My suspicion about why heavy Java-oriented titles like POTC are problematic is that standalone players simply do not have the horsepower to process the Java code. Java can really bog down a non-optimized platform, and my bet is that the PS3 is optimized for it (perhaps due to the gaming architecture) but the other players are just overwhelmed by the not-quite streamlined Java code.
This is strongly IMHO, in fact it is highly speculative, since I have no inside info on what is really happening inside the units, so YMMV,
My opinions are my own, and do not necessarily reflect those of my captors.
