Well the thing is that they usually develop processors through contracts. The PowerPC line has always been their own line, but processors like the Xbox 360's tri-core, the PlayStation 3's Cell processor and the Revolution's processor are all through contracts. Heck, sometimes I wonder how IBM even manages to fabricate and manufacture all those CPU's at once, because once all those console launch, the fabs are going to be producing A LOT.
