Here’s a good and funny article on the next generation of game consoles and what gamers will want from them, regardless of game company hype – A Gamer’s Manifesto.
The Sony Playstation 3 is going to cost $465.00. In the desolate economic climate of post-apocalyptic 2006, I’m thinking that’s going to be a lot of money. Now, it’s true that at E3 Sony was boasting the Playstation 3 could crank out 1.8 TFLOPS, or 1.8 trillion FLOPS. If that many FLOPS were piled together they would fill the Grand Canyon, assuming each FLOP were the size of a muskrat. So what do gamers want from all that money and FLOP? Just ask them.
