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.

Direct X / OpenGL specifics are usually abstracted away on cross platform games.

Anyway OpenGL and Direct X are very different things. OpenGL is a specification for an API, Direct X is an API.
