    Do the other consoles (PS3 and 360) have the same kind of homebrew scene that the Wii has?
    I did a little googling, but couldn't find much

    well PS3 runs a other OS natively, you can install linux or XP even onto it if you wish which is really cool..

    the 360 not so much yet dude, theres still a scene but not the extent of the Wii when it comes to pure homebrew apps.

    check out maxconsole and tehskeen, they have sections on most consoles so you can have a read.

    Thanks for the info.

    Yeah I know the PS3 can run Linux, but the no 3d acceleration thing kinda sucks.
    It can't run XP, though, since it's powerpc. (Not without an x86 emulator anyway)
