Did you know people in the mid 2000’s would turn their PlayStation into a desktop computer?

NO really?

Yeah it was totally a thing. If you bought the Linux for PlayStation 2 kit you could do it at home.

The kit allowed you to make your home console into a working and functioning desktop computer. It allowed you to program your own games and create applications that you could outsource.

The downside is that you couldn’t sell physical copies of your game via DVD Rom or CD’s. However you could sell digital copies online but the programs you created could only work on a Linux PlayStation and not any other unmodified PlayStation.

A very powerful tool indeed for the tech savvy individual.

The more you know!!
