BioShock 2 Widescreen Patch Tomorrow

The next patch for BioShock 2 will be released in the wee hours tomorrow at 2:00 am PST, which is 5:00 am EST. The update will fix the field of view on widescreen monitors so 16:9 resolutions will no longer be letterboxed versions of 4:3 resolutions, also fixing an issue where holding the M1 button would not register in multiplayer play. Word on The Cult of Rapture is that 2K Games is also working on a larger patch: "Our next BioShock 2 PC Patch is due out tomorrow. You'll be able to download the patch starting at 2 AM PST on Tuesday, February 23rd. This patch is small because we focused on getting it out quickly to fix a couple high priority issues the community had, rather than roll them in to a larger patch that would take longer to reach you. We are working on a larger, more extensive patch now and as testing nears finalization I'll update you on that patch's download date."

But still, would the framerates be decent? I'm not defending their position of omitting the hardware, I'm just wondering if it would even be playable. My (totally unscientific) observation is that the games released in the last 12 months need the speed of the RV400 and G80 series chips to not be a slideshow and still look worth the money you shelled out for them.

I mean Fallout 3 "runs" on a 6800ultra, if by runs you mean a 16fps slideshow with the texture detail of a Flintstones cartoon

^D^
