Hi.
Ok, so im studying Java to make games, and i got a really nice book now.

So , the book is a little old but, it came up with two things

Java in PS2 ~~ PS3
Is nowadays PS2/PS3 able to run Java or somehow like that ?

and

Java (versus) C++
It showed that java can be faster than C++, but that was about that time. How is it now?
Is now , java equally faster as C++ or it doesnt matter
?


Thanks for your answers

    PS2 - no. PS3 has a bluray player on board and all bluray kit has embedded Java, but you wouldn't use Java to build a game.

    About performance metrics: The runtime is very good at optimizing, but it really depends on the code how successful it is. C++ will generally still produce better performing code, but the question is more if you'll notice that. There is more to gain by optimizing the environment - hardware, network performance, etc.
