Overclocking means making your device take in more electricity in order to function beyond its shipping capablility.


If you were to OC the ps3 and unlock the cell I believe you'll be able to get 60fps+ and/or 1080p graphics.


You can overclock the xbox becuase it will red ring.


To start off next-gen Sony should release an overclock device to unlock the ps3 and to fully optimize the games.


Imagine Uncharted 3 in 1080p

Dumb thread from dump OP. Didn't miss you.

My 60GB PS3 would explode if I did that. The XBox 360 Slim can't Red Ring ever. No matter how much you could overclock it. Overclocking a game console would be a bad idea, as some games would literally crash in the middle of game play.

It does not matter if this is even possible, you can overclock as much as you want, but you won't change the way game is programed, only thing you would achive is maximized fps

This is a completly irrelevant topic. Consoles can't be overclocked and no amount of speculation will change that. If you really want to overlock, get a PC.
