I know it sucks for people with slow/capped internet, though.
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.
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.
