DirectX 11.1 is exclusive to the divisive Windows 8 operating system, Microsoft has confirmed.

“there is no plan for DirectX 11.1 to be made available on Windows 7”.

 

Are they nuts?

They did this with the last Direct X as well, they want to push us onto their dream cloud computing unified platform shit, which technology wise is pretty cool, but I want to play on my PC thank you MS.

Valve make SteamOS already..

Currently playing - FF14ARR
Previous games - SWG, World of Warcraft, ShadowBane, Warhammer, Age of Conan, Darkfall, Planetside Asheron's Call, Everquest, Everquest 2, Too many.

This is TOTAL BS. They want to support win8 that failed so badly, that they will completely abandon the very good win7... Look, win8 is NOT A TABLET. Not only that, it is a very inconvenient interface that is not streamlined for multi-tasking at all, with plenty of obsticals to getting to things you want to get done.

Now what happens when video games come out that don't support the latest Win7 DirectX?? Even if you have a beast of a machine that is a million times better than Windows 8, you won't be able to play them!

This is horrible. I hate Microsoft now. I'm switching to linux.

WIn 8 will never be as good as WIN 7. Sooner or later they will realise this.

I'm on Windows 8 and while the start menu takes some getting used to I'm rather enjoying it. What's the big deal?

For what it's worth, it's very shitty of them to do what they're doing. It's a roundabout way of forcing people to upgrade to Windows 8.

I'll stop gaming before I give microsoft money for windows 8, if that's what they want. Im sure someone can come up with yet another operating system, maybe one of the game developers themselves would make an engine type of a game room that you can launch games from. Do it up.

Maybe it's a concession from Microsoft that no one cares about DirectX 11.1?  Neither AMD nor Nvidia seems to care about it, at least.  What if not porting DirectX 11.1 to Windows 7 is kind of like not porting Microsoft Bob to Windows RT?

There were what, two games that ever used DirectX 10.1?  And that had the vendor marketing point that ATI cards supported it and Nvidia didn't for about two years, so ATI had an incentive to push it.  DirectX 11.1 doesn't even have that.

Though it is a bad move, by the time games use Direct X 11 they'd be on there next OS. The only (MMO) game I can think of that incorporates the newer features is TSW.

Off topic but I'm on Windows 8 and like it. Faster boot/shutdown times, better frames on gaming, better multiple monitor support...

This is essentially par for the course isn't it?  Hasn't Microsoft always used the same sort of compatability cutoffs to ratchet consumers and publishers up from version to version?

(I have to admit I had completely forgotten about Windows 8 though ... it's not even on my radar)

This. Forcing people to buy WIndows 8 if you are a pc user. They know eventually you will need to upgrade.

Honestly, you did not see this coming? Windows 8 is what they have planned on concentrating on for some time. This is not exactly new news. While I love Windows 7, I will be upgrading to 8 within the next few months. I'm not bothered by their direction either. At least they are letting everyone know, and for those to plan accordingly.  :)

Not supporting a version of Direct X that a very small portion of games would actually use isn't forcing people to buy Windows 8. Windows 7 is going to be officially supported by Microsoft for years now, it's not like they're shoving anyone off the cliff.

How dare a company expect people to use their new products! This would be like an mmo no longer updating old content after an expansion comes out in order to encourage player to buy the expansion...oh wait...

This. It's like gamers having to update there hardware to keep up with the latest game. And it's not like your gonna need Windows 8 next month or next year even. Most PC games use Direct X 9 only because consoles revolve around it - the next gen is gonna be running DX10. We're a good half decade away at the earliest that DX11 will be standard and they'll be a new Windows OS out by then for sure. And that's still a step away from DX11.1.

Yeah but from a gamer's perspective we will want the DX11 upgrades and Microsoft knows that.

It wouldn't be so bad if Windows 8 wassn't such a controversial OS, but many people can't stand it, this will lead to fragmentation where developers either stop supporting Windows 8 or move to another OS, they pushed Gabe over the edge, I'm sure at this rate they will push a few more developers over the edge.

Windows 7 has DX 11. We're not even sure what DX 11.1 is gonna bring exactly anyways. It won't be a big jump as it's just a numberical upgrade.
