Insomniac’s Chief Creative Officer, Brian Hastings’ love letter to the PS3

I’m really excited to hear about the CPU advantage. I’m certainly a tech programmer myself, but it’s hard to get a good feel from white papers and specs. You really need to work with the hardware and tune it with some performance intensive software that you are very familiar with.
