Lost in the shuffle is the fact that the current games that are out there are only using about 20 percent to 25 percent of the bandwidth. Once the publishers' excitement reaches a level of intensity that they start using more of the bandwidth, that will create additional excitement.

The early anxiety is that the Cell chip is expensive for consumer electronics applications. But prices come down, and for the first time in the last few months the Cell chip group is beginning to come up with Cell applications that are quite exciting. And I don't mean just the Stanford supercomputer (type of application), but beyond that. We're clearly at the stage where the opportunities for that high-powered processor are gathering momentum.
*gasp* cancer curing apps?

sony pr is definately t3h win

Howard Stringer and the rest of Sony's head honchos should just STFU when it comes to technical figures or details. Mr. Stringer is clueless when it comes to anything related to the PS3's abilities. What does bandwidth have to do with the PS3? Is the PS3 now a DSL modem or something??

Glad I'm not the only one that was chuckling at those statements. Did you see how many quotes that Sony PR dept. had to call back and correct or gloss over?

Good stuff.

Harrison sounds smart but in every interview before and around the time of the PS3 launch he kept saying how Motorstorm is going to be this killer app..... when it wasn't even a launch title. He was basiclaly telling people to wait for Motorstorm to come out. I just think it was a dumb move, he should of been out there hyping Resistance instead.

To be fair, hes probably spent closer time with motorstorm than most or all of the launch titles. Motorstorm was developed right near his HQ of SCEE so if hes more impressed about motorstorm than resistance he probably has a good reason to be. Plus there was a free demo at launch so its not a big deal to make a comment like that. Resistance isnt even 1st party, more like "2nd party" software.

Harrison is easily the smartest and well spoken reps working @ sony imo. He actually thinks before he speaks sort to speak. And by well spoken, I mean he can make something boring turn into something pretty interesting just by how he explains something. Besides...Nothing good comes from when kaz, kutaragi, stringer, or dille speaks.

Actually its completly 3rd Party. Insomiac is not related to Sony at all, they just prefer Sony over other publishers and consoles because of the strong ties they have had with them in the past. Sony gives them the DevKits first alot of the times and even shares information on engines and development. Naughty Dog and Insomiac often share alot of information...

All jokes aside, it's more along the lines of, I'd rather listen to someone who knows what they are talking about.

This is true, but I would put them more along the lines as "2nd party" because even though they are not run by Sony, their games are pretty much published by Sony. Not to mention the support Sony gives Insomniac over other 3rd party developers, Q&A testing and dedicated servers for example.
