Most consoles don't have heating problems its only if you put it in a closed environment. Keep in mind the graphically this is no way near what the 360 can do. If you need evidence of this look at halo compared to halo 2 on the old xbox.

Yeh which sort of backs up my point about this being no where near what the 360 can do. Developers had used compents like the P3 before so they knew what to do with it, but with the 360 they have to program for 3 cores at once something which hasn't been done in gaming before and a totaly new graphics card.

Well its not a first, well first for three cores, the guys at sony are coding for 8 though, and multicore started with the pc although we havent seen alot of it yet in the games it is there and much of the technolgy was pioneered there. But the guys working on the cell cpu have been doing multi core software for a while(even before the cpu was ready) its been in development for almost a decade now.
