the first version of the Cell will run hot enough to need a cooling fan.
Wonder how thick that will make the PS3 >.<...it might be like a xbox 0.0...

Sony and IBM want to make sure that the dominance of the PC market enjoyed by Microsoft and Intel is not allowed to extend to this market.
I'm glad someone is lookin out for us. IBM's been lookin at a chance to get back at gates since he fucked them with basic 1.0 , man with nvidia doin the GPU, and the cell bein the processer, can you guys imagine how fast this PS3 will be??

wow...it looks like they're making a computer out of a gaming console...
Wouldn't the costs be huge? Might as well just stick with a computer to play your games...

The PS2 doesn't have a CPU cooling fan, the only one is in the back for the PSU (open it and look if you don't belive me...) and the new ones don't even have that
