NVIDIA has announced that Sony's PlayStation 4 console will support its latest collision detection and physics technology.
The graphics pioneer has distributed its Nvidia PhysX and Nvidia APEX development kits to PS4 programmers to help bolster the machine's visual capabilities.
PhysX and APEX tech can be used to create cutting-edge collision detection in games, as well as simulate rigid bodies, clothing, fluids, particle systems and more.
"Great physics technology is essential for delivering a better gaming experience and multiplatform support is critical for developers," said Mike Skolones, product manager for PhysX at NVIDIA.
"With PhysX and APEX support for PlayStation 4, customers can look forward to better games
Odd that they are going with AMD APU but will support nVidia PhysX, but it is a welcome addition.
One of the main gripes I have with games today is all the clipping that happens, hopefully this tech will minimize that.
