PS3 x 1,760 = Awesome

VP of Alternate Usage

Finally, PlayStation 3 finds a niche: The Air Force has hooked up 1,760 PS3s together to form the 35th fastest supercomputer in the world. It cost them about $2 million, a lot less than if they’d done it the regular way. It’s called the “Condor Cluster” and it’ll be used for real-time satellite surveillance and problem solving.

Plus, it streams Netflix.

    All of that is the equivalent to one xbox 360. PS3 x 1,760= Xbox 360.
