This is another reason why I don't trust IGN.
That article is filled with so many technical wrongness that I want to kick Gerry Block in the face.
meh...reading that was so pointless imho.
9-core Cell processor and gaming consoles that cannot do physics.
they don't have the mighty "physX" card, that's why lol
Meh, that doesn't mean that there are alternatives.

thus the "lol"
its because programmers are getting lazier by the moment! D:

HDR, physics, etc. The consoles can do it, albeit at a different degree of quality (or fidelity, whichever interpretation you want to adopt) but saying that such things is not the greatest thing for the industry and fucks up the perception that both the customers and companies (publishers and manufacturers) both agreed on.
I myself dont really like IGN myself...just they never appealed to me, but yeah...this article seriously doesn't help....
I was skeptical when i read about 802.11n ... wasn't that named one of the biggest technological flops/failures of the last decade?
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
