Microsoft’s Xbox 360 follow-up rumored to pack 16 CPU cores

16 Cores is quite the undertaking considering most of the top computers on the market are quad-cores.  4X that looks like it may even be overkill since most games probably won’t even support that kind of processing power.  With these incredibly powerful next generation game consoles I think I may have to purchase both the X-Box and Playstation.  I wonder what the future of gaming will bring.  It may not be too far off to assume we will see more VR interaction of environments that will be so complex and real we won’t be able to tell the difference between real life and our video games.  I think that will be the day when you’ll see more widespread adoption from new users and first time gamers.  It is only a matter of time.
