Branded rifles, communications gear, and more are to be introduced to popular games in order to boost recruitment.

In a move that will undoubtedly create some controversy, the United States Army is introducing peripherals for some of the video game world's most popular titles, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. CTA Digital, the company that manufactures gaming devices for Playstation 3, Xbox, and Wii, will be making the officially endorsed devices.

Some of the devices will include a ‘Sniper Action Rifle,' ‘Elite Force Assault Rifle,' ‘Commando Assault Rifle,' and ‘covert style' microphone for multi-player entertainment, all with a high level of authenticity, including the Army's logo.
