The US Army has said that its incursion into video games has been a surprise tactical hit.
A spokesman claimed that there were more than 400,000 downloads last weekend of its free America's Army game, which is designed to attract more young people into the military.
The game was developed by the Naval Post-Graduate School and the Army is making it available for free as a recruiting tool.
Launched on US Independence Day from the Army's main recruiting site and other web outlets, it quickly became a major bandwidth-burner.
Already more than 240,000 players have completed the 'basic training' part of the game to qualify for online play, and the Army has had to bring in more servers to cope with the demand.
