EA and Take-Two Take PhysX; Mirror's Edge Comparison

AnandTech has a video of Mirror's Edge side-by-side with the PhysX-enhanced version of the game, showing the extra effects available to owners of NVIDIA accelerators or sufficiently powerful systems, saying: "The effects in there can be simulated on either a CPU or an NVIDIA GPU. The advantage to the GPU is performance and NVIDIA indicates that even an Intel Core i7 processor will have a tough time without GPU support" (thanks Mike Martinez). On a related note, EA, Take-Two lift Nvidia physics to next level announces Electronic Arts and Take-Two Interactive have licensed its PhysX technology as a development platform.

Why did the developers even bother adding support for this technology? Its still trying to become mainstream.

I'm pretty sure stuff doesn't just magically become mainstream, and developers might have to support it before it is.
