why is this on PS3News? Did i miss something that said it can run on PS3?

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.

The site still has a console area here: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/console-news/
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.

By the what seems, it serves until to who lost for key of the drive, very same good... I sold my very cheap device for that problem.. But now all right .. ja bought the ps3...

Well said DaedalusMinion and saviour07 and +Rep, and yep this is posted in our Console News section versus the PS3 News one.
We also posted on it is because with PSN down so has Sony's US and EU blog news updates... it's been a slow few days, so things like this for XBox 360 and the Wii next-gen news fill in the gaps nicely until Sony gets back in gear.

This site shows MORE than just PS3news... its primary focus is on PS3 (and PSP)... i remember when this used to be PS2ownz.com or something like that and it was PS2 stuff... now it's PS3news.com, i've seen a number of Xbox and Nintendo and even iPhone news on here...

lol it feels like the only reason its here is cuz 360 usb backup manager finally made it to 360 like ps3, but in relation it that we are at 3.60 and 360 is finally catching up with editing firmware with backup manager, now its a race it seems like to see which one becomes fully hacked with out soldering <ps3 3.60> V.S. <xbox 360>
and plz just find this entertaining..
