Intel Havok Physics system ported to Android: Video demo on the Xperia Play

As Qualcomm told me during Mobile World Congress, Sony Ericsson is the only OEM who bothered to use the latest Snapdragon and Adreno drivers on its devices and the video after the break just shows why they did this. The company is really serious about gaming on Android and unfortunately seems to be the only Android OEM in this case (Sure there’s NVIDIA and its Tegra Zone marketplace but I’m fairly sure that they don’t really care about the platform. All that matters to them is that their SoC is being bought by OEMs). THe video after the break will show you Intel’s Havok physics engine / solver porting on Android and running on the Xperia Play’s MSM8255 with Adreno 205 GPU:

Sony Ericsson and Havok have announced the availability of Havok’s product suite to Android developers, optimized for the Sony Ericsson’s revolutionary Xperia™ PLAY. Havok reigns as the preferred tools and interactive software partner to the world’s best developers. As part of its overall support for the Android platform, Havok has a build of its product line optimised for the Xperia™ PLAY that is ready for licensing by Android developers.
