dual layer DVD-rom. i didn't know that was mainstream? i tought it was for freaks that absolutetly and positively had to put more than 4.7 on a single disk.

there is however, 'dl' denoted on my dvd-drive. i guess that is 'dual layer'.

dual layer dvd writers are quite cheap now you can pick one up on amazon for £18 or arround the same as a standard dvd writer

And???

I don't see Bit-tech claiming this is a breaking news exclusive?

Hope Ubisoft has used the extra months to finetune the game for the PC version. Assasins Creed 1 was very playable but the official method for quitting the game still has me baffled.

You're.

More importantly, you forgot to mention that the game is $60. It seems like MW2 has set a precedent...

Not defending the higher than standard retail price but the game does include 2 DLC packs.

Wow this is a strange feeling. For one in my life my computer passes the recommended requirements....except for the GPU :( Oh well it's about on par with a 4770 I think so I'll be fine :)

Any idea what DRM it's using?

Ha my donkey's years old 939 pc still scrapes through the minimum specs! Although, if it wasn't for the overclock from 2GHz to 2.5GHz I'd be screwed. Definitely time for an upgrade - just need to water the money tree more!

Its an amazing game on the xbox, but I suspect it'll be using Drac DRM of some sort :\

Great to see that DLC will be included and a Black Edition will be available. My girlfriend was going to buy me the White Edition for PS3 but I don't have the console. Cool to see that I can grab a special edition for PC yeah, way to go!

Never thought I'd be complaining about DRM but I'm definately not buying this on PC, I'll just lend my cousins 360 copy. I can't be arsed with having to have different accounts for different publishers which would all need a different password. I'll have to pass :(

Will never purchase a game that REQUIRES a permanent connection to the Internet.
Especially if i have to join a "Social club" to be able to have save-games.....No, no and No.

I've found that recommended specs don't mean much, that's why i like a demo i need to see with my own eyes if it runs well or like crap before i going shelling out money.

The idea to stay connected to internet is all crap and would be beaten down by some crackers
