That fake FSX DX10 "screenshot"

Recommended Posts

Well, I was bored so I checked out Microsofts Vista homepage. I was a bit surprised when reading about DX10 under the "Features Explained" section. Have a look:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/...ls/directx.mspxNot only are they using that old faked FSX DX10 "screenshot". There's also a "Flight Simulator X" logo on the actual screenshot, and under the image is written "Eye-popping graphics in Microsoft Flight Simulator X.".Are they allowed to do that legally? They don't actually state anywhere that it's a "real" screenshot, but alot of people are going to believe that it is. Once they switch to Vista and fire up FSX, they'll be very disappointed.

Arrg... those darn marketing guys. :) That is not as bad as stating the minimum computer requirements to run FSX is a 1.0 Gig processor, 32meg video card and 15mb of disc space. Maybe we can save money and join the two into one law suite? LOL.
