Wi-Fi Enabled Consoles Banned From UK Slammers

Prisoners in the UK won’t be able to enjoy the goodness of new generation consoles that offer Wi-Fi connectivity, and this very same spokesperson also let out on the following.

“Prisoners in England and Wales have never been allowed access to wireless enabled technology such as that used in some games consoles. A decision was taken some years ago that the then current generation of games consoles should be barred because the capability to send or receive radio signals is an integral part of the equipment. Future games consoles with this ability will be banned. This ban applies to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS.”

Guess our friends in the slammer will have to be content with the PSOne and PS2.
