Bioshock PC hardware requirements revealed

BioShock PC Hardware Requirements Revealed
On the fence about which version of BioShock you'll be picking up? It's inevitable that you'll purchase the thing, believe me, it's just a question of whether your PC is up to the processing challenge. My underpowered PC doesn't quite make the cut, hovering right around the minimum system requirements which is wholly unacceptable, so it's going to be the Xbox 360 version-or, possibly, the PLAYSTATION 3 version, should 2K Games announce such a thing. Gamers looking to finalize their NewEgg orders, however, will want to read on to see what BioShock needs and wants from a hardware set up.

Well, now I know that which version I can play (Hint, its not pc). My good old computer can hardly run last year games and with this system requirements, I beleive that if I even put the Bioshock into my dvd-rom the thing will explode.

I know how you feel. My 2 1/2 year old Powerbook G4 is becoming very outdated and eventually obsolete. I will be playing the Xbox version but funny thing is, i think it would cost a hell of alot more then $400 to upgrade my computer to play these new games.

Nice, lower than i exected tbh. Ill toss a coin between PC and 360.

EDIT-: Thanks disagreers, i think your right, i won`t toss a coin ....... ill plumb for the PC version.

Honeal2g3909d ago
