Sony's Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Phil Harrison said in an interview that the PlayStation 3 is good enough to make it a suitable replacement for a desktop computer:
In particular, he said the Linux-based operating system on the console's hard drive will have enough processing power and nongaming functionalities to render traditional PCs--most of which use a form of Microsoft's Windows OS--moot in the home. "We believe that the PS3 will be the place where our users play games, watch films, browse the Web, and use other [home] computer functions," said Harrison. "The PlayStation 3 is a computer. We do not need the PC."
