In spite of being anti console, and in spite of all my friends hating the ps3, and loving the xbox. Which is a nice box and all, and I've played a lot on both the xboxes and the wii. And I hate proprietary solutions made for hypothetical users that don't exist. And I hate Sony for single- handedly causing the death of Symbian and UIQ when choosing Windows Mobile - which just results in wose phones for everyone. In spite of that, because I could get my hands on a cell- processor for almost nothing, I went out and bought a ps3 anyway. And I have just one thing to say: what the hell is wrong with the 360 people? I know the theory behind the cell, the hypervisor, and so on - but good god. I've just played Lair, and it has more background computations in real time that you get on an xbox in a year. And where is the xbox fog? Nowhere, that's where it is. Up to seven controllers at a time - been trying four with an USB controller pulled in - and no lag. None. Split- screen actually works. Oh, and did I mention the box is completely silent? My WD passport USB disk (just watched a film from it through the game- OS) makes more noise. Compare that to the xbox - riduculous. Parllel computing i coming with a vengeance to the consumer market, and thanks to the xbox fans who hate the ps3, and buy MS junk, I can now buy a cell- rig with all the accessories for almost nothing, far under the production cost. Perfect. Now, I'm off playing "flow" while waiting for Mirror's Edge to come out. And then I'm going to install linux on it. Yeah, did I meantion you can install linux on it? First test- run yesterday went without a hitch. A ray- tracing scene I had laying around took about one percent of the time it took on my 2,4Ghz machine. Thank you and goodbye, x86 and intel.
