I remember that, but I keep reading these comments that it is cancelled. :/

But if it is coming then nice.

What I can say for sure is they would definitely love to do it. I guess we'll have to be patient and wait. Fingers crossed.

This is a console only site? I have a PC that is more then capable of running this along side of multiple consoles.

LOL Read the Interview and they say its running on DX9 but they will support DX11 fore sure. This is how the Console Versions will look. Ok Maybe with lower res. Textures. ;)

Great Comment Sath this Site is called Gamersyde not Consolesite

What are you talking about? They haven't shown any console footage yet, because they first want to finish the PC-version. The only thing we know for sure is that the console versions aren't cancelled.
You might be right about the dx 9, but tessalation isn't dx 11 exclusive. That was my mistake.

Tessellation is a DX11 exclusive if you don't count in OpenGL.
This might very well have dx11 effects, but I don't think that they are on in the pics.

Tesselation is absolutely not dx 11 exclusive. Radeon cards have had tessalators for years now (since the 9000-series). The way tesselation is handled on dx11 is different and more efficient. Dx11 tesselation however is not compatible with cards that don't support dx11.

The game will support tessellation, and all of the goodies of DX11. The fact that it isn't implemented in an Alpha build does NOT mean the game won't have it. Did you see the gameplay from gamecon? The game is in very rough stages right now.

You didnt understand what i mean. Clearly this is PC Footage running in DX9 it shows nearly the same Gfx like it would be on Consoles because they Render in special DX9 with DX10 Features.

I really don't get why gamersyde don't cover pc stuff. You know there is also gamers on pc no only on consoles.

Great pics, really looking foward for this.

btw. the link to the presentation last in the news item doesn't work - it just links to this page.
