CPU unclearly labelled
While its labelled in Sony/ IBM's labels, its very unclear to anyone what it means . Isn't the clearer way to say it is
- IBM PowerPC* combined with 3 high MFLOPS coprocessors.
(this means that for a single job, the MFLOPS could be 1/3rd max. But generally requirement for huge MFLOPS will be abl to be load balanced across 3 cores.) - — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs) 01:51, 23 December 2012
The coprocessors must have an instruction set -what is that ?
PS3 suffers from lack of future proof
This is now evident as - PS4 will move to the ubiquitous 80x86 CPU family..
- Why 80x86 ? future proof. Able to leverage the cpu to gpu interfaces and the gpu's already being developed for 80x86, which will be a long lasting produt... they may make CPU and GPU upgrades a possibility... why doesnt the PS have a bus for plugging in modules , like a GPU card..
They are kicking themselves that they didnt make the PS family more like a PC in a console... Windows 8 for PS4 or PS5.. why not hey ? Microsoft cannot stop them . If they run 80x86 cpu, Jailbreakers WILL run Virtualisation .. (VmWare style layers..) and run Windows... - — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs) 01:51, 23 December 2012

For the picture of the Ps3 it should show Ps3 Fat, Ps3 Slim, Ps3 Super Slim, also how the ps3 slim was discontinued - — Preceding unsigned comment added by ZackCannata (talk • contribs) 21:41, 30 December 2012
As for Linux Support, I believe even the newer Slim versions *do* support Linux by either Jailbreak or other means. Every single PS3 console does support Linux as long as you take the right software steps, as can be heard from PSGroove's 3-part video conference which is covered over 3 episodes on YouTube. Here's the first part where they claim this (Note, please do playback from 3:02): "PSGroove 2010 Console Hacking (Part 1)" on YouTube.
At 3:25, he points out the Linux support being possible on Slim. Please see the video's description for the other 2 parts if you are interested in more details. I hope this is relevant to the article :)
Modding / Jailbreaking
I'm wondering what modding articles are related to the PS3. The article PlayStation Jailbreak is pretty bad and I'd like to merge it into a broader category. iOS Jailbreaking exists but I don't see anything on PS3 yet and I'm unaware of the PSP Modding articles, which was pretty big back in the day. Let me know if anyone has opinions. WhereAmI (talk) 18:05, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Shouldn't the article be updated to reflect that the PlayStation 3's system software has been updated to version 4.65 (Source: http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/support/system-software/detail/item679451/Update-features-%28ver-4-65%29/)? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:08, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
