GTA IV PC: Exciting Specs Talk

A Shader Model 3.0 Serbian, yesterday

Via VG247, the official recommended system specs for the upcoming PC port of of Big Steal Car 4. Oddly, since their discovery yesterday, they’ve been pulled off the official Games For Windows site and replaced with a ‘Coming Soon’. Theories? Either they were wrong, it’s the notorious Rockstar info-chokehold at play again, or they’ve been taken down because the entire internet misinterpreted ‘recommended’ as ‘minimum’. Here’s what they were yesterday though.

OS: Windows XP SP2
Processor: Dual core processor (Intel Pentium D or better)
RAM: 2GB
Hard Drive: 18GB free hard disk space
Video Card: 512MB Direct3D 10 compatible video card or Direct3D 9 card compatible with Shader
Drive: DVD-ROM dual-layer drive

18 gig! 512Mb 3D card! And ‘shader’ what – 1, 2 or 3? No doubt the minimum spec will be less eyewatering, but if this recommended one is accurate, rather than an MS balls-up, it suggests this is perhaps one of those ‘pull lever to port 360 game to PC’ jobbies rather than something scalable to a wide range of systems.
