The technical and cultural boundaries between modeling, simulation, and games are increasingly blurring, providing broader access to capabilities in modeling and simulation and further credibility to game-based applications. The purpose of this study is to provide a technical assessment of Modeling, Simulation, and Games (MSaG) research and development worldwide and to identify future applications of this technology and its potential impacts on government and society. Further, this study identifies feasible applications of gaming and simulation for military systems; associated vulnerabilities of, risks to, and impacts on critical defense capabilities; and other significant indicators and warnings that can help prevent or mitigate surprises related to technology applications by those with hostile intent. Finally, this book recommends priorities for future action by appropriate departments of the intelligence community, the Department of Defense research community, and other government entities. The Rise of Games and High Performance Computing for Modeling and Simulation will serve as a useful tutorial and reference document for this particular era in the evolution of MSaG. The book also highlights a number of rising capabilities facilitated by MSaG to watch for in the coming years.cafes that exist predominantly to play MMOGs like Lineage and World of Warcraft or online team shooters like CounterStrike. These Internet game rooms are dominant throughout Asia, especially korea and China, but exist in the Middle East as well. ... Unlike PCs, consoles generally have fixed hardware and as such cannot be easily upgraded or altered. The current generation of consoles includes the Microsoft Xbox 360, the Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3), and the Nintendo Wii, shown inanbsp;...
