Nvidia, Sony sign deal over PhysX support on PS3

By on
Nvidia has announced today that it will be giving away the binary version of its PhysX software development kit to registered PlayStation 3 developers for free. The move comes as part of a tools and license middleware agreement that the graphics chip company signed with Sony and will enable game makers to implement hardware-accelerated physics in their projects.

The SDK consists of a full-featured API that enables developers to increase the visual experience of their games by offering creative control over physical interactions and real-time effects previews. The technology, which was most recently adopted in the first person action-adventure title Mirror's Edge, is also compatible with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console and of course PCs fitted with a relatively new GeForce card.
