There was a time when a new game from Epic meant saving up the thousand or so pounds it would cost to get a machine that could play it. That sounds so alien now, so ludicrous, that people were upgrading at such vast expenses just to play the latest, greatest PC game. But of course it was an investment in the many dozens of games that would follow, until the next time id released something. But now, thanks to cross-platform publishing, the PC is idling. We’re already so far ahead of the current gen console tech that we can spin our wheels and enjoy our latest games on two-year-old rigs, with the graphics card we bought at the time. Madness. And to prove this point, the Bulletstorm specs look positively pedestrian. They’re below.
Eurogamer’s giant-haired Rob Purchese brings the good news. To enjoy the game (not at its swishiest, of course) you’ll need:
1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon X2 processor
256MB NIVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS or ATI Radeon 2400 Pro
You could use your gran’s computer!
Meanwhile, here’s another of those very silly videos from CliffyB “CliffyB” CliffyB. It’s rather funny:
