220w ago - Today madshaun1984 shared a video of the XBMC Media Center running on Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system via PS3 Linux.

For those unaware, [Register or Login to view links] is a free and open source cross-platform media player and home entertainment system software with a 10-foot user interface designed for the living-room TV.

Its graphical user interface allows the user to easily manage video, photos, podcasts, and music from a computer, optical disk, local network, and the Internet using a remote control.

To quote: "I managed to compile and get running XBMC on my PS3 via OtherOS and Ubuntu10.04.

Proof enough I think that the PS3 is more than capable to run it (although its extremely slow at the moment, it can be improved upon )"

Check out the video below!





Tutorial - Install Ubuntu/CellSDK/XBMC on the PS3:

You will need a usb keyboard and mouse for this install.

First off decide whether you want to install on a usb hdd or the PS3's internal hdd (internal hdd will need to be formatted and a partition assigned to OtherOS).

Then get a copy of the OtherOS.bld for petitboot and put it on a usb stick at /PS3/OTHEROS/otheros.bld

To quote: "I'm running xbox media centre on my xbox360 by booting a copy of avalaunch modified with a halo title id to get it running then I boot xbmc from the avalaunch file manager.

xbmc on the xbox360 currently has minimal features working but with a bit of tweaking by someone a bit smarter than me we should have a fully functional xbmc.

hope this helps!"
