Nvidia’s luridly named PhysX technology will bring realistic physics to the PlayStation 4, the graphics company has announced. Developers will be able to utilise new software development kits on Sony’s next generation system, which in turn will result in more life-like destruction, character models, and clothing. Yeah, Nathan Drake’s famous half-tuck is going to look incredible on PS4.

Unsurprisingly, Nvidia isn’t the only company porting its tools to the console either. Lighting software maker Geomerics and artificial intelligence outfit Xaitment both announced their support for the platform earlier in the week. If you're not a developer, all you really need to know is that this is going to result in better looking games. Don’t believe us? Check out PhysX’s impressive implementation in Batman: Arkham City courtesy of the trailer embedded below.
