FAIL, @Barry Shitpeas
I take offense at that. I got screwed by this *because* I used my PS3 for both gaming and Linux. PS3 Linux wasn't really there for Desktop use though; the real meat on it is the CellBE processor, which coincidentally *isn't* sold outside of the PS3 since some months before Sony b0rked OtherOS.
After a year and a half of getting stuck with old games, I finally bought another PS3, a phat BC-enabled one. That one is now my gaming rig.
Oh and I'll buy an XBOX 360 when pigs fly. There's no effin' way I'll ever buy the shitbox; I don't like getting pimped for online play. But then, that's MS we're talking about.
