Prototype 2 released on consoles in April, and critics and fans alike responded with a resounding, "sure, alright." PC users were left out in the cold at the time, because that's the way some games roll. But if you're suffering the summer doldrums and want in on a decent game, you can pick up the newly-available PC version.
All PC copies include the Radnet Edition extras to boot. The PC version costs $49.99. Activision also detailed the minimum and recommended specs:
- Windows® XP/Vista/7
- Intel Core 2 Duo 2.6 GHz or AMD Phenom X3 8750
- 2 GB Memory
- NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT series with 512 MB RAM or ATI Radeon HD 4850 with 512 MB RAM

Steve Watts posted a new article, Shack PSA: Prototype 2 out on PC today.
Prototype 2 has released on the PC version today, which includes the "Radnet Edition" extras.
I pre loaded this a few days ago it was 10+gigs I wonder what the extra content is?
Anyone try it yet, I will after work for sure?
This game is great, I had so much fun playing it that I obtained 1000/1000 achievements on xbox.
If you liked the 1st one, this one is much better.
Cool I was a fan of #1 so this is good news, hope the quality is good on the PC.
I said this in the last Prototype 2 thread, but man...I really can't buy this game in good conscience at full price since Activision got rid of the studio.
Whenever I buy something at full price, it's because I want that studio to succeed. There's no external influence that makes me want to support Activision and this tendency to gut studios once a project has shipped. :(
I mean, granted...if Radical Entertainment was hemorrhaging money, I'd understand...but I was under the impression that they were a pretty good studio and at least somewhat profitable.
Your heart is in the right place, but consider that the guys who sunk years of their life into making the game would probably much rather you play the game and enjoy and appreciate what they made.
I really liked the first one but with the studio shut down im nervous to get this if it needs a patch or something that may never come.
Need a good PC review of it.
I'm fearing a new The Saboteur :<
I played the first one but didn't really like it enough to get me into a sequel.
