Batman: Arkham Asylum PC Requirements Revealed

Publisher Eidos has released the system requirements for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Asylum, in the form of message board post by an official Eidos moderator.
    • CPU: Intel single core 3 Ghz or AMD equivalent
    • Memory: XP = 1 GB, Vista = 2GB
    • GPU: Shader Model 3 NVidia 6600 or ATI 1300 or higher

Thanks to Shacker Alpha for the tip.

    So... from the looks of things (particularly the recommended specs), pretty much a straight X360 to PC port.

      I wouldn't make those claims till you at least played both.. But it requires GFWL. Ill be getting it on ps3 now.

        To clarify, I mean no enhancements. They probably have adapted the controls (though they also probably support slapping in an X360 controller) but by the recommended specs, they seem to be recommending basically PC-equivalent equipment to what current gen consoles have which usually, from, experience, means the graphics are a rather straight port with the ability to boost the rez and *maybe* add AA or AF.

        Not unexpected really and not bad- AA seems like it could be one of those few games where it doesn't need to be anymore than a basic port. Purely a neutral observation.

      If it players like it still does on the PC with a 360 controller like on the 360 console then it's a decent port in my eyes. It'll automatically be better since a PC suited for gaming will look nicer and played at a higher resolution.

        Yeah, that's fine. Like I said, my statement was supposed to be a neutral acknowledgment that it is just that- a console port. And ofc that's not always a bad thing (would be happy to have had an X360 port of NHL '09 for the PC instead of the crap they put out instead...).

      It is a direct port with 360 controller support. Don't get it for PC if you don't have a controller, it doesn't play nice at all with a keyboard and mouse =(

        I have a 360 controller working in vista.. I hope they add rumble support.

        I think this will go well with my logitech dual action gamepad :)
