I would assume so.  Doesn't the GPL say that Sony has to release the
distibution?  A lot of what you are paying for in the $200 is hardware,
NIC, Hard drive, keyboard, mouse.  So the only thing that Xbox doesn't
need is a NIC.  But a PS does have Firewire which offers a lot more
options than no PCI and 1 hard drive bay.  Plus, the added cost of a mod
chip. Either way, Sony acknowlegdes Linux and is friendly to it. 
Microsoft, not so much.
