I thought some would be interested. Youre welcome.

While I've been out of the development field for a while now, this will certainly be an interesting read.

Bubbles for you both.

EA should be jumping all over this as well as a few others.

Infinity Ward
Naughty Dog

all used elf magic to make it work, not the hardware.

Wil I gave you a agree and bubble, seems some don't want to see that....

This doesn't seem like it'd be of much use unless you have a devkit.

The Cell processor lectures and papers, at least.

You can use this knowledge with linux installed on your PS3. There are more tutorials on the net about that as well. I learned how to move memory from main RAM to an SPE's local store in a few minutes. As well as how to create a thread and apply an SPE to do the task.

You don't need a devkit to program on the PS3, you just won't be able to use the RSX. All you need to do is install linux and download the IBM compiler for the Cell, and you get to use the main processor and 6 SPUs.

Im starting to read this, it seems okay for now, i hope it's this easy further on...
