    Mark Rein confirmed that Unreal Tournament 3 will be DX10 and in NVIDIA's The Way Its Meant To Be Played program for launch. NV has along standing and close relationship with Mark and the team at Epic....

    Yeah, I had the exact same question as Copey. It would be very weird to not have DX 9 support >.<

    I sure hope they keep the DX9 support, I mean weren't the first tech demos running on a 6800GT?

    Unreal 3 wiki

    If the engine is capable of dx9, 10 and OGL, I can't see why they'd release it only for vista. Would be stupid since they'll end up getting less cash while the engine is capable of all those platforms. We'll see though, maybe the game would require more programming if they wanted to allow it to work on all platforms...

    Yea...there is no way Unreal 3 is going to be released on a Mac, that basically discredits the Unreal 3 wiki.

    UT3 mostly developed using Geforce 6800Ultra, i remember i read it somewhere, and if it be only DX10 it will fail the sells and the last things they want is this. Also DX9 version gonna look badass.

    Its just nVidia marketing saying it will look great on DX10 blah blah blah, the usual with upcoming games: improvements for those who are on DX10, yet DX9 support.

    lol yeah...people should check screenshots of the games (check UT3's website)...if a 6800 can render that, I'll buy a 7600GT and feel "future proof" :p

    If the DEV's make this game a DirectX 10 only game then they can put the game up their ***. To many people are waiting for this game. The first movies where beatifull and were recorded with a 6800 Ultra. 2 years later and the game still looks almost the same and now you will NEED a DirectX 10 card?

    If this is true, then they are doing this because the system requirements are WAY higher then expected, and if they force gamers to buy Geforce 8600 or higher, they know that everyone can play it.

    One year ago they sad that the game is playable on a Geforce 6600GT 256MB, and now they are saying 8600? Damn...

    Like I sad before, if they make it DX 10 only, they I will keep playing UT2004 and ETQW.

    Yeh UT2004 is great, espesically for LAN games. Onslaught mode + V-CTF are classic. I'm glad UT3 isnt DX10 only, should be teriffic.
