    PlayStation 4 Ditching The Cell Processor, Sources Say, Which Leads to Some Wild Theories.

    I don't really care if they use cell processors or not, but I don't want some POS AMD processor in my next Gen Playstation. YLOD was bad enough with the BC PS3s but with an AMD what's next? Exploding YLOD?

    I really hope they wait a long time with the PS4. I enjoy myself with my PS3 and i'm still not done with it. As for the processors, i don't know, as long it's an improvement off this generation consoles it's fine by me. Just don't see that their will be a huge difference between the PS3 and the PS4.

    AMDs really aren't bad in my opinion. And in the end, it would probably make the system cost less than if they went with a 430 core multi cell bonanza extravaganza processor, that would be an upgrade of their current.

    AMD processors are not THAT bad. The truth of the matter is. The Cell's never worked in the PS3. The way they were designed to work in the first place. And if I'm not mistaken. The new Xbox and the Wii U are also going to run AMD's as well.
    Secondly ylod wasn't caused by the chips. But the inexpensive/inadequate fans that were put into the BC PS3's. If you don't want an AMD processr in your next gen consoles. The simple solution is this. Don't buy one. Problem solved.

    I thought AMD's were supposed to be good? Whatever, I'll be putting this snip-it of news under the "Rumors" section and it doesn't bother to me as long as the PS3 gets at least 3-5 more years of play time.

    agreed I never thought of that way.
    I role Intel in Pc but for consoles it would make it more affordable. PS3 for life

    What's wrong with AMD? Both of my desktops have AMDs in them & I've never had problems with either. Ones in an XP machine that's been going fine for 6-7 years now. So I have no problem if AMD is in the ps4. What it really needs is more than .5Gb of memory, which is what the ps3 has.

    I don't even know what a cell processor nor what an AMD is, but I guess it has to do with the hardware? I'm gonna have to go with the other comments and not take this as bad news until I reseasrch.
