It is sad that I can't tell if it's BS or not
I would normally say this is bullshit as requiring a different set of hardware is a major revision, making it DX 11.0, and a professional software house like Microsoft would know this. Even if non-techs run a software house, the engineers still stick to engineering conventions, such as the version numbering scheme. However, Microsoft violate all manner of standards.
Neither can I say Microsoft wouldn't screw over the graphic card market for their own ends and let the game publishers and players suffer. They did it for Direct3D.
It is sad that I can't tell if this atrocity is bullshit or not.
Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?
