Age of Conan DX10 Delay

Voodoo Extreme notes that a Funcom press release about this week's launch of Age of Conan contains a less-than-prominent note that the DirectX 10 edition of the MMORPG will be delayed, which is apparently great news for DirectX 10 fans according to the spin:

As Microsoft’s DirectX 10 is undoubtedly the future of PC gaming, Funcom has decided to ship only the DirectX 9 version at launch, giving the team more time to focus on building a DirectX 10 version worthy of Microsoft’s great vision for the future of PC gaming. This postponement will let Funcom include even more features in the DirectX 10 version of Age of Conan than originally planned.

The DirectX 10 version will be premiered at the German Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany, August 20 – 24, 2008. A special preview showing off the advanced graphics made possible by DirectX 10 technology will be unveiled this summer at nVidia’s NVISION event in San Jose, California, August 25 – 27, 2008.

You can get BR burners for the PC for under $200 $300, last I checked...

Yeah, definitely getting close to something worth buying. newegg.com had one for $299.

Right now they're still pretty slow for burning and the higher priced ones are a bit faster. $15, yikes (I'm seeing some for $30 each), I didn't look at the BR media pricing. Those could be some expensive coasters.
