yeah, and original plans were for a Christmas release.... it is unclear if they will make that. The statement was they are waiting for an appropriate number of software that uses the chip.
They released a physics programming API, the right way to do this BTW, that uses the CPU if no physics card is found, and if the physics card is found it automatically transfers the processing to the chip. I gather some of the current games will already recognize and use the physics card, they have not said which or how many. And they are still hedging away from a Christmas release. Soon is all they will say.
