  1. Yeah, I’ll be on 360. My computer couldn’t run this, well it might be able to but certainly not very well.

  2. Sweeeeet Im covered. I should hopefully be able to max it out.

    2.4GHz dual
    2GB RAM
    10000RPM drive

  3. I’m not PSYCHED for Fallout 3 as some other people are, but then again I was never a Fallout fan – nor an Oblivion fan. But if they do Fallout 3 right, I might just pick it up…for 360. My PC is too pathetic to play anything but the Orange Box, so yeah.

  4. Intel Core 2 Duo processor – CHECK
    2 GB System RAM – CHECK
    Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 512MB RAM (NVIDIA 8800 series, ATI 3800 series) – CHECK

    But I’ll probably still play it on my 360.

  5. Eh. If only hard drives could be hooked to tv’s. INTERGRATE DAMNIT. O.o uhm yeah. I’ll probably play on my XBox. If I had the chance pc but..mines too idk..pc’s don’t feel like the gaming machines they are/should be. It’d be like playing halo on my pc. Kinda weird.
