- It appears Sony's PlayStation really does do everything like their TV commercials state, as recently gamingtarget
shared a video on YouTube of Taliban militants who use PlayStation Controllers as a detonator device in Afghanistan.
To quote: "Veteran war correspondent for Fox News Channel Steve Harrigan
discovered that militants got their hands on a familiar game controller-turned-detonator while he was embedded with U.S. and Afghan troops last year in Jaji, Afghanistan.
There, troops raided a suspected bomb-making house thanks to an Afghan informant who was paid $2,000.
‚‚ā¨úA farmer‚‚ā¨ôs house, in a locked shed: jackpot,‚‚ā¨Ě he exclaims before almost poetically listing what troops found inside. It is an enemy, they can build weapons even out of garbage.
The garbage Harrigan refers to includes a clear-blue original PlayStation controller, one that‚‚ā¨ôs so old it pre-dates the dual analog sticks.
‚‚ā¨úSomething as simple [that] a solider may've thrown out, because their Sony PlayStation was broken, can be used as an initiator device,‚‚ā¨Ě explains an unidentified U.S. Army Ranger who was holding the controller and involved in the operation."
