    It will be, they would never miss out the pc market, expect it 6 months after the console release as usual.

    Given the recent 6 month delay to the console versions this does mean october 2008 unfortunately.

    (I know its slightly off topic for this forum and im sorry for this but...)

    Have any PS3 games yet been made for PC???

    I was just wondering if the system requirements would be outrageous!

    The thing I don't get is... if they are making a PS3 version then a Mac version should be at least as easy to create as a Windows version because the PS3 uses OpenGL.

    Nothing above modern games now. Probably a 8600+ card, at least a CD CPU, and lots of ram. ;)

    Wow what Sony exec. brainwashed you? The truth is current gen consoles are inferior in power to modern PCs. Yes games on the PS3 (and more on the 360) have been released on the PC as well and they are better on the PC. No the system requirements are not outrageous.

    It is not that simple. The hardware is different (cell=/=x86) and not even the API is the same on both platforms.

    I hate to say it, acearchie, but the problem is is that the game isn't even out yet for any platforms. Speculation on the PC requirements right now would be guesswork at best, misleading and deceptive at worst.

    But surely arent there other PS3 games out there currently out on PC.

    If we found the system requirements for one of those wouldnt they be pretty similar?

    THanks
