    Specs

    Man, the spec requirements they list on this are nuts. 1.5 Ghz G4 or G5. I knew it was intense, butů I guess my trusty ol' dual 1 Ghz G4 w/Nvidea Ti4600 may not play this puppy. Though I hope they offer a doanloadable demo pretty soon after release. I'll give it a try and see.

    we're in the same boart. I'm on a Dual 1ghz G4 with a ATI 9800 Pro.

    I hate to say it, but if you dont have the processor power, chances are you wont be able to run the game! Graphics will not make up for what the processer needs to run.

    specs

    if the specs just say a 1.5GHz G4 or G5, then it may still run on a dual 1.0 system better than a single 1.0 system. I was under the impression that Doom was multi-processor aware.

    Of course, I'd just wait for someone else to try it out on a 'lesser' system. I'm sure the gaming sites will have some info for you all.

    Um... macnn?

    If the program is available for preorder from Aspyr, why send people to Amazon.com unless you want to log some hits for some affiliate program? Are you THAT desperate for money, guys? You could at LEAST be honest about it...

    Aspyr links to Amazon for all their orders.

    wouldn't?

    Wouldn't you hate it if they released a game that was so-so so that people with systems that were 2 years old could play it, as a result, your gameplay was lackluster and boring, even though you spent good money on a new system?

    What about a year from now when you are still playing that game... it's even that much more obsolete.

    I used to be discouraged by methods of game devs requiring the latest specs, but after getting a new system, I really want to take advantage of my new power and speed.

    Hopefully spending 50 on a game will use that power.
    Sorry that you're at a stage i was at a few years ago...

    See what I mean?

    Oh, and monstermind, tons of massive companies use Amazon as their sole online commerce solution. Calling a (relatively) smaller company like Aspyr 'cheap' for using Amazon for a cost-saving e-commerce solution is short-sided and viciously misguided.

    I agree 100%, Luke.
    If you want to be on the cutting-edge, it's gonna cost you.
    For all you whiners, play PacMan.
    I'll just sell my older Mac and buy a new one - see how easy that is?
