This is only one of many benefits you will be enjoying with a proxy server. A Sony Playstation 3 is capable of so much more than merely playing video games. Its powerful processor allows high definition playback to be a breeze, while the Blu-ray drive makes for the complete home theater experience.

The ability to dual-boot into Linux is also an added benefit. This allows you to have a full computer right there in your Playstation 3's hard drive.

With all of these amazing benefits, the Sony Playstation 3's high power computing capabilities, of course, have some minor snares that open you up for attack. Like every other computer that is connected to a network, there is always the chance of being attacked by a hacker.

Having a firewall set up on your computer can help combat these attacks, but the Playstation 3 does not have that capability. So the next best solution is to set up a proxy server. A proxy server acts as a gateway between the outside world and your computer, which in this case will be a Sony Playstation 3. The Playstation 3 will connect through the network to your computer, which will allow it access to the Internet and the computer's files itself.

This way the outside world can never know what your Internet protocol address is, severely limiting your chances of being hacked. This acts as an anonymizing proxy server, clearing all the personal information from the reach of those who should not have it. When the Sony Playstation 3 was introduced in , programmers released software that would help users take full advantage of this; but with the introduction with new firmware versions, its uses halted.
