For all those that said that DX10 isn't on the 360, and those that said it does the same but it isn't called DX10 but an own form of API control of the great 360 GPU:

"In Gears of War on Xbox 360, we implemented multisampling using the platform's extended MSAA features. On PC, the solution is to support multisampling only on DirectX 10."

There you have it. It may not be called DX10 fixed, but the own API control does things you can ony do with DX10. Thus, the 360 could maybe even go further in exploring stuff you find in DX10 or might not even be in DX10

Well you obviously not, but that's because you are probably a PS3 owner. Which makes me think, would it use multisampling? Because Epic speaks about 360 and PC using it...

It's just interesting, what ever way you try to downplay it. It's that huge, because those lying Sony droids like DJ/LovehateTRAGEDY always are claiming the 360 can't do more then DX9, now you see it does. It's only not called DX10, but it does the same on many parts, if not more then that

the only thing I would hear people saying was that the 360 doesn't have DX10...and you know, it doesn't...It has features built it its OWN OS that may mimic how DX10 embraces stronger hardware...but that doesn't mean it has DX10...I am sure you are right that most idiots think that means the 360 can't do anything close to DX10 enabled pc's, graphics wise...but the fact of the matter is that the OS in the 360 is not running games anything like DX10 enabled Vista does...thats what intelligent people meant by the statement...

I have been saying it for a while...the 360 and ps3 will be able to do things that DX9 only pc's won't...whether its more advanced physics...or the multisampling mentioned in this interview...or whatever else...where they fall short on the full tilt DX10 machines is unknown still...

all DX10 does is "undoes" the bottle-neck that was occuring with DX9 and more advanced cards...the differences between DX10 and 9 are marginal in code, but allow the use of much more advanced hardware...which is why the jump in visuals is so drastic...even though most of the differences as far as Windows is concerned is not that great...

and off that topic...the last statement in that article claimed that UT3 will run on lowend DX9 cards? I have a laptop with the GMA 950 disaster...but do have a dual core processor...According to him it may run UT3? ha...that would be funny...

EDIT: Mart you added that ending stuff that I just read...so never mind the whole beginning...I own a ps3, and never thought that the 360 couldn't do more than DX9...I was just tired of people saying "it has DX10 'cause MS made it fegz!"...thats all

I just logged on to one of my other accounts to find that Virtual gamer tried to ban my umbagumba account for exposing him for the idiot he is, and this further proves his retardedness. How FN pathetic do you have to be to try to ban somone because your proven to be retarded? virtual gamer is a b!tch. You will now get it a lot worse.

URT 3 is going to be sooooooooooo kick @ss. I just hope Epic does a good job on the PS3 version so we do not have PS3 fans belly aching about how lazy they are. o_O

I would also like to get a party system for mach making.

nobizlikesnowbiz3792d ago

A party system in GOW would have been dank, especially after I figured Halo 2 would have set the standard. It's ridiculously hard to play games with friends sometimes on Gears. So they better fix it in UT3, because I'm probably buying it.

SKUD3792d ago

This guy just doesn't quit (TheMART). First one to diss on the PS3. I hope one day you find peace my friend.

CrazzyMan3792d ago

hmm, interesting how they will make ut3 run good on PS3. =)

anyway, they already showed UT3 running on PS3 in GDC07, that means, they already done engine, and only some customizations left. :)
