126w ago - Today Engadget.com (linked above) reposts that video game console modder Ben Heck has unveiled his latest ruggedized, self-contained PlayStation 3 suitcase modification in The Ben Heck Show (Episode 9).
The military-grade PlayStation 3 is intended for use in Afghanistan, and features a 22″ LCD screen, built-in speakers, TV tuner, network switch and storage compartment.
Some pictures of it are below, and to quote: "The military-grade portable gaming system was designed and built for a couple working with the military overseas, and it's Pelican's iM2600 Store Case there on the outside keeping things safe and secure from flying shrapnel.
As Ben always does, he managed to carefully place an entire PS3 console deep within the confines of the enclosure, and he even threw in an integrated LCD into the lid to prevent any additional external hookups. Generator equals gametime, as they say."
