Maya v8.5 does not run on a PS3 with Fedora 6. It does install from the rpm, but it will not run. I have been unable to verify any other OS at this time, but it is highly unlikely that it will run on any nix distribution for the ps3.
I have determined this by trying to start it from a shell.
Maya returns the error. "'Wrong Architecture"
Even if it were possible to install OSX on the PS3, due to the fact that the PS3 is using a cell processor, I predict that it will return the same error.
