Midway’s PR must be playing some twisted game called “bad news, good news”. Their previous announcement was about the PlayStation 3 version of the game being delayed. Now come the PC game specs, which are definitely not as high as many feared:

Minimum System Requirements
– Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista
– 2.0+ GHZ Single Core Processor
– 512 MB of System RAM
– NVIDIA 6200+ or ATI Radeon 9600+ Video Card
– 8 GB of Free Hard Drive Space

Recommended System Requirements
– 2.4+ GHZ Dual Core Processor
– 1 GB of System RAM

– NVIDIA 7800GTX+ or ATI x1300+ Video Card
– 8 GB of Free Hard Drive Space

However, if you still think these system requirements are high, do take a look at what Crysis might demand from your system:

– CPU: Intel P4 2.8Ghz or AMD equivalent
– RAM: 1GB
– Video Card: 6800GT (256MB) or ATI/AMD Radeon 9800 Pro (256MB)
– HDD Space: 16GB
