Games Pretty cool stuff: the PlayStation 4 apparently runs on a version of FreeBSD 9.0 modified by Sony and renamed to 'Orbis OS'. Second generation developer kits use GNU GRUB to boot, and allow you to boot into a graphical or a console mode. Not much else is known at this point, but it's a fun bit of information, and perhaps a boon to homebrew developer and hackers.

True. They announced only D11 (directx 11) support. The GPU can have support for both, as most does, but as this is a custom, made only for the PS4, it is likely it won't have, as is not needed and will only "waste space".
