PS3 Chip

"PS3, expected by the end of 2005, is run by a supercomputer on a chip that is 100 times faster than a Pentium 4. Likely to have a motion sensor and camera so that it can recognize and respond to gestures made by players."

That was among FastCompany's predictions for the year 2005.

The chip, which simply assumes the development-title "Cell", is being jointly developed by Sony, IBM and Toshiba.

What is beyond PS3?
"Forget mashing the "X" button; future games will use cameras to read your body movements and facial expressions, plus microphones backed by advance speech recognition technology to recognize vocal commands. And perhaps they'll all be crammed into your personal entertainment robot, so the game sensors follow you wherever you go." >>

If that's not enough, " the time the PlayStation 9 rolls around, technology will allow a direct connection between the game console and the player's brain."


Some look beyond gaming. How about installing Mac OS X in an XBox?

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
