I think ps1ight or whatever it's called should be more prone to being talked about (where's the news on new builds?) instead of glorifying a stolen SDK. Make your own apps using an open source SDK and you can setup a site, maybe a forum and offer downloads (or if you're lazy use GoogleCode).
Big difference between de xbox360 and the PS3 is, that microsoft's SDK is the XNA-studio which is freely available (but if you want to publish, you'll need a xboxlive developer license which costs at least $99 a year).. If only Sony had something like that, there would be a lot more 'homebrew'..
