    Phoronix: One Week To E3 Expo - Linux Gaming News?

    Starting one week from today is E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Will there be some exciting Linux gaming news to share from some of the leading game companies?..

    Over there somewhere


    I'm going to go with "Alas, no. None of the AAA studios have plans for anything substantial before the end of the year."

    Screw 'em.

    Go indie devs!

    "Linux gaming news?"

    Answer: yes.
    Your next headline will be "nothing to be released on Linux".
    ... But wait, it won't be new: everybody knows no game will be released on Linux.

    Default Any new linux AAA titles? no. WHY?

    Because AMD drops binary support for their shader model 4 and 4.1 hardware (HD2000.. HD4000) so soon to make sure that no company makes plans to release their games on linux platform. AMD hinders linux gaming efforts.
