Does anyone know what the system requirements for SC-DA are going to be. Checked several places but there's nothing posted or it's N/A. Thanks for your input.
BTW FS has presale on right now (Sunday night) for 35.99

jesus Christ those are high requirements. PC gaming is really on the decline. After not owning a console since SNES, I might take the plunge on the 360.

I'd personally like to see more games with high requirements. I'd hate to see programmers hold back on their PC game titles because people can't afford $1500-3000 dollar PC's. On the otherhand if the ridiculous requirements are a result of lazy programming vs neccessity, then @#$$ them.
If people want to play new games on a $600 PC, they can just get a $500 XB-360 instead, that is usually as good, if not better (ie NHL07), on the 360 anyway.
And I don't want to sound mean, but if you can't afford either thing (gaming pc, or a 360), then stop playing games, you obviously have better things you should be focussing on.
(not directed at anyone in the thread, but it's annoying when people lament about not being able to play a new PC release on a 2 year old non-gaming PC).

Requiring $2-$3k in new PC hardware to play a new release is garbage. Sure, require the latest and greatest to play the game at 1600x1200 with every last bit of eye candy on. That makes sense. Asking me to scrap my machine after 6 months to be able to LOAD your game? Um, no.
Man, first starforce protection, now this? No more splinter cell for me. Too bad, the first two games were great!

Yeah those reqs are outrageous! I have to see it in action though to justify those requirements

Well I mentioned an easy remedy for people (most) that don't have a top of the line machine.
My PC is probably middle of the road by now, and I don't intend on keeping it anywhere near cutting edge anymore, it's too expensive, and aside from FPS games (don't play them much), and RTS games (oh I'll miss them), there's no reason to throw big money at the PC anymore.
I don't think UBI Soft did anything wrong, would you prefer they just say... oh it'll work fine on your POS PC, and you find out that they meant 1024x768, with the lowest possible details? I'd rather they tell the truth and have the TARGETTED audience happy with the performance of their new game.
And I'm sorry you spent big bucks on that X850XT PE in early 2005 xwar. More reason to get a 360 - PC Gaming is a joke! <lazy programmers and an incredibly wide range of hardware they have to try to accomodate>
Actually I'm not even sure if any of you bothered to read the damn thing, the only thing that sticks out is the SM3.0 compliant video card bit. Who in the right mind would consider PC gaming with anything less than a A64 3500+?
The game is optimized for dual core, you know the one thing that was holding back early adopters? Well the game will work fine without it, but reward the people willing to upgrade / already have it.
8GB's of hard drive space?
EAX compatible soundcard?
HAHA you guys kill me. Seriously.

The wide range of pre-pre-previous (I made that up) gen hardware on the PC is partly why those bastards only released 'next-gen' hockey on the 360.
