Nice, Y2Kprawn was telling me about this, thanks for the link.
I believe the PS3 frontend will be linux-based anyway, and the Graphics libraries OpenGL-based. Correct me if I’m wrong.
However, shipping a full O\S on the standard consumer console doesn’t fit with Sony’s track record, in my opinion.
The most pertinent example is the PSP. Sony continually builds more protection into each iteration of the system’s firmware, with the express intention of preventing homebrew development. Sure, there are game loaders and such, but they could simply deny Kernel-level access to unsigned code. Instead, they mask the data as corrupted and deny access.[/quote:6158b6d1cd]
Well said. I doubt that this will happen either. Sony have yet to confirm whether it will indeed have a hdd or not yet so we will have to wait and see.
I’ll have to check that out. Do you need high specs to get that dev environment working?
