There's a bunch of threads about this already.
Short version, PS3 hasn't opened up it's video api, so no OpenGL2, therefore no xbmc.
There's rumors about a group porting OpenGL2 to it, but I haven't heard much on that front.

are you sure a mac mini runs videos at 1080p?
It got only got 1,8 Ghz Intel C2D but with the lowest possible cache and an integrated graphics chip Intel GMA 950 which even uses the system memory.
I find that hard to belive. And it doesn't even has HDMI output ! Only DVI so you will have no sound at your TV...
XBMC for Linux on PS3? - brendanger - 2008-09-18 22:42
I've just been playing around with XBMC for Mac and I was bowled over by it. Top work.
Anyway, it seems a perfect match for the PS3, but before I download anything, will it work on the PS3 hardware? From my (limited!) understanding, its different architecture raises problems when trying to install various Linux flavours and applications.
Will XBMC for Linux work on the Cell chip, and is there enough RAM in there for it to run smoothly? If yes, am I better off downloading XBMC Live, or installing it on top of Ubuntu?

Using XBMC, my stock 2.0Ghz Mac Mini plays 1080p without dropping frames even when the bit rate spikes are exceeding 30Mb/s!
As for HDMI; I use a DVI->HDMI cable for the video and run optical audio to my receiver for DD 5.1.
Frankly I understand your skepticism, but the XBMC team has done an incredible job in optimizing the app for modest hardware (keep in mind the original xbox version runs with a 700mhz celeron and 64mb of ram).

No, XBMC will not run on the PS3.
Can we get this added to a sticky?

for the OP:
xbmc is developed for the x86 cpu architecture. the ps3 is has a PPC architecture based Cell cpu.
