Xbox/Xbox Games
The good news we all knew - Xbox360 was capable of multi-threading.

The bad news: none of the first-gen games will be able to do it. Not tremendously surprising, with the number of ports expected, but still something strange.

During a talk on multithreaded programming, Microsoft used the three core, two thread per core Xbox360 as an example.

The bombshell was that the first generation of Xbox titles, all of them, are single threaded. Not good.
