Yup, a lot of recent and upcoming games use the bloom effect, it's part of DX9 and even the P.O.S. Xbox can do it. A lot of developers have used it badly though (Deus Ex 2, Thief 3). FSW I felt used it decently, and (start hidden secret breaking my disclosure agreement with Sony stuff, SO DON'T ANYONE POST THIS ANYWHERE ELSE) SWG:JTL just put an awesome bloom effect in the beta! It's around bright stellar objects, lightning in the nebulas, and hyperspace. It's not in the ground game yet, don't know if it will ever be. Anyway, the first time I hyperspaced into a nebula-rich area with bloom and animated 3D electrical discharges I was really impressed. END SUPER SECRET TEXT.
Don't make me regret trusting you all...I'll spam you mercilessly!
