Third-party PS3 SDK

A company called Mercury Computer Systems has released the MultiCore Plus SDK for PS3, remarkable for being one of the few third-party development kits available for game consoles. Mercury is not interested in games though, but rather commercial and military interests, since the PlayStation's Cell processor is extremely powerful while remaining a relatively cheap and open platform. It can for instance load Linux, which Mercury is pairing with its SDK to allow tasks such as running a node in a computing cluster. The SDK is not being priced for amateurs: a single-seat license is now available for $399.
