Mobile Entertainment Gaming System (MEGS)
Packaged in small, rugged containers, our Mobile Entertainment Gaming System (MEGS) provides entertainment options to service members in remote locations. Within minutes of opening a MEGS, they are watching a movie or playing a video game.
A tent is quickly transformed into a movie theater or game room, allowing those in harm’s way a chance to relax and recharge. In 2014, 92 MEGS were distributed around the world and supported more than 14,000 service members. Most have been sent to Afghanistan; however, MEGS have also been sent to support units deployed to Australia, Guam, Philippines, and Marines on Embassy duty. To keep our troops connected with the latest technology, MEGS distributed in 2015 will include the latest gaming consoles including the XBOX ONE. To better support those deployed or stationed far from home, the USO will increase deliveries to locations in Africa and expand partnerships with U.S. embassies around the world.
