We certainly lack exclusives but so do the PS3 and 360... everything is multiplatform now.

We get the best versions though

I doubt we're gonna see new consoles before 2012-2013 and that's when we'll start seeing DX11/12 games.

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.

DX11 is more marketing hype for graphics cards companies than anything right now... and fodder for fanboys on both sides of the GPU camp. They sling DX11 support arguments around like a groundbreaking PC exclusive that is built around DX11 could pop out of the wood work at any moment and render any card that doesn't support it useless.

At this point, these websites that review video cards shoudln't even bother listing DX11 support as a significant advantage or lack there of as a disadvantage.

I was playing AVP the other night in DX11 for the first time and I have to say, those shadows and AA effects do look pretty darn nice.

guys, I just saw an ad on a gaming site for PS4, no ****! So, don't worry about consoles not being there for a couple of years. The problem is this, console developers use what in workstation format to program their games, a pc. Enough irony for you yet? And their is the point that major gaming came from a computer with better looks while the inferior console of the 80's lacked. Now it's come 180 where the console determines the level of quality over the pc. Sorry console lovers, but the pc pioneered what you see today and always will as long as a pc workstation is programming your *ss! And I quote ace hunter from megaforce "it's all on the wheel, it all comes around!". Meaning the majority of people will smarten up and realize all the money they spent on something that can only be upgraded by a new machine, albeit more cost effective than constant pc upgrades. On the other hand, pc upgrades as you guys have said earlier last longer than a console's life span. And there are no firmware upgrades to improve a console's graphic capability as of yet, thank god for that! So, until a console that is made for hardware upgradability thus making it a true pc anyhow (since all major console use pc based parts), I wouldn't get too scared about dx 11 not working out. Right now the game publishers are finding the cheap way of doing things over the right way in choosing consoles 1st and going lower graphical multiplatform to "soothe" us pc gamers. The problem for at least xbox 360 to pc conversion is much simpler because MS has already made the software tools (I think it's XNA or something like that) to convert back and forth. Once the conversion is done, then they can add the graphical features necessary. Like I said, software publishers are being lazy and cheap *sses when the easy solution is right in front of them at least on the xbox and pc side of things. As for sony, it's not that much harder. Both xbox 360 and ps3 use dx 9 or 10 hardware for graphics that are made by pc hardware manufacturer's. Again that irony shows it head again. The cheap buggers again in software don't get the hint. Maybe if Nvidia and AMD stopped putting their labels on games (consoles too since physx is used for PS3) as sponsors they might just get the hint. Then again, it may just give the publishers an excuse to make the pc a productivity machine. What needs to happen is that the graphics and pc parts manufacturer's have to make clear that yes, we make console hardware for you, but our bread and butter comes from the pc industry.

Not to mention it was ALL console centric. Although, E3 doesn't truly 100% reflect what we game in the next 12 months it gives a pretty good idea. I have my doubts whether Crysis will any different from DX10-DX11 despite them wanting to push the visual further.

Crytek will push the visuals but there the only company which will push it but only use a small percentage of DX11, seeing how they said the requirements will be lower.


So what do you think? Direct X11 is another failure? We still haven't seen a game that's solely programmed in DX11. No one seem to give a s*** about it.
All I see here is more gamers crying about their hobby.

Gamers are pathetic.

at least our hobby has entertainment value to it. I don't want to imagine what a troll does for entertainment.

You crying about other people crying is much more logical I suppose.
