XBox 360 games single threaded, says Vole
Ha, just yesterday I was mentioning multithreaded/multicore stuff, and here Microsoft comes out of the closet.
It looks like all of the Xbox 360’s first generation of games are single threaded. That means that they cannot directly take advantage of the Xbox 360’s multicore design. (And I say “directly” because though the game might not be multithreaded, the Xbox 360’s OS most assuredly is. So it’ll be able to use multiple cores.)
Now we’ve heard this before. I’m trying to remember where I heard it, let me think.
… ( this is me thinking )
Ah yes. It was me!
Sometimes I amaze even myself.
So what if all the first generation of next generation games are single threaded? Personally, I don’t think it’s a big deal. Once developers get the hang of it, we’ll see even better games coming down the pike.
