    Even as a nvidia card owner I completely disagree with this move, they should have released now and patched later. Ah well, perhaps now isn't the best time to release games anyway, too much to play :D

    You aren't missing out on much, just hours spent running into and looking at walls.

    From the looks of the trailer it really adds to immersion of the game instead of being a total gimmick.

    Couldn't agree more. There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to delay the entire game for months for what is essentially a patch for a select bunch of hardware!

    Still, this is tempting me towards a GTX 280 rather than a 4870X2 when I upgrade my PC at the end of the month...

    It's a game for burglars,suicidal and paranoid people, they always run away (for something) and with M.E. they can get even more paranoid and jump from large buildings and drop dead...

    Personally I like to face people/aliens/monsters and shoot them in the head/tentacle/other parts or blow them or the whole place up with big guns and other devices of mass destruction. I would feel completely helpless without any kind of weapon available in M.E.

    :D

    I mean, im excited to see real time rips and tears, wind ect. the wind effect was really nice in grid, but seriously what the heck, my xbox 360 died on me so i get stuck waiting that much longer, i guess i'll be waiting. might do the ps3 version, since seems kinda like it'll be better on console free running games seem to play better on that personally. it'll be funny to see how my 9600 gso will hold up on this game.

    HURRY UP EA/DICE!! on second note, take your time and a lot of it, i'd hate to see a good game get rushed out and ruined with bad gimmicky physics.

    Addendum: Mirrors Edge PC will be available in January, not March.

    One month is fine :)

    I'd suggest more cheesecake in your diet.

    Yeah ok, its a shame the PC version is delayed (although this happening more and more these days), but on the whole I think this is good news. For once they are paying more attention to the PC and putting some effort into the port.

    Y'know its kinda funny in a way. Usually EA just release games no where near complete THEN patch them. However, now they've got a new feature to add they're gonna delay until it finished. EA, I dont know... :rolleyes:

    there are sooo many other physics engines out there that are software base and do a better job then PhysX they should use the alternatives instead so that there is less of an issue because it seems like anytime a company has to deal with nVidia whether its hardware or software based there is always delays and headaches ~_~
