According to a poster on gaf those are the minimum requirements.

I have the game and I can honestly say the requirements are insane.

I'm Running a Dual Core 3.4,1.5 Gigs of DDR2 533 and my one weak link is a 6800gt video card and it runs like ass. even when not on high settings and on what i consider very mediocre resolution.

6800GT has crap SM3.0 performance. Anyhow, he should try 1024x768 with no AA and AF and pay SPECIAL attention to texture resolutions and shadow detail as the GT has only 256MB of memory (running it like a card that has 512MB is gonna cause pain). Also turn off HDR as performance is craptastic with FP16 on NV40.

SM3.0 a system requirement? That's some shoddy PC development.. especially for a game like this. Who are they marketing it for here, exactly?

Suckers

The performance is apparently TERRIBLE even with a monster rig, tiny draw distance as well that affects chase mission! Great stuff!

Well the thing is, the cel-shaded Spidey game they did was pretty good in the end. The pre-release version of that I saw had issues but it turned out alright. They certainly nailed the swinging down.

I can spend a long time swinging around a decent representation of New York, but I can't spend £50 for that alone. We'll see. Movie first :D

It's easy to understand, it's down to crap development and shoddy coding.

lol i started thinking the same. If Spiderman 3 requires this much then everyone looking forward to crysis can pretty much forget about it :D

Yea like jolli said though most likely horrible pc development.
