Not tried it but there's no direct control over anything like the joypads, the drive, the media bays etc.

You can plug in a USB mouse though. Wooh.

I would if I had a PS3.

Pity the performance you get (according to a few programmers comments) is similar to a 1.8GHz PowerPC with no 3D acceleration.
