    so now they want to fragment the PC gaming market as well? Three consoles and two PC platforms? how much cash do they think we have?

    I stopped buying PC games after Ghost Recon. They're just too much hassle for what they're worth. :thumbsdow

    If this is true then I will never buy another new PC game again...its ridiculous and the only reason for it is money. Plain and simple. Nvidia will spin the truth saying its to make the game more reliable and stable...make your own mind up on that one.

    So whats gonna happen if ATI bag an exclusive 'big' game? Do people then have to buy 2 £300 cards just to play £60 worth of games? (both of which will be probably be available on the Xbox anyway :rolleyes: )

    And then fork out to upgrade the card a year later for the next 'big' game.

    Well, yeah. I didn't even think about the constant upgrades tbh :rolleyes:

    Ok, so PC upgrades every 6 months with 2 £300+ graphics cards just to play games...


    Seem like a waste of money to anyone else?

    I can't see this happening, I doubt a software publisher would do this. They may produce an enhanced version, but making it graphics card specific would kill the market.
