Gaming Consoles Linked To Terrorist Attacks

This is getting a tad bit out of control. Penitentiaries in the UK have banned Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo DS because officials believe the crooks in the slammer are smart enough to send out messages to other convicts and set up a terror attack. Just don’t let them get online. Doesn’t that solve that whole problem? Criminals shouldn’t have any privileges, but banning gaming consoles is a bit harsh. Maybe it’s just the gamer in me.

The technology in the new generation of computer games makes them a security risk. There is concern that top terror suspects have been using systems already in jails. Radio software is an integral part of the equipment.
