you come back to the problem of having to support both those that have a PPU and those that don't, and physics isn't really like rendering, you can't really have the equivalent of LOD,

Actually you can. Things like cloth simulation, hair, grass, leaves etc, can all be switched on and off (An immediate example that springs to mind is EQ@, where you can turn cloth simulation on and off). When its off it doesent really look that different too normal games, but with it on it enhances the game.

The thing is running proper physics effects on the game isnt really noticable until you then remove it, its a natural progression, and its only when you go back to older games that you see what its like without being able to interact with the environment and without being able to watch it naturally.

Watching that fluid demo and the other two was pretty impressive, its a shame they dont link them together, to show the plane crashing in, hitting the ball, watching it knock over the crane and then smashing the water thing open. imagine being on the ground shooting at baddies and then that happens, youve only got a few seconds to get to the door, but damn it would be cool.

Heres the thing, if it would improve the game play, via more natural hair, cloth etc then ill buy one.

MMX you say isnt used, yet all chips now support it, so even though at the time of introduction there wasent any mass surge toward it, im pretty sure most titles now use it, you may not notice it, but then its just one more thing that layers onto the game, allowing us to play near real games as opposed to Nada 3.

just my 0.02 cents.

Seriously guys lighten up on the negativity.

Diablo & Diablo 2 for the DS, it makes sense Blizzard!
