Yea, I agree with what TSHF said. I'm not gonna tell you, "GET THIS CONSOLE, OMGz ITS GONNA PIZZOWN." Actually, I hate people that do that. Instead, I'm giving you the specs so that you can decide for yourself. Everyone needs a PC, thats universal. But as for the question of whats better for gaming; Its the console (ok, so the controls suck, but you get used to em).

And just for the record. PS3 does 218 gigaflops, not 2 Teraflops. I was wrong and I already corrected myself. As for the Xbox vs. PS3 question; The XBOX360 Magazine ITSELF said that the PS3 blows the X360 out of the water with raw power.

Anyways, most of the PS3 game previews at E3 looked pre-rendered. Also, at the time of E3, Sony didn't even have a working cell processor at all. It was still just a design. They were making huge claims with no proof.
DUDE, read up. This was asked what, 3 times already?

And yea, your second paragraph is true.

Actually I was just talking about that the 360 has my favor but I still perfer PC. Then you start calling me a idiot noob ******* for not wanting the PS3 over the 360 so I was just responding. The PC is better because of the features, gameplay, community, and the controls.

And yet again you prove your ignorance.

Its the architecture that keeps it from being implemented in a PC.

Try googling it cause I honestly don't remember. All I can learn is what other people say cause I am just some guy from Ohio. But anyways I don't think that it will take that long to develop a CPU that equals or if not better then the cell. Show me your sources if you can remember.

Here look at this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cell_(microprocessor) I am kind of busy right now because I am trying to watch a football game (Bengals just got an interception ) lol.

Wow they got it up to 5.2GHz :amazed: that thing would be screaming.

So what if the cell has 2 teraflops, it isn't going to help that much no matter what you say. I think that the cell could be better then the multi-core but I will have to wait and see cause it says that "You might be able to call the Cell's SPEs overgrown math units, but we think Sony's Cell processor wins from a brute power perspective".
Does anyone remember the... "Emotion Engine"?

The Cell was designed to be a gaming console processor. IBM and Sony (with Toshiba) spefecifically had IBM design the processor for them on the spot
The Cell isn't going to be used in just the PS3, it's going to be in other electronic products, too.

I know. Toshiba is going to use it in their TVs and stuff. But no PCs.
