You do know that there is a 64-bit version XP Pro available? So XP users can still play this game when it comes out
From what I'd heard a few years ago, it was buggy as fuck and no one used it.
edit: There's also a 32 bit version of 7, but no one uses that, either.
Holy shit, nin, we touch a nerve or something?
I have to raise my hand on the 'no one uses Win7/x86' thing, though. I absolutely do
use it, and often. Some of my systems here at home don't have over 4gb of RAM and really are just upgraded from XP recently anyway. Plus, while the system may have newer parts inside, the peripherals that are hooked to it are older (printers, scanners, webcams) and as such, I can't find x64 drivers for some of them. In addition, some apps and games that the family uses (who aren't 'hardcore') have troubles with Win7/x64 that I'd rather not have to deal with, so it's easier to install 32-bit Win7 when upgrading them from XP (after prying said OS out of their unwilling hands)...
