PlayStation Shading Language for PS4

Chris Ho  |  Engineer, SCEA
Richard Stenson  |  Graphics Software Engineer, SCEA R&D


Location: Offenbachsaal

Format: Lecture
Track: Programming
Vault Recording: Video


The PS4 is powered by a shading language that is familiar, but specific and extended for PS4. PSSL enables a degree of cross-compatibility with the PC, but extends far into specific PS4 hardware extensions that truly unlock features of the PS4 GPU in ways not seen before in this class of modern graphics hardware. This talk will feature the PC compatibility features of PSSL, as well as the hardware oriented extensions that will enable PS4 developers to 'Push the Boundaries of Play' on PS4.

Takeaway

The PlayStation Shading Language, or PSSL, for PS4 is very approachable and features all of the modern PC shader features a developer would expect. However, PSSL also pushes well beyond convention for PS4. Come see a glimpse into the present and future of GPU Shaders for PS4.

Intended Audience

The target audience is any game developer interested in the Graphics Shader Pipeline for PlayStation 4.
