Sony used Nvidia last round. Yeah, Xbox used AMD and so did Nintendo. It's not too suprising to see them stick with those companies if they are given the proper deal, but it just surprises me a little bit because Nvidia seems to really be knocking it out of the park right now in PC gaming. The AMD cards aren't bad by any means, but there are tons of games that just run better on Nvidia. You would think everybody would go with the company that currently is on top of things. Especially Sony, considering they had Nvidia last round.
Hopefully AMD will have some decent GPU's in those systems, but I have a hard time believing the Nvidia part wouldn't have had more bang per buck, unless AMD is just giving everybody an amazing deal and really undercutting Nvidia on the pricing.
How is Nvidia's stock doing if they have no console play? They have a bunch of portable GPU chips they sell right? I'm just a bit surprised that they would be content to let the console business just evaporate.
