Delayed due to work on 360 DLC content ♥$$$$♥
QUAD? LOL, a dual core PC cpu is significantly faster at gaming then the CPU in the consioles, is Rockstar that bad at making PC games? I am glad they seem to be trying to make it more of a Pc game then a port, but those specs are out of whack.
id agree on the delayed due to the 360 dlc tbh
with those specs half its market just disapeared
its specs are higher than crysis for just minimum
Recommended : Geforce 8600 / Radeon 3870... Did they pull this one out of their asses, the 8600 is so much worse than the 3870 (or a X1900 that is the minimum) it doesn't make sense.
This information is impossible. The 8600 GT is very lower card than a 3870.
lol, quad core while only need a 8600?? you sure it's a games requirement? not some computing program?
still, i can't wait to play it on PC, it'd be much better than the PS3 version i was playing all last month
Meh, another poorly optimized game. Is it just me or are devs getting lazier and lazier with every game?
Is it just me or do people forget that the consoles are all multi core? (except the Wii)
Why would it NOT need multi core CPU's when the code is clearly optimized for such CPU's? (the 360 is a tri-core CPU and the PS3 is 8 "cells")
And 18GB is hardly large sheesh. What you have to think of is that they are probably using higher compression ratios on the console DVD's so as to conserve space and also probably lower res textures.
Why keep the data compressed on the PC when you can run with it uncompressed because space allows for it?
very good point.
but 8600? im not sure about the level of graphics details now something like 8800GTS 640MB (what Crysis recommended) should be more reassuring.
Those specs are for the DRM, the game itself will run on a 386
Everyone also seems to forget that on the consoles this game runs at a maximum of 720p, and even then barely pulls 30 frames a second. Unlike consoles, the PC can scale performance as better hardware comes out, so what looked grungy at times on the console versions will look much, much better on a PC running it at the typical resolutions.
While I've never played the any of the games in the series. I just never could see the appeal of the concept of the game.
iirc the ps3 version is something like 560x1000 upscaled to 720p and the 360 version is even worse. the PC version has to run at 1680x1050 and 1920x1200
My laptop is leagues slower than my desktop but it could run this, the desktop couldn't. Since when were service packs considered system requirements?
Oh and games for windows, I would rather continue playing on my ps3.
Thank-you for contributing to the discussion. Your point was certainly meaningful.
....................try one then...........also take off your serious hat if you play, they are meant to be fun and at times wacky games, also takes the mick out of a lot of things.........
XP SP3 will need to be installed to run this game ??
looks like whoever released those specs has the dumb.
q6600 != Phenom 8750
8600 != 3870
And wtf is with the low GPUs? are they playing at 640x480?
And in response to the delay: ****
If it gets delayed anymore, the boy i won't bea ble to tick will be the HD space...
