Re: Who's going to get suckered into the hype this time?
A lot depended on the failure of Vista. Due to bad press and whatever, it didn't become really popular. If it had been, we'd seen many more DX10 games.
Seeing how Windows 7 now is the opposite, with a lot of praise, if many gamers go for the upgrade I think DX11 might become quite popular. It does have some good features too.
