Will You Be Able to Play Operation Geronimo on Your PlayStation?

First-person shooter videogames have become frighteningly realistic in recent years. As noted by Marc Ambinder last year, Medal of Honor even included "at least six [secret] things" that the Joint Special Operations Command would rather you didn't know. Other games incorporate many real details from missions and local geographies. Given all that, the question may be when -- not if -- the Navy SEAL mission to kill Osama Bin Laden will appear in a videogame.

One commenter on Time's Techland blog was already clamoring to play the operation codenamed Geronimo with his "grandkids, sons, and son-in-law," saying he hoped the makers of his game of choice, SOCOM 4, would "quickly add this mission."
