Because before the PS3 was hacked PS3 News would also report on other Console news - so information like this used to be common but has since dwindled.

The site still has a console area here:

So whether it can run on PS3 or not is irrelevant as it is console hacking news and is still worthy of being published on PS3 News.

Occasionally PS3News features news that are headline worthy for systems other than PS3 on the main page.

It's a cool way of staying updated.
