Apparently the Air Force has better things to do with 1,760 PS3s than set up a huge multiplayer “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” battle. Actually, that may be good training for them. Hmm?
Okay, okay, so it’s pretty cool that the Air Force has made a “supercomputer” out of PS3s. They did, however, have to use the older (bigger) PS3s so that they could install Linux on them. It does beg the question, where did they get nearly 1,800 old PS3s? Was there an Ebay rush? Were Gamestops all over the country visited by three-star generals. I think we need to issue a FOIA request.
