Rumor Hype: Microsoft and Sony Parts, the Same?

The message reads:

Everyone, this is a rumor…

A well placed source within IBM let something slip to me the other day… and he doesn’t know I’m writing this… but I just can’t keep this in. This person who shall remain nameless is working on the physical architecture of the CPU for the PSIII and the Xbox II. Wow I said what’s that like? Then he drops the bomb… he says “Well I shouldn’t be telling you this but the CPU’s we are selling Sony and Microsoft are the SAME!!!” It turns out that what IBM is doing is moving around parts on the CPU to make them look different but the technology is the same!!! Also he said they are hoping that Sony and Microsoft don’t figure it out…

Now again, this is a rumor… so no Slashdoting, this is just for you guys…

Stay tuned…
