I have a feeling its going to be a lot longer than it took for the 360. Because Sony is letting the PS3 do all this homebrew stuff out of the box, it will take a bit longer for people to find reasons/motivation to hack it.
360 hasn't been modded yet, although its drive was within a few months. If you want to say the so-called "mod chip" that can implement that DVD hack without plugging directly into a computer is a mod... you're still talking most of a year. Technically, PS3 was "hacked" by that standard the same day it was released due to the hard drive. And more fully hacked with bootable arbitrary OSs before the US launch.
Will PS3 take longer than a year? I'm guessing not at this rate.
And isn't running arbitrary OSs already "hacked"?
