Xbox at War, yep, Americans use Xbox 360 Controllers to control a UAV. Looks so funny, would make the enemy wonder for a minute.

It certainly made me wonder for a moment!
It looks like all those other troops in the photo are just about to charge out from behind their truck, and there's Dave at the back, "Just one more minute, guys, I've almost got this boss beat!"
Still, it kind of makes sense. It'd be a cheap, off the shelf solution that would probably be sufficient for testing. Though I'd guess they'd need something a little more robust in the field.
Just be thankful they didn't use a Wii controller!
"Stop dancing around, Dave! We're supposed to be in cover!"
This is almost as sickening as a show i saw on discovery "Future Weapons". It's not that they use the controller persé, it's that killing sons, children, grandparents and mothers (on both sites of the conflict) is somehow "cool". Saying that's cool is like saying that using IED's is "cool" because they use household
I just can't find the humour in 4000 americans killed and 80.000 iraqi's.
Nothing in a war is cool
Edit: i'm not suggesting that pickle and brett are in anyway wrong here, cause they aren't. It's just that war is sickening and i get riled up.

They should use a sixxaxis controller, they are less cumbersome.
It does raise moral questions about microsoft!

You can argue that it makes it safer for the soldiers, I guess. Not that it makes it any better, I suppose...
we use them too, that is the british army, one of my section just trasfered to the RA and heflys them, he said the six axis doesnt have the durability of a xbox 360 controler!
that is awesome though, very funny.
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.

I'm thinking that he's aiming in with his Ion cannon, really... Or are they playing IRL Full Spectrum Warrior perhaps? "Guys, relax, I know this level!"
"Today we going to test the latest artillery piece that can hit the BAD GUYS between the eyes from x thousand kilometeres away. My name is Mr War Lover and I'm a former NAVY SEAL and I'm BADASS because I talk with a LOW voice ALL THE TIME. Hell yeah."
Makes me cringe every time I see it.
