  1. Thats very low, I know a lot of people that will now be getting this on PC, after I tell them the good news =)

    My PC is fine though, seeing as it can run BF3 on Ultra at 50-60 fps =)

  3. Even if my PC could handle it, (it lets me down A LOT!) i would probably still play it on my console, just because i’m used to playing (Fallout and such) for hours and hours on a big screen sitting in my loungy couch. 

    + I share this computer with family + if it doesnt have a demo i don’t even dare to buy it for my PC.

  4. If those specs are all that is needed to get the most out of the graphics, then I suspect this is going to be a poor console port. We haven’t seen any PC gameplay footage either. So, I’ve cancelled my pre-order and will wait for reviews…
