It looks like Intel will be designing Sony's next gen console's GPU. It will most likely be an off-shoot of the Larrabee GPU architure. It is also unknown as of yet if Intel will also take part in the CPU design of the console. Due to current economic times it was a no brainer for Sony to go with Intel. However, I personally think this will backfire on them as Larrabee has yet to be proven as a worthy GPU. Very much like counting your chickens before they hatch, is what Sony just did. Also, with Intel's "our way, or no way" type of business & designing they do, Sony really are taking a gamble here. They have no choice, however.
