Playstation3: Gaming on a nuclear level :-)

Read it on Bloomberg that IBM will use processors designed for the long awaited Playstation3 video game console to build the world's fastest computer which will be used for work on nuclear weapons! The computer will be able to calculate 1,000 trillion calculations per second or a "petaflop" and a maximum speed capacity of 1,600 trillion calculations a second. According to IBM, the computer will occupy an area equivalent to three basketball courts! Can't wait to add this beast into my collection of video game consoles...
