If either company does get into trouble, then they'd just sell off the brand. That creates the question:
Who would you want to buy Playstation?
Who would you want to buy Xbox?

What has this to do with playstation/xbox ^^

Pach said if they were to go out of business, Sony and MS would know this well ahead of time and buy enough chips well in advance so that they could continue production...He also said that by them buying so many all at once, that that would probably give AMD the money it needed to avoid bankruptcy anyway.

What are you talking about? Did you even read the article? It is talking about the possibility of AMD going out of business and its impact on its two major customers: MS and Sony.

I know. I'm just trying to ask a simple question in the chance that any of these companies goes under. No need to freak out.

Prepare for AMD doom articles. I just got back from the store. I picked up the AMD F-Series 8320 CPU. Only 129.99 (Usually 150 almost everywhere else though). Its an 8 core CPU 3.5 (4.0 Turbo) processor. Its an excellent deal for anyone looking to build a decent rig.

I'm pretty sure that GlobalFoundries actually manufactures the APUs in both consoles, so if AMD dissolved it would probably only hurt the development of revisions and die shrinks.
