I'm a CSE (computer science engineer) and to say that the wii, the 360 or even the PS3 have more computing power than my desktop PC just for the speed of the processor or the amount of memory on the console has no real grounds. Even if you're IBM's CEO. It's like comparing oranges and apples.Originally Posted by fiveryanfrenzy
Gaming consoles have processors streamlined to gaming and memory dedicated to gaming. If you could (and probably you can't) for example try to run a Financial or Accountable application with moderate complexity your PS3 will probably crash 10 out of 10 times or your Wii would fry its floating point processor.
No way to compare one to another.
