I've been wondering if it is possible to convert a PC games to PS3? It seems impossible or just extremely difficult as you would probably have to rebuild it from the ground up in terms of programming. But I don't know much about the subject so I was wondering if anyone else does?

Well you can install Linux on the PS3 (if you haven't got the slim) then possible to run PC games through Wine. I have a PS3 but haven't had the urge to put linux on it.

I just wanted to know because I was curious whether realMyst could be ported to playstation. Unlike any other Myst game, it doesn't rly have an interface and the movement is similar to Half life 2 except u can't jump. I just thought it would be nice to play it on a console and see how it goes. I think it would be much more sucessful port than Riven, Myst 3 and Myst 4.

Like D'ean said, you can put Linux on it, though if you have a Slim it's now impossible.

But on the technical side, I imagine from a code perspective all you'd need is a compiler, which you'd get from a Software Development Kit for the PS3. Not sure where'd you'd get one of those though haha. I also imagine it's a lot less simple than that, because of hardware optimization.
