True story: I actually bought my last PC specifically to play the original Crysis. Now that the minimum and recommended specs for Crysis 3 have been revealed it looks like I may have to finally upgrade!
Ah well, it's been a while. Maybe it's about time I sunk some money into PC gaming for a change. To be fair, it's not as if these required specs are completely crazy, just that my own PC is spectacularly old.
And the specs are...

Oh, and I thought it might be worth reposting that awesome Crysis 3 gameplay trailer just to remind myself, and everyone else, why it might be worthwhile upgrading.
