(I'm not counting Linux as the majority of consumers do not use it)
This is where the bleed over effect from the game boxes will come into play, they are moving in the same direction very soon(dont ask me why,TV resolution blows chunks), anyway, once that happens, its a safe bet that games will be ported to the x86 multicore platform that will take advantage of parallel processing.
I wanna know why these game boxes havent just up and moved into the next level where a decent rgb monitor is needed, it would make lots of sense, at $200 each for a ps2, whats another $75 for a monitor, or have I been missing something?(no I dont do game boxes, quit after the ps1)
