Ageia PhysX - required!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
PhysX card required to unlock level in GRAW2. Pretty sneaky, sis... .

Quote:
Ageia tells me all the physics in the game were created using its PhysX SDK, but only one level (dubbed Ageia Island, appropriately enough) requires a PhysX card—you can’t unlock the level without it. Could this be just a marketing ploy? I guess it’s possible, but I’ve never seen such detailed physics in a game.
Story here.

Ahaha, new way to make money uh? I'm sure by tweaking the game ini or txt files, you can unlock it.

Its the same crap with cell factor and its a gimmick, as far as I know when cell factor was actually released there was no way to get it to work on the 8800s physics processor, however in the beta you could force it the the 8800 and it still ran smoothly.

PhysX is a gimmick and they "require" the card for some levels when it isn't required, they will be out of business soon anyway since no one buys them.
