I could be mistaken, but I don't think PS3 supports OGL calls? PS3 does support OpenGL ES, evidently. PS3's hardware is a pretty far removed from x86 PCs though. Some of the programming is bare to metal to eek out all the performance possible.
On the CPU side, the GPU is an Nvidia 7800 (I think, I might have the wrong model number).
Most games these days are Unreal 3 engine anyways. So if Epic ports their engine to Linux, then it should be trivial to get the games to work on it.
