Far Cry 3 Delayed

Ubisoft announces a delay for Far Cry 3, saying the first-person shooter sequel is now due for PCs and consoles on November 29th in EMEA territories and on December 4th in the U.S. "We're taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience," said Dan Hay, producer at Ubisoft. "Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players." Prior to this setback, the game was expected in September.

So you dual-boot your system just to run a shit and out of dating operating system most of the time?

There are perfectly valid reasons to run XP. For one, it still has better compatibility with older games, programs and hardware. It also consumes less memory, which is useful if you don't have 4 gigs of RAM.

If you have a high-end system with lots of memory and you only play new games, Windows 7 is fine. But if you don't have that much memory, you have older hardware or you like to play a lot of older games, XP is the better option.

It's also important to note that the majority of games still only support DX9. Some games that have DX10/11 support aren't well-optimized, resulting in subpar performance (Metro 2033 and Arkham City come to mind) unless you play in DX9 mode. As such, even if you only use XP and miss out on DX10/11 features, you aren't really missing out on much.
