if i remember correctly, when this game was announced and they showed a tech video preview they mentioned how the gaming was so demanding it would take a quad core processor. Am i missing something? isn't the xbox360 'old' tech by now? pff
You remember correctly, and I'm just as confused. You can optimize a game for a static hardware setup, but the way they were talking, it just wasn't going to be possible to have all the physics/graphical effects going without a state of the art DX10 system.
This news is as bad as seeing how Rockstar is raping Max Payne in the third game. Wish that game had still been in Remedy's hands, but the way it sounds, they just don't have the staff to do two games at once.
