An inside look at Sony's Next Generation Console

For those who haven't heard about it, PS3 or PlayStation 3 is the next generation or (third generation) of Sony's gaming console which was released in Japan yesterday on November 11 and is going to release in North America on November 17. I wont be around for the launch but I hope I am going to see lots of them early next year. Until then I suggest you browse some pictures of this beautiful console and some early looks of the cell processer, RSX chip and other parts of the console. Cell processor is jointly manufactured by Sony, IBM and Toshiba and packs a massive 22+ Ghz of power in its 7 cores with each running on approximately 3.2 Ghz frequency. You can also download and install Folding(AT)home project by standford university and can run it in the background to utilize the maximum power of this machine for some good use. Here's how cell processor looks in its package:

You can see more PS3 pictures here in a translated version of a Japanese site.
