    I read about this yesterday. I suppose this would help Sony with the fact that it will cost a little less to make each system.

    Doesn't prove anything.
    At the end of reading it we still wait.

    Something better then a XMB would be nice.
    If they use it again, to me it would just be a PS3.

    Well maybe that's because it's not supposed to be proved, it is a rumor after all.

    Rumour or not, it was obvious to me before the ps3 came out... that they'd have multi-core processing... and that handhelds in the future would be just as good as my ps2.
    As soon as my dad started talking about multi-core processing down at work I believed the consoles would get it, since dad said it was cheaper, to run two 2ghz processors instead of one 4ghz, and that two are less likely to get as warm as one processor.

    So in the end, this news isn't surprising, in fact, we all had a niggling little feeling that it'd happen eventually.

    What surprised me for certain was the DS, its microphone and touch screen... I knew the tech existed but I thought we wouldn't see any implementation for a whiles, so the DS stood as a surprise, this news isn't surprising, in fact it was more surprising that the ps3 had the one processor, instead of a multi-core.

    I may go with the PS4 by the time the next consoles come out. Nintendo is getting somewhat bland, imo.

    Ya, I know I shouldn't form opinions on products that aren't even out but it seems like the next Nintendo console will be more equivalent to a 360 instead of going above and beyond.

    Meh, I'll wait and see.

    even if it came out in 2013, it would take like 2 years for it to finalize ie. reduce price,revisions - slim, and so forth
    its interesting still tht they want to make it multi core bcz if u ask me, i think ps3 is still not THAT powerful since FF13 even though its great, its not fit for the ps3 bcz there are still some bkgs and models tht could be expanded more on a better console (it looks too colorful since the detail could not be expanded)
