No PS3s for British prisoners

ITV is reporting that the U.K.'s Home Secretary, John Reid, has made the shocking and momentous decision to ban Sony's PlayStation jails. Yes, that's right. The reasoning is that the high-end gaming console, which went on sale in the U.K. last week, could be used to send or receive radio signals with its built-in Wi-Fi and connectivity features.

But, um, isn't it jail? They don't need an excuse to ban video game consoles in jail! Here I was thinking that convicts were fed nasty food and spent their days breaking big rocks up into little pieces. That must just be a product of Hollywood deception.

Oh, well, I guess they still can play their PS2s and Xboxes.
