PS3 programming course @ MIT Answered

MIT has a playstation 3 programming course: Learn and Compete in Programming the PLAYSTATION3 Cell Processor

This course is a brand new IAP 2007 class offering open to all MIT students (undergraduates and graduates). Students will spend several weeks learning about new multicore architectures and parallel programming patterns, and will design and implement projects to run directly on the new PLAYSTATION3 consoles. The course will culminate in an exciting competition at the end of IAP, and prizes will be awarded to the best projects. The course will give students hands on experience in parallel programming in an exciting and relevant context.

All the course materials (lectures etc.) are online. If you were curious about programming the CELL processor, this looks like a great intro...
