Okay, so for those of you who don't know, the Pandora open-source gaming console uses a similar chipset, the OMAP 3530. The OMAP3530 uses a different 3D chip, and I believe a different DSP (I'm not looking at the specs right this second), but both the 3530, and the 3430 of the Palm Pre use the Cortex A8 ARM CPU.
So, here's a video of the newest dev version of the Pandora console. As there aren't any 3D drivers yet for the Pandora, this is all running on the CPU, so its really a great demonstration of how powerful this processor really is.
Edit: Here's a second (also earlier revision hardware) video of all arcade games, which isn't as impressive as Playstation, but in this video the processor is underclocked from 600mHz to 500mHz. Even the scaling they're doing (the screen here is 800x480) is done in software, and they get 100-150fps.
