Naty Hoffman, Activision Inc. "State of the Art in Game Console Graphics"

Friday 23rd April 2009, 2-3pm (BST) Room 1.10, Kilburn Building The 
University of Manchester

The lion's share of game graphics R&D is targeted to consoles, where 
graphically intensive games sell the most copies. Although the hardware 
has not changed in the last five years, gamers still expect graphics to 
continually improve. Meeting this expectation requires efficient use of 
hardware resources and careful selection of graphics algorithms and 
techniques. This talk will describe the current state of the art, and go 
over the graphics techniques that have proven most useful in console 
game development.
