Sony Basically Designed the Xbox 360 Processor

A new book written by two IBM engineers claims that, during the development cycle, Sony’s research and development money was spent helping to build the processor for the Xbox 360. Ouch. Definitely interesting reading.

In "The Race for a New Game Machine," he and his co-worker Mickie Phipps tell the story of the whole effort to build the Cell. They also describe how the project went off the rails, ending up with IBM engineers creating the processing chips for two rival videogame consoles and, along the way, delivering to Sony Corp. one of its greatest business failures.
