That makes no sense. Why would DirectX be "dumbed down" for the consoles? The 360 runs DX9. DX10 and DX11 aren't being dumbed down for the sake of the DX9 implementation on the 360.

It makes sense to me, m$ directs the development of games based on console abilities and this is done with foresight years ahead of time. While it's true Currently only PCs can use dx 10+, imo the point is m$ is directing the future of dx not in the best interest of PC gaming but for FUTURE plans of the console industry development.

m$ only says they care about PC gaming when they profit from saying it, like when a new OS is released. They have been behind the scenes for 10 years doing exactly opposite in reality.

Despite what m$ Talking Points are atm, they STILL want to dominate the gaming market through consoles. Atm, there's really one thing keeping m$ from overthrowing PC development again for another 5 years (well really two) but the major one is MMOG market. If they break into that market, there will be a major funding shift to consoles again and in this economy it could devastated the PC market.

I personally don't believe m$'s intentions are speculation, at all.
