    Syrian rebels now have a tank operated with a PlayStation controller

    Named for ancient Syria and assembled out of spare parts over the course of a month, the Sham II is sort of rough around the edges, but it's got impressive guts. It rides on the chassis of an old diesel car and is fully encased in light steel that's rusted from the elements. Five cameras are mounted on the tank's exterior, and there's a machine gun mounted on a turning turret. Inside, it kind of looks like a man cave. A couple of flat-screen TVs are mounted on opposite walls. The driver sits in front of one, controlling the vehicle with a steering wheel, and the gunner sits at the other, aiming the machine gun with a PlayStation controller.

    Hopefully he's using a Logitech G27 to control that bad boy. Maybe some Razer tech too.

    Nothing new mate.

    Osama had PlayStation chips converted to missile use in Afghan and many Asia nations have the ability to convert old PlayStation 2 and 3 to missile use

    lol The smoothest and most accurate tank ever. Take the top shooter players on the controller and top GT5 players on the wheel. Take that, dictatorship!

    Just wonder if it's a wireless controller and do they have to charge it from a PlayStation 3

    I guess this settles it. The DS3 is the greatest controller of all time.
