    There is simply no Linux for XBOX360 available, except from some hack attempts.

    What i’d really like to know is what happened to Saddam Hussein’s 4000 PS2 consoles and what he did with them in first place?

    Fantastic, we need something like this to test our newest next-gen game title on!!!
    It makes me wonder if they can still put a game into one of the PS3s and play?
