We're back to a console bargain game at Play Asia for this week. Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. for Xbox 360 is available for the low low price of just $24.90! That's a 50% reduction, stocks are limited and only one per customer, so don't miss out!
The game is also region free, so it will work on any Xbox 360 console in any region and features various language options (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian). Games featuring the Tom Clancy name are usually great games. The Rainbow Six Vegas and Ghost Recon Advance Warfighter games are some of my favourite shooters this generation. This is the first Tom Clancy game to feature air combat. So if you'd like to shoot some bogey's down Tom Clancy style, then please proceed to the checkout.
"As the era of the nation-state draws toward its end, the world of warfare is evolving rapidly. New challenges demand new solutions, sometimes with unpredictable outcomes.
For many years, state-sponsored militaries have struggled to maintain and modernize their forces. Increasing budget restrictions and difficulties in recruiting skilled personnel have led many countries to seek other solutions. More and more nations now rely increasingly on Private Military Companies (PMC) – elite mercenary groups staffed with equally elite personnel - to support their field operations.
PMCs have proven to be excellent partners in respect to efficiency, skills, low prices, and reliability. They’ve been able to fulfill most of the mission normally handled by regular armies, without risking political fallout.
In time, these private military corps diversified their field of operations, from mere securing land objectives to motorized assault and counter-intelligence. It was not long before a few of these PMC secured enough resources to require being involved complete support air and sea-bound operations.
With each passing year, the PMCs expand their influence and scope of activity. Initially just consultants, they are now involved in surveillance, logistics, site security, and other essential roles. In order to keep the war machine going most of the PMC warranted firms dealing with other sources of income such as mining, oil extraction, airliners, goods manufacturing etc. Ensuring a steady flow of currency allowed these companies to operate a tighter game against their opposition. Each year, they come closer to serving as fully operational field units, and their services are so widely used they’re already essential. Pandora’s Box has been opened. There’s no getting rid of the PMCs now."
