Some good points said there fella’s, here’s my views on the subject; To me the higher specs released state that the game has had a major re-work, which it most definitely needed. Higher hardware demands, equals more graphical eye candy and better audio. Making the player experience much more rewarding, better fun and greater immersion into the game. I feel IW takes a lot of criticism for its engine mechanics and graphics. An area where the game needed work to bring it in-line with other games, as well as the advanced tech now available. So hence why the new upgrades will make the game run better, smoother and feel a whole lot more immersive. Making it more pleasurable to play and giving it an addictive feel to the user. If 40-50GB HDD space is required then that means more content, ergo much more fun and extra playtime. With more modes to play the boredom factor should take a lot longer to kick in?
Ghosts has the potential to become the all-time best seller and fans new all-time favorite, with an extended lifespan yet to be realised. With it still being played daily by thousands of loyal fans for many years to come? Just like CoD 4 is today, some 6 years after its first release. Add in all the customisation and new game modes making it a challenge day-in, day-out. Plus the extra fun of Squads mode, adding a new dimension to the series, coupled with a more rewarding and competitive edge.
The PC is the ultimate platform and will always out-perform any console. All of the new tech added and future technological advancements like G-Sync, Mantle and 4K gaming will only push its elite status even higher. So the future is extremely bright on the tech side, all we need now is for the developers to recognise that and build games specifically for each individual platform. With specific features added on a platform by platform basis. For the PC this means more basic in-game settings and custom tun-ability for graphics, play styles, adjustable system tweaking for individual hardware abilities. As well as must have features like dedicated servers’ for low lag, with a server browser. Mod Tools, Rentable servers with user control so that Admins/Moderators can keep the peace. As then and only then, will we see a return to the glory days of Call of Duty as a true PC game? Ultimately that’s the question which will always remain and one in which we hardcore #PCGamers will debate for years to come!!!
