Yes, the multi-core nature is an issue, but not a huge one. Not these days. At the very worst, they could simply not use the extra cores (or the hyper thread in the case of the PS3). Both the PS3 and XBox 360 have exploits for running homebrew, but MorphOS should have the creds to actually be a licensed producer for either or both platforms.

You're also right about the need to work on something that is still going to be manufactured in the future, which basically means AMD64 or ARM platform devices. But in the meantime, since they like targeting PPC platforms, the PS3 and XB360 gives them tens of millions more to target. Just like I'd buy iMac G3 MorphOS, I'd buy PS3 MorphOS in an instant.
