64bit PC OS – Thanks to Gaming (Frostbite Engine requires 64bit OS)

This isnt a Mac v pc rant but it just goes to show the different mind sets between the 2 users.  Where as the mac has been pushing slowly to a 64bit OS for serveral years, windows has lagged way behind. It’s still not been adopted main stream enough to make real dents in the OS area

Even with the revelation that a 32bit system cant fully read 4gb properly they still make up the lions share (mac pun) of the desktop market.

Leave it to game developers to say upgrade to windows 8 64 bit edition to be able to continue playing our games.

From Johan Andersson,

“We’ll have Frostbite-powered games in 2013 that will _require_ a 64-bit OS. If you are on 32-bit, great opportunity to upgrade to Windows 8,”

    Johan Andersson, sponsored by Microsoft. From what i’ve seen, the Windows 8 UI is fucking awful. Maybe this is finally the push i need for a full time Linux installation with Win7 dual-boot for the odd game I play..
