Oh, sorry, too many acronyms?
An article at Next Generation has confirmation that MS will not be releasing DirectX 10 on XP, something they’d previously…well…at least indicated they would do. What does this mean? Well, for one thing, uptake of the DX10 features, so far best shown off in Crysis will be slower than it would be otherwise. The more troubling implication, from a consumer point of view at least, is the forced upgrade to Vista if you want to play any DX10 game like Crysis.
