Paris ISIS Terrorists May Have Used PlayStation 4 To Discuss And Plan Attacks

 

After Friday night’s terrorist attacks in Paris which killed at least 127 people and left more than 300 injured, authorities are discovering just how the massacre was planned. And it may involve the most popular gaming console in the world, Sony ’s PlayStation 4.

Alan Hope from the Belgium, Bulletin, report that according to federal home affairs minister Jan Jambon, and according to figures from the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, Belgium has supplied 40 fighters per million inhabitants to fighting in Syria and Iraq – more than any other European country. Denmark comes a distant second place, with 27 fighters per million.

He warned of the growing use by terror networks of the gaming console PlayStation 4, which allows terrorists to communicate with each other and is difficult for the authorities to monitor. “PlayStation 4 is even more difficult to keep track of than WhatsApp, ” he said.

Paul Tassi from Forbes Real Time,  adds  that when the new generation of consoles launched, there were concerns that they would be too light on privacy, with peripherals like Microsofts Kinect and PlayStation’s Camera possibly having the ability to spy on users if say, the government wanted a window into your living room.
