I don't understand the resistance to supporting laptop chipsets. The makers should push publishers to support them, you'd see more 'just console' gamers giving PC games a try if they performed better on the laptop they probably own.

Desktops are for nerds.

The problem is, that they are so shitty. It requires a lot of effort to support good performance on these low end machines, and at the same time support high-end effects. You need to have the game running without certain features supported, and that is sometimes not worth doing - you end up with worse graphics than older games, but still with high CPU demand. It's just not at good experience on laptops.

Also - it's not like it won't run on low-end. I think it's fair to say, that if you are running min. requirement, then the game is a less optimal solution. Perhaps people with laptops will buy the console version instead?

I also think the laptops are to blame, and especially intels crappy onboard solution. The hardware is so poor, yet consumers think they can play games on them.

Yeah! Consoles allow everyone to have the same user experience, and play all games, regardless of what hardware you own! It's all the same right out of the box!

Except here...
Or with games for this...
Or this...
Different user experience? Maybe
Definately!

It's a different level entirely from PC hardware variation, but there are console games with hardware 'requirements' beyond what you get with the box. There pretty much always have been.

Welp this shouldn't be an issue for me.
I just built a brand spankin new work station fully decked the fuck out for all my motion graphics needs. This bitch has 8 cores in total- not including hyper threading. Its basically one of those mac pros but with better insides and way cheaper.

I had these system requirements 2 years ago.Still haven't felt the need to upgrade yet again as all games still run great.

I understand the need for Laptop chipsets to be supported, but laptops are having a HUGE problem as of late that a-lot of the desktops (prebuilt) had about 5-6 years ago in that one shitty part bottlenecks the entire computer. Sure it's the latest greatest processor and sure it's got 4 gigs with a great clock speed and a decent video card. But guess what, your motherboard has a shitty FSB and your typically under spec'd powersupply keeps everything from churning at the speeds they are touting.

I don't see the coming of the i3 as the new laptop jesus, but they're developing in the right direction now. Less power and more performance will solve a-lot of the issues in the future. Now video card developers need to get on board with this. My nv465 needs 3 power plugs >.<

You're preaching to the choir on this one.

Don't forget, it also requires that you love horrible controls and bad games in general.

How can that be? I used citations from neutral sources!

Not really. Not even remotely, actually.
