One can’t help but notice that Assassin’s Creed definitely beats Crysis at least in two specs departments, namely RAM and HDD space. What’s worse, we’re talking about AC’s minimum specs vs Crysis’ recommended ones. Ubisoft’s game requires 2 GB RAM (3 GB recommended), the same amount required to run Crysis at full speed. And if you though that the latter has asking too much what it stated “12 GB free hard disk space”, well, think again: Altair ‘s demands are of “only” 16 GB. Our wild guess is that they need the extra 4 GB to build a stable for horses and a storage for armors.

But seriously speaking now, do keep in mind two things. First of all, these above listed specs aren’t official or final, so they will change to smaller figures in the near future. Second, if Ubisoft asks for state of the art gaming rigs, then there is a strong chance that they are actually working on something more than just a mere port.
