I have my copy courtesy of a $68 Special including shipping from JB HF.

Well I have an I7, GTX680, 12GB memory and 4 x SSD in a RAID0, and I can't run with AA set to more than 2, but other than that it looks AMAZING. I am enjoying the game, it's very Just Cause 2 (One of my favourite games). I am only 2 hours in but so far a lot of potential. Not as much fun as say Borderlands2, but PLENTY to do and lots of different ways to do the same thing.

i got it yesterday too, for ps3 though, got home and turned it on, there was already an update, so that took a while, and then had to wait for some files to be installed to the hard drive, which also took a while, by the time those were done, i switched off the ps3, so hopefully tonight get to play it, as well as assassins creed 3 and hitman absolution.... soooooo many games to play

Agree it looks amazing!

Im running an i7 930 @ 4ghz and a sapphire 7850 Oc'd.
Its running everything on ultra, I also have the AA on 2 times (i didnt try it with higher then that, my mouse felt a bit laggy when i turned it higher so i didnt test it out in game)

One thing I found interesting is that when I ctrl-alt-del into task manager - windows showed memory useage at less then 2Gb.

Maby thats because I have a 2gb graphics card and its using more of that? who knows, it dosent appear to use much RAM at all though

and FRAPS reports between 35 and 60 fps (vsync on), I never noticed it drop below 30fps.

EDIT: theres been alot of talk about the game being optimised for AMD cards, wonder how true that is

Anyone noticed the Maori dialog?



FF to 1:49, 2:59, 3:44.

My guess is some Kiwi voice talent in there but some imitation as well.

Lol, I have my suspicions the poster of that youtube clip is playing under the influence of something or other.
