In Gameplayer's news article on the Crysis spec announcement they pick up on something interesting. The recommended specs do not point to Vista or Directx 10. They go on to analyze what this might mean for Microsoft's struggling OS.
well, when the operating system occupies 1 gb of ram, and the recommended amount of ram is 2gb, most computers bought today only have 1gb of ram anyways, so the OS will be eating at the available resources of the game. makes sense
I don't recommend Vista for anything. That's a dog of an OS.
this is total BS, every interview I have seen, for highest quality you need Vista and DX10. And in recent gamespot interview Yerli said DX10 on Vista will perform better than DX9(on the same settings, eg high)
Yeah I thought the same thing. So why not recommend Vista and Directx 10. Isn't the idea of recommended specs to suggest the rig you should play the game on. They made a point of pointing out Directx 9 in min... weird. Perhaps just an oversight?
ITS THE FREAKING RECOMMENDED SYSTEM people look to deeply in this, try to use some logic, the game is played on two levels. 1. is the DX9 level, so they would still recommend XP for DX9 users, and for DX10 users vista
Why would they do this? The only way to truely enjoy Crysis graphics is by DX10 and Vista. Well, not that important for me because unless they release a console version of Crysis, I won't be able to play it any time soon.
ill need to see how this runs on dx10 with my rig....ive got a high end rig, but ive heard rumours that it still may not run great with high settings, and that it will need a quad core... but these rumours are prob based on the beta, so we will see come release day
I just bought a 17" inspiron for when I have to program out in the field and the first thing I asked them to do was wipe that piece of dung off the HDD and put a fresh copy of XP on it. There's a reason why he's saying this, in other words games run worse on DX10. MS is starting to slip bigtime, then again when were they ever good.....lol.
Min Specs: Windows XP or Windows Vista Recommended: Windows XP / Vista vista not recommended? where? vista is the only way you can get dx10 and 4.0 shaders, so this article has no sense.
