Post Old Dog, Old Tricks ' MS Locks DirectX 11.1 To Win 8



It's been a while since Microsoft pulled the ol' 'oh no, this new version of DirectX couldn't possibly work on earlier versions of Windows' scamgasm, but as the relatively friendly age of Windows 7 is overshadowed by the dawning of the firm's desperate desire to make Windows 8 a cross-platform goliath/software shop, an old habit has returned. The next version of DirectX might be a purely iterative one, but if you ever look a game that requires DirectX 11.1 you'll be looking at a game that won't run on Windows 7 or earlier.
