but that's just a memory leak or something like that, rather than something that would affect the benchmark, right?
Yeah the memory leak would only happen after you'd seen an X number of cutscenes and get progressively worse. Wouldn't affect the demo.
Any inside info on 1.3 and it's release date?
Supposedly it will fix the broken patrol/invasions and try to iron out a lot of the plot bugs and broken Corporations. As for how long it will take, I'd say early december. That's a LOT of things they have to fix and test, especially since those bugs happen at the end of 15 hours of plot missions.
