Aliens vs. Predator publisher SEGA has today unveiled the minimum and recommended PC system requirements for Rebellion's sci-fi shooter
I more than meet the recommended requirements and the last thing I bought was a Radeon 5770 for about 170USD. This game shouldn't murder gaming PC's even if they were built on a budget.
Minimum Requirements: Windows 7/ XP/Vista 1 GB System RAM (XP)/ 2 GB System RAM (Vista) 3.2 GHz Intel Pentium 4/Athlon 64 3000+ or equivalent processor DirectX 9.0c compliant video card with 128 MB RAM (NVIDIA 6600 or better, ATI X1600 or better) Recommended Requirements: Windows 7/ XP/Vista Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 or equivalent processor 2 GB System RAM DirectX 9.0c compliant video card with 512 MB RAM (NVIDIA 8800 series, ATI HD2900 PRO or better) very nice. Guess I'll be chewing through this game without an upgrade.
I guess my new Intel 920 and HD 5870 will eat this game for lunch.
Hell yes, not even a quad for the recommended specs?, either it's not optimised for quads, or they were generous with their game coding. Either way, this is good news for my PC, and even better news when I get a gtx380 in march The minimum specs for this multiplat generation have been the same for a few years, 99% of the time the min specs are: 6800gt, 1900xt, 2gz dual, 2gb ram this is even lower :S
To be honest I don't think this games going to be graphically stunning anyway, It should be really fun and nostalgic but you shouldn't need a really high end PC to play it on nice settings.
The game must scale REALLY well. Because I know the even the recommended specs seem kinda low for the visuals I see in the screen shots. Let alone with tessalation that is supposed to be in the DX11 version of this game.
Makes you wonder if tessellation is that great if dx11 can produce those kinds of screenshots with that kinda hardware. Dev's and AMD have pronounced that with dx11 you can produce even better visuals while taxing less system resources. How I can't wait to see a true dx11 game
From the screens I'v seen of this game, it looks pretty damn good. And the relatively low specs make it even more impressive. This is the first game that has motivated me to buy a DX 11 card but it doesn't seem like its necessary just yet.
Wow I can still max this out according to their recommended specs. I was thinking a CPU from 2006 would start to stutter at 2010's games.. but no.
The original PC AvP's system requirements were claimed to be "P3 or Athlon 450 MHz or higher, 128MB RAM or higher, 16MB DirectX 8 compatible D3D video card, etc." But it was difficult to play with that hardware - and when there were more than one or two aliens on screen, it became a slideshow. I definitely needed an upgrade to play it well. Maybe Rebellion's being honest this time, but I'd bed the "recommended" requirements are the *practical* minimum. (That being said, I enjoyed the original game, and look forward to this one. Fortunately, my current PC is right around the "recommended" level.)
Surprisingly low considering how sick this game looks.
This is good though. It ensures good frame rates assuming it's programmed well.
all i need is windows 7 for the DX11 features like tessellation but i just got my new 5850 5 days ago and its amazing :D!!!! cant wait to get this bad boy running on it :)
Dude, who told you you need windows 7?, if you have vista it also supports DX11, you probably already have the DX11 update, just use the windows updater if not. But if your still using vista....then yeah, no soup for you
Looks like my computer will be running this game with ease :) Cant wait for this to release.
Make sure red light turns blue. Dualshock 3. 40 inches or more LCD.
you get what you pay for, 720p and 30 frames... You do realise that the minimum specs for this game support even 5 year old pc's, better requirements than a black toy where the games cost $10-20 more each...
Playstation 3 - $299.99 40" LCD HDTV - $599.99-$799.99 Aliens VS Predator PS3 - $59.99-$79.99 Total: $959.98-$1179.97 Congratulations! You just spent more money than what was necessary to run a game at something lower than 720p native with 30 FPS! YOU'RE A WINNER!
