    thats so limited in features. Imagine if team XBMC could have full access to the PS3's hardware


    Im considering buying a Mac Mini for HD XBMC but it feels like a retarded decision considering i already have a PS3 that hardware-wise is completely capable of doing what i need :(

    Get a WDliveTV if you want a media streamer.

    I got a feeling that as soon as someone hacks the ps3, sony has a firmware update that will make it unhackable again :o

    You can already stream pretty much anything to it using PS3 Media Server.

    While nothing it impossible...there is no reason to crack the PS3.

    50GB BD-R's are $20/disc.

    And you still have to get by the fact that the PS3's seventh CPU does nothing but DRM. And unless you're an IBM engineer, it's going to be extremely difficult to crack it.

    Not impossible, but definitely impracticable/hard.

    $20 is about 1/3rd of $60. Even better for those 69.99 games.

    Anyway, most people are trying to crack the PS3 for other reasons, as a matter of fact the geohotz isn't even going to touch the DRM, he just wants to start up homebrew I believe.

    XBMC people dont care too much about non x86 systems (Wii, 360, PS3) The PC ports are getting most if not all the attention now. A while back they said they wouldn't bother with a 360 port even if the 360 was cracked (which it is now) because of the different cpu architecture.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they have the update ready to go right now, let the hackers work on the old firmware, when they crack it, funs over. :bowdown:
