GTX 460 or greater with 4GB as the minimum? Those are some pretty steep sys requirements...
he never said that was minimum. he said that was playable, which is usually about middle of the road. also, 4GB is old hat for the target audience. i've had at least that much for probably 5 years, and a gtx460 is two generations old now.

to be clear, this isn't a game for HP or compaq (are they even around anymore?) users. this is a throwback to the golden days of PC gaming when a new AAA title required top end hardware to run at max settings, and i'm fine with that. i think it's a good thing that pc games blow consoles out of the water, or else what do i have all this horsepower for?

i think a lot of new players are going to be put off by the newtonian physics - very confusing to fly in unless you have significant experience with it like I do (playing iwar2), but i don't think many of the backers played those games. it's hard to get your mindset out of the topgun/xwing mode of fly-straight-and-turn piloting. the first time they're on my tail, and i just rotate around while spiral strafing and own them while flying backwards, that's probably gonna cause more than a few flaming 'nerf newton!' forum posts.
