    Sony's PS3 uses a Powerpc based processor and can run another OS such as Linux. So would it be far fetched to try to run Mac Os X? Technically all you need to do is make a custom boot loader for the PS3, right?

    That would be sweet. I think that the problem that people are having now is a boot loader for osx. Also we still have the hypervisor stopping us from doing anything to great with it.

    If we could pull some resources from osx86 developers I'm sure they could make a ps3 bootloader.
