PS4 gets huge support from middleware firms

Sony’s PlayStation 4 will be supported by a variety of middleware firms, bringing the likes of xaitControl, Morpheme 4 and SpeedTree to the next-generation games console.

Companies including Naturalmotion, Geomerics and xaitment have all signed up to PS4, reports Develop.

First up, Morpheme 4 by Natrualmotion is an animation tool that affords developers advanced prediction modelling capabilities to help construct complicated integrations between animation and AI systems.

Next is lightning tech Enlighten, which has been used already in blockbuster titles including Battlefield 3. Geomerics has said that PS4’s extra memory muscle and computer resource will allow for improved and more realistic lightning effects in next-gen projects. (PS4, Sony)

When you listen to developers and provide a console thats easy to develop for and is powerful enough to support all next gen consoles its normal that the system gets a ton of support from middleware developers, 3rd party developers and a plethora of services.

By the way most developers seem to be heavily focused on the PS4s ram configuration which is why im worried about the Wii Us bizarre ram configuration that involves the usage of 3 different types of ram and the fact that developers have to deal with slow DDR3 ram and only have 1GB available for games.
