Im not a smart guy when it comes to tech...so...its a better tool to develop games?

I think its an engine which can be licensed. I dunno if you realised, but a few games for PS3 (but not just PS3, mind) say "Havoc" when they start up. Thats the Havoc engine, which is a physics engine. I think this is the same kind of thing but for character animation.

If this tools, is gona give more help to developers to tap in to the PS3 power, that can't be a bad think. If its gona help make characters more Natural hey by all mean thats a good thing. Well lets see what this tool will end up making in the future.

is this giving more advantage to the ps3 or just another tool?

middleware is always good, licensing costs money, but is saving some time to the developers that can be used for other important things.

But hopefully this actually is intuitive and doesn't require extensive learning, like current middleware for the delay-station. If it makes characters look better at all would be a good thing, and anything that makes programming that beast easier is a godsend.
