Playstation 2 for military use?
According to previously unconfirmed information from the FBI, the Iraqi government is said to have bought large numbers of Playstation 2 units. According to the FBI, around 4000 pieces are said to have been delivered from the USA to the Middle East.
The computing power of the Playstation 2 should not be underestimated: With the 128-bit processor clocked at 300MHz, the Playstation is 2 more powerful than a standard workstation. With several consoles connected together, one could easily muster enough computing power to simulate the trajectories of missiles or even to control them.
