    Needs a lot of Hard disc space too.

    That can't be right. Maybe they recommend this for 3D playing.

    Hmm, requirements like that could mean that it's an unoptimized game pushed out the door too fast with lots of bugs......
    OR, the insane amounts of bloom and blur are the most taxing ever.

    They removed graphical settings? Ugh.

    I find it odd, even when they had the intention of putting GTX 590 that they put AMD 6970 instead of 6990.

    Gtx 590 and hd 6970 are in a completely different league, performance wise. Typo or a bad joke.

    This is real, and Gurus, you're not gonna believe this, it seems that those recommended system requirements are legit:banana: LMAO, and that most will have to lower graphics settings in order to play on lower graphics cards:pc1:
    DSO GAMING:

    Okay guys, I’m puzzled here. This is the first time I’ve seen a racing game requiring such a high-end GPU. Team 6 Studios have just revealed the system requirements for their upcoming arcade racer, FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction. And get this right; the team recommends a GTX590 and 20GB of free hard-disk space. Just… wow. A GTX590 GPU is required? So this game should have mind-blowing graphics, right? Well, to be honest, I haven’t seen anything from FlatOut 3 that justifies such high requirements.

    According to Team 6 Studios, publisher trailer – that is currently available for view - does not use the full maximum graphic levels / recommended hardware thus does not represent the best possible quality. So here is the one-million question; why they didn’t use the maximum graphic levels?

    Ronnie Nelis, CEO and Lead Designer for Team 6 Studios, revealed at the Steam forums that players will have to lower effect-detail (only causes the smoke-particles and such to be rendered in a lower resolution, what most games do by default anyway) and shadow quality (meaning you’ll have no shadow on the grass) in order to increase their performance.

    So, will FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction be a great looking racing game or an unoptimized mess? We’ll find out soon enough.

    Here are the game’s system requirements!


    Minimum System Requirements:

    Operating system:Windows XP
    Processor: Intel 2 GHz dual core CPU
    Memory: 2 GB

    Hard disk space: 16 GB
    Sound: DirectX compatible Onboard Soundcard
    Supported Input Devices: Keyboard, Joystick, XBox Controller, Gamepad, Microsoft Controller for Windows
    Additional Notes: Also supports Razer Hydra.

    Recommended System Requirements:

    Operating system:Windows 7
    Processor: Intel Quadcore
    Memory: 4 GB
    Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 / AMD Radeon HD 6970
    Internet:Broadband Internet Connection

    from the look of the screenshots and videos the graphics look rubbish.

    way too much contrast+cartoonish colours.:bang:

    edit: oh, and the resolution of textures are as low as :puke2:
