I don't like the new trend of 256 graphics card being the minimum. What happened to 128?




Either way is that brother none on the bull?

Probably a result of it being a console game, primarily. Not saying the game would have been more graphics intensive if it had been PC exclusive, but it certainly helps determine system requirements when you got the limited hardware of a console determining what you can put out.

I wish they were hitting those performance caps more often. But unfortunately console are slow and shitty.

And to Snake : A piece of shit in high resolution with anti aliasing is STILL a piece of shit.

PC and consoles are finally going neck and neck for graphics w/out slowdown or rendering issues, from the little I've read about it - so PC cards will continually try to stay a step ahead of the 'next-gen' consoles to keep their edge
