    Nope. It doesn't. Sony is forcing legal DVDs and Blu-Ray, and "avi" is too linked with piracy (in their opinion).

    I think you can play mp4 like the PSP. You need a converter to convert the avis though.

    Well I don't have a PS3 myself but I'm pretty certain you could install Linux on the PS3 and then use a media player like Mplayer.

    Also it was recently announced that the XBMC team are recruiting people to help port XBMC to Linux so we could see XBMC on the PS3 soon!
