Xbox and PowerPC Technology

Mercury News reported that Microsoft had released some preliminary information about the upcoming next-generation Xbox.

An earlier announcement from Microsoft and IBM indicated that IBM processor technology would be used in the upcoming Xbox successor.

This new article reports that the new Xbox will utilize "three IBM-designed 64-bit microprocessors"... presumably based on PowerPC 970 (G5) technology.

Meanwhile, Sony will also be using IBM-based processor technology in their upcoming Playstation successor... and has recently invested in IBM's chip group.
