    I think Clear Sky looks pretty good in DX10 actualy.

    And that CoD4 map really shows off how good that modified engine really is. DX9 still had balls.

    No its had, becasue they decided to go on to DX10 already so DX9 is a had. Even though DX9 was around a long time i think they moved on to fast.

    I'm inclined to disagree, devil's advocate if you will. At the moment, DX10 is still in it's infancy and we haven't seen any native DX10 games that really make me go "fuggin' coal-boss!". Call of Duty 4 is proof to me that DX9 still has a lot of life left in it. You have a point that DX10 is here and now it's time for DX9 to move over, but it's the age old 'lowest common denominator' scenario - people are more likely to have DX9 compatible hardware so most devs will still cod for DX9 and 'bolt-on' DX10.

    Even that for me is irrelevant, my main point is that Call of Duty 4 has proven that we don't need DX10 and that fantastic looking games can still be made.

    Wish they would concentrate on making games last for more than ~4 hours rather on making them look so good :shadedshu, £30 quid for cod 4 and single player does not even last 4 hours, I know it's got multiplayer, but i'm not really a fan of cod 4 online, the single player game was ok, just not long enough imo that is.

    Urrr... to a degree, but if you read what I said, I was trying to stress that DX9 is still a worthy engine and as most people are more likely to have DX9 hardware so we'll see games made for that and DX10 bolted on instead of completely native DX10. You said DX9 has had it's time, I said it's still got life left in it. Not exactly agreeing is it?

    Let me point it out to ya ;)
    See? Enthusiasts and even most mainstream people are moving on to enjoy DX10 graphics now and so far every new game besides a select few are DX10 in some sort of way. Thats why i say had because we are deff moving into the DX10 scene. In the same sense though we are saying the same thing becasue DX9 still rox04d and our main argument there is an agreement.

    With that being said, i was gonna post some pretty Clear Sky screenshots but i cant cause it was lagging bad maxed out. Gotta figure out why and fix it before i can. And to do that i need time =(

    Hmmm... maybe your choice of word (had) threw me off. I don't believe DX9 has had it's time, not until it's completely defunct and we're seeing completely native DX10 code with DX9 bolted on.
