According to a report by CBSnews several members, and former members of the US Navy SEALs force SEAL team Six have been disciplined for their work as consultants on the recently released first person shooter game Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

The report claims that seven of the soldiers have been disciplined so far, for divulging classified information, and supposedly violating an unwritten Navy SEAL code of staying out the media spotlight, with letters of reprimand allegedly taking away half of their pay for two months, and damaging their chances of promotion.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter was heavily promoted by EA and developer Danger Close for its heavy focus on military authenticity, due to the involvement of many active and former military personal in consultation with the game's creation, also featuring them in several of the game's promotional trailers.

That attention to detail was largely lost on critics however, with the game being widely panned by reviewers (AusGamers 4.0/10). Medal of Honor: Warfighter is now available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Here are some fun facts

In 1987, SEAL Team Six was dissolved. A new unit, dubbed The United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG), also known as DEVGRU for short, was formed, essentially as ST6's successor. Reasons for the disbanding are varied, but the name SEAL Team Six is often used in reference to DEVGRU.


In a 2010 article, Marc Ambinder wrote that DEVGRU's designation had been changed by the Defense Department to a new name; the name itself was classified. 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (Delta Force) was renamed Army Compartmented Elements (ACE). Despite the official name changes, Team 6's original name remains widely recognized; Disney filed to trademark "SEAL Team 6" the day after the Bin Laden raid, but withdrew after the Navy fought back with trademark applications of its own.

It's just a gimmick with the game though. Nothing seems more "real" about it than any other FPS.

Even the whole Nations thing is a fizz.

I don't believe it at all. Serving personnel would never involve themselves with a game. Former members would not lose any pay...they aren't being paid by the US DoD anymore.

So it's complete and utter bulls***.
