  1. LOL, My 6YO build his own rig that will run it. So, not that big of a deal.
    My problem is I dont know which platform I want to buy it on, am I going to want to lounge on the couch, or sit up through some hard core gaming ;)

  2. well the AMD Radeon HD 7870 was released in 2012, try running fallout 4 in your playstation 3 …
    so …
    yeah master race after 3 years I still can play decent games

  3. “Us console losers really have nothing to worry about. So who’s the master race now?”

    Still PC :P We’ll get mods, better graphics, and of course nvidia surround / amd eyefinity. looking forward to FO4 in surround <3

  4. I’ve no worry’s at all my duel quad Xeon 5450 my 32gb ecc ram and my dual nvid gtx 780 should be able to run it just fine and if it can’t then will just grab it on xbone its not all about the master race we all gamer’s in the end

  5. I don’t think anyone who has a remotely modern gaming PC is going to have much trouble getting this to run. I have a 6 year old system with a 4 year old video card and I’m going to be just fine lol.

  6. The recommended requirements aren’t exactly accurate for what you need to max it out and hit 60 fps. Typically those are still short of being able to play it at its best at higher resolutions. Notice the recommended requirements never say the screen resolution it says to run that gtx780 at. That makes all the difference. The PC version will still look better than the console version of a system powerful enough to run it at max and a high resolution. I turn to the game Witcher 3 as my example for the PC version looking better than the console version.

    Buy it on whatever system you like. I like the fact that on PC I don’t have to worry about not being able to play it after I have bought it a few years from now. You know Reverse compatibility lacking on consoles or the risk of them lacking on next generation consoles. Plus prefer running everything at max graphics settings.

    ANd if a controller is the reason why you don’t like the PC version of games. Most big name games have controller support or mods that allow it. You can connect and xbox controller to a PC. The logitech F710 controller works on the PC just like the xbox does. And it has legacy support to allow you to play non controller support games with it. And there’s even a free/easy to set up software for the PC to allow you to use your PS4 controller on your PC call inputmapper. It allow you to use your PS4 controller for controller support games and map keyboard and mouse controls to each button for games that doesn’t have controller support. I’ve used both the Logitech F710 and the PS4 controller on my PC and they both work great. Plus lets not forget the Steam controller releasing soon.

    Connect an HDMI cable to your TV like and bam… TV sized monitor. For me I sit in my recliner and my 55 TV is my only monitor I use on my PC. PC becomes like a console but without its limitations.

    I like my PS4 but exclusive games are a bit annoying which is the only reason I have one. If I hadn’t switched to PC years ago I probably would still prefer consoles.

    I build my own PC’s so itis cheaper that way is another reason why I prefer PC. Everyone knows PC is where innovation begins and they have far better graphics and processing power if you’ve build a PC that is really powerful. But it really comes down to what you can afford and what you prefer. But the excuses of why someone prefers the console over TV now only come down to affordability and exclusive titles or personal preference. All over reasons no longer exist as the PC can be setup to work just like a console.

    At this point using a controller as your reason for preference of the console over the PC version is pointless.

    With that said this Playstation 4 will probably be the last console I buy. I am tired of not being able to play old games I own on the new console because they didn’t want to make it reverse compatible. With limited HDMI ports on my TV and I refuse to have to switch cables to be able to play old consoles when it’s a simple firmware update to allow old games you already own to be played. That’s my reasoning. Plus VR coming soon. At least I wont have to worry so much about limited selection of VR support games on the PS4 as opposed to Oculus on the PC where there are already a lot of VR games. And modders making games VR compatible. Plus I won’t have to buy a new VR headset with every new console. Honestly reverse compatibility is a big thing for me. I do sometimes go back and play old games. It is probably the main reason I buy the PC version of games over the console version.

    Get whichever you version you like its all personal preference at this point with the exception of exclusive titles and the initial investment in a decent computer. Though you can build a PC capable of playing every game out at max settings running at 60fps at 1080p resolution for less than $1000 now if you know what to look.
