meh. can't be bothered. EA has my heart this year with the releases.
Maybe those cards are "old" news but they still are far more powerfull than 99% of GPU in the world, people keep asking for games to only be playable with a GTX 580 but complain when our community is shrinking each year, most sane people don't want to upgrade their GPU all the time, the 4870 was roughly the price of a 360 or PS3 in 2008 so why would you need to buy another high end GPU again for games that console players can play on their consoles purchased in 2005 without having to upgrade anything.

agreed - my 4870x2 can play pretty much any game at max settings at 1080p no problem.

The only reason Im upgrading to the GTX590 is because the 4870x2 is broken.

I'm just jumping on the bandwagon here and saying that "Bulletstorm Will Make Your Computer Weep" is a ridiculous statement for a DX9 game.

DX11 came out 1.5 years ago, DX10 has been around for what, 4 years? It's 2011 now, at this point I see DX9 as strictly for console ports or casual/indie games. Then again, 90% of games are console ports with low res textures, no recoil and a simplified giant console sized UI, so I wouldn't expect anything to change.

I hear you, can't find any drivers which works after 10.4a for mine, but everytime I say that some people will say it's just user error or that it's an "old card" and I should just upgrade anyway...

99% of PC exclusives are DX9 only, the only way DX 11 could really change anything is if devellopers started to devellop DX 11 only games, which would exclude everyone without a top end GPU which is obviously bad business and shouldn't happen.

Played the demo on PS3 like 15 times and i usually hate FPS with a stick, but this was just that good!

EDIT: if nothing else, guys, it comes out exactly a month before Crysis 2 so between this and Killzone 3 (to all you PS3 people) were bound to atleast have some kinda warm up grounds!

You have no clue dude.

People like YOU are the reason PC gaming is dying. Instead of bending over and taking whatever Epic is going to shove our way, we as PC gamers are screaming "Quit with the crappy ports! Focus on making PC games awesome again!".

Once you stop feeding the problem, the problem stops. The reason it hasn't stopped is because everybody on the internet is a poser, and will claim to not support a product but then go right out and buy it *cough*MW2*cough*.
