Physics to die for: Ageia turns up the heat!
Ageia knows a thing or two about physics. Since 2002, they've been doing things with it that would make your head spin. Thanks to the PhysX engine, PS3 owners can look upon this drool-inducing video with high expectations, because these very goods will be coming to us in November. The trailer you can download is for CellFactor, which is a PC game powered by the same physics engine that the PlayStation 3 will be taking advantage of.
It really is amazing. Not just in terms of what you'd expect from a normal engine (because this is anything but normal), but the gameplay itself utilizes it like no other. Just take a look at those gravity grenades! Ragdoll physics and vehicular manipulation are, of course, represented in astonishing quality. Check it out: the download weighs in at about 150 MB.
PS3 fans have another reason to hold off on getting a life just yet.
