@Kinnar: May be this is an opening room for third player. Perhaps - Nintendo-Apple union can achieve this goal with Intel or A7 Processors. This may produce cool gaming experience.

@elctrnx_lyf, yes after a long time an entire segment is going to be driven by AMD processors, sing Sony and Microsoft both are going to use their processors.

Alternatively it will be flooding of gaming consoles as every child will be willing to go for the new device, and all the previous consoles will go to dustbins, it is very high time to think of modular architecture, so save the entire box going in to dustbins.

You are right @"_hm", third party developments in this directions will be there in pipeline, but I was wondering why the OEMs are not supporting this kind of developments with minor tweaks and additions in the base system, they have very good network stack in their devices, and the era is of could computing these days.

Seems like flooding of gaming consoles. AMD seems to be the clear winner in both the hardware.

@Kinnar: Eventually some vendor will be think similar to you and may come out with unified architecture and it will unique selling point for them. It should happen in near future.

@Sheetal: Yes, I concur with you. Price difference is not that significant and real market price after store discounts is different from this price.

Also, one needs to purchase many more acccessories and games alongwith subscriptions. This where they make most of profit.

And more significantly, user experience is most important aspect, e.g. Apple products. If user loves it, he will pay more for it.

That is correct what you say in case of exclusivity but at the same time these are very sophisticated devices that can surely be used for many other purposes. My words were not a shout towards the profitability of the console manufactures but they were towards motivating the possibilities in reusing the hardware to reduce the over flooding of the hardware's in today's life.

Both of these console are already multi-tasking media devices.  I wonder if there's really a demand of a "living room big screen PC".  The console makers have strong motivations to keep the boxes mutually exclusive, as they profit mainly on software/services/ecosystems, instead of hardware alone.

Two Marvell ICs

May be the XBox designers have provided two communication ICs, one for sharing the game data between different Xboxes and other for communicating between the user/joysticks and the XBox. Games generally requires fast and instantaneous data transfers may be that is the reason one chip is dedicated for Wireless Network/Wi-Fi and other for Bluetooth and Near Field Communication.

Overdosing the Hardware for making profits

It seems overdosing hardware in the high-tech home by this kind of duplication of the same architecture devised for two different purposes. I mean the PC and Gaming console. I think they should sell on PC OS cartridge that will serve the purpose of computer on Gaming Console.

The trend of keeping a separating gaming console is becoming a profit making thing for these manufactures, why not to bring up a common device that can serve multiple purposes.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
