    Hey all, just curious about the above question. I have a 360 I could play it on, but if it's good on the MBP I'd go for it. Anyone?

    Pentium 4 2.8 GHz or equivalent, 1024 MB RAM, 12 GB hard disk space, DirectX 9.0-compliant sound card, 256 MB GeForce 6800 or Radeon X700 or equivalent with hardware T&L and PS, DirectX 9.0c April edition, Internet activation required (via STEAM subscription).

    thats minimum requirements i think..

    but most likely high reso and medium to high settings.

    I installed the demo on my MBP (first-gen, X1600, several times slower than the new MBP's video card) and it worked just fine, definitely much better than on a 360/PS3 (I downloaded the demo on my PS3 as well).

    PC is the superior version and your new MBP will be more than capable of playing the game properly at possibly max settings at full resolution (depends on your FPS tolerance), it's not very demanding and the 9600GT is a very capable video card, even in its mobile form.

    You can yell at me all you want if it doesn't work well :)

    if the x1600 can handle it fine I'm guessing the nvidia 9400m is good too

    I tried the demo on max res and max settings and it ran very well and looked great.
