I am a huge fan of the APU's from AMD, they can run very quick with great graphics while staying nice and cool and not overheating. They are easily tweak-able on the fly modifying voltages, clock cycles, and multipliers without system crashes. I currently still use the first generation APU with 4 cores and a 6800 series radeon graphics card, the Trinity line of APU's now goes to 7900 series radeon. I output to a 48" display in 1080p and 60fps no problems, and this APU is going to about double CPU power if not more than double and well definitely boost the on die GPU. I can use the dolphin emulator or pcsx2 and normally get close to 1080p 30fps. Not to mention the huge benefit of price, the cpu quality compares to high core i5's while the GPU quality alone would cost 200-300 to match with stand alone hardware, in contrast the APU costs $130 with everything on die while somehow miraculously still idling at 15c and topping at 59c using stock crappy heat sinks. I know the APU haven't been reviewed highly for enthusiast but your able to achieve enthusiast quality while putting in less money that going Celeron. I think that unless Microsoft jumps onto the APU bandwagon to there will be no price comparison between the two, at a minimum the price will close to double for just CPU/GPU combos if they go another road and to get comparable speeds maybe as far as quadruple.

Sony also said after the flop of pspGo that they wouldn't try that again for a while. The patent they recently got for the new form of Blu-ray should help ease the worries there to. Using a small chip in the disc to prevent second hand game sales. If this was more about Sony trying to shut down GameStop style stores I would support stopping second hand game sales until companies like that died out, however since it's sony just going after more sales and stopping peer to peer sales as well it's really uncool but whatcha gonna do I suppose Microsoft plans something similar as well. The steambox won't use second hand games either and right now that seems more an option for home consoles users than the new xbox just on what I know now.
