If DirectX was one of the poorest APIs to use I don't think every single AAA developer would port their games to PC through it.

After this generation the LAST thing MS wanna come at Sony with is graphics. Halo just started looking current gen at Halo 4 last year.

Killzone 2 an older game still looks better and won more best graphics.
