Based on my video game skills using these controllers, the Navy will never ask me to serve on one of these subs. Or anything else that uses any control system even remotely resembling the XBox controller. We'd lose the boat before I could find the stupid "A" button that releases the "X" button that causes the "C" button to fire a weapon. Just ask my kids....

The U.S. Navy - 240 years of tradition unhampered by progre .... wait, WHAT?!!?!!!

If they ever need old Atari paddle controllers, I'm pretty sure I've still got some in the attic.

"You sunk my battleship" is going to be heard alot more often.--from the Gaming News blogger

Will the Captain still shout " Belay that order, Mr. Smee ! " ?

"Captain, we're coming under attack!"
"lieutenant, get that 10 y/o kid to bridge right now."

Das Reboot.

Reminded me of this one:

Shall we play a game?

I wonder if there will be cheat codes ?

This might work out - if you are losing the battle can you hit the reset button and try it over?

1. Are the controllers made in China? 2. Does anybody even care?
