    Playstation 2 Linux Kit ships to US


    The fact that its coming to the US is official, but rumor has it that it will be here Jan 2002, during the time they release Grand Turismo Concept (which is like GT4).

    It could be at a demo stall and some luser is trying it out by going to the only site they know...


    I hope the PAL version won't be too long after the american release. *crosses fingers*

    I can't see why not, I don't think SEGA had anything to do with DC-Linux, and the X-Box is based on known hardware. Add to that the "an M$ console running Linux would be funny"-factor. Give it a few weeks and we'll start to hear roumors of X-linux, well IMHO anyway.

    HA-HA first X-box linux article I've seen:
    http://gamespot.com/gamespot/stories...827212,00.html

    It's not linux for x-box, but how someone has created a virtual link cable over internet.

    Yes they do, the chip is soldered to the board though... I am also pretty sure you can't swap the hard drive out for a larger one. *

    well have to wait until someone rips it apart to see. I doubt the cpu/ram is upgradable, but the HD should be.
