Well, this is good news for physics in games. Finally we'll get a wider implementation of this.
I'm not sure this helps us much. If nVidia is the only company with physics built in then developers still can't make proper use of physics. The only benefit will be if nVidia licences the technology to ATi and they both implement it. Also, this will bump up the price of graphics cards and give them more to render... that means we'd see a move backwards in terms of performance but with the addition of more complex physics.
NEway, this has got to be better than the company going broke and the technology never being widely used. I just hope we'll see results from this within 6 months... I don't want to be waiting around years for this.
