As of this time there has been some unconfirmed reports of exploits working on the PS3 but nothing set in stone so for now the only homebrew for the PS3 is the Linux you can install. Via the PSN Store you can pay for and download PS1 games and for those who love the older releases at least its a way to play something other than PS3. The PS3 when cracked (Lets hope we get a custom firmware like the PSP) should be capable of PS2, Dreamcast, N64 and Xbox Emulators at full speed.

    Linux is easy once you learn it. Those who say it's hard to use have only booted it a few times and got irritated by the fact that it doesn't attempt to wipe their asses like MS or Apple do.

    PS3+Linux+500GB hdd=cheap, badass computer. I may buy another for use as a workstation, as cheap as they are.

    When you softmod an Xbox you have the option of using the modded dashboard or the original dashboard.

    Also, very informative wraggster.
    I'd just like to point out that the "mod chip on a memory card" for the ps2 does not work with the latest slim model of the PS2. (did some googling...)