I've spent $1500 on a PC when Crysis came out just to play that ONE game and guess what..it couldn't max out that single game. So I wasted $1500. PC gaming is way more expensive than console game. I have to buy one console that will play ALL the latest games on my 52" Sony Bravia and guess what...the gfx still blow me away. I don't need to have a 19" monitor with 2321432423x43543534543 resolution because it doesn't matter on a 19" monitor. I used to be a PC gamer a long time ago and every 6months I had to fork out for new hardware. I don't know how is it now but back in a few years the newest video card cost around $400-$500. That is more than a PS3 alone. Also I got a 136 games for my PS3 and they ALL run without any problems! I think I will get AvP on PS3 as well and enjoy the hell out of it. FOR less than you will enjoy AvP. Don't even start confusing a 52" HDTV with a montior ok?? don't even go there.
How did I know a bunch of PC fanboys were going to get their feelings hurt, and how did I know you would be one of them dchalfont? Its a joke dudes, I deliberately didnt insult your precious PC's. You have nothing to be defensive about. Get over it, live with it, or forget about it. And thanks, for calling me a winner.
can't have been much of a PC gamer to be forking out every 6 months. edit: yeh I'm not quite sure why so many people get worked up about it since it doesn't matter as long as they can play it. PC gaming's a hobby and like any hobby it can be expensive but you don't need to spend a lot to run PC games which is something a lot of people don't get. You just need to spend a little time to make some well informed choices about the hardware you buy. edit2: @dchalfont, I think we're safe with SC2. It's not going to be a resource hog like Crysis but it will definitely still look good in another decade considering the resolutions you can run current games on.
You must be doing it wrong then, because I bought my gtx280 2 years ago and I max EVERY GAME except crysis. You do realise that not even a 5970 can max crysis right?, as in even with no AA at 1080p it cant get 60 frame average on very high, it gets close, about 50 frames. The fact is that crysis was future proofed with it's settings, like pc games used to be, they were stupid to make it so graphically intensive but it will pay off in time. I hope to god that they do the same with starcraft 2 ( although not to the same degree ) because people will play that game for the next 20 years and look how badly SC1 aged because it didn't have options above what current tech could support. @Raf1k1 That's my point though, is that the resolutions of today will be outdated in years to come, just as they were in the past, so it needs to support much higher settings and resolution in order to keep its looks.
I can't tell if you are trolling, but NOTHING could max out Crysis when it came out, so you were foolish to invest that much money. It was made to be scalable for current GPU tech. And my Samsung LED LCD is a pretty badass monitor via HDMI, set to PC input for no input latency, tested lower than stupid Game mode. You asked a valid question, and NO it is not the same with video cards anymore, A freaking $90 GT240 paired with a core 2 duo will run any multiplatform game(thiking Fallout 3/L4D2/HAWX benchmarks here) at higher settings than consoles, and you get a superior product with M/KB and mods (google FOOK2)
I'm sorry I didn't uber-hack it. I just never fealt like bothering that much. I'm sorry that I didn't overclock everything in my PC's so they can eat up so much electricity than I have to pay every penny that I had left. I'm so sorry that EVERY SINGLE PC user is in denial and believes that PC gaming is cheaper....yeah it is cheaper when you pirate all your games off the internet not supporting the creators of your favorite game.
Right, you've never purchased a used game before, its the same crap, piracy with taxes and giving a few 1000 high school drop outs a job. From the way you act, you're probably one of them.
I don't think you understand. There's no need for uber hacks, overclocks or anything else. All you have to do is a few google searches for the hardware you're interested in and you'll find tonnes of information about it and just how good it is. Also, as a PC gamer, I'm surprised you didn't have an active interest in PC gaming as thats what helps keep PC gamers up to date with what's going on in the world of PCs. edit: @dchalfont, the more comments he makes the more convinced I am that he wasn't much of a PC gamer because if he was he'd be making comments that make sense even if they were anti-PC.
