Processing 3D video? Sony’s Cell-based rig can be yours for ¥2.6million

The MPE-200 multimedia processor goes on sale next week for an actually quite reasonable ¥2,625,000 ($30,000), considering what it offers. Bet James Cameron paid a bit more than that for his.

That linked press release below is in Japanese, but click here for a rough and ready MT if you’re feeling lazy - it covers the basics at least.

And if I was still a ‘proper’ journalist working for The Man, I’d be required to mention here that the MPE-200 uses the same Cell Broadband Engine processor as found in the PlayStation 3, possibly putting (PS3) in brackets too just to clarify for the hard of thinking, but I’ve packed that in for the PR life of Riley, so I won’t bother. You can work it out for yourselves, right? grin
