    Haven't looked at the linked article, But all the ps3 footage displayed at E3 was rendered on a computer,There is no working PS3.

    Likewise while the Xbox footage was "ingame" it was running on a PC,meant to represent the level the new Xbox will run at.....

    Peter Moore: The games we showed were working off alpha test kits using a PC graphics ship, not the actual graphics chip from our system. The games are running at about 30% of their actual capability. Our dev kits are still only in the alpha stage, and we have not delivered beta kits yet.


    So, Yeah, I know the dev kits are to be G5 based,and that the Xbox itself is to run on a G5 cpu,no real indication as to the exact components the display was running on though, I would presume though it would be a G5......Still, it would be easy enough to chuck a gaming rig together,load on a current game and call it the amazing new next generation console.....
