Never even saw anything from direct X 11.2 that MS PR tied with Xb1.
Can't wait to see the buzzwords and "real time" demos of direct X 12.
Come E3 swap direct X with cloud (worked for titan fall LOL just look at the digital foundry tech peice), Spin some hype and let the fanboys astroturf.
Guys its GDC OMG SECRET SAUCE.
Direct X 12.1 comes out what NoV 2014
Next year just swap direct X with cloud, Rinse wash repeat.
Direct X 10 came out 2006, Xbox 360 launch in 2005.
At best this API ties in PC and Xb1 better and offers PC gamers with better cost vs performance. The Xbox "gains" will be a placebo at worst and at best A competing console will put a driver wrapper around the basic maths of the "performance gains"
Just spinning the narritive Mr. Pennelo got eggs in his eyes over.
The timing of these "new" Direct X annouments "suported by xb1" seem like damage control. Just as bf4 resolution bomb dropped "oh direct x 11.2" now just as titanfalls janky mess is bout to come out "oh look direct x 12"
My opinion is Xb1 is a solid console it has some great hardware solutions in it. I just hate the PR that comes along with it. enough so ill never buy xbox product ever again. But If certain games apeal to people, buy the console. Simple as that.
It was like that with My Ps2 and Xbox. At the time PS2 was the only place to play certain games but I was always on my xbox more. its personal prefrance that changes with the times, for diffrent people. as i said im out. You taste is you own.
I've bought enough products and services in my time to know that they will all talk up whatever they're offering like it's made of gold, and often don't live up to the hype(first Kinect being a prime example), so from that I've become a "wait and see" kind
But at the end of the day, I only care about the experience I get from the games and online service, and the Xbox brand has given me more good than bad.
