Most developers start with Gnmx, which wraps around Gnm, which in turn manages the more esoteric GPU details.
On the other hand, communities are new hubs that can be formed around shared interests like games, activities, or play styles.
There also exist other smaller social features on PS4, such as the ability to message a friend with a request to watch their gameplay live.
This can be a familiar way to work if the developers are used to platforms like Direct3D 11.
Another key area of the game is its programmable pixel shaders.
PS4 owners are able to capture or livestream the gameplay with a simple button touch.
They can record up to 60 minutes of their latest gaming exploits with a quick press of the Share button on the controller.
This dynamic menu can alter itself so that there's as little time as possible between the users placing a game in the disc drive and the actual gameplay beginning.
Play Station 4's user interface attempts simplicity as a priority.
The [What's New] feature, which allows users to check out their friends' latest activities via a landing page full of their pictures, trophies and other recent events, is an easy way to find out what friends have been up to.
