"To put it simply, religion answers all the questions science CAN'T ." The fact that the answers can't remotely be proved means that they aren't worth the paper they're written on. Science hunts for answers but rarely puts down a rubber stamp stating that X is the answer to this, they simply list ideas that are logically (and test-ably) feasible....
The lack of 1080p games with Gow3 style graphics isn't due to power utilization, its simply because the RSX gpu doesn't have the fillrate for it (~4GPixel/sec). Alot of post processing effects have been moved to the CPU (Spe programs) to get around burning the fillrate on post processing, but that still produces enough latency to be annoying and I'm sure there are other issues that I can't think...

Started gaming in the 80s, I didn't own a console until I got a Sega Master System (which was popular in my part of the world), got SNES next generation but PC gaming took hold until 2006 (although I got a PS2 in 2004, pretty much just for tekken and GT4) when I returned to console land to experience fantastic games that I've missed out on.
Currently a proud owner of the current console with games still in production
