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.

Maybe I made it sound like I didn't use or appreciate 64 bit? Right, in my experience only hard core gamers or computer system knowledgeable people use or know to get 64 bit. Obviously you guys know there are Win 7 & Win 8 32 bit OS.

I really don't mean to freak you guys out, but there's a whole world out there, who are not consumed by hard core games!
Nah. But your experience must be pretty limited, even at the local shitshop(BB/FS/Staples), you can't buy a ground floor PC with anything except a 64bit OS. Even the junk-o-tron 3000 at walmart comes with a 64bit OS now.

You actually have to specify a 32bit OS now, and it's easier for the named companies to have a unified OS base for troubleshooting.
