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.

So it's going to be in essence a overblown and overpriced BlueRay Player.
No Thanks.


It's going to be a game console. You know, the thing they designed it to be and will sell it as.
