    An anonymous source said, "The machine is not only very capable, it's more capable than the PlayStation 3 of doing stereo,"

    [That's] assuming you don't have one of the old crappy ones with the composite leads... assuming you have a HDMI Xbox.

    "The bottleneck is more on the graphical throughput for rendering out in stereo. E3 is coming up. Microsoft is going to have to go on stage to say something, aren't they?"
