Bioshock: Infinite system specs revealed; also, many PC-friendly features


Clearly my opinion on system specs posts has thus far gone unnoticed by our overlord editor, as such my appointed task of the day is covering the minimum and recommended system requirements of Bioshock: Infinite.

To Irrational’s credit, they’ve gone above and beyond a system specs reveal, they’ve also said what PC friendly features they’ve included (V-sync and the like).

Below the break find out which of your favourite graphics settings have made the cut. Will FOV make the team or will it be left crying on the sidelines? Only one way to find out.

Contain your excitement boys and girls… I said contain it