haha, B.S you bought a pc for crysis, the way your talking you're probably at your public library because you don't even own a pc. I just payed $79aus for ME2, $74aus for Bioshock 2, $82aus for Supreme commander 2, and $79 aus for AVP The console Price for all of those games= $109aus, thats a pretty big F-ing savings right there, up to $40 per game, PC gaming is much cheaper, and if your not an idiot you can build your own PC and have one that maxes every game for years, as I and the others here have
@ dchalfont : Public libary??? :D that was funny. Well my friend I'm at work if you have to know. I'm the manager of an engraving store here in NYC and I make pretty good money. So much so that I can easily afford to buy 4-5 PS3 games every month plus 4 blu-ray movies to go along with that and it doesn't hurt me in any way financially. So let's just put this high school drop out...good for nothing bimbo on the side. Also if you need to know I have at the moment 3 PC's sitting at home. But I only use one and even that just very rearly....my gf uses it way more than me. Believe it or not I did get a PC JUST because of Crysis because I was so crazy for how it looked I said that I have to have this game no matter...but also that didn't hurt me financially what so ever. My point is only that PC gaming is more expensive than console gaming. Buy a console you are good for 6-8years. Let me ask you.....out of todays games which is the one that a 6-8year old PC will run??? ...............that's what I though. Also the only reason I started this whole argument is this: " Playstation 3 - $299.99 40" LCD HDTV - $599.99-$799.99 Aliens VS Predator PS3 - $59.99-$79.99 Total: $959.98-$1179.97 " #1 Who the hell in their right mind thinks that a gamer will buy a PS3, an HDTV just for a SINGLE game??? I mean come on...how unrealistic is that?? Plus you buy that HDTV for watching....wait for it...wait for it....TV programing and movies!!!!! Not just plaing games. You buy that system because there are other games on it as well that you can purchase in the future for it. I did buy more PC games later...like Gears of War 1, Rome Total War (which I play till this day), Sims 2, Sism 3....all the CSI games for my girlfriend (she's crazy about CSI) so I used the PC for other games as well. But a PC can be used for other things as well so I didn't mind the investment really. Also if you guys come up with the argument that you have your PC connected to an HDTV than....what the hell are we talking about here??? You spent that $599-$799 as well. So than that leaves us with the $399 PS3......I think a decent PC is more than that. at least by a good $200. So don't try to justify the prices here when you guys become hypocrites in minutes. EDIT: @Arnon Hey smart guy!! Thanks for providing me with your PC's specs. This is how much it is now: Your Motherboard: Around $120 Your Processor: Around $70 Your Video Card: Around $140 Your Memory (8gigs..woah): Around $250 Your HDD: Around $100 Your Power Supply: Around $75 Your Gaming mouse: Around $60 In total: $815+tax Let's not even calculate your 19" monitor (hahahahahahaha)which was $114. Why did you pay so much if a much cheaper PC can do better than what the PS3 is capable of??? Your whole argument of PC gaming is cheaper just failed right there. Anyone can check the prices of his PC components. He listed them all in his blog. Thank you! Have a nice day!
O god its turn to the whole my ____ is bigger then your ____ argument, Well mine is bigger then both of yours so lets end it there ok? PS:Ares84PS3 If your a manager then you should be busy at work instead of arguing how many PS3's you can buy in a month with some random guy on the internetz. Maybe we should start a who's the bigger idiot contest see who wins that?
Rofl why would you upgrade every 6 months? That's not PC gaming, that's just making stupid decisions. Also, you realize that it doesn't matter the screen size for resolutions... except of course if you're doing it on a TV, because you're not exactly sitting 10" away from your screen. The resolution is not dependent on the size of your monitor. It's dependent on how many vertical and horizontal lines are produced on the screen. It's the reason why a 720p 40" HDTV and a 1080p 40" HDTV exist at the same time. Do you even know what the "i" and "p" stand for? "Also I got a 136 games for my PS3 and they ALL run without any problems!" Just from this statement alone, it pretty much confirms you had absolutely no idea what you were doing with your PC. Also good job comparing past prices of a GPU with the current prices of a PS3, which you know... basically contradicted everything you were trying to convey. "#1 Who the hell in their right mind thinks that a gamer will buy a PS3, an HDTV just for a SINGLE game??? I mean come on...how unrealistic is that?? Plus you buy that HDTV for watching....wait for it...wait for it....TV programing and movies!!!!! Not just plaing games." ...You're an idiot, aren't you? The reason the TV was brought up was because Bathyj (Yes, I know you were joking, man. That line "YOU'RE A WINNER" is from a song by The Lonely Island) brought up the fact that you needed some large ass HDTV to experience Aliens VS Predator at it's amazingly max resolution of 720p (lolz).
