What OS does the PS3 use?

44 replies 19879 views Edited Aug 15, 2009
Pretty simple. I want to install my slingbox software to my PS3 and I have to choose between  MAC or Windows. Any advice will help, if this is even possible.
PS360 owner!
So I can bash either system if I choose to.

I don't think it's a good idea to install any OS to PS3 except Linux.

I'm not installing an OS. I was wondering what the PS3 uses to access the web. Simply put, does the PS3 have an OS installed and if so what is it?

Your question makes no sense.

Jeez! I thought these forums were smart. When browsing the internet, what OS is the PS3 using? Or does it even have an OS (operating system) such as Windows OS. I can't really make my question much more simple than that. Does the PS3 use an Operating System? Yes or no will suffice. If it does, what is it?

Still makes no sense. What does the PS3 OS have to do with browsing the internet? Or are you asking what kind of internet browser the PS3 uses?

the ps3 uses a proprietary os made just for the ps3.  it is not windows or mac compatible.  you may try installing linux on the ps3 and then installing your slingbox software.  or you could just go the sony route here.
