    Q6600, check. 4GB RAM, check. 8800GTX, check.

    Apparently, my aging and venerable gaming rig can play Crysis 2

    of course, whether it ever will or not is another matter entirely...

    Am I the only one worry that the min spec hasn't moved on? Could be indication of a console port?

    Or perhaps they learnt from they learnt from the first time round and have actually optimised the graphics engine instead of just looking at saying upgrade your gfx card...

    Re: News - EA and Crytek announce Crysis 2 system reqs

    i'm hoping i'll be able to run this at 5760x1200 with my 2GB 5870................

    i do have a 1090T at 3.6GHz and 8GB of memory, but it may not be enough to compensate for the lack of GPU grunt.

    I've just been shock by some recent releases - Because the console are so far behind current PC tech they just aim for the lowest common denominater.

    Re: News - EA and Crytek announce Crysis 2 system reqs

    The new CryEngine is, as I understand it, designed to be very portable, and to be more efficient than the old one, so it makes sense for the reqs to not go up

    These aren't comparable to the minimum requirements for Crysis - they are comparable to the recommended requirements, as it says in the article.
