Gotta admit that I didn’t see this one coming. Apparently in anticipation of Crysis Warhead, Electronic Arts will be getting into the hardware business with some gaming PCs made to “correspond to Crysis Warhead’s levels of graphical detail, with a likely price range being $600-$800,” according to Remowned.
The rumor was overheard at EA’s Comic-Con booth. A rep for the company apparently mentioned that the PCs would be released alongside Crysis Warhead in order to calm people’s fears that games from Crytek require multi-million dollar machines to run smoothly. I had a hell of a time trying to get Far Cry to run on a 486DX2/66 that I use for gaming, but people have been telling me that it’s time to upgrade anyway.
