Today's technology section in the New York times mentions video game consoles. Those consoles include the PLAYSTATION 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii.
The article clearly describes the Wii as it is, but makes some major mistakes on the PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360. Here is the excerpt.
“Those who have spent the day trading carbon credits have another opportunity to save the planet, this time from aliens in Halo 3, the third edition of the Xbox 360 game. The PlayStation 3 game Gran Turismo 5, a hyper-realistic, high-speed journey, is one of the best sellers for that Sony console, which starts at $299. Microsoft’s Xbox starts at $280. Both are built around the multicore Cell processor, which allows numerous tasks to be done simultaneously.”Now, can you tell me where the errors are? No, well, take a look at the "answer key" below.
1. Gran Turismo 5 is not “one of the best sellers” for the PLAYSTATION 3, considering it's not even out yet.[Via Nex-Gen.Biz]
2. The PLAYSTATION 3 does not cost $299. Nope, lowest price is actually $399.
3. Both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 aren't “built around the multicore Cell processor.” Thats only the PLAYSTATION 3 buddy.
