Games AppleInsider is reporting that Sony's PlayStation 3 gaming console will support Apple's Mac OS X Tiger operating system. "Sony is expected to offer optional hard drives for the PlayStation 3 with potential memory capacity of 80 or 120 GB. It remains to be decided whether the standard version of the PS3 will come complete with a hard drive. The operating system has also yet to be clarified. The integrated Cell processor will be able to support a variety of operating systems (such as Linux or Apple's Tiger)."

I thought that Cell wasn't binary-compatible with stock PPC970s? And if so, how will this work? Apple's been pretty adamant that they won't be using video game processors in Macs, and I find it unlikely that there's a hidden binary for Cell on current discs. Which would necessitate a whole new disc for PS3s... It just doesn't seem like the kind of thing that's likely, and more like the kind of thing that is a pipe dream of a reporter somewhere. The linux part I believe, though. ;)
