    35 gb is insanity.
    Still, it's a great game, great graphics, everything about it is great!

        How do you think my PC will fare with Max Payne 3?

        Intel Core2Quad Q8400 @ 3.4GHz
        nVidia GTX 460 768mb overclocked
        4GB DDR2 RAM

        GTA IV runs like absolute crap and I fear that this game might as well.

          @SuperStar617 Because IV was not really a good port.. while MP3 won't even be a port but optimized for PC (parallel development)
          So yeah, your system can handle this.. probably on highest settings.

          @FreeX7 Not on highest maybe medium-high.

        I noticed someone said they do not trust Rockstar Games on PC? we have 10 years playing RS Games on PC multiple formats i.e. Retail Disc and Steam Digital DL. Any problems RSG immediatly fixed as far as I remember. I do not think I have ever seen a game more thought through, than Max Payne 3. I say that playing games since 1997 [pong] to 1st person shooters starting with doom in 1996. They just keep getting better with age and the original underdogs of gaming are now the KingPins of the video game industry. I always pity the fools, who took RockStar Games by their cover and underestimated their vision!

        Hey Rockstar will we be able to pre-load Max Payne 3 on steam?
        because 30GB is an awful lot to download and id like to play this on day one
        • Lord_Draconon May 7 2012, 10:57amReplyFlag
          The game will have a 64-bit version? How it will handle more than 2 GB of RAM?
          • Thincruston May 6 2012, 5:40amReplyFlag
            I think this was confirmed before, I asked support but got no answer. Will the PC version support the xbox360 controller? Or will we just have to use the keyboard and mouse? Thanks.

                what the f***?
                35G... so will GTA V need too more? or 58G?

                  Still don't dig this 35 GB. Does it have 4096 kbps audio and 1080p video?
                  • VBProjecton May 1 2012, 5:28amReplyFlag
                    Right answer:
                    3: Retail has neither GFWL or Steamworks (like LA Noire DRM scheme).

                    That's the best option.

                      I have a high end PC (Intel Core i7 930,6GB RAM,GTX570) but i believe will be unoptimized.
                      I don't trust Rockstar for PC.
                      Already pre ordered from November the special edition for XBOX 360.
                      XBOX 360 FTW!

                        Rockstar please can you address the DRM issue as many of us want to know this before pre-ordering is it either:

                        1: GFWL for retail copies only (my favorite choice).

                        2: Steamworks for Steam purchased copies only.

                        3: Retail has neither GFWL or Steamworks (like LA Noire DRM scheme).

                        Some of us prefer GFWL, some Steamworks (most want neither though!) Please clear this up you obviously know the answer with a month to go!!!

                        Thank You
