Nonsense Requirements

When I heard that Ghostbusters will have a new video game, I thought “good”. However I just saw the game for PC yesterday and I am just amazed how this game was ever published.

I haven’t play the game yet and I might never play the game, however I know for a fact that there will be a lot of people who can’t play the game. Just listen to this for the system requirements: Dual core processor, 2 GB RAM, 512 MB Shader 3.0 capable video card, 9 GB free hard drive space. Minimum graphic card for Nvidia is the Ge8400. That’s right; dual core with Ge8400 as the minimum requirements!

What kind of game is this? I know third-person shooter has a reputation of needing good systems to play but it is nonsense. I’m willing to say that 60-70% of the PC in the world will not be able to run this game. I hope developers know that there is a world recession on at the moment and no one is going to upgrade just to play a video game. Ge8400 as the minimum? Tell me that's not nonsense!

It's not nonsense. This game is meant for the rich and the elite, dude!

Too bad for the developers then because most people in the world are not rich or elite
