All 3 NextGen Consoles to be powered by the blue!

Big Blue, IBM, International Business Machines, will make processors for the PS3, XBox2, and Super Nintendo Entertainment System 128 Sphere boy.

It is rumored that G5 liscenced technologies will find its way onto the XBox2. XBox and Nintendo will use ATI Graphics cards. Not sure about the PS2.

Where the hell did...
"Super Nintendo Entertainment System 128 Sphere boy"

come from , that has got to be the most made up name I've ever heard, didn't think Nintendo had made any plans for a next gen console , other than a few rumblings from them about some mysterious wireless device that they may or may not be working on...

Ditto. Interesting thought, nevertheless. It'd be awesome if they'd make a game system that you could go bowling with.

Erm, does Nintendo really intend to take part in the fight of next generation consoles ? Haven't they learnt anything from the N64 and GameCube failures ?

The GameCube is hardly a failure. As a matter of fact, I believe it's still then number 1 selling game console on the market right now.

'tis in europe anyhow, fueled by a neat price cut, that's why I bought mine, now if only they had come in originally around that price they may very well be somewhere up there with the PS2 by now.

Gamecube could have been so much better if Nintendo didn't fuck it up so much.

Broader demographics is OKAY!

Broader demographics? Nintendo has a buttload of games for people of all ages. How much broader can you get?

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Teenagers to adults.

Seems pretty broad to me.

Those are game marketing Demographics. Not system marketing demographics. Besides, ESRB != Demographic.

A good example of rating and demographic is southpark. South Parks producers may say that its intended for audiances over 18 but surely its marketed to middle and high school kids. Same goes with Tabaco before Truth.com and all the lawsuits. The same also goes with Alcohol.

Its not that I am likening the GameCube to Tobaco and Alochol products. I'm just saying its marketed towards a younger audiance.

System Marketing is different than Game Marketing

How exactly is the GameCube marketed towards a younger audience? And if so, how exactly is the Xbox marketed towards an older audience? If you want to get down to the nitty gritty about how a system attracts an audience, you might want to ask what "mature" person would look at an Xbox and say "Wow, the snot-green accents on that humongous chunk of plastic really look modern and well thought out." And don't get me started on the controllers. I refuse to rehash all that defecation again.

That's because it's not. It's marketed to everyone. There's no single group that Nintendo is trying to sell their systems to. They're just marketing their systems and games to people who enjoy quality, fun video games.

There is this guy i know. I don't like him. But his mom works for NOA. I use to buy Nintendo shit through her. If I can find a way to ask her without talking to her son I will ask her some questions about the GC.

They aren't going to be the same. They are all going to have processors designed or codesigned by the same company.

Intel makes the Pentium 4, Celeron (shitty Penitum 4), Itanium, and Xeon. IBM also makes many different processors. Even though all the consoles will have a chip designed or codesigned and produced by IBM or licensed by IBM they will probably be different chips.

Also XBOX and Nintendo will have Ati GFX cards. I don't know what type of GFX card PS3 will have but hopefully they wont shit out on it like with the PS2, for the developers.

I wouldn't be surprised if Sony decided to go with nVidia for the GFX on the PS3. But that's only my speculation. I don't really care.

It also makes me wonder... IBM is a good processor manufacturer. Why don't they make mainstream processors for computers like Intel and AMD do? The processor in my GameCube might only be 485mhz, but I know it would kick the shit out of my Hewlett Packard.

OK! i gey that they wont be the same. But if the PS3 goes with nVidia, i'm sorry to say that it might suck. because the only nVidia that contends with ATI is the new 5250 and that is alittle on the expensive side. but you never know they might come out with somhing that will blow your mind.

I guess I misworded myself. When I said computers, I actually meant PCs. My bad. Most of the time, I don't even think of Macs when the word 'computer' is spoken.

The GeForce3 was out when microsoft came out with the XBOX and that uses a GeForce2. Nvidia was leader at that point and there was a shift in power amongst the graphics card companies. To say that because nVidia is behind today so they will be behind tomorrow is fucked up.

More on current XBoX GPU
http://www.gamespot.com/gshw/stories...764159,00.html


As I have stated and linked to in other threats...
The next microsoft offering will supposedly use multiple modified G5's in its next console. The next xbox will not be compatable with Xbox one games. eta: late 2005

The PS3 will use a proccessor still in development by IBM called the CELL Proccessor. The PS3 will also have a PS2 and a PSONE CPU as to ensure backward compatibility with both consoles. eta: late 2006

Very little info has been released about the next nintendo console offering.

PS3 will more likely emulate PS2 and PS1 hardware as its cheaper to do and possible given the hard ware specs of PS3. XBOX2 will also likely emulate the XBOX1 hardware.

that article on the xbox gpu was very nice.
