    Phoronix: Unigine Engine Updates, Continually Improving

    Last week we confirmed that Unigine's Linux compatible game has been delayed by a few months since Unigine Corp had diverted their resources to finishing out their DirectX 11.0 renderer.

    Thats to bad they are going to go to direct X. I won't be buying any Direct X products ever again. Direct X 10 was a complete train wreck.
    As well as all the previous Direct X's.
    Open GL is the future!

    Xbox360 does not have OpenGL, but that is a Microsoft-specific Microsoft limitation. All the other consoles, like the PS3 and the Wii, use OpenGL.

    And do you think you could sell a game engine without that support?

    OpenGL features comes in parallel with DirectX ones, so almost all of the new render features will be available in Linux as well.
