according to ign, "The next Xbox system will produce more than a teraflop of processor performance using a multi-core processor architecture, which the company co-developed with IBM."
now this sounds way out of wack with what I have heard thus far, PS3 is 256 giga flops (theoretical) and it is supose to be a lot more powerful than xbox2 wo that do you think?

Dark Sector takes a new turn!
By: Justin Pinter
If you can recall E3 2005, Dark Sector was the first next gen title announced for the PS3 and from the tech demo and images shown, it looked to be a more of sci-fi build of game.
Well, do to recent adjustments, the guys at Digital Extremes have decided to shift the game into a new direction and here at PS3Land.com we have the whole story for you.
Steve Sinclair, the game's director, explained to GameInformer in their recent issue on what gamers can now expect in Dark Sector with the new changes.
"The essence of what we wanted to do hasn't changed, in terms that the character is still Haden Tenno, and he's still following this sort of messianic journey, but the setting has definitly changed considerably...The thing that we kept hearing from people was realism...realism, and natural enviroments, and plausibilty."
The story behind Dark Sector follows a character named Haden, an assassin employed by an American government agency to investigate strange happenings in the Balkin state of Lasria.
When starting the game you find that Dark Sector is codename for the bioengineered expieriments happening at Lotus Complex in Lasria. Basically, the projects go bad and a virus breaks out turning humans and animals into monsters. The infected organisms quickly transform into partially metallic lifeforms and are driven mad by the pain caused from the transformation.
Haden is intrested due to the fact that he is a killing machine who is sent in to investage the virus but while there is infected. However, instead of turing crazy, Haden finds himself in control of the virus forming a genetic defect called Familial Dysautonmia, which disables him to feel pain.
Sinclair stated, "You always have to have some kind of wierd superhero quirk."
To continue, Haden throughout the game will learn new ablities with his ever progressing infection including an ability you start with from the begining of the game called the "mag disc". The disc is a weapon you are equiped with from the begining; a 3-bladed throwing weapon that forms from the hand. You will use this "mag disc" to dismember enemies, grab distant objects, and much more. Sinclair joked by stating, "If we f--- this up, then we've lost everything."
Other than the disc, Haden will have powers and guns at his disposal. One of the things Sinclair touched base on was the fact that the animations in Dark Sector will be more realistic- in terms of using the weapons. For example: Haden will be hestitant at first when using the disc but as the game progresses and you use the weapon more, your attacks and animations will be faster and more fluid. Also, as the game unfolds you will fight many bosses where once you defeat them you will earn new abilities. One of them being the ability to create shields on the go using your disc to fan out and block any oncoming attacks.
With other details still scare (aka: multiplayer) Digital Extremes promises that there will be many more secrets yet to be unvailed. Dark Sector is set to release sometime next fall so I guess there will be plenty of time to find out more on the upcoming next gen title. Look for Dark Sector to ship for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC in 2007.

DUE to, not do to :)

There were quite a few redundancies...like saying 'next fall' and also saying '2007' - the first implies the second.
Also, removed the opinionated part, and changed 'aka' to 'such as'.
A really detailed article though.
PS: Have not made this a feature article because I wasn't too keen on the title you used in the feature image...
