Pissed Off Gamers Ready to Sue Nvidia Over Crap Vista Drivers

Last time we checked in on Nvidia, they had yet to release final (i.e. not beta) Vista drivers for their GeForce 8000 series cards. Well, it seems like the Vista gaming community is mad and tired of waiting. They've launched a website threatening to file a class action lawsuit against Nvidia if they don't get a public apology, a release date for the final drivers, and/or a "stupid t-shirt" to compensate for their troubles.


Many of the gamers claim their 8800 cards don't work when playing games under Vista, or in some cases, the games won't even play. Nvidia has responded by saying yeah, sure, we're on it.

"Over the coming weeks NVIDIA and our partners, along with the industry will continue to update Windows Vista drivers to ensure maximum performance on 3D applications and add feature support." —Director of PR for Nvidia, Derek Perez

On the other hand, there are some gamers with 8800 cards that are having no problems at all with Vista. Either way the bottom line is you don't wanna mess with cranky gamers and their 8800s.
