So I go into best buy today asking when guitar hero is coming out for PC.....He told me tomorrow but he had some in the back and I could get it if i wanted. I was all pumped.....Then I got the box and saw the requirements PC MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: * Operating System: Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista * CPU Processor: Intel Pentium D (Dual Core) 2.8GHZ or AMD Athlon 64 3500+ * Memory: XP - 1 GB RAM, Vista – 2GB RAM * Hard Disk Space: 5.1 GB + 1GB Swap File * Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card * Video Card: 3D Hardware Accelerator Card Required – 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible 128 MB Video Memory * Video Card (ATI): Radeon X800 * Video Card (Nvidia): Geforce 7600 * Media Required: 4X DVD-ROM drive * Windows XP/Vista compatible mouse and keyboard with latest drivers * Guitar Hero 3 Official PC Guitar Controller This product does not support Windows 98/ME/2000/NT/XP x64/Vista x64. MULTIPLAYER REQUIREMENTS: * Internet(TCP/IP) play supported * Internet play requires a broadband connection RECOMMENDED SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: * Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHZ or AMD Athlon Dual Core 4400+ * 256 MB 3D Hardware Accelerator Card * Video Card (ATI): Radeon HD 2600 * Video Card (Nvidia): Geforce 8800 GT * 2 GB RAM I think this is a bit ridiculous and I dont understand why the requirements are so high. I know my system is old but I still expected to be able to play this game w/o any trouble. Has any one tried the PC game w/ below min specs? I was tempted just to buy it to see what would happen but I am pretty far off the min specs. I have piano teaching software that I hook a full size keyboard up to the PC and that program requires basically nothing for requirements. It does not have any graphics so to speak but it still gives you a score based on your timing / mistakes. I was just shocked and highly disappointed. If anyone tries this game on an old system let me know.
