I wonder if it was too late for them to take advantage of the extra core Microsoft opened up for developers on the XO? PC mustard race are going to be lucky when this title finally drops.

Well I'd need a new gfx card and psu to run that lol and since my budget eludes to neither of those due to hard drive failure I'm glad I'll be getting on console lol. The game itself to date looks and sounds great.
