One more reason to stick with consoles

ars technica released a story that solidifies my belief that consoles are the way to go with games now a days. The story was in regards to the PC specs for Assassin’s Creed. I can’t believe what they are recommending when you compare it to what is in the Xbox 360!

Check out these specs Minimum/Recommended:

  • OS: Windows XP/Vista (only)
  • Processor:Dual Core 2.6GHz Intel or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ /Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or better
  • RAM: 2 GB / 3GB
  • Video Card: 256 MB DirectX 10.0–compliant video card /512 MB video card recommended (see supported list)*
  • Hard Drive Space: 12 GB
  • *Supported Video Cards at Time of Release:
    ATI RADEON X1300-1950 / HD 2000 / 3000 series
    NVIDIA GeForce 6600-6800 / 7 / 8 / 9 series

Hmm $300-400 console or $2000-$3000 computer. Easy decision for me. The last PC game I purchased was Half Life 2: Orange Box. I guess that will be my last PC game for a while.
