sony owns the Toshiba plant...so whose chip is it?

Certainly news to me.
Sony are not even listed as shareholders in Toshiba, let alone owners.

This is what you get when people read business news reports on subjects that they don't really understand. Sony, Toshiba and IBM used to run a 'fab club' based around the IBM PowerPC processors used in the PS games consoles.

The PowerPC alliance was Apple, Motorola, and IBM. The wiki page for PowerPC makes no mention whatsoever of Sony or Toshiba manufacturing these chips but instead mentions Motorola and IBM.

Try looking at the right page
