The pioneering game-chip engineers behind the revolutionary Cell microprocessor tell the story of its creation in this “fast-paced tell-all” (Steve Cherry, IEEE Spectrum Magazine).
 
The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game systems have changed the face of home entertainment. But few know the amazing story inside the consoles—how David Shippy and his team of engineers at the Sony/Toshiba/IBM Design Center (STI) forged the tiny miracle at the core of it all: a revolutionary microprocessor chip that set a new paradigm in personal computing.

At stake were the livelihoods—and sanity—of an unsung group of tireless visionaries. At war were the giants Microsoft and Sony. It's a story that's never been told—until now.
