I like how they begin their apology by blaming someone, way to go!

There is nothing here other than CD not quality testing enougha t all.

There is no Gaming Evolved or Nvidia conspiracy to gimp other hardware.

So when does Crystal Dynamics apologize for the visual FX reportedly not appearing properly in fullscreen mode on either brand of card?

I just trust NVidia on this, because as others have pointed out, the GTX580 should have 50% more compute performance than the GTX680, but it performance worse than a GTX660Ti, which isn't right.

Now, NVidia are claiming they only received final game code a week ago, which is totally insufficient time to optimise drivers. They're also claiming that Crystal Dynamics need to optimise the game code in order to resolve the issues. Therefore, this would point to improper QA testing done by Crystal Dynamics. It would appear they've only tested on AMD cards and done very insufficient testing on NVidia cards.

HOLY ****
I finished the game last night, and within the 10+ hours it took, I swear I thought the game looked a bit weird - the sun never "shone" and when I was hurt badly there was no blood on the screen to quickly indicate it, only black and white. I feel like I missed part of the game's beauty - big time.

ok....In all seriousness. Does anyone have any details on what the developers need to patch for NVIDIA? Is there any details on any of this. Not that I'm not buying NVIDIA's statement, but anyone could just pass the buck in this situation. Why can't we have details so we understand where the actual underlying issue is?

I agree a week is not enough, but what we seem to disagree on is ''why just a week?'' you think that it's because CD didn't do enough testing, I think that it's because AMD did the shady thing and made sure that the game ran worse on nvidia hardware on launch.

What a horrible job of PR. I guess they didn't completely say it wasn't their fault but they were trying to offload as much blame as possible on to the developers.

I don't care if it was all the developers' fault. Is a, "We are sorry. We are working on it." been so hard? My gosh, if I called out all the shoddy work by others that delayed my work or affected the quality of it...I'd probably be fired. You just do the best you can and always pad your estimates.

Nah, I have way more faith in AMD than to think that.
