Hey Mark Rein, remember when your games used to have software rendering as an option?
Just because you have a popular game franchise and holdings in videocard companies, i.e. Nvidia, doesn't mean you get to dictate hardware requirements from this point forward. Most hardware-knowledgeable folks have realized there is no need for separate graphics capabilities from what a modern cpu should be able to render.
The same can be said for soundcards... completely unnecessary to have cutting edge sound processors instead of the basic just to make a friggin game run but how many games do you see that won't even run on an old SB card?
A smart business man would try to make his software fit as many hardware platforms as possible including people with fast new computers but with limited video options. It's basic Marketing 101... you limit your sales to 2% of the population and you are crippling your sales, duh.
The hardware companies should work for you and not vice versa. I hope you are able to pull your head out of your ass as I really like your companies software products.http://forum.ramanon.comThis comment was edited on Jul 13, 05:16.
