Dell isn't the only company reducing prices in order to squeeze in sales ahead of Black Friday: Ageia has just dropped us a line to let us know that both Newegg and TigerDirect are running specials on its PhysX physics accelerator. Newegg has a mail-in rebate that bumps the price of BFG's PhysX card down from $144.99 to $99.99, and TigerDirect has a smaller $20 rebate that drops the same card to $124.99.
Mail-in rebates may turn off some buyers, especially considering the small handful of PC games with PhysX support. However, Ageia hopes to lure in customers with new game support, as well. Tomorrow, the company tells us it will release two mod maps—dubbed Tornado and Ligthhouse—for Unreal Tournament 3 as well as a "mod-kit" for Epic's new shooter. The mods will showcase PhysX effects and will be available for download from this page, which already hypes up the Tornado map with a video.
Ageia also says NetDevil's first-person shooter Warmonger: Operation Downtown Destruction is on track for its release on November 28. The title is based on Unreal Engine 3 and uses PhysX technology to enable destructible environments. It's already available as a public beta test over on Ageia's site.
