Tversity works on Wii :p

So....

But this might be a reason to get PS3 - BluRay + good games + media center (i can finally throw out my old original Xbox media center :p)

tbh i think this slim looks bad, furthermore some people seem to think you cannot upgrade the hard drive on the slim, its just in a different location to gen1-3 ps3.
but ill probably buy a slim when i move soon, so i have one at home to come back to.

Its 4th generation ps3.

It has everything that 3rd gen 40,80,160gig.
All of the news articles talked about it losing PS2 playback (which I'm pretty sure it had already lost) and the ability to install Linux (which nobody used anyway). So while it technically lost something, it really didn't lose anything.

Not that it will make me buy one :P

Didn't a number of people on folding/seti @home use PS3 for some work units?

That's built into it. Don't need Linux to run it :)
