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)."

This is a 3rd party British gamer magazine, the sort that love to spread rumors of the latest triple-breasted-ninjas-playing-tiddlywinks Japanese games. Its most likely a simple case of the article author not being very technically competent thus thinking "PowerPC CPU == Mac".

That's my line and I'm sticking to it.

Yup, looks like they cite an official Sony site! Could be test ballon from Sony, to figure out wheither they should accept this deal?

Well Sony, if you read this: I don't know if I'd buy a barebone PS3, but a PS3 running MacOS X! Wow, guess I would have to buy this machine!
