Am I the only one that thinks the CPU req is somewhat high end compared to the 2006-2007 era video card and RAM reqs?

SS looks good and in-game trailer shows some good eye-candy action sequences, but I don't think they justify THIS much of recommended spec.
I fear it's gonna be another shitty port. It uses RAGE afterall...

The specs show a huge range from 2-core to 6-core CPUs and incredibly old GPUs to high-end GPUs. Probably because the engine will use whatever it has available to it, much like what GTA 4 did (thought GTA 4 was pretty terrible on low/medium-range hardware)

I don't understand why these ranges of hardware requirements are being posted rather than the recommended specs.

It looks great but I'm gonna wait on this one, as Rockstar has put out a lot of incredibly shitty PC ports recently. And I hope it doesn't include the Rockstar Social shitware.

Also, the 35GB might also refer to the fact that it downloads 15GB then temporarily extracts everything to 35GB, until it deletes the install files after.

Most likely, yes. Hard drive space requirements are generally based on how much space you need for the install process, not on how much space it takes up when it is done. The install process can take triple the actual install size.

I hope this means the PC version is getting crisp high resolution textures that do the platform justice. Not downscaled console bluroramas.
Check out the new PC screens posted, it looks good !

I'm pretty sure it isn't pre rendered cutscenes. I was watching one of the behind-the-scenes videos and they were talking about how the cinematics and gameplay were seamless, flowing right into each other.

Yeah they did say that. I'm hoping the high GB requirement is from uncompressed audio and textures. It's a story heavy game with narration and enemies doing a lot of yelling, that voiced dialog probably accounts for the majority of the requirement.

If they want to get fast camera movements and multiple angles at the same time (which the previews have shown), it's much easier to do with pre-rendered video.

Hopefully this means that we get full uncompressed or lightly-compressed 1080p video instead of overly-compressed 720p videos!

Also, the 35GB might also refer to the fact that it downloads 15GB then temporarily extracts everything to 35GB, until it deletes the install files after.

You left out the strangest one: 35 gig of HD space.



Uncompressed movies and textures probably, which is a good thing. Everyone complains about compressed to shit 720p videos but then when a game like The Force Unleashed uses uncompressed video people bitch about the file size.

I agree and hope you're right.

edit: err agree with uncompressed... not movies, audio and textures.

You can't win in this industry.
