XCOM: Enemy Unknown Preorders; System Specs

2K Games and Firaxis are now offering pre-sales of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, their upcoming continuation of the strategic elements of the XCOM series of counter-UFO games. This is available through various digital distributors and includes the incentive of the Elite Soldier pack, which offers "top-of-the-line soldier customization features" they say "will only be available while supplies last" (can you exhaust a supply of digital content?). They also announce that those who pre-purchase the game through Steam have the opportunity to unlock incentives based on the number of other preorders: "If enough people pre-order XCOM: Enemy Unknown , they will unlock 3 exclusive XCOM-themed items in Team Fortress 2. If even more people pre-order, they will unlock a free copy of Firaxisís other big title, Civilization V (and yes, you can gift it to a friend if you already own it)." Finally, with about a month to go before the game's release, they provide us with its system requirements:

Minimum Requirements:
OS: Windows Vista
Software: Steam Client
Processor: 2 GHz Dual Core
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Hard Drive: 20 GB free
Video Memory: 256 MB
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT / ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT or greater
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

Recommended Requirements:
OS: Windows 7
Processor: 2 GHz Dual Core (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Athlon X2 2.7 GHz)
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Hard Drive: 20 GB free
Video Memory: 512+ MB
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9000 series / ATI Radeon HD 3000 series or greater
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

Additionally, VG247 has posted an E3 Gameplay Walkthrough video from the game.

the long gameplay videos on youtube from the dev show a very promising strategy game. And the devs seem to be big fans of the original XCOM.

The same could be said of Diablo & Jay Wilson and company and look how that turned out...

Damn, my pessimism is going to be the end of me.

Yeah. Thankfully Kotick hasn't bought and perverted Firaxis (yet), so we can have some faith.
