I thought this was going to be about the artillery app for the NETT Warrior.  :beer:

 Nations  do not need to build gyroscopes from scratch for ballistic missiles. All they need is to buy a couple of smartphones and hot wire it to a ballistic missile. That does solve one of your problems. To have a successful ICBM you need a small warhead, gyroscopes and propellant. With this, they have solved one out of the three.

Aren't some of the game consoles subject to export controls because they're powerful enough to control missiles?

Back in 2000 the Japanese imposed export controls on the Sony Playstation2 console because it could have been used in missile guidance systems.  As per this article - http://www.onislam.net/english/health-and-science/technology/422512.html -

However, Japanese authorities believe that the console could be used in missile-guidance systems given its high-quality computer graphics and memory card. The government therefore designated the PlayStation2 (PS2) as a product subject to its Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Control Law, Asahi Shimbun said.

I believe you. There are so many dual use technology out there it is impossible to stop it. Now, every nutball country will be snapping up smartphones from the Internet so they can plug it into their ballistic missiles
