Stranglehold to Require Dual-Core CPUs?

The Midway Forums have what are being called the minimum system requirements for Stranglehold, the upcoming game follow-up to John Woo's Hard Boiled (thanks BeyondUnreal). The specs have raised some questions, inspiring a follow-up confirming these are the minimum, rather than the recommended specs for the game. We still suspect, however, that there will be a more news on this topic, as there are several questions the confusing specs inspire, which include high, but plausible RAM requirements, oddly mismatched video cards, and the most unusual requirement of a dual-core processor. Here are the specifications as listed:

Windows XP SP2 / VISTA (Games for Windows compliant)
Dual Core Processor
2 Gigs of Ram
Nvidia 7800 or higher / ATI x1300 or higher
Disk space: 15 gigs

How did you get "hosed" on s939? I still have my single core opty running at 2.95 and it handles everything I throw at it with ease, and I am willing to bet it could run this POS game as well.

Unless they do something really mean, like do a hardware check during install and when you run the game checking for dual cores.
