Looks suspiciously like its going to end up being a console port in the long run ¬.¬

Recommend graphics card is a 5850 - I doubt this is just a "console port"

Yeah because the 5850 is definatly in all the consoles and was out 5 years ago when they were released.

Moving on, that's a pretty high bar to hit when it comes to it! I'm seriously going to need to look at new graphics cards by the end of summer me thinks!

Well there is always the poor console port option a la GTA4. This is the lowest gfx card they can get it to work on with out spending any time on the actual port... Man i'm getting cynical.

Recommending a DX11 card means DX11 support, right?

Owch, soon the recommended specs will be making my 5870 and 560Ti look like crap :(

Any one know how effective it's quad core support will be?

Recommended specs sound decent, looks like I will have to boot with my overclocked profile to play properly ;)

GTA was not a poor console port.

surely the minimum system spec is more reflective of a console port!!!!

Urg, new GPU for Pete :( I don't want to spend money on that though...

It unsettles me that Squeenix's trailer makes it look like Metal Gear Solid: 2027.

It's reflective of an engine that scales well. The recommended spec tells you a lot more about how much extra work they put in engine wise to create effects/high res textures purely for the PC market. This knee jerk reaction to console ports is ridiculous anyway. Here's an idea, see if the game is fun before dooming it based on which was the lead dev platform.

Surely how it plays is more important original Deus Ex looked dated for its time but was still brilliant.

Hmmm Core 2 Quad is a little broad. The older ones would be a bit of a bottleneck for a 5850.

So its finally time to upgrade from my Q6600, and Geforce 8800GT?

This is gonna be a right pain to run in Eyefinity I bet then.

The 335m in my M11x is currently rocking in a corner at those specs.

Poor little thing won't know what hit it.

My ULV Core 2 Duo is coming up a bit short as well but a quick pin mod / PLL fix via SetPLL should solve that issue.

Desktop should run it fine though. Looking forward to it.

hummm, no internet requirement. Hopefully this is because there is no need for online activation rather then they just didn't produce a full spec list!

I wonder if the consoles will render it to 1920x1200 at 60fps. Then again, I suspect my outfit (GTX 470, i7 950) won't either.

Just bought a 5770 this year, so It looks like I'll be picking this up on the 360 instead.
tad2008 4th May 2011, 23:26 Quote
Sounds like they are doing a Crytek and telling us we need to buy better hardware to play the game, even thou the majority will have older cards and be able to run it perfectly fine on medium settings and still be suitably impressed with the overall graphics quality. It's a shame they don't mention at what resolution the 5850 is suited for.

is it just me that gets a "Ghost in the shell" vibe from this?

The pc version was terrible performance wise.

Definitely. Blader Runner meets GITS meets Crysis meets Splinter Cell meets MGS meets...you get the picture. Which means, it should be pretty goddamn amazing.

And yeah, a 5850 as 'recommended' . What about the 4xxx or the 2xx GPUs becoming the 'standard' recommended card needed? Maybe this'll be the new Crysis.

I don't think so, I belive it is slower than hd 5850
Pete J 5th May 2011, 18:42 Quote
Yeah, a 5870 M = 5770.
frontline 5th May 2011, 19:05 Quote
If a 2000 series card is the minimum and a 5850 recommended, there's a good chance a 5770 will still run it well, albeit with some of the settings dropped to medium, at low to mid resolutions.

Minimum specs don't seem to be like they were in the old days, where it basically meant you could load the game, see the menu screen and then watch the screen update at 5 fps. Generally a game is still playable now, even if you have to drop all the settings to low.

Uhhmmm. All good, all good. I am sure this game will help wipe away bad memories of Crysis 2, etc.!

Keep an eye on the Deus Ex HR Twitter/FB page as they are releasing PC specific information this week. So far I've seen a reworked UI and control system for the PC so it looks like they have been going in the direction of just not making it a port. Hopefully it will be great!
