PS3 supports homebrew; did you get one?

The PLAYSTATION 3 has just launched in America, and thousands of Sony fanboys have walked home happy. People have been camping out for days, waiting in the cold, and the rain, trying to get Sony's next-gen powerhouse in their homes. PSP fanboys will certainly want to get access to one of the systems, considering its similar XMB capabilities. The PS3 can play music, videos, show photos, and access the internet, just like our beloved handheld.

One of the things that the PS3 will have that the PSP won't is official homebrew support. Wha? The PS3 will allow you to install other operating systems, and in a recent interview with GI.biz, Phil Harrison revealed his excitement over user-created content and games: "I'm most excited about at the moment is empowering user-created content. Embedding the user creation tools into the game application and opening it up to a cloud of users." Sounds a lot like Microsoft's XNA, doesn't it?

It's strange to see Sony embrace user-developed content for the PS3. Hopefully, that attitude will expand to the PSP one these days. Now, which of you have a PS3 in your house?
