I thought the min and max requirements for installation size is supposed to be almost the same. But that's a whopping 15 GB difference.

Either way it would be interesting to see what this game has to offer in terms of graphics and game-play.

Those are quite intense system requirements for a game that looks quite unimpressive visually to me.

Seems like everyone is trying to outdo each other on the crazy system specs these days, just take a look at Watchdogs! I hope that this isn't a ploy to simply cover up poor optomisation on the PC by hiding behind crazy requirements...

Judging by consoles specs , it's pretty possible and wouldn't even be a tiniest surprise. Those are almost double specs of "next-gen" consoles but we're yet to see if they perform the same as PC.
