NVIDIA will be releasing support for its PhysX and APEX software development kits for the upcoming Sony PlayStation 4. These software technologies are used for collision detection and simulation of rigid bodies, clothing, fluids, and particle systems. PhysX is primarily used to create physics based real-world effects for games while APEX allows for the creation of intricate environments for those effects. Product manager for PhysX Mike Skolones said, “Great physics technology is essential for delivering a better gaming experience and multi platform support is critical for developers,” and also added that, “With PhysX and APEX support for PlayStation 4, customers can look forward to better games.”
