Single thread for Xbox 360 initially and Inq poo poos on the system

Over at the Inquirer, they report that Microsoft stated the first generation Xbox 360 games were all going to be single threaded. Take that news with a grain of salt as the Inq's been known to be wrong many times. They are also underwhelmed by the quality of the graphics when playing the system at Walmart. That's not suprising as first generation games for new consoles never take full advantage of the system. I am a little disappointed though with the tools for the programmers being out so long that all the games initially will only be single threaded if this is true. Interviews with those involved with Oblivion has stated that they will take advantage of the multiple cores.
