What does the American dream mean today?
For Niko Bellic fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape from his past. For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity. As they slip into debt and get dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

• New high resolution technology brings Liberty City to life with even more stunning graphical detail
• Expanded multiplayer will require even more strategy and skill to come out on top
• Match Filtering allows you to pick your favorite multiplayer options and then instantly find online matches that fit
• Record gameplay clips and edit them together with a variety of options using the Video Editor and upload via the Rockstar Social Club
• Optimized for PC controls and Xbox 360 controller

2gb ram? That's not high for you? Then what is?

On-Topic: It seems that i finally got a reason to work for a new PC.

Still, latest games created require more and more of your system anyway. I'll be buying this game shortly and I'll see if my system can handle it. Quite a shame there is no demo for me to test out.

I wonder if it will become the new PC performance proving game. I mean, if a PC can play this game at full detail, then it can run any current game with no problems.
But why does it need XP SP3, afaik it didn't add anything that could affect a game. I might be wrong, though...

wasn't it released already?
For the consoles, yes. But not for the PC.

Might be an excuse to update to SP3.

The PC version is certainly much prettier. They always do neat enhancements to the PC version. <3 Rockstar.

Including modifications, patches and addons. You can't do those things for the console versions.

As long it doesn't has a keyboard, a mouse and hardware upgrade options (ram, video card, etc). I don't see it as a computer :).

If your system can't handle it, just give the game to me. If not, I'll just buy it when I get my next paycheck

The 360 version has already been patched, also DLC content has been confirmed (exclusive?) though you're right about the mods.

If I had a decent rig, I'd pick up the pc version, but it's nice to pop in a disc and be able to play a new game with no trouble.
