More Advanced AI Coming To PS4, Courtesy of Xaitment

An AI software company known as Xaitment have announced that they will be backing the Playstation 4. Developers working on future games, have their permission to access their software and implement it in their games.This will hopefully help create smarter in game characters, that can make better and more rational decisions, that have. Hopefully AI will be alot more fun and challenging to play against.


Games as a standard will increase anyway due to the PS4′s mammoth specs, like its eight x86-64 cores, and the 8GB GDDR5 URAM (got it this time! ;) )  These resources allow game developers  to make alot smarter characters, with better behaviour when in groups and generally on their own.

When they said they will be backing the Playstation 4, Mike Walsh, CEO of Xaitment said:

We are naturally ecstatic that Sony Computer Entertainment has announced PlayStation 4. It represents such a massive leap in technology, which will have a huge effect on every aspect of a game, including AI, No longer will developers need to make hard decisions about whether to increase graphic fidelity or add in more AI. With PlayStation®4, games can now have outstanding graphics and more lifelike AI, which in turn will only drive up the realism of the gaming experience.


I’m so glad that a dedicated company will be supplying their software for it, one thing that can break games in my opinion can be the AI. With games like The Elder Scrolls, AI is a big feature and when a company screw it up it is really annoying, and also stealth games, they’re a bitch when AI is poor. Hopefully this will all change

This is obviously not the only awesome bit of tech that will be utilized on Sony’s new console, with things like Unreal Engine 4, FaceFX which is a piece of software for creating…. FX for Faces[image], and also Enlighten which is another dedicated company, but specialise in lighting effects. more here.

This is extremely good news because hopefully it will mean it will reduce the development time of games, but still be as awesome quality as the standard PS3 game.


Let’s hope we see AI dancing like this in games!

    Looks cool. Can’t wait to see more

    This is pretty sick! I’m excited to get one. Probably not day one. But day 1000 sounds good enough to me.

    Side note, this article is a little difficult to read. It appears to have not been peer reviewed and contains typos, poor grammar and a lot of little mistakes. No offense to the author, but can these sorts of things be double checked? I don’t want the quality of the work here to start slipping away, like…

    it’s not 64-bit (author said “x86-64″). it’s just x86 (32-bit). as far as I know, anyway.

      We’ve heard both, from Sony officials. It seems they don’t know either, so everybody’s confused. My understanding is that they meant x86 as the “x86″ family (which, to the untrained people – including people at Sony – means the family that includes both x86 – understand x86-32 – and x86-64), and then gave the precision that it is actually x86-64

        this is good news. I thought it was stupid to have an eight core 32-bit system, especially these days.


        1. Jhewk’s avatar

          We aren’t talking about computers here mate. eight core 32-bit may be plenty for a gaming console


          1. svenn’s avatar

            Please explain the difference of 32bit and 64bit cpu … I thought 32bit is the length of the pointer to RAM and therefor it had to be 64bit in order to fully use the RAM (otherwise pointers couldn’t reach more locations).

        four psx one chip two ps two emotion chips and a ps3 chip aith sum amd


        1. gunblade’s avatar

          (with) amd .i guessing 32 good for old school games


    2. Kefkiroth’s avatar

      Can’t 32-bit OSes only use 4GB of RAM? Because the PS4 has 8GB, it must be a 64-bit system.


      1. Cygni’s avatar

        Thats not completely true, they could use PAE to be able to use more ram.

    YEAH! I AGREE AND IDIOTS LIKE US WOULD BE BUSY AND BRAINWASHED PLAYING VIDEO GAMES ,WE WON’T SEE THE REAL WORLD AND WE WILL BE TURN INTO SLAVES SO BRAINLESS SERVANTS RULED BY THE ELITE . thats the only reason I enjoy my life at 1005 and long live the gaming world (eyes wide shut) where my joy takes place

      The real irony is the fact that more dictators and ruling elites came into power pandering to paranoid jackasses, promising to free them from their shackles and then caging them in far worse and more oppressive conditions.

        oh, took me a bit but i got ya.
        Like the whole Pres. Bush and the Orange Incedent.

      Whatever drug you were taking was a bad batch, so you should go back to your dealer and demand a refund.


  6. clicks’s avatar

    Sure do wish there was a video demoing the AI rather than a dancing robot in the article about the AI being implemented.

    And yes, I AM too lazy to look it up. Actually, not looking it up is hereby a matter of principle. Now my actions (or lack thereof) are fully justified.

    Is the pic related? Because if so, I wouldn’t mind having my own Bender. Except he’s like the worst best friend ever.

    One more thing to notice that for the first time Nvidia is supporting AMD GPU for the Physx as well in PS4. Look at this article

    So, Sony PS4 is getting every kind of support it needed to be an Amazing thing in future.

    It must be a 64bit cpu (x86-64), because a x86-32 CPU can only address 2^32bits. Thats around 4GB of Data which can be used by the system.
