I'd say "recommended" would equate as "required" when it comes out, as we've all been down this road before. Still think its' going to have problems porting to the PC apart from specs. I'll pass.

Well, aside from the graphic`s card, my PC might even be able to handle it! But I already have it for 360, so theres not much chance I`m gonna bother with the PC version.

I'm wondering if someone can help. I'm running a 2.6ghz dual core with 2gb of ram and running a Nvidia 9500gt hd card, but when i play mass effect the pixels sometimes appear with black and blue dots around the screen. I don't know what's happening, anyone can help?

My new rig is a monster that can destroy these requirements, but I poured hours into my character in the first game on the 360, and I want to bring her into the next one with her psy powers intact. I don't know what to do.
