    I'm not an expert but that sounds like the laziest console port ever. Recommended 4GB of VRAM if you want to play at 1080p?

    I wonder how companies interpret weaker PC sales with things like this - do they say "we didn't put enough work into the PC version" or do they say "PC market is dying" ?

    Laughable. The only reason for the aspect ratio is that they have to render less. Designed for Consoles.

    Welcome to "next-gen" console gaming, where you're still limited to 30FPS and still can't use 1080p.

    Thanks, I'll pass. This stuff is why people don't buy those PC ports. The "best experience" nonsense are just just platitudes some marketing droid is spouting out of his mouth.

    30FPS is unbearable, 60fps is the min standard and even that is not enough. Limiting FPS on PC is NOT fine, never should happen.

    I thought standard for movies is 23.397, why they didn't lock it to this value? This would make more sense. 30 fps is too much for movie.


    A bit more serious... some companies should decide what they are making: games, movie-like games, or movies? And they should post in description of their product what it really is.

    And another time consoles limit games for PCs. The explanation of why it need's 4GB VRAM shows how little they think about how a gaming PC works in terms of optimization, since I bet the minority of gamers has 4GB of VRAM.

    That almost reads like "we don't make it use less, buy it or leave it, PC user". Then it's a leave I guess.

    The comments in this thread make me happy.

    Hopefully after release, we'll be able to find out if its a fixable mess or even a complete 'not even steam sale' purchase.

    I just dont understand, why pay people to work on a pc version, if your not even going to do it properly? oh yeah..money, nvm.

    Why so? Because we don't support the dev's attitude of "I can do whatever I want, the stupid PC community will buy it anyway"? :D

    I wonder if it'll be the same as with, was it NFS: Rivals, that had a 30fps cap as well, and when you disabled the cap, the game ran at 2X speed. Seems unlikely though, as they probably wouldn't provide any way to get rid of the cap then.

    Well, I'm going to save money and not buy this game at least, in any case.

    Exactly.

    Far too often im seeing the ol 'no more pre-ordering! im sick of getting broken games' and then comes along an EA or Ubi announcement and its 'pre-ordered two years in advanced! Cant wait, hopefully this time they've fixed the performance, i mean i know that the last 10 games have been nothing but terrible ports, but this time, this! time' and then when you try to remind people of the developer and publishers previous history and shoddy work, you get called a hater.

    4GB VRAM and only 4GB RAM, what a joke, they aren't even trying to hide the fact it's a straight port.

    Add to the fact that it's not even actually 1080p and is only rendering 817x1080 pixels which is less than 720p and you realise just how ridiculous it is. It's the equivalent of Shadow of Mordor making the minimum requirement for 1080p 6GB VRAM with no option to change texure resolution.

    This console parity $#!+ is going to drive me to quit gaming.

    I will never pay $599+ for a console whose games will never be supported in the next generation. People are so stupid they are paying for higher res remakes.

    On PC you just set the resolution higher on new hardware and the game just runs better, no extra cost 'hd' pc remake.

    If the pc version is going to be played with console issues I will just give up.

    Vote with ur wallet, when game is released to PC, it MUST BE ENHANCED with PC optimization and options, we are not some close console that we have no control over it.

    Dude, have you seen the Sleeping Dogs 'HD' remake. Going by JonasB's screens, its exactly the same has the original release but the HD textures arent an addon.

    Pathetic really. Theres two exact copies of the game on Steam, but ones called HD, should be counted as fraud or something.

    and they wonder why nobody buys that type of game, uses illegal ways to play them, maybe to see and try.

    look at alien isolation and shadow of mordor, good pc optimized games, bought both of them. running like charm, no errors. this game, well - uh - you don`t see a cent from me guys.
