At CEDEC 2009 (http://cedec.cesa.or.jp/2009/en/index.html), Sony Computer Entertainment exhibited the Physics Effects SDK. The Physics Effects SDK is a physics simulation engine optimized for the Cell Broadband Engine, which is provided as part of the PlayStation 3 SDK. Because the Physics Effects SDK is optimized for PlayStation 3, it can do physics simulations very fast, even though they are considered to impose a very high computing load. This could expand developers’ scope to include even more complex physical phenomena and mechanisms in games.