Maybe its all in my head then, disgusts me to have to go to the store to drop $65 total on a PS3 game that I will beat in 10 hours only to have it collect dust, I refuse to contribute to Gamestop. So I use gamefly now for my PS3 needs lol. But I don't have a problem spending money on cheaper PC games, cost me $33 for Bioshock 2 Steam. (Steam deals add up for massive savings) Just calculated all my multiplatforms PC games, Dirt 2, Mass Effect, MWF2, [email protected], Dragon Age, GTA IV, Red Faction G, SF IV, Borderlands, Dark Sector, Far Cry 2, L4D, L4D2, NFS Shift, Assasin's Creed. Came out to $359. Console price...$960 ouch!!!!!!! I think the HDTV argument isn't too valid for PC pricing, everyone has an HDTV for everyday needs, everyone has a PC for everyday needs, buy something with a good processor so IF you want to PC game, that $100-$200 GPU investment isn't too difficult.
Well you ____ ____, it just shows that your a ____ ____ and all the other _____ have been ____ ____ for the last ____. Why don't you ____ ____. Seriously there plenty of other ways to waste your time why not go have an argument with someone outside? Best to quick before you guys end up looking as stupid as this xD http://img695.imageshack.us...

Amazing. You're actually paying more to get the full experience out of your PS3, and I even factored my monitor in for you.. Next time, actually look up the information before you randomly guess numbers. Good job owning yourself, once again.
make no mistake the best first person game out there this upcoming year...survivor mode is GOING TO BE SIIIIIIIIICK
Don't have to play around with the settings :)
Have fun, because this game is going to look AMAZING!!!!!!!!! in DX11, expecially with tweaks and mods that will keep the AVP community alive for years after the ps3 is dead and gone.
Also....man there are tons of games comming out on PS3 so I probably don't even have time to play this game for more than a month. MAG, God of War 3, Heavy Rain, GT5....just to name a few. Also...how fun it is that I just insert the disk and relax and play the game in minutes where as you have to play around with the settings for the next hour to get the max out of the game that your PC is able to do.
na dude, it's a 24" monitor, and i've got a 40" tv in the lounge room, but why would I sit on a couch like a fat slob when I can sit comfortably at a desk and play games. You do realise that PCs can hook up to TV's via HDMI cable???, you didn't know that?, just as I thought, retard
What's with the 19" monitor comment? Come on, you know PC gamers are hobbiests and as such they do tend to invest in larger screens for their gaming pleasure.
Than tell me Raf1k1, why did a PC gamer calculated an HDTV's price into the cost of playing a game on the PS3 showing that it's that much more expensive to game on a console when OBVIOUSLY PC gamers game on HDTV's as well. WTF guys??? Why are you guys such a hypocrites ?? You can't just change s*th up to suite your argument. @ dchalfont Dude...I hope you do realize that a couch is more comfortable than any desk chair. Don't tell me the opposite because that will be really going overboard with this crap. I'm sorry but I take the couch every day over a desk chair. That is not one argument you will win buddy. Plus fat slob?? yeah so according to your logic anyone that sits on a couch is a fat slob.....you might have to discuss this with the whole world because everyone will disagree with you.
Hang on a minute. I'm not the one who said that and normally I wouldn't add a HDTV into the console gaming equation as it's not a requirement to play console games. I would however add a monitor/HDTV to the PC equation as it's usually something you'd need as a PC gamer. The only reason I'm arguing against you is that you're not making fair comments. You're being overly negative about it for some reason. I'll let dchalfont answer you're question since it was him who said it lol. edit: I agree, the couch is more comfortable but then again it comes down to the individual. Some people do prefer desk chairs as they're usually the ones who invest in the really comfortable ones with a large price tag.
