"Canonical, through Colin Watson, announced a few minutes ago that starting with today, December 14th, they will no longer build ISO images for the PlayStation 3 gaming console.

"On April 1st 2010, Sony dropped the support for Linux-based operating systems on their PlayStation 3 gaming console, by removing the "Other OS" option from XMB (XrossMediaBar). This happened with the firmware version 3.21, released on that day.

"Apparently, the Ubuntu developers were still cooking daily builds of the Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) port for PS3. But with today's announcement, PlayStation 3 owners who love Linux, especially the Ubuntu flavor, will have to look for another operating system designed for the PowerPC architecture."
