One of the most hyped features of the DX9 generation of cards (of which I'm not yet an owner of) was 128bit colour back when they first hit the market. But are any games using it yet? Any in the works using it?

I think it would help with the issue of spotting enemy planes (without icons obviously) along with better lighting and reflection. Planes currently get a bit lost over forest textures as it stands now and I can imagine how much better BoB would look with a wider gamut of colour.

Makes me wonder if it will make it on the feature list of BoB.
