One game I won't download for sure. 6 hours to download at 2.5mbps?! Plus I am capped at 120gb per month!

It's interesting this thread hasn't been filled by CoD and Activi$ion hate. But rather understanding and somewhat acceptance? I wonder if it has anything to do with EA and Ubisoft looking way worse biggrin.gif

I can't see a i3 and a GTS 450 playing any first person shooter game at good quality with decent in game graphics settings.
I like all my games maxed in settings.

Probably depends on the company's point-of-view. Maybe a combo of Medium/Low settings @ 30fps is what they go by for the recommended specs. Sometimes we might forget how easy it is to run certain games after turning a few settings down. I always play games maxed as well, but my friend, not really a huge gamer, picked up a cheap laptop with a 8400M-GS in it, and you'd be surprised what he can run after dropping the res a notch or two and putting all the graphics settings to Medium.

It's only a matter of time, unfortunately.

Personally, I think it's good that they're including uncompressed audio at the expense of size, assuming that's actually the case. Games have been growing with the times. 1TB drives are a normal thing now. Why not include higher-quality audio, among other things, to take advantage of what's out there? I know it sucks for people with slow/capped internet, though.

When Max Payne 3 came out on four DVDs, I thought it was Rockstar making a mess, but apparently that's perfectly fine now, because you can just include 1 DVD and let the user download the rest. On my parents' connection, it would take me over 13 hours to download this game and that's not accounting for all the time the connection would be used for other things. Sure, now I live in a place where I can get tons of bandwidth, but lots of people still can't get a proper connection because of where they live.

 

Ahhhh what..?

 

 

First, a 1GB hd is about $60 bucks & secondly you can always just go to the store ad BUY the game, instead of downloading it. Todays kids are so use to steam they have no actual game collection, its all e-fake stuff. Same with their music collection...  all e-fake.

I swear these devs are being paid off by HDD makers to make these games so uncompressed and bloated. There is no other logical explanation for games like COD and Titanfall taking up that much drive space.

And 6GB ram MINIMUM again? Lol okay Activision. We already caught you out on this less than a year ago, did you think we'd all forget about Ghosts not actually using anywhere near 6GB but still putting an artificial block on launching the game? It's like Activision thinks that putting up fake spec requirements is going to trick PC gamers into thinking its actually a respectable PC title that they put effort into.

So true!

Remember when Album art used to be actual Art on the Album, and not a little jpeg that shows when your song plays?

I about flipped when my grandson brought over Shadow of Mordor and it had 4 maybe 5 DVD discs in the case, it also took 40gb of disc space for the install, windows 10 and SOM was all that would fit on a 60gb SSD

A 1 TB HDD fits about 25 games at 40 GB each which isn't really an unusual size for current gen multi-platform games. That's pathetic. And you're limited to a single 2.5", which currently tops out at 2 TB, in consoles and most laptops.

Steam seems to download instead of installing from disk, even if you have the disk in the drive. So if you try to install CoD, a Steamworks game, from your disk, it defaults to downloading instead. At least that's what it did when I bought Black Ops 2.

The PS4 and XBone have been bashed by PC gamers since day one (mainly bashing the performance), but now they are complaining about PC system requirements. lachen.gif

While I don't like bad console ports, I think that many OCN users need to understand that the performance gap between consoles and computers have narrowed again and to maintain the difference in quality between console games and PC games, the hardware requirements for PC's need to go up.
The reason that most games released in the past few years had a Core 2 Duo and a 8800GT as minimum requirements is because that was a little bit above the minimum that could beat consoles. The PS4 has a GPU that's more powerful than a HD 7850, 8GB of blazing fast RAM and an 8-core CPU. Soon you are going to see an i7 920 + HD 7950 system with 8GB of RAM as the minimum hardware requirements. Of course, the requirements won't go up that fast, so 6GB of RAM is just the first step.

TL;DR: Times change, game requirements go up, get over it.sozo.gif

ok grandpa,

you do realize most physical copies just comes with a steam/origin/uplay key for your DRM account, right?

I also had to install The Evil Within on 4 DVD discs, all of which still required about ~20GB of download thereafter. It's a nice option for pppl with slow internet and/or bw caps but that was a major pain for me /1stworldproblems

I've no idea what's your problem with digital contents...it's the way of the future and you better get used to it

before you say 'lol 14 yo cod player'...i've been playing cs since the WON days...hint hint some of us have no problems adapting to new standards.
