Yes, They do. Sweeney said himself at the Sony press Conference that they got the Dev Units 2 months prior to E3 and were able to port the UT2007 demo to it in that short amount of time (its very user friendly according to him, OpenGL based).

To show off the PlayStation 3's graphical brawn, Sony showed several game demos, including an Unreal 3 engine show-off of what appeared to be Unreal Tournament 2007. In what must come as a relief to developers, Epic Games' Tim Sweeney was on hand to vouch for the PS3, saying it was "easy to program for" and that Epic had received its first PS3 hardware two months ago. He proved the tech demo was real-time by showing it again and by manipulating the camera and zooming in.

I assumed that the first batch of PS3 prototype hardware, it great to see Sony way ahead of Microsoft and have plenty time for testing games on the PS3 hardware prototypes. It too bad for Microsoft still yet to receive the first Xbox 360 hardware prototype from the manufactuers, it seem they have problems with R500 chipsets from TSMC, Microsoft look more likely will miss October launch.
