Yes, it's true. Wii and 360, eat your hearts out. While Sony had stated thatt Linux would be installable on the PS3 (and it's true), they have left it as an Open Platform. Under the PS3's settings, it gives you an option to "Install Other OS." This possibly means that we'll see versions of Linux, Windows, and OS X (the latter two most likely hacked versions) installable on this machine. http://playstation.com/ps3-openplatform/index.html Just as well, the entire breakdown of the PS3's functions can be found here: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/index.html Very interesting things they allow you to do with this console, including mass-storage devices (USB External HDD's), custom screensavers, naming the actual console itself, and many other things.
