EverQuest Next Requires 64-bit OS

Dave Georgeson tweets a "news flash" that SOE's upcoming MMORPG remake EverQuest Next will not support 32-bit operating systems: "Another News Flash: Landmark is going to have to be a 64-bit OS game *only*. We are going to be unable to support 32-bit OS as we had hoped." Thanks GameInformer.

I feel like I'm in another world here. People complaining about a 64 bit requirement,...people complaining about bandwidth requirements
Nice fail. No one complained about a 64 bit requirement. I simply asked if they would hold their ground because I suspected a good portion of their customer base wasn't using a 64 bit OS. Additionally, I said it was reasonable, but didn't know if their customers would agree. And the discussion continued from there.

As for the bandwidth requirement, it depends on what the actual usage is. In a world of bandwidth caps, if it really does regularly need an active 3Mb connection, that's probably problematic.
