Some information here, http://www.scedev.net/2bldev/.

 

 It's a complicated process, Sometimes they will give you a dev kit, sometimes you'll have to pay for it. I think it's like $7000

You can't. You must be licenced by Sony in order to do so. Last I heard the licencing fee's were in the 100's of thousands. (10 grand)

 

here found some more info on this.

They have a much easier system to program on, not to mention the Windows OS and framework libraries on their side. But yea, XNA is definitely an amazing thing that will show its true power in the future.

 

I guess if I wanted to give a smart remark, I would say create a game in Flash and play it in the PS3's browser. Smiley Happy
