The 'Soft might be able to piss away $4 billion (gasp) on the Xbox, but could it foot the bill for military dictatorship? To put things in prespective, Shannon Drake over at WarCry broke out some figures. For example, a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier goes for $4.5 billion (crew and jets not included), while B-2 stealth bomber price tags at $2.2 billion (bombs extra). Tanks and large guns are cheaper. Rocks are almost free.
Just think of the amazing game consoles the U.S. Government could make if it wasn't so interested in invading other countries.
What Is $4 Bil? [WarCry] Thanks Joseph!
