Authorities discovered £12,000 ($23,758 USD) stuffed inside four game consoles belonging to a man suspected of running an illegal PSP memory card and chipping business. Videogamer reports that during the raid at the man's home in the Tower Hamlet section of London, authorities started taking apart consoles with the expectation of finding illegal mod chips -- instead they found bags of cash where the hard drive should have been.

I case you're wondering, the cash was stored in one original Xbox holding £5,925, and three PS2s with £2,835, £2,025 and £1,425. It seems no next-gen consoles were harmed in the implementation of the illegal business.
