PS3 + YDL= Mega Media Machine

In conjunction with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance), Access Co., Ltd. demonstrated its "NetFront Living Connect" middleware application on the PS3.

Loaded with YDL 5.0, Access and its wholly-owned subsidiary IP Fusion, showcased the PS3 in operation as a DMS (Digital Media Server). Due to the computational power of the Cell Processor the showcased PS3 is able to transmit content to other machines on the network with ease, though the limited space on the hard drive would require an upgrade.

They made it sound like this thing is only possible with the Cell processor.
