I am not quite sure why the blogosphere is exploding with this story but
CellOS, which is the operating system on the Playstation 3 is also
thought to be based on FreeBSD. The PSP and Vita are also rumored to be
running some version of FreeBSD as well.

Also, a patch for avx support on FreeBSD was sent in not to long ago by
someone from Sony

Might be worthwhile to start a page in the FreeBSD wiki on things known
or suspected to be running FreeBSD in one way or the other. I think some
Samsung SmartTV also runs FreeBSD under the hood.
