PS3 To Support MAC OS X Tiger


A recent posting on the official UK Sony website has a lot of fans of console gaming drooling at the prospect of running MAC OS X Tiger on their PS3.

Sony's next-generation console, expected to launch in the spring of 2006, will feature the Cell processor, co-developed by Sony, Toshiba and IBM. The company has already claimed that the Cell will be able to support multiple operating systems although it was never made clear how such support may be implemented through the Playstation 3 console.

The account on the UK Sony website, claims: Sony is expected to offer optional hard drives for the PS3 with potential memory capacity of 80 or 120 GB. It remains to be decided whether the standard version of the PS3 will come complete with a hard drive. The operating system has also yet to be clarified. The integrated Cell processor will be able to support a variety of operating systems (such as Linux or Apple's Tiger). That final, inconspicuous looking, statement is what has caused all the excitement. The fact that IBM has been involved in Apple systems for a few years now also lends support to the arguments for OS X Tiger on PS3 as well as Apple's desire to get some form of foothold on the gaming market.

The fact however, that Intel is now taking over from IBM as processor supplier for the company's personal computers may strain any possible partnership although Sony may be willing to work on this partnership as it may help the Japanese giant hit Microsoft where it hurts; on its plans of world domination.
