Thanks for making me laugh harder.

You did say it wouldn't tank sales, and I was telling you why it would.  You indeed didn't say anything about what they would do.

 

I see I am among the incredibly easily amused.

Don't worry guys, BF4 will definitively run on Windows 8. This alpha probably doesn't for technical reasons, as in, not yet made to work in W8. Remember, the game is still being developed.

I think BF2 was the last one i really played, i just haven't gotten into this style of game for a while, as i do not care for the online experience and the story is so very short.

Technically there wouldn't be anything to tank since it wouldn't be available in the first place in your hypothetical scenario. I didn't say anything about W8 availability because I thought it is obvious. That and people saying it will be supported every few minutes.

 

The steam survey is not what I asked for. It does not contain any proof "that high end gamers would be more likely to be on or move to the newer OSes". It contains the stats of all the gamers that have happened to take the survey, from low end laptops with IGPs to high end systems with 3xTitans. If you find a way to separate the high end with W7/8 from the rest, I will concede that point. If not, let's a agree to disagree and move on.

It is not a straight answer, no, but it is weighted towards high end gamers since it's been the platform of choice for FPSes and many other AAA games for a long time.

Damn. I didn't know they paid attention to the way trees move in the wind and waves move in the ocean.

Yeah, at times the graphics look very close to BF3, but watching that video there are definitely some huge improvements across the board.

I'd like to point out it was a development, literately unoptimized, build of the game. They even said as much when people were invited to the alpha. It didn't even have most of its textures.

It hasn't been optimized yet. It should be much better once the game is released.
