    Because companies with good business acumen understand that selling a product that works with both nv and ati cards nets them more money.

    Using an universal physics engine, if well implemented, could boost the sales.


    I even bought an used 8800GTS 512 just to try out a few physx games, but I'd rather support a game with open standards than one with "evil" standards like PhysX.

    Unfortunately, not everyone thinks "long term". If the money will help get the game out the door they will take it.

    Any tech demos about Bullet Physics or DMM? The DMM is what I am eagerly waiting to come up.

    none yet.

    I keep complaining about this stuff, since apart from (buggy, nvidia only) PhysX, we're yet to see a hardware accelerated physics engine that we can use personally...

    ATI cards already support Bullet Physics, its up to the game developers to use it so everybody can benefit. NVIDIA blocking ATI cards from there version of PhysX was stupid. It seems to me NVIDIA just wants there own hardware to support it. Well, hopefully NV's PhysX goes the way of the dodo bird and here comes Bullet ;)
