Re: Direct X11 looks to be another failure(implementation wise)
DX11 is a lot faster in certain areas than DX9, so even if they don't add anything, there is a reason to add DX11 support. The problem is that the public expects a lot of eyecandy extras if a game says it will support DX11.
Also it helps if more gamers would throw out XP and upgrade. Even if Windows XP isn't the largest gaming OS anymore, there are still to many using it.
