Default That's a Lotta PS3's

I'm not into the PS3 scene, but damn. This setup is a bunch of rack mounted PS3's for the game Warhawk. Its sony's actual game server.

wouldn't it be more efficient to have a super computer running several copies of the PS3 os or something?

that makes no sense. the ps3 is not a great computer. its a decent video rendering device but it would have been better to host up game rooms with a blade center running linux.

Probably not, because with this way every unit is serviceable. You make one big super computer, and if the whole thing fries it may be way more expensive to maintain.

The biggest i've seen in person is a rack of 24

It's what Crestron uses for their trade shows to show off blu-ray controls etc

Yes, I can't see why they'd use a bunch of STI cores that can be linked together in a hive type cluster. Considering they haven't even touched the limits of what this chip can do I'd say we can expect some great things from the PS3 in the up coming years.
