SSX: Bringing a PS3 Game to Android (Presented by Intel Corp)

Alex Aptekar  |  Engineering Manager, Electronic Arts
Omar Rodriguez  |  Mobile Graphics Engineer, Intel Corp

Location: Room 2009, West Hall

Format: Sponsored Session
Track: Programming
Vault Recording: Not Recorded

This presentation looks at the challenges of porting SSX from the PS3 to Android. Beyond the obvious challenges of targeting a new OS and reworking the input system, we'll share lessons about optimizing content for mobile platforms. This process involved moving from deferred to immediate rendering, porting shaders to GLSL, updating memory management, etc.


Audience will leave the session with best known methods and deeper understanding of what it takes to port a AAA console title to mobile platforms. They will also learn about differences in hardware and software stack that allow for optimizations on Android.
