I know this isn't a PC gaming question, but is there a need for anti-virus for the PS3?

I saw an ad from TrendMicro about protection for the PS3. Part of me says no since the PS3 is a proprietary OS, but the other part of me says yes since the days of the PSN hacking and all the hackers that are out there cheating, etc, in online games, etc.

Just because the OS is proprietary doesn't mean it's immune. If you look at the about, there's hints of Sony using FreeBSD as part of the PS3's OS.

However, should you even care about it? No. This is just a sad marketing move on TrendMicro's part to take advantage of people.
