And on we go
I have ten ps4's in my house. If some of you give me your bank details then ill ship you one to beta test.
Did anyone fall for that before reading this statement of me confirming that I'm lying?
If, come Christmas, the Japs and Americans are playing on shiny new PS4s and I'm not, I'll have a face like a smacked arse.
And that's all I have to say about that.
News: PlayStation 4 gets Nvidia PhysX And APEX support - CVG UK

I wonder if this engine prevents the annoying glitches (or GFX limitations) of limbs going through walls when you kill someone, say call of duty.
Keeping my options open at the moment in regards to which next gen I will be buying
I dont like the xbox controller but I wont be letting let stop me buying the 720 if significantly better!! But to be honest based on the known and rumoured specs we know at the moment it looks like the PS4 is the way to go (Hope they get the PSNetwork side sorted and working better)
interested to see what the better steam box is going to be like
Main issues with that atm, the way look at it anyway, is the cost of the box (got a feeling it wont be cheap) but more so the linix & steam issues
game are window based they opened steam on linix recently and there was only 60 games available!!!!
Either way gen gaming is going to look awesome on projector!!! I think I need to win the lotto to free up more gaming time!!!
Phys X looks good.
me too. too much glitching. its not so bad offline but online it can get you killed.
It's International Women's day today so surprise your wives with a PS4 preorder.
"Honey, you've been working so hard to keep the house clean, food on the table, and socks in my drawers. So to show you how much I appreciate you and am proud of you, I got you a PS4 on preorder."
Mine (future) would love that!!!!! Bit worried I have to share it to be honest LOL
She'll hang out on our forums while you're hogging the PS4!
Found this link to a tweet from Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment on another site.
The only system requirments I can see for the Oculus Rift is an HDMI port.

I wouldn't get to exicited about PhysX with PS4 it will be software emulated as AMD hardware doesn't have hardware PhysX as that's a Nvidia exclusive, you wont see the level of detail and FX as in the demo vids it not possible with software alone, If anything it's a Dig by Nvidia to say look what you really could of had if you stayed with us.
Hard to say that at the moment though, maybe after somethings shown or more information is made available, but I can't see them spouting this, then letting it get gimped somehow.
Maybe everything slung together will show off some nice touches/effects, or more.
I hardly see it as a "dig".
Look what the ps3 did with very limited memory and Lightweight gpu.
The ps4 should be amazing, much faster memory and 16 times more. Plus new and better techniques for graphics. I can't wait
Need this by Christmas
ok i may have been off the mark with Nvidia dig remark but really all Nvidia are saying is that PS4 will use PhysX which with it being more PC based isn't surprising AMD does use PhysX but as i said it's software based, the video that CVG used to show the differences with Hawken isn't a fair comparision as it was used to show off Nvidias GTX 600 line of graphics cards which of course has Hardware based PhysX and one of the promotion points Nvidia uses against AMD cards.
in the end with PS4 and software PhysX it will be better than no PhysX at all which is a great thing it will for sure add to the games , i guess all im saying is people shouldn't look at that Hawken vid and think PS4 will be doing the same level of PhysX becasue it cant.
hardware? surely its running in a "compute" type environment, in Nvidia this would be its CUDA cores/language, but it will still be software simulations just offloaded from the CPU to the GPU which really is suited to that sort of task. This is running on the graphics hardware but its not a secret type of processor so really there is no reason for it to not run on an AMD GPU.
Michael Pachter really does love to pluck things out of thin air. He reckons Micrsoft will win next generation, when their console Hasn't been announced.
Pachter picks Microsoft to win next console generation | VG247
yeah. i just saw that.
im sure skype and a tv tuner are the killer apps. <sigh>
i would rather have a more powerful console though
What a knob.
I've been disregarding pretty much anything Pachter says for years now.
Here's a nice video showing physx on mafia 2, Good to see will be getting stuff like this.

Skype & TV Tuner,
1. Skype is available on the Vita so surely it will come the PS4 to.
2. Why do I need a TV tuner (Freeview) when I have Sky TV.
I will buy the PS4 ultimately for gaming.
Sky Go on PS4 would be nice though.
I reckon Sky Go app will appear for the PS4.
I'd settle for the following channels:
All other channels can lick my arsehole... especially Nickelodeon because if that's available then no other channel would ever be on my TV with 4 kids in the house from 1-13. If I have to watch Spongebob ONE MORE TIME...
