    So I take it this was the actual reason why Thrill Kill never saw a retail release?

    If the Taliban support PS3, what more do you need to know that it's the superior system?

    It only does everything indeed.

    They've used the Nintendo DS, washer timers, cell phones, pagers, walkie talkies, timer circuit boards, and Christmas lights. It's not like this is anything really new and unlikely they can mass produce this as cheaply as what they've been doing. It is, however, why they don't have nice things.

    couldn't they have found something cheaper as a detonator?

    I don't even think that's a PS1 controller but instead of of those cheapo Chinese NES/SNS on chip things which would have a mechanical switch you might be able to use to to activate an electric match.

    I always knew playstation was too high-tech for resourceful people, and that was just a ps one controller.

    Wouldn't it be cheaper for the terrorists just to.... you know, BUY EXPLOSIVE SUPPLIES! I mean, it isn't like they are.... RARE around the world!

    This is just another thing that shows that the United States is IN OVER IT'S DAMNED HEAD in Iraq and Afghanistan.... the first, we shouldn't have gone into in the first place.
    The second, Bush should have his NUTS in a vise for lying to us about the level of support that the Taliban was giving Al-Qaida.

    Perhaps the controller was used to activate a cheat to grant the terrorists temporary invulnerability, infinite ammo or to enable additional fighters to materialize out of thin air!
    No wonder the foreign invaders are having a hard time ending the war. -.-

    *Sigh...* If only I could configure my controller buttons to manipulate time, make someone disappear, put money in my piggy bank....

    Blown way out of proportions. The controller is an initiator device meaning it's not more than a wired switch. You could do the same thing with Ethernet cable.

    I think this classifies as an act of terrorism:

    I'm no expert on the history but I remember hearing about an interesting and very ethically questionable military tactic;

    The enemy was dug in and the Chinese army was sent in to invade them. Don't know if it was a new conquest or a rebellion issue later. In any case, the Chinese army would have overwhelmed them eventually, but the cost in lives and time would have been too dear, an oriental "300" in the making. So the commander did this; "You insult us! We do not need as many men as we have brought to defeat you!" and at his signal several thousand soldiers instantly killed themselves. They then attacked a now fleeing enemy and won with hardly any new casualties. The simple math, based on many other battles, he'd have lost far more men than the ones he sacrificed by this trick and it would have taken him months for a conquest that shouldn't have lasted a day.

    So, I'm bringing this up to try to say anything good about AmeriKKKa. But I fear I've failed, for no spin, even Faux Noose can spin this right.

    The USA probably spent, what, $3 million on that expedition? (counting Halliburton jacking) And the bombs will be replaced by Osama or some other Saudi Arabian royalty who feels like "Exporting Jihad" in the expenditure of 1 penny by comparison... And this time, instead of a bunch of cruddy ancient ordinance and jerry-rigged stuff, they'll get the top of the line from the "Merchants of Death" the USA lets fund the petty dictators.

    Just one man's opinion, but IMO it's also like that Osprey thing.

    They spend US$60 million to make a working model, fill it full of recruiting poster Marines and lift it up. Due to the "Square Cube" law, it drops like the brick it resembles killing all aboard, so they build another one, change the software a bit, and fill it full....again and again... Now they are pushing them into Iraq to try to justify their expense, but they are also vulnerable to dust... So, nothing but "Vanilla VIP" runs heavily guarded and low enough a fall is survivable. All they are missing is showing videos of this to the insurgents who spend US$3 (or nothing, if a Cluster bomblet gets caught in a tree branch) to build a roadside bomb to kill/maim a dozen troops. "You think you want to kill us? Look how WE want to kill us!" And maybe they'd go; "How can we fight such barbarians?" and just try to convert troops to Islam so they'd desert and form their own "Petty government" and blackmail the USA for the oil, but not be that mean to them.

    Wasting money is what large organizations be they for profit companies or governments do best. You'd be hard pressed to find one that doesn't lose money in a variety of ways.
