This dude is on a roll. With his comments yesterday that PC are not gaming machines and now this ? Wonder how the PC community will take this.

Hey EPIC, how about you show us what you working on instead of spewing BS ? huh ? what'dya say ?

Fully programmable shaders in the form of software would be crazy!! In the long run it would be sweet as hell. But right now it would really be a nightmare to the gaming industry.

I don't see hardware acceleration for shaders falling by the wayside anytime soon.

Yet another inflammatory comment from a staff member at Epic.

the thing is he's absolutly right about what he said.

DX10 is yet to deliver on the pc and the current gen consoles allready make up for it especially the next wave of ps3 games in 09 couse of the opengl structure. But ms will put DX11 in the next box that im pretty sure about.

opengl is still the best api when you want flexibility

He knows infinitely more than we do about the subject. So i'll take his word for it
