    Well no because you have to have a 64-bit cpu in order to use a 64-bit version of windows? Because if the article had your way that would mean that game recommended a 64-bit os with more than 4gb or Ram but because the cpu is 32-bit only, then neither would be possible?

    I believe those that will download the game at this time, will be the same people that already have pre-ordered the game.

    He's got a point, they should simply say that you need a x64 OS whit 4GB of memory or more since a lot of people still don't know they need a x64 OS to push to that amount of memory.

    Hi Ismael Salazar from San Diego California that had a x86 OS PC whit 8GB's of ram!

    I strongly believe, it's EA's job to test their new origin's mechanism. They wanna see how the known crackers will crack it, what it's going to happen and how they gonna defend the mechanism.

    Otherwise, many scenarios... Wherever they produced the disks, always there are a few faulty disks with just one small scratch. They can't sell it but it works... Someone got one etc... Or retailers.

    I hear that on DLing a game as a test drive. So many companies think that plenty of people just have oodles of money to sink into video games, but that's simply not the case. I myself haven't downloaded or bought any new (recent) games in years simply because it feels like the quality of games have gone down while the costs have gone up; RA3 for example seemed to be mostly a flop, and that in my eyes ruins the series for me and makes me not want to play the game just to keep my nostalgia engine in the green. It just seems also that companies are not realizing that making a game that barely 5% of people can play properly simply isn't good business sense. Why do you think the Sims 2 was so popular? It had relatively low requirements so that people that simply wanted to play the game could do so without worrying too much about performance problems. What happened to that kind of support?
  6. As of now there is no REAL crack so the game can not be started without a REAL working crack.

    Since when has it been a question of 'if' a triple A PC title will be leaked?!
  8. My Xbox 360 has bombed/broke 3 times so far since I purchased it brand new about 6 months after its first release. I will not be going back to a Xbox 360 or a PS3 any time soon. DirectX 11 is on the board and the games for it are coming fast. PC is back in the lead with the image quality and tight controls of mouse and keyboard. Steam has a tone of games for digital download 365 days a year and other companies are joining in. While I have to admit that pirating games on PC is bad, the games are expensive for what you pay.....BUT.....if the game is going to be REALLY excellent quality, triple A title, and a blast to play like BF3, Mass Effect 1, 2, & 3, Skyrim most people would want to pay the cost of the entry fee. Games like Rage for 60$ is a large let down and I don't know about anyone else but I feel ripped off. Make great games and people follow, make crappy cheap games and they feel pissed on and cheated out of their good hard earned cash. What is so damn hard about that equation?
