Curious where you get that information from.  Their website listing
PS3 for sale says 256MB (192MB available to user):


I suppose it is possible to add more RAM if you really want to, but I
have a feeling it would probably void the official warranty from Sony

Anyways, I think as a first step, you should get a copy of the Cell
SDK and see if your code re-compiles without a hitch.
