A shame that probably only will be in PC exclusives, since consoles are weak. And all games that's on multiple platforms, are 99% ports.

Damn you consoles. DAMN YOU.

@Jevrio:

Nope. Currently they can render a 600x400 (I don't remember correctly, but it's something around these numbers) screen at 20fps with one single core and no hardware acceleration, and they claim to have only started the optimization process.

This means any computer bought after the year 2000 will be able to run their technology at full speed.

But for all I know, they're full of -blam!- until they demonstrate their tech on a non-workstation computer.

 

EDIT: Notch posted his opinion on the video. I pretty much agree, but hell - anything can happen these days...

If it was real I'd imagine he'd have better microphone work... I heard a bunch of pops in his video, making me think he talked 2 millimeters away from his mic, without a filter, in an attempt to make sure he's loud enough to hear himself speak.

If it is real, hoorah! If it's fake, epic troll.

@Pulse Cloud: Once they prove that, I will start believing. Not a nanosecond before. Let's hope we got games with this (normal games, not just to show how great it is), within 20 years. But since most people these days get boners over good graphics, and games might sell better with good grapihcs, it jusg might happen.

@Catch Grave: Are you being purposely retarded or am I not understanding what you're trying to say?
