you should be glad at least one company stepped up, and actually is helping developers. when nvidia is working with devs to optimize their code, add dx effects etc... they are helping all gamers.

You are partially right about Physx, that is nvidia tech, so they have a right to do what they want with it.

Just like ATI is working with some devs to add eyefinity tech.

now back to topic.


NZ, how many cars, tracks is in the game?
and could you post some shots?

Wait, back off topic for a sec...

Yes, but I bought an Nvidia card for PhysX. The box said PhysX was a feature of the product. Nowhere did it say - "PhysX only works with this card as the primary adaptor". I bought it for PhysX but couldn't use it for PhysX. Therein lies the problem. See I still bought their product, I paid $100 for it, but I couldn't use the features they advertised on the box. I don't think they see the bigger picture - whether or not it's my primary adaptor I'm a customer that just bought their product and I expect it to work.

I just don't think ATI has the money to engage developers. Its been a rough few years for them. On the other hand I don't think it's right that developers are taking handouts and give one company early access. I guess it's more of a moral question and I don't agree with the Mafia style backroom buyouts.

Also - eyefinity doesn't block any Nvidia features from working - its just adding something to the game for their hardware. Thats different.


Ok, I'm done. And to get this back on topic quickly.. I bought the game last night and played for awhile. Its fun but I hate the fact that you can be out front and someone can knock you out really easily. I get that it's part of the game and I can do it too - but I lost a race that I was winning and I was not happy about it lmao. I don't think this will consume too much of my time, its fun for a mindless time waster but its no DiRT2 or NFS Shift.
