Saints Row 3 PC System Requirements Announced

We’re less than two weeks from the release of Saints Row: The Third, and as usual, we’re suggesting you play the PC version. Why?

Well for starters, there’s the awesome Saints Video Record Mode. This allows you to record all your mayhem and destruction to show to your friends. Seriously, what could be better than that? You’ll also get free TF2 goodies, and ton of PC features supported.

For example, SR3 supports both SLI and Crossfire. For the more tech savvy among you, you’ll also get support for advanced depth of field, reflections, and ambient occlusion quality. AMD Eyefinity is supported, as well as DirectX 9, 10, and 11.

So the only question left is whether or not your PC can run it. Lucky for you, we’ve got the system requirements right here:

Wow! I extremely surprised the PC is going to get a good console port treatment. I was going to buy this on PS3, but for sure will change that now that I read this.

Walker, I think right now is an strange time for folks trading in oil. Usually you could always be pretty sure that oil prices were going to rise in the future so it was pretty straightforward business. Now it is very hard to know what will happen. Prices could continue to rise but they could also drop considerably with a few quick changes or based on some long-term trends. I tend to disagree that there isn’t a large percentage of genuine uncertainty in that market.
