tell me ur thoughts cause i am bout to try it
earlier today i was talking with these two guys. one was from sierra and the other worked for sony and they told me about a ton of shit that they probably shouldn't have told me. but one of the things that i can talk to everybody about (since it's no secret) is that you can run PC games on your ps3.
firstly, you have to have yellowdog linux installed on your ps3. if you have a 60 gig you should do a half and half partition on your hard drive because otherwise you won't have enough storage on your hard drive. i have a 120 gig so there was no problem with that.
secondly, you have to have an installation disc for windows XP. using linux, you can install windows onto your ps3.
thirdly, you have to have a pc game. that's it, all you have to do is put the disc in and install it and you can play it.
i was playing halo on it (ironic don't you think? playing halo on a ps3 that is), the game ran perfectly. i turned the visuals, sound, resolution and everything else all the way up and i didn't run into a single problem. i was amazed to see it run so well. i then put battlefront 2 in and i turned everything up, once again, the ps3 ran the whole thing so perfectly that i nearly shit myself. my ps3 runs games better than my pc.
i think this will help all those people that say that they can't keep up with the price of maintaining a good gaming pc. i can't wait for gears to come out for the pc so that i can royally pimp slap all of those 360 owners by playing gears on a ps3. i'll start playing all my pc games on it from now on. i won't get bio shock though until it comes out to the ps3. i would rather get the ps3 version than the pc version because they are going to upgrade the ps3 version a lot over the pc and 360 version.
