Sure its dead. Most games just use dx9 anyways with a few gaining dx11 every once in a while.

lol that's what I was thinking. Games will utilize the next dx when the new consoles come out.

DirectX needs to die...

And be left with only OpenGL, No thanks

or just give developers direct access to the hardware like many are requesting

That would be a better solution, But still I am happy to have it around until that time comes, I just wish the upgrade in features were to come in bigger leaps

If it dies then consoles die with it. in fact dx9 is 360 all day long. enjoy the next gen.

Not really, Playstation is OpenGL I am fairly sure. If it were to happen consoles would likely just use OpenGL. That said, there is no reason to kill off DirectX

Wasn't it dead the day its release?Dx10 was just a mockery.Dx9 was the real deal and now dx11 seems to be that way.

Keep pushing DX11 I say.
The differences when implemented properly are huge.
My only concern is how PC games get the shaft in most cases when its a multi-platform game and developers make the game with the PS3/Xbox360 in mind first and leave out DX11 or its OpenGl equivalent features at the door so not to make the console versions look pathetic.
