Games Pretty cool stuff: the PlayStation 4 apparently runs on a version of FreeBSD 9.0 modified by Sony and renamed to 'Orbis OS'. Second generation developer kits use GNU GRUB to boot, and allow you to boot into a graphical or a console mode. Not much else is known at this point, but it's a fun bit of information, and perhaps a boon to homebrew developer and hackers.

Remember the PS3 ...

We all remember the PS3, right? How Sony sold it as a "computer", then crippled the feature with an update? Will anyone be foolish enough to trust Sony on this again?
