I dont think its all that different you know. I think that the main central core is very similar to a Power PC chip and then all the sub-cores (SPEs or whatever?) are what makes the chip vastly different. I think many are saying that the demos shown at E3 were pretty much all only utilising the main core (as I dont think there are actual CELLs available) and this would be the same for the initial wave of games, implying to me that the central core must be very similar to a PowerPC chip they are using for development.

This is just one article which made me think that: (the way he says the sub-cores could in future be used to provide Physics calcs)
