[QUOTE=Viz79;140764]What exactly are you talking about? Do you know there isnt a single game even announced that is PS 3.0 only except for BIOSHOCK? QUOTE]DUDE RAINBOW SIX VEGAS AND A SPLINTERCELL GAME DUNNMO WHICH VERSION!
GET YOUR STUPID FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU ASK ME IF I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!
*bump* this thread is funny, please continue!!
This kind of situation is sad cause it's the prove that PC gaming is becoming "exclusive" for hardcore gamers. There are a lot of people there that doesn't know much of computer specs and this "shader" problem doesn't help the PC games industry, that videocard (MY videocard lol) it's far from obsolete and we're talking about a supposed big-selling viodegame.
Playing games should be easy.
Well there's my opinion. I'm not whining I just won't buy the game.
Both games have been patched to 2.0 once developers knew the demand. Jeez, honestly, why do you people post when you have no clue?

SM2 came out over 6 years ago. It is now 2 generations behind current. SM3, released in 2005 by Microsoft to the public, Was first in a card as early as 2004 by NVIDIA (6xxx). ATI Was slow and over 2 years late getting their SM3 card to market (2006 w x1xxx series). SM4 is now the current generation (NV8xxx and ATI 2xxx)
In Summation of my Summation. 2k programmed the game for the Current Generation (SM4) and Previous (SM3) generation of cards. They made the decision that to acheive the graphics they intended, this would be their cutoff. SM2 being +2 generations old now is a dying Technology. NO new SM2 cards are being sold. SM2 market is shrinking with more and more cards being replaced.
Guess what. Tough ☺☺☺☺. because you havn't upgraded your computer in 2+ years isn't their problem. the High End Gaming community isn't going to wait for you to catch up
And for your note. if you're that desperate, Go buy a 7300 for $50 bucks
50 bucks it's a lot of food man lol.
the game is $50
if $50 is going to be the difference between eating and starving
Playing video games and your video card should be the last thing on your mind
For the record, X800 users now have an acceptable solution for running Bioshock with nearly all features intact, and almost none of the graphical artifacts present in earlier fixes. The only major downside is the increased level load times.
(Be sure to check the Project Summary thread on the ShaderShock forums to find out about the latest releases.)
It's not perfect yet, but the entire demo plays front to back with no white\missing textures to distract from the experience. I only have the demo, so I can't vouch for the rest of the retail game, but preliminary reports from the field are very promising in this regard.
wow i love that...2k is inefficiently to create an patch like that guys done ?
If it is like that so that foolish Game could go to hell....well i heard 2k is being working on such patch...but i guess their just sitting around and smelling cocaine and have no idea how to start that.
Well...respect to that Guys who ve done it !
no you can't, this isn't the first game to support 3.0 only

Its too bad that your X800 won't play the game but as mentioned by others....you'd should have known it. You can lay blame on other problems on 2K but not this one. If you can't afford a upgrade and you paid for the game then just take it back for a refund.
As for the
Again, I reiterate in response to leary's post:

and my PC at home:
AMD 2600+ OC3000+
ATI X800XT 256MB
1 GB Corsair XMS375 5-2-2-2 @170MHz DDR2
ASUS NForce2 Deluxe
Which one is faster?
In most aspects my home pc is twice as fast.
Especially gaming wise...
But i barely use that: PC games nowadays are mostly buggy eye candy without ideas.
I use the PC for simulations and hardcore strategy.
As an old school gamer (Since 1981) i love "special" games so i more and more go over to consoles because the revolutions in gaming (and the magic) happens there (New stories, new game principles, games as an art form).
But Bioshock is definitely one game i can not leave behind...
Installed on the notebook: Looks good. Runs bad (8-12 frames perhaps? Who cares...).
Installed on my pc. Used the Asankel V3 patch. Got rid of sound bug: Looks not as good as on the notebook but the difference is quite small (so it still looks great!) and runs like "teh ☺☺☺☺" (which in this case means great)
Absolutely no problems til now (Level 4) and i don't suspect any to come... (otherwise the community will solve it.)
So to everyone who says "BUY NU CARD!!!": Your lost! Take of your mums underwear! It's about REAL values and not shaders!
So thumbs up for Bioshock: It's art!
Thumbs down for 2k: You let customers solve problems on their own and play with dangerous aggressive corporate strategies...
ALL THUMBS UP FOR THE GUYS WHO MADE BIOSHOCK RUN (GREAT) ON SYSTEMS LIKE MINE! Thank you very much, guys!
Yeah the community has almost finished the patch for full support and beautiful results. In a week. Just look at the screenshot comparison, I'd love for people to give me a pepsi test of a 2.0 vs 3.0 comparison.
Yes this game was shipped without 2.0 support even though the game looks just as great with PS 2.0 and the amount of coding are done by the 'community' in such a short period of time. I know that the intelligence of some of the posters on these forums in the anti-2.0 lobby is frighteningly low but surely they can grasp now how idiotic it was for the game to come without 2.0 support, how pathetic it is for 2K not to patch it in immediately after realising the demand (clearly it would have taken them less than a matter of days considering THATS what the community took) and just what they think of the community when they not only not respond to the huge thread of people working on it but not even assist either in questions about the code.
You have to stoop rather low to find a dev just like 2K. One has to wonder just where they managed to pull a diamond like Bioshock out of. Personally Im at a point now where I just want to play Bioshock as it is while trying to wipe from my mind who made it. Real shame that.
Wish i had native english skills to make my point as clear as yours is.
Totally share your emotions about the game in contrast to the team.
After Half-Life 2 and Steam and stuff i swore i won't let that happen again...
I don't want to talk about that...
You're a liar. You're lying. That is a lie. Enjoy life lying as a lying liar that lies and tells lyish lies.

Keep in mind, I would have went with the GTX, but I had to also upgrade my Mobo, Memory, PSU, and Processor (All total, 5 items costs me more than $1000 CND.)
I'm basically aiming for BioShock/Crysis/Fallout 3, etc. The "next gen" pc games, I guess. The stuff I'm buying is:
Am I alright with this stuff? I'm primarily a gamer, but I haven't upgraded in awhile, so I'm way behind on basically everything.
Simple answer= The 8800gts pwns the X800 hard ( and nearly everything else on the market to ). Enjoy your new card & comp , and I hope you get BioShock up and running
what a tool ^^^ of course, thats like saying my corvette pwns your civic because your tires are suddenly incompatible with this new type of freeway tarmac. you're a joke, I hope you get SARS.
I think you goofed up your analogy, there.
