I would say yes. Very easy if you are creative. I would say some bondo or plaster is gonna be needed. Stand off screws or long bolts for the PS3 motherboard Re-wire a few things such as the dvd drive. Either add push buttons for the reset and eject or mod the touch sensitive buttons into the face of the new PC. Rewire the USB ports and it will be done.
I was thinking of putting a ps3, xbox 360, wii, and a mini-itx computer into one tower case.. the xbox 360 and wii i don't care too much about break since they are relatively cheap to replace.. however, my ps3 is still in warranty so i don't want to mess with it yet :\\
BUT! the second that warranty goes out, i'll be stripping them all apart. muhahha
i would deem it pretty much impossible. I have broken down various hardware revisions of the ps3 and they all have the same internal structure. The way the mother board is set up, if you were to try to sit the motherboard on standoffs in the standard fashion, the connection to the psu, the connections for the blue ray drive, and the wifi connection port and the â€œpower onâ€ button all would be "behind" the motherboard facing the motherboard tray. Then on top of that, both the CPU and the GPU only have two mounting holes for a â€œheat sinkâ€ so creating a custom cooling solution would take some pretty impressive tooling and manufacturing. While I admit putting the ps3 inside a case similar to this -PC-XBO1- for the 360 would be awesome, I really think the cost and effort would outweigh the benefits.
