Need AmigaOS on new PlayStation 3
« on: April 09, 2006, 05:40:10 PM »
:idea:

With the new Linux compatible PS3 console about to be released around November, I would like to know if the Amiga OS will be made compatible with this new Open Source platform.

The hardware is more than ideal for just such a release. The cost will be relatively small; the platform itself will be like a replacement of the original Amiga "idea" and capable of anything a "normal" computer can do; it will be spread by the millions around the world; the hardware will be mostly stable for more than a decade (easy to learn to program) - a standard; and so on.

Chances are emulators, programming languages (such as REBoL) and other normal desktop software will be released for this anyway, so why not another great multitasking OS, too?

Cheers,

Donald Dalley

This has been done to death on this forum already. The answer is no.

Ah, I looked for Search above and to the left, but didn't see it on the right. My bad.

Well, after reading one thread, I'm glad to see there is plenty of interest in this idea (and a few vocal deniers).

I just had to try out this new icon for myself. It's quite fun.

I don't think Hyperion has the millions of dollars needed to become a licenced PS3 developer, the development staff / resources to do the port, or a licence to do so.

In the crazy 'Amiga' world they would actually expect Sony to pay them, and then compulsorily bundle OS4 with the console, while adding $100 onto the price.

I don't know whether the traditional sticker is obligatory but if so it may also mean Sony having to place a paper 'Amiga' sticker over the Sony logo on each PS3 sold so that people can pretend there are new Amigas.

The problem lies in the fact that the original Amiga "idea" and Amiga as it stands today are 2 very very different things.

It's quite feasible (a lot less difficult than writing an entire OS).

It'll give them access to a market 1 00 000 times bigger that their existing market.

It gives them access to cheap hardware with levels of computing power which they wont get in any other platform for several years yet.

It might actually make them some money.

The last point is the difficult one as the Amiga partners seem to be allergic to this idea.  The MOS team and AROS folks are just plain uninterested or unaware of just what Cell is or can do - Cell has some major architectural advantages which wont become apparent for a few years yet.


It's debatable of they'd even need a license from Sony as they are actively encouraging bedroom coders on PS3.

If the hardware specs are open enouph then I think a port would make sense, as long as Hyperion doesn't have to pay $$ to devolop it. The sales could pay off.

Anyway :horse:  :-D

 Ok, i have noticed something in here and in another Amiga forum that troubles me. Why all the pointless and semi off topic threads are draws all the posts and attention while posts about a real Amiga problem does not?
 Is this a sign of our times?

Just because the PS3 will have linux does not mean that Sony will open the hardware. Sony has never released open hardware and I dont think they are about to start.
