Submission + - Sony ditching Cell architecture for next Playstation? (kotaku.com)

RogueyWon writes: "According to reports on Kotaku, Sony is planning to ditch the Cell processor that powered the Playstation 3 and may be planning to power the console's successor using a more conventional PC-like architecture provided by AMD. In the PS3's early years, Sony were keen to promote the benefits of its Cell processor, but the console's complicated architecture led to many studios complaining that it was difficult to develop for."
