"Cell, a radical new processor designed by IBM, Sony and Toshiba and dubbed a 'supercomputer on a chip', could enter production in 2004"

Yeah, two years, if then, & way before then we should probably have a PC chip that can do that.

Default A little help

First to boss1986 Microsoft does not make chips, they could not make a better one, and this is a new technology, this will be the new chip never heard of before about the size of a dime, but hundreds of times better then any pc out today. Its so unthough of that 3 rival companies came together to make it, and agreed the first system or pc to have this chip would be the ps3. Microsoft could later buy the chip technology from sony, IBM and toshbia, but i doubt Sony will let them. Mircosoft would then have to wait for the copyright to go up. Also boss1986 gc is alot better then psx, it's just as good as all the other new gen systems for different reasons.(I personally have no favorite Ilike them all for different reasons) And how about Metroid Prime, Resident Evil (capcom sold out to them), and Mario is the greast series ever (or at least one of them).

Next, Superpnoy your statement that "I think PS3 is gonna be better cause they mostly have American stuff workin on xboxs and they got the Japanese technology which is more advance than U.S. technology" Since american and Jap are teaming up on the makeing of the cell. There is no plan for a xbox 2, you have to remeber they lost big bucks in japan, they spent millons on avertising and xbox just is not selling there, so they have to rethink there in tire stradegy. Also the most advanced console technology is located in South Korea. They say they will serpass the chip technology in 4 years. US and jap technology is the same (give or take alittle.
kornunknown in 2 years there will probably be 5ghz comps. The problem with any higher is the chips used now are not able to handle higher.
Also the ps3 will have hundreds of those chips, meaning 1 chip could control each character or one item ectra meaning no load times, no skipping, or problems. Hundreds of smart character be operated at once each with there own brain. instead of a team in Madded thinking together each would have its own ideas, stadegy's, ect. The only problem with this is no dvd could handle this. so they are experimenting with super severs, brandband and much more to fingure out a way to make games powerful enough to really test the cells campabilities. Things are getting interesting, and sony is running on full speed, winning the console wars, (sold so many systems before xbox and gc came out and the price droped there is no way for ethier gc or xbox to catch them) at the head of the chip sector, and on the next generation systems.

To find out more about the CELL:
The new gamepro has a big senction on the new chip
IBM's and sony's websites have made annoucements and posted stuff on ther pages, and lots of korean sites have a lot of info on the possibilities and plans for the chip and the most detailed specs(if you have a translator on your pc or can speak it)

sorry for the typos got to go

the key phrase you said in that sentence is "the chips used *now*"
