OXM Interview with Bill Gates-- Posted by XanTium on January 18 16:27 EST
The Official Xbox Magazine UK posted a new interview with Bill Gates. Here's a short excerpt:


* OXM: Xbox 360 appears to be a definite step towards your vision of the digital entertainment home and lifestyle. Any hints on what we can expect in our digital entertainment future?
* Bill Gates: Xbox 360 is the fusion of raw technological power and elegant design at an affordable price. There's a lot of talk about killer apps, but as far as I'm concerned, Xbox 360 is the killer app for any HDTV setup.

* OXM: What single feature of the Xbox 360 hardware excites you most?
* Bill Gates: I'm really excited about the three processor cores that IBM developed for Xbox 360. It enables game developers to create amazing, sweeping environments, lifelike AI, realistic physics, richer worlds and stunning visual clarity. Then there's Xbox Live, which is more than just about games - it's about all the people who power new and exciting gameplay experiences.

why even bother asking bill gates anything.. his answers are loaded with corporate BS anyway... read the interview in the jan issue of oxm and the answer he gives to every question is just about the same.

I think Bill Gates forgot how to count... "Single feature" he said 2 things. Plus, the 3-core processor will be much more useful doing other things than just games... *cough* LINUX! *cough* smile.gif

Agreed. Now Shoe's interview with Peter Moore in EGM was pretty cool...especially the "pick 2 games" part. biggrin.gif

You should show them pgr1 from the xbox launch and compare it to pgr3 from the 360 launch then your friends should understand.

That marketing 'speil' is what makes the man the richest in the world.

Im sure the games are only using one processor since there is ONLY ONE OF THEM.
