January 8, 2007 - Age of Conan made a splash at the Consumer Electronics Show by being one of two games, Crysis being the other, to be shown using Microsoft's new and much touted DirectX 10 for Vista. The online action RPG for PC and Xbox 360, though only running on PC here, was a great way to showcase the new Vista platform with some stunning DX10 visuals.
So, Microsoft has gotten to another mmorpg company.
Instead of MMO standing for Massively Multiplayer Online, I guess this will be Minimally Multiplayer Online? Since The MASSES certainly don't have the worlds largest and most bloated and expensive operating system in the world running on the most expensive personal computer system in the world.
