Sound channels...

N64 - done in software, 1 channel eats up about 1% of total processing power

PSx - 24 in hardware
Saturn - 32 in hardware
PS2 - 48 in hardware + "infinite" in software
Game Cube - 54 in hardware
DC - 64 in hardware with 3D positional audia


And...now the kicker...

X-Box - 256 in hardware + 64 in hardware (3D positional audio)
Finally, a console gets a sound chip that beats out SBLive and A3D...
