    PhysX on the Wii?

    nVidia Pushes PhysX Onto Nintendo Wii - Gaming News - TrustedReviews

    interesting bit of news, but I'm not sure if we'll even see a PhysX enabled title on the Wii console...to me, PhysX has always seemed more of a marketing tool for NVIDIA, rather than an actual benefit for gamers, but enabling it on a console in which the gaming environment is more controlled may change that...

    Does PhysX run on the CPU or did they port it over to ATI graphics cards?

    How is it supposed to work on the PS3?

    As far as I know, nVidia bought out PhysX (formally a stand alone card) and integrated it into it's 8-series and higher video cards. How this could be integrated into the ATI-based Wii is unknown.

    PhysX at its core is just a Physics engine, like Havok. Its already been available for the 360/PC/Wii/PS3, but you had to pay to use it for commercial apps. Now they are making it free.

    This shouldn't even be news. PhysX should just be intergrated with everything it can go with.
