www.theinquirer.net...




SOURCES SAID that the architecture of the Sony Playstation3 is patently clear when you've found the US patent that it filed September 26th last year.
A reliable source close to Sony's plans explained the way the Playstation3 works to the INQUIRER.

He said that the computers are made of cells, each one containing a CPU, which will probably be a PowerPC, and eight APUs (vectorial processors) each with 128K of memory.

It will run at 4GHz, producing a not inconsiderable 256Gflops, with the cells connected to the central 64MB memory through a switched 1024 bit bus.


OK... who's saving up for this one folks


I'm guessing this will cost around $400 when it first comes out... and once again... the people of Japan will most likely get it first, and get special versions of them. It's at this time I wish I lived there

I say hang on your xbox and get a mod chip. When the prices go down, buy a PS3.

To be honest... I could care less about XBox anymore... all of my favorite games are on the PS2/1.

My idea worked. I waited for the X-box's price to lower, then buy it. Its 149 now, alot less compared to $ 299.

I'm only getting an X-box for Knights of the Old Republic, cheaper than buying a new comp to play it on.

I had only gotten mine for Halo and Halo 2 (when it comes out) I bought mine for $149... but after warranty, the game, yada yada yada... it was around $189.
