No I believe like the PS2 sony will offer a linux release for the PS3
when it has the HD add on installed.  The games themselves are pretty
unlikely to bother with any OS unless there is some game oriented OS
they use on the game console.  Then again. I could be wrong and perhaps
the complexity and performance have gotten so high that it makes sense
to actually put a real OS on the system to make writing the game easier
(managing memory and such can be a real pain after all).
