Next-gen Playstation at E3 '05
Sony is planning to have a playable version of its next-gen Playstation console on display at next year's E3 expo. The console may be unveiled as early as the end of this year, but isn't expected to hit North American retail markets until 2006.
According EE Times, Sony is already evaluating samples of the Cell processor that will power the new console. Developed in conjunction with Toshiba and IBM, Cell chips are being fabbed on a 65-nm silicon-on-insulator process.
