It's probably a multicore PowerPC-based processor.

Faster, better, smaller... thats always what the next chip is...

Well Nintendo's hiding all of it's revolution details till E3, and they're not going to care about states of any of the things because figure that Sony throw around mean nothing to the actuale quality of the games. At this point a few more polys aren't going to make any differance, making games look better than Resident Evil 4 isn't really possable, read you wouldn't even be able to tell. Companies like Sony are obsecesed with stats of there system, but we all know there is a point where the graphic can't get any better and the quailty of system falls back to the game designers.

Not the least bit impressed there It's nothing that hasn't been done before and that is a stop picture used for promatianal propaganda. So the average person could care less if it looks two shades shinier. This is what mean obviously your a techno-file consernded with making details that'll get lost on the tv and can't thesably be seen while playing(or that's what your getting at, besides RE4 used film grain effect so compairing clean style of X-Box promo-art isn't usefull compairison).
Further more X-Box "top" art always looks cold and steral I never could see what people see in Halo 2's graphics.

The point was there is a point where it just doesn't matter anymore, In fact I don't see much of a point in a new system right now.

That's true. This is all hype. Remember how great the PS2's emotion engine was gonna be? Remember how the N64 was going to produce graphics on par with "Toy Story"?

We'll see what happens, one of the three systems will miserably fail is my prediction....

I don't think so.... That'd mean both Sony and Microsoft will be using PowerPC based chips. Doesn't sound plausible to me.

Sony...stop being so arrogant! >_< I'm tired of Sony being arrogant. And no, I don't hate Sony..I do happen to own many PS games. They just seem to have a habit of saying arrogant stuff.

But seriously, this thing does look good. And fast.

Does anyone know if the PS3 will be backward compatible?
