Guys, considering the unit has been out 2 weeks before they started getting this stuff done, why can't you see it's a pretty good start. How long did it take for a nice user friendly XBOX snes emulator to get going on xbox.. Months!
Once the developers and hackers get access to PS3's and start writing some gui's and interfaces there should be nothing that ps3 can't do that your current console of choice can.. Just give the programmers some time to make some apps.. Xbox and XBMC didn't come overnight.
The nice thing is that XBMC's video backbone is based on mplayer, which has already proven to work perfectly in PS3 Linux (in full resolution HDTV). So it's all coming.
It had linux preinstalled on it. It is not the same thing as running unsigned code from the hardware lvl; i.e., hacking it. Plus the first SNES emulator on the xbox was snes9x, and the very first version of it ran at full speed without audio glitches. So you tell me?
The ps2 also had a sony endorsed linux on it, and did it do anything for the ps2 mod scene? Not much.
Point is? Linux is not the answer/replacement for hacking a console for unsigned code.This post has been edited by Foe-hammer: Dec 10 2006, 06:23 AM
