I've been talking to them a little bit about this. And... Regardless of
what they do, they have a deal with Sony. Their mods are "approved" and
don't void the warranty. It's even possible to boot back into game mode.
Hmmm. <evil grin> Imagine 64 nodes of Guitar Hero... </grin>
I'll keep looking. I'll likely get the SDK. I know Some folks at NCAR
who have been looking at this, and based on the customer list at
TeraSoft, I suspect there's been some work, but that no one is talking
about the results (yet). I may hear something at the WRF users Meeting
