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

Recommended Requirements:

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

I funded Xenonauts kickstarter and I have to say it is the old Xcom as we want it and it even improves on it in some areas. The Cold War setting is also a good fit as well. Like others here I am not getting the Xcom vibe from this remake. I'll wait for reviews from the community before I take the plunge on this one.
