    This looks to be a solid sell for Microsoft which could lead to even more business for the tech giant.

    Shocking they won the bid up against some pretty mainstream heavyweights too.

    All the kids who grew up playing XBOX with their microsoft headsets will now use advanced XBOX headsets for real combat. And who said war games aren't for training kids for real war?

    That's always been the plan. As I recall, some services have long been using customized shooters in training. Marines, maybe?
