Actually there was an article an /. not too long ago about how PS2's have
export restrictions due to the massive computing power stored within.
I haven't seen the specs for a PS2 so I won't say its true or not. I just
remember the old article saying that it was feared they might be used for
weapons research which is exactly what /. claims Iraq is doing.
Could be true... screweyer stuff has happened..
