PlayStation 3 to come with Linux.

Possibly the PS3

Great news for all you Linux geeks/gamers the new PS3s are going to come with a hard disk pre-installed with Linux.

. . . the gaming console will ship with an upgradable 60GB hard drive pre-installed with Linux . . .

In addition to running Linux from its hard-drive, the PS3 is expected to be available with various Linux-based productivity packs that turn the game into a computing appliance for special applications such as digital video editing.

Additionally, the PS3 will have network interfaces, and will avail users of network-based services such as “matchmaking, messaging, rankings, friends lists, voice/video chat, in-game shopping, and game downloads,” according to 1up.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is just another reason why, despite the delays, I am holding out for a PS3. Sure, I am going to have to hold out for a long time since they’re going to cost $800 for the first couple months. But I know that good things come to those who wait, and my NCAA Football 2007 will be that much sweeter after all of my perservering.

  1. Linux actually runs pretty good on PS3. Now if you can only install Windows on it.
