Holy Cow, Dig What's in Store for Playstation 3!

     The next incarnation of the popular gaming console, slated for 2005, will supposedly incorporate new chip technology nicknamed "The Cell", a supercomputer-on-a-chip that IBM and other companies shelling out 400 million dollar's worth of money to the project predict will be able to perform a whopping one trillion+ calculations in a second, making it roughly 100 times as powerful as a 2.5 Ghz Pentium 4 CPU.
     Kind of makes you wonder what Tekken 5 or 6 or whatever will be like, huh? Actually, if the thing's going to be that powerful, maybe they should roll out a few games with a different slant: Cure Cancer Extreme 2005, EA DNA Splicer, Quantum Mechanics Man, etc. Just so long as you can play Pac-man on it, though, I'll be happy.
