    Half-life 2 and Nvidia

    Half-Life 2 nVidia Exclusive
    Ritchey007 @ 11:15 pm - articles & editorials - 31 comments - new!
    The rumors are flying, and according to SPOnG.com the up and coming Half-Life 2 will have exclusive features for only nVidia graphics cards. On a bigger note, all Electronic Arts games will be tailored to one manufacturer. I was planning on buying an ATI this summer, but that is now on hold. I guess we will just have to wait for E3 Expo to get some answers.

    I don't believe a word of it. This reminds me of when Steve Jobs
    made a public announcement that the new macs will have exclusivity to the Nvidia GPU graphic cards a few years ago, but instead was available to the open market.

    Bogus IMO - I hope.

    These companies talk alot of stuff but almost 80% of the time it's bs. If you want you an Ati card, get you one.

    could you provide me with a link please

    also, incase you all don't know: http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=IO_20030409_7420

    this is very very bad, developers and publishers should NOT be partnering up with IHV's in this manner

    NVIDIA and EA will also discuss opportunities to implement NVIDIA-specific features and special effects in several upcoming EA titles such as Madden NFL Football 2004 and others for the PC platform.
    this is very very bad for the pc gaming platform

    on a similar note, ATI is now having to do the same thing: http://mirror.ati.com/shopati/promot...venshield.html

    there have been numerous huge threads on message boards about all of this
