Take a look at this, the next gen kinect is going to get really scary guys, this 16 core potential wont be used MAINLY for games.
I wish the government spied on us more. Maybe they'd bring down the price of consoles?
Surely terrorists scheme in their living room and hang big blueblue prints up on the wall of their plans.
Anyways, 16 cores for a console seems a bit absurd in relation to how games are developed now(or developers WANT to make games) but if they were to make highly threaded games from the get-go I think it could work out pretty well. It had might be harder for individual developers to make their own engines but if they were to use other peoples' engines (which 'they' probably already do) then I don't see where the problem is.
The PS3 being especially hard to code for seems like a completely separate issue that didn't have to do with the cores as much.
