Games "It all began when a young man named George Hotz began to work on the PlayStation 3, trying to gain access to the machine in a way that made Sony uncomfortable. In response, Sony removed the OtherOS functionality of the PlayStation 3 in a mandatory update, and the hacking community was not happy with this decision, resulting in a sort of cold war. PS3 hackers have once again gained the upper hand: Linux has been returned to the PlayStation 3."

You show me where I can buy an eight core computer with a bluray player for under $500.

Not to mention an HDMI port, a GPU you can actually play modern games on, and a form factor that fits nicely in an entertainment center.

Note: This is not a rhetorical question. I would love to get a PS3, but I don't want to jump through hoops to fully unlock it. But if I could get a real HTPC with comparable specs for about the same price, I would.
