-remote-vehicles-using-xbox-360-controller/#) to me.

The unmanned ground vehicles are part of the Army’s Future Combat Systems initiative, providing individual troops with improved accessibility to dangerous locations.
The fact that the Army would at least prototype these systems using the 360’s controller makes perfect sense to me, given the familiarity of the design to its likely users.

it has nothing to do with the "familiarity" of the design ... its simply a marketing ploy to get young americans to join the armed forces

It's all about PS3 and Wii now.

other than getting a blu-ray player, and being able to DL PsOne games(fucking sweet), there is no other reason to have a PS3

This was Sony's year. Xbox's line-up was nothing compared to Sony's.

Uncharted 2
Infamous
Killzone 2
Ratchet & Clank

God of War coming up
Heavy Rain coming up

You're living in the past.
