Forums - Sony Discussion - Exclusive: PS4 / Orbis Rumoured To Feature “Native” OpenGL

http://www.thesixthaxis.com/2012/04/11/exclusive-ps4-orbis-rumoured-to-feature-native-opengl/

 

Anonymous sources? Seems like everyone in the industry has at least two. On each arm.

Our little birdy has been whispering into our shell-like recently, and seems to know a thing or two about the next generation PlayStation, widely rumoured to be – in terms of codename at least – called Orbis.

Our source gave us a knowing nod on that account, but also suggested something that developers might well be interested in: Orbis will support OpenGL natively.

“OpenGL is a layered API on the PS3,” our source told us. “It’s much easier to use than LibGCM, which is the main PS3 system.”

So, with the PS3, OpenGL is emulated on top of LibGCM. ”With Orbis, though,” our source added, again suggesting that the name is sticking, “OpenGL is native.”

Naturally, we need to stamp this one with a big fat RUMOUR sign. But it’s not a massive big sticker or anything, more a subtle little peelable one – like the ones you get on apples.

Makes sense.

I do not know much about the orbit of this planet, ask Kaz or Mr. Stickball about that, but that PS4 controller is freaking sweet!

 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

If only it were the true controller. I'd be afraid of it breaking though
