From news reports, it's pretty clear that EA wanted E3 dead
cuz it offered small companies one stop shopping exposure.
can't allow that to happen!
For less than $5,000, including travel, hotels, and booth construction, we were able to meet with and interact with a worldwide audience for three days. No hotel meeting or specialty conference will ever be able to replicate that kind of exposure for that little price. It's the small developers that are hurt most from this, not the big publishers who have PR bugets several orders of magnitude greater than our entire yearly operation budget.

Level design would be a big piece of this game working, I hope the standard is high.

3 options:
  • hand reduction surgery
  • gaming gloves
  • a docking box that the ds fits into, whoich would increase the size of the gripping surface

is able to produce up to 100 dots per second
hm, speed it up a tad and you could rotate a 3 x 3 x 3 cube at 4 fps (108 dots). wonder if they can change intensity or color of the plasma.

Everyone in the industry now sees hardware physics as something that will be necessary for PC gaming.
eh??? Everyone???
Maybe he meant to say "No one you know in the industry".

All the reviews and tests of the several actual games that use it say the same thing - there's no noticeable improvement. PhysX seems to be running into what Carmack mentioned in his quakecon keynote - that we've already hit several walls of what can be done graphicaly, that adding .001% performance just isn't significant. Too bad PhysX didn't come out 10-15 years ago when it would have made a difference.

Besides the good performance of next-gen consoles and their huge mass market sales, the other reasons he mentioned that many developers are jumping on consoles first are:

- good tools are readily available vs. the past
- the console is a Dedicated Box, you don't have to program around/thru DirectX and the giant bloat of Windows (or any OS for that matter) system crap trying to strangle you every clock cycle.

That second one becomes REALLY obvious the first time you code for a console. It's way more fun.

am I the only person not interested in this PhysX business, at any price?
no, J. Carmack is ignoring it too afaik.

edit: historical perspective, Pearl Harbor was the 9/11 of it's day in terms of national terror and horror. So, 50 years from now we'll be buying our consumer electronics, cars, and one would assume games like "Sim Flight: 9/11 Knockdown!!!" from Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Lebanon - the so-called terrorist nations of today.

You guys occupying body bags, keep up the good work.
Future profits (for someone else) depend on it.

that logic sounds like the defenders of the films who argued...
try to look past the fact that they're legos the character of Jar Jar , and maybe -- just maybe -- you might be able to enjoy the game fine films underneath.

because every winning hand funnels money directly into the hands of al Qaeda terrorists!

and ( just coincidently of course! ) competes with the "legal" multi-billion dollar racketeering operations run in Las Vegas, Reno, Atlantic City and elsewhere.

the good stuff is after he sits down if you wanna fast forward a bit.

Fascinating comments as usual, particularly his opinion that we've already reached the point of negligible return in several areas of graphics, including framerate and resolution - they're already higher than people can see any difference.

so...
some companies didn't want to goto The big single E3 show because it was expensive to exhibit and travel and wasted time spent making a demo...

so now, instead of just ONE show, they'll waste time and money being interrupted a DOZEN times throughout the year journeying to far flung shows like Leipzig just to accomplish the same thing...

Net Time and Money Saved: Zero.
Yeah, i get it now, makes perfect sense to me.

These must be the same guys who dream up the critical path milestones on your project development chart.
