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.
