Microsoft accounts for about 95 percent of the desktop PC market. Arguably, two important games platforms exist, the PS2 and Windows, and Java isn’t available on the PlayStation. This problem has long been recognized by Sun. Back at the JavaOne conference in 2001, Sony and Sun announced their intention to port the JVM to the PS2. Nothing has been released, but there are persistent rumors about a JVM on the PlayStation 3, earmarked to appear in 2006. In the future, Java may have a better chance of acceptance into the closed world of console makers because of two trends: consoles mutating into home media devices and the meteoric rise of online gaming.

A lower bound is dictated by the human eye and the critical flicker frequency (CFF), which is the rate at which a flickering light appears to be continuous. This occurs somewhere between 10 and 50 Hz, depending on the intensity of the light (translating into 10 to 50 FPS). For larger images, the position of the user relative to the image affects the perceived flicker, as well as the color contrasts and amount of detail in the picture. Movies are shown at 24 FPS, but this number is somewhat misleading since each frame is projected onto the screen twice (or perhaps three times) by the rapid opening and closing of the projector’s shutter.

The first is that sleep( ) causes the animation thread to stop executing, which frees up the CPU for other tasks, such as garbage collection by the JVM. Without a period of sleep, the GamePanel thread could hog all the CPU time. However, the 20-ms sleep time is somewhat excessive, especially when the loop is executing 50 or 100 times per second. The second reason for the sleep( ) call is to give the preceding repaint( ) time to be processed. The call to repaint( ) places a repaint request in the JVM’s event queue and then returns.
