Yep, the PS3 is a pretty versatile beast and always worth considering. You are right, they are fairly big and can run hot and loud, but I think that problem was mostly fixed in the later versions, and completely in the new slimline version. The downside of the slim one though is apparently you now can't do the linux install on it anymore, whether that will inspire people to actually get proper graphic support on the older ones now remains to be seen or indeed if someone ends up getting linux on a slimline. I think the mouse/kb with a PS3 goes quite a way to challenging the PC in the FPS genre too, agreed it's nowhere near them when using a standard gaming controller though.
