BioShock Infinite PC Q&A

The Irrational Games Website now features a Q&A on the recently revealed specs for the PC edition of BioShock Infinite, their upcoming first-person shooter sequel. There are a few answers covering Steam support, saying that Steam is required, Steam's standard DRM will be used, and boxed copies will include Steam keys. They also say the game will have full widescreen support and will be able to play at the maximum framerate supported by your system, and discuss OS support, saying it will be Window 8 "compatible" and not "certified," and that there will be no Windows XP support.

low FOV haters?

Can I buy this logic in a jar? Low FOV motion sickness is a medical issue, not a damned choice! If you don't suffer from it you are not having the setup required to suffer from it (large screen, less than arm length distance).

If you don't agree with scientific facts (and that is the case for the FOV and what is optimal at what distance : screensize : aspect) then nobody can help you. But we are not even hating low fov, we are hating on companies deadlocking it with bullshit excuses....

I use a 28" screen just over arm's distance away. It's not an issue for everyone, nor is it some kind of "fact" you insane person. It's a subjective thing. I tried Bioshock (and many other games) in default FOV and higher FOV and I see fisheye on the higher one.

JE Sawyer wrote about this on his formspring a while back and basically said old Quake players need to just get used to it because high FOV brings on distortion. I agree with him. You don't have to, that's why it's subjective.
