Xbox 360 Games on PowerMacs

Anandtech noticed that the playable Xbox 360 games available at E3 didn't seem to be all that impressive for a next-gen console. They found out why. The games were in fact running on Apple PowerMac G5s. The irony is more than a little bit delicious that MS products were being promoted using Apple hardware. I can't wait to see what happens if/when Steve Jobs picks this up and runs with it.

Please note, I'm not really bashing MS here. The actual console isn't going to be out until the end of the year. Both MS and Sony had more smoke-and-mirrors rather than actual hardware running actual games. Nevertheless, the future looks very interesting to say the least.
