Question about Playstations and viruses

  Totally-braindead 13:08 09 Feb 2008

A friend has linked up his sons Playstation 3 to the internet and asked me if it could get infected with a virus.
I must admit the thought never occurred to me but I thought I would ask here as someone was bound to know. Personally I thought the answer would be no as theres no operating system to affect but can someone give info on this and if it can happen what if anything can you do to prevent it.
