Make your gaming Army Strong with official U.S. Army accessories

Most gaming weapons don't look too realistic, but now there's a full line of accessories that were developed by CTA Digital in tandem with the U.S. Army to give your shooter games some real authenticity.

The official U.S. Army lineup includes three different rifles, plus three types of headset and a backpack for carrying it all into combat from your bedroom to your gaming system.

While the three rifles are strictly for PlayStation systems, the headsets will work with other popular gaming platforms including PC. Pricing was not announced, but availability was said to be "soon."

I'll leave it up to you to decide whether this is just a not-so-subtle attempt by the U.S. Army to get kids thinking about signing up. If you do take the bait, I would recommend not showing up for basic training carrying your official U.S. Army PlayStation rifle.
