Devs forcing people to buy new hardware :S
So, people are tripping over themselves because a character said "sh*t"? These people must have never watched TV in their lives.
Oh wait....they have.
Bunch of hypocrites.
No. That's not even close. The character uses the R word as she is verbally abusing him, and accuses him of faking a disability. It's not about a few meaningless swears which is clear from reading the above.
It's bullshit, don't worry. Games nowadays are not using more than 1-2 cores so you could replace that i7 with a Pentium Anniversary Edition (dual-core 75$ cpu) and get the same results.
I'd be very interested to see any evidence you have that backs up your statement.
As far as I am aware, there are games do have up to 4 threads, nowadays. It's hardly surprising that a console-lead game has been optimised for more than just two cores .
