No one takes advantage of all those processors because multi-threaded processing is astoundingly hard to get right. I'm very curious as to what they think they'll be doing with all those cores. On your PC, they're what keeps Steam and Itunes and the OS and everything else running in the background and not interfering with your game's FPS. I guess since they're going for a PC type architecture, maybe they'll have those demands now on the PS4.
This is what I suspect as well. Or it is possible that game makers will learn to use 8 cores. They learned to use 2 and 4 cores. So 8 cores should be used at max capacity in 3-4 years…
