"Blizzard notes that there will be “incremental tweaks and updates” to the graphics engine in Cataclysm that will require some increases to the game’s minimum system requirements, but it refrained from identifying what those requirements will be." http://www.macworld.com/article/142405/2009/08/cataclysm.html There are alot of people against the idea of having an updated graphics engine. Imo clearly they are clueless of what the next generation of hardware is going to bring. Its not just the performance and new architecture in cards, but the GPU's we know as of today would drop price so much that I can imagine a 4650/70 being under the $70 AUD mark and Nvidia's GTS250 just below 100 AUD. I really don't think blizzard is going to stay in the old times for too long as in 2010 MMO's will be defined with next gen graphics ie. Blade and Soul and T.E.R.A .. What I really think is its about time players have upgraded from the 8 year old rigs they've been using to play this game as it will come at a cheap price. What are your thoughts?
