What a difference Nvidia's PhysX makes!

So I came across this article about Nvidia's PhysX and some side-by-side pictures of gameplay with PhysX on and off. There's also a video. Currently I'm using an ATI card, but I think my next card will be Nvidia.

The Next Xbox to be revealed in 2012...

When will Microsoft release a new Xbox? IGN is citing a source from which claims the details for the next Xbox will be revealed at E3 2012. (Of course this is assuming the world does not end first)

A "high-ranking industry source at Crytek" told the website that while specifications for the next console have not been finalized, Crytek is using Microsoft's DirectX 11 for next-gen development. The source says Microsoft will announce the new Xbox in the next year, likely at E3 2012.

"Crytek believes that Microsoft will announce and launch its new machine ahead of rival Sony, though the developer is also investing resources into next-generation PlayStation development."

If this is true, and all things go as planned we can expect Sony to release the Playstation 4 soon after Microsoft. Another possibility...

Halo 4 on Xbox 360 or Xbox 720?

It was announced for Fall of 2012 during Microsoft's E3 2011 Press Conference. Sure the date may change but what I'm more concerned about is whether or not it will launch with a new console. If you haven't seen the teaser trailer see my other blog post here

 I had really hoped that Microsoft would hold off on another Halo game and set it to release with a new console on launch day. Perhaps Microsoft is planning on releasing a new console, afterall Fall of 2012 is still a long ways away (not to mention eerily close to the end of the world). Since they didn't specifically state that it would be on Xbox 360 there is a chance that it will launch with a new console (Xbox 720 or whatever they plan to call it). I think they need to stop desecrating the Halo series by continuing to release games on outdated technology (if you don't understand this, play games on a PC, or check out my Witcher 2 videos, you will be amazed if you are only a console gamer). We are long overdue for a console, wouldn't you agree?

****If you have any thoughts please leave them in the comments section below I really want to hear what people have to say about this

Tomb Raider: Turning Point Trailer [1080p HD]

This is the trailer for the new Tomb Raider game. It's pre-rendered so don't expect it to look like that in-game. Although the trailer is good, I wish we could see what the in-game graphics will be like. We know for fact that for Xbox 360 & PS3 they will look like crap because those consoles are completely outdated. The last Tomb Raider game, Underworld, had some great photo realistic environments. I think I have another blog post about photo-realism in games. (I'll add a link here later) Of course many years have passed since the last game came out and so you would expect the graphics to improve and really push PC's (forget about consoles, even counterstrike would push the available consoles we have now). I don't have my hopes up though, I think in-game footage will be the usual plasticy-looking Lara Croft we've come to know and love.

****I tried putting it on my channel but the company blocked it, it's funny though...they didn't block IGN's video on their youtube channel of the same video. So copyrights only apply to us, if IGN sucks your dick then they get to display your material without copyright issues. =)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution LEAKED!

I've been wanting to play this game since I heard about it. The pre-build beta has been leaked, you can find it in the usual places. My comments are that I'm glad it's the prebuild and not the final game. Hopefully the final build will actually have textures on things in the environment. Some other important things to note:

1. I saw a DirectX 11 option!
2. Full support for Xbox 360 controller for windows
3. Interesting story, but opening is similar to Mass Effect.
4. You can choose dialog but I'm not sure it makes any difference to the story.
5. There's a hot chick in there that has a thing for you ;)you mechanical stud you...
