Watching "The Kingdom" tonight, and what do I see on the "PC" screens in the Saudi cybercafe shot? GRAW 360, specifically MP on Nowhere. :D

There was another shot that looked like it might have been GRAW PC or GRAW Xbox, but I couldn't tell, just that it was from FPWV.

I was in Mosul in '03 and stepped inside a computer store, saw an advertisement for some game highlighting the Gulf War, from a US perspective. I don't think many of the Iraqis were playing it though, too busy looking at porn...

Something sort of related that I found interesting: I was watching the high school football "reality" show Two a Day's (an MTV show), and in scenes where they show the football players playing on a console, they show the TV screen but blur it out.

Saw Randy playing America's Army on the 360 in the warden's office (warden is played by Craig T. Nelson) on "My Name is Earl." Though they did not give any indication as to what the game was.

I think they also showed the warden playing Rock Band or Guitar Hero in another episode.

Well, after a more (than usual) stress-filled day at work, I followed Ser's recommendation and rented The Kingdom after work. It's a solid movie worth a viewing. I was pleasantly surprised too because it has a bit more depth than the usual Hollywood action flick.

I thought the two actors portraying the main Saudi police characters did a great job

Not surprising it was "Michael Mannish" since he's one of the producers. although Peter Berg was Director. It was also amzing how they created a Saudi street scene in the middle of Arizona ...

Cool to see the snippet of GRAW :thumbsup: I wonder if they asked Ubi for permission :P

We usually rent out a few films every couple of weeks but havnt done in ages what with Christmas and everything. Just checked and this one came out here in October so i'll check it out Saturday night :)

I've seen the 360 pop up in quite a few tv shows and soap opera's lately..... its even used in the Ministry and Defense adverts for recruitment lol
