I found this to be interesting and curious to see what they find out. Our tax dollars hard at work here...*sarcasm*

cause having 1 xbox 360 in an open space causes itself to overheat, not to mention if you have like 200 of them in lined up...

my question is... are they using slims? that will save them 33% on energy and room =)

Yeah this story was out before the slims even came out.

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

PS3, it does everything.

PS3's are cheaper though compared to buying a bunch of PC's with 3.2 ghz processors with multiple cores. They would have to use older PS3s too since I am guessing they have to put a different OS on them.

The AIR FORCE would have troubles getting an OS on a PS3 slim?

^^Indeed. If they are getting 1700 of them I'm sure they are working with sony and having them put in a special OS, or at least leave it open for them to use whatever OS they want.

No wonder I paid almost 4 grand into taxes and I'm not even getting one fourth of that back.
