Thread: PS3 Home and Linux

  1. PS3 Home and Linux


    One of the major trends happening in the world today is the ability
    for products that impact as many
    people as possible in a positive manner. One of these products is the
    games that perks the interest of, and
    exercises the mind. There are of course many different ways that good
    can come from products. Besides
    the above, some companies like google, ebay, etc, create products that
    allow the consumers a cut into
    making a living. In these two examples, the ability to offer
    advertisement on webpages, and selling stuff on
    the internet. Because the human population is growing at an
    exponential rate, there will probably come a
    time when the amount of companies that exists to provide products to
    people and hire people (to give them
    an income) will reach a period of static growth and even decline in
    growth because there are only so
    many companies that can compete making the same widgets. So as more
    and more things get automated,
    it is inevitable that there will be more and more people and less and
    less companies. This will lead to
    major changes that needs to implemented to keep many people around the
    world sustainable (living).
    So it is with this trend of google and ebay that game platforms need
    to be opened up to allow programmers and
    people who want to sell stuff to be able to do so on these platforms.
    Unfortunately ebay is not totally free to use. If Sony were to allow
    Home an easy
    way for people to offer products to sell (and maybe use paypal or
    similar ways to make a profit), and
    if the PS3 were opened up to allow people to create games (like how
    the PC allowed programmers and
    in the end game companies to form), then it would offer something more
    of a value then just a game console.

    Since the recent trend for people to purchase stuff off of the console
    network, it would be inevitable that the best would be for people to
    offer their software (homebrew, games, apps, whatever even other
    things) off of PS3 Home. But because the console network is currently
    proprietary and not free, it has to be opened up, if not in Home,
    in the Linux area of the PS3 (swapped out for a better 3D OS) This
    is, of course, the best feasible way in the
    case that people are not smart enough to use the linux partition to
    create another market place (given that the 3d rsx is a roadblock)

    1. The Sony Playstation is a failure as a game machine.
    2. Virtually nobody but a true geek is using one to run Linux other than as
    a concept, IOW, look what I can do.
    3. Who cares?
