    Pretty cool. Way to use Sony's marketing exercise to save money- each PS3 represents way more than $300 of hardware.

    No doubt about that, Sony takes a huge hit on each unit they sell. Pretty sure this is the same type of setup they used to break SSL's encryption. Not positive it was SSL though.