"Hang on a minute. I'm not the one who said that and normally I wouldn't add a HDTV into the console gaming equation as it's not a requirement to play console games. I would however add a monitor/HDTV to the PC equation as it's usually something you'd need as a PC gamer." I would not add monitor or even whole PC for gaming expense 'coz I need computer to pay my bills online and manage my netflix, oh and surf webs and use N4G.
You're talking about a PC for everyday use (which wouldn't be very good for a PC gamer) whereas I'm talking about gaming PCs.
just how close or far away you have to sit, resolution is everything, and even a 19" will be playing at 900p, something you won't be seeing on a PS3. Resolution makes the game looks better, and has gameplay advantages.
I have high anticipation for this game; hope they don't screw it up.
how bout this...WE TALK ABOUT THE GAME?...seriously game is going to be sooooooooooo good ans has everything u can possibly want...how bout we talk about it instead of which version is best or platform is best?
Having played the 2nd and having heard good things about the first I'm looking forward to this. Playing as a marine is a lot of fun if you can call being scared fun lol. The most enjoyment I'll have is playing as a Predator and stalking my prey from the trees. edit: Yeah I've heard that about the first one. As much fun as I have playing survival horror type games I hate playing them in the dark lol. Call me a wuss lol but it does sometimes put me off playing a game even when it's a great experience.
buy the original on steam....sooooooo good and fun...and by far scarier than the 2nd...imo
Currently running: core2 @ 2.4ghz, 4gb ddr2 ram, radeon 4870 512mb. I wonder if I can get away with maxing the details at 1920x1080 (not counting AA)...
seems like you won't have too much trouble there. Pretty much the same setup as me except I have an old 7900GS and I'm looking to get a 5850 sometime soon but I might just wait to see how the nVidia cards turn out.
Not bad, the Asura engine has been pretty scalable in the past, I just hope they fix those damn framerate issues present in Shellshock 2 and Rouge Warrior! (which both use the same engine as AVP) Graphically the engine looks great, they just haven't optimized it well for even consoles!
I forgot these guys did Shellshock 2 and Rogue Warrior, WHY ARE WE LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS GAME AGAIN?
Because AvP seems to be the thing they can actually do well.
I was dreading seeing the requirements, especially after seeing some of the screenshots released, but I can now sleep easy knowing my old 8800GT will do the job fine. I'll just do what I normally do to ensure a high framerate, set everything to high then turn down particle effects and shadow detail, and boom! I'm hovering around 60FPS with any luck. Plus I'll have the demo to test performance. Does anyone know which engine it's running on?
Lol all the console gamers know sh!t and like making stuff up also 24" 1920 by 1080 > 40" 1920 by 1080 (24" crisper image every time higher DPI) My Configurations: Windows 7, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, 8GB System RAM, DirectX 11 compliant video card with 1GB GQDR5 ATi Radeon HD 5850
I have my PC running on a 30" monitor that supports resolutions the PS3 and Xbox360 could only dream of: 2560x1600 Moreover i just bought a 5970HD on the cheap and can hook it up to THREE 30" monitors together to play AVP or ANY other game out there. Can the consoles do this? BTW as many have mentioned, you can hook up your PC to ANY HD TV like a console and also use a PLETHORA of game pads that are wireless including the keyboardand mouse. Remeber almost all games on these consoles are [email protected] Quite a few are subHD.... You buy a $130 GPU and you can play ANY game except Crysis at [email protected]+ Spend $150+ and you are playing all your games at 1080p and some at 2560x1600. Name me 10 games on the PS3 or Xbox360 that run games in FULL [email protected]+ UPSCALLING does not count. Ohh...Most console games do not even run at 60 frames per second anyways....
Lol damn dude, that screen is sick, was looking at something similar on Newegg, not sure if I want to do something like that or an eyefinity setup, currently using a 40in LED Samsung, its nice, but its obviously not the best setup, 1920x1080 looks decent, i sit on a couch about 4-5 feet from the screen.
Real men play this game on the PC!
