Sadly, I guess so.



Naughty Dog: "At Naughty Dog, we're pretty sure we should be able to see leaps between games on the PS3 that are even bigger than they were on the PS2."

PS3 vs 360 sales

Actually, no, it wasn't.  Every single thread that was posted previously people already explained what this article did.  You just can't stand the thought of anything attacking your precious PS3.

Several other people thought it was necessary, as you can see from the posts.

If you didn't like it you didn't have to post here and you could have asked a mod to lock it. If it wasn't necessary it would have likely been locked.

sorry surge, but this is a quote from the "dead in the water" thread

"Extrapolated, then, you can summise that the Cell processor line is terminated, with the current PoweXCell 8i the last one off the production line."

Ah, I just read that you wrote "there won't be a DIRECT successor". Sorry, then, you are right. But the OP in the other thread was still wrong, the cell line is not terminated.



nightsurge said:

Was this really necessary? Even all the threads about this quite plainly and obviously stated that while the Cell BE successor was officially stopped production, that did not mean the PS3 or other devices could not use a revised Cell. All they have to do is commission IBM to design it. The Cell architecture and aspects of the Cell will be used in future IBM products, but IBM will not be creating new "Cells". And since MikeB as well as his friends need some reassurance for their misunderstandings I'll clarify once more: This means they won't be making a DIRECT Cell successor with DIRECT Nomenclature (ie PoweXCell32) by themselves. Others can still have them design one for use. IBM will also be making new products using the ideas and architecture and elements of the Cell but they will not be Cell clones or successors. That's why it fits into the "Cell family" since they will share basic similarities but still be very different.

What a waste of time and a non-news story, MikeB.

You strike me as a very condescending angry person over a simple informational thread simply meant to clear up confusion to those who are interested.

But that quote is basically true.  There will be no "PowerXCell ..." or "Cell ..." named products anymore.  IBM is moving on to a new CPU using parts of the Cell in it.  The only way there will be another Cell boasting the Cell nomenclature is if someone commissions IBM to design it (Sony for PS4).

I guess you just have to know and understand, MikeB.  Unfortunately, I do.
