    I'm not sure you understand what Metal does? Metal's the answer (and replacement to OpenGL) to DirectX 12 which allows devs low level GPU access.
    It's not some sort of engine that requires high spec hardware, the complete opposite in fact.

    Lol, well I supose they are now getting what we have,equaling Metal to DirectX.
    If they are getting better, doesn't mean they are getting better than "us".

    Why is it every other day there's a "what's WP's answer to 'blah blah' that 'this or that OS does', come on MS" thread? There's altogether too much ios/android envy here, we all enjoy improvements in our technology but there's really no need to panic every time a competitor does something.

    Ask a dev why they're not making the game that you want on this platform, it certainly supports it.

    Directx 12 should (as MS has said) bring a big jump in gaming performance for all of their products. How much more performance and graphical fidelity waits to be seen.

    Metal is the answer to DirectX. You've got it backwards....
