[Atomic Magazine] BF3 System Requirements Clarification - Page 7

post #61 of 134
This kinda reminds me when DOOM3 came out, and Carmack said that no PC (then) could play on max settings. OT though, I bet Mr. Bach was probably noting a PC within normal range ($800-$1600) that couldn't play it on FULL. Dual GTX 590s, Dual 6990s, TRI GTX 580's...even the ASUS Matrix will rape that thing at full. IMO, he's just hyping up the game. I wouldn't be surprised if he was told to say that by some higher-up in order to (perhaps) drive GPU sales for the game.

"Oh crap! BF3 is coming out! I need to drop $300 on a new card!" That's the mentality of most people (I'm not talking about people here, but the general rational thinking of kids/people who play PC games.)

Maxed out to me is exactly what it sounds like. All settings to absolute maximum. None of this "oh I don't consider AA & AF part of max settings" nonsense.

Unfortunately very few have delivered what they promised. DICE keep proclaiming that they will be all about the PC version when all I read is how they're gunning to overtake MW3 (and sales numbers being the priority of course), which is going to ignore the PC market anyway or just leave it as an afterthought. For now I'm still somewhat skeptical about the PC version of this game and what it will be like.

If they can pull 256 player maps without lag, I'm not overly concerned with maxing graphic settings.

Edit: didn't pc versions destroy the console with BBC2? By far.. sold more then all the consoles combined.

If thats what you think maxed out is you better start upgrading, and thats not a bad thing.

Maxed out to me is all settings and AF. AA on the other hand changes from game to game, but usually I like to be able to tweak the settings until I find an acceptable frame rate with the most eye candy the sytem will handle. Just Cause 2 and Metro 2033 come to mind. Those games allow that.

Well, it is possible you'll get lied to and upgrade for nothing. ( Shhh Crysis 2) Even if your not lied to, a certian company might fail to update the games actual DX version until the last possible minute. Yeah, people here know better by now.
