I wonder what processors are being used by Consoles and are they also tri, quad and hexa just like for PC?

thanks,

I see that PS3 is having just single core.


PS3
(2006) Cell
3.2GHz
1 Main Core
512KB L2
7 Auxiliary SIMD Units
1.75MB Local Memory
217.6 GFLOPS
25.6 GB/s Memory




I wonder how does it manage to run modern games such as GTA IV which need quad minimum ?

It's sort of an 8 core processor. See this for a better description.

Wikipedia also has some good info on the cell processor.
