This is true. Whilst I have not been gaming as much as I used to lately I have been trying to buy/keep up with the latest games. And nearly all of them use four cores now. Mostly the new "console slop" but yeah, they are threading better. I've got quite a few games that will refuse to run without four cores. Just Cause 3 as an example (which also tells you you need 16gb ram and then crashes shortly after when you only have 8gb). Just a shame they are so crap really. I mean they look a tiny bit better than last gen but nowhere near enough to justify the grunt you need to run them smoothly !
