Sony to Officially Open PS3 and PSP to Third-Party Applications?

650°
244w ago - Last week's Media/Investor Conference indicated that starting in 2010 Sony may officially open its PS3 and PSP platforms to third-party applications.

Sony also recently launched a Digital Comics Reader application for the PSP and PSPgo consoles.

Today Gamerzines.com (linked above) expands on that notion as follows, to quote:

"Sony has always had an unusual relationship with third party software (we're not talking games). The PS2 explicitly allowed the running of Linux on it.

The PS3 came with Linux support, which ended up with some institutions buying PS3s in bulk in order to run them in parallel as a cheap sort of super-computer (there's no cheaper way to get the Cell chip, apparently). Then Sony removed the Linux option from the PS3 Slim.

Sony has constantly battled with homebrew on the PSP. It has always been in the name of piracy, but the end result has been that it has been impossible to run third-party applications on the PSP, and the ability to do so on the PS3 has effectively been removed.

It was therefore a little surprising...
