Can you possibly convert or create a linux version?

Not only would it be great for those who run it for their computers' operating system, but the PS3 is going to have pc-like functionalities featuring a new form of the linux os. It would be a cool and easy way for many people to play this on their television if their computer isn't anywhere near it.

Hello,

Humm, I don't know much about this, actually, u just made me know about the PS3 having a Linux OS, but I'm pretty sure that Sony will have strict policy about games allowed to run on it.
At least, the PS3 kit will be for only authorized developer.
I'm looking, from far, about XNA on Xbox 360. If Tennis Elbow goes on consoles, it'll be probably the 1st one, as it'd need not too much work to adapt the render engine from DirectX 8.1 to XNA (which is quite close of DX9.0c).

Just to make it clear, the PS3 will have firmware based on linux, but it will also have a completely separate boot apart from that that is essentially a computer. In short, one of the PS3's boots starts up into a real deal linux pc desktop interface, and not the navigation that you play ps3 games from. So it's not some restricted firmware loosely based on linux, it really is a linux-based pc at that point. I hope you understand that and I'm not sure if it makes a difference.

Hello sphanlon,

I'm quite surprise that Sony would let boot its PS3 in free full Linux mode..!
But I'll keep an eye on that, I guess we'll know more in the incoming months.
Anyway, even if it's possible to run TE2006 on it, it might be not easy to let PS3 users know about the game (ie: I may not get any PS3's sales, and I can't afford to work for free... :? )
