    AMD with how many cores, 2, 4, 6?
    512 mb Video RAM could be a problem, so you need to turn off MSAA and switch to low detail textures.

    Will it support XP x64? Also, will it support PAE for normal XP? Any plans for supporting OpenGL? It would be sweet to be able to run the equivalent of DX 10/11 (OpenGL 3/4) graphics in plain vanilla XP. As you might guess my rig has 8 Gbytes and an nvidia 630 w/4gb :D But I resist the urge to upgrade windows >_<

    The game should run on Windows XP 64bit, but there will be no OpenGL support.

    Thank you very much :D

    Which is a crying shame since DirectX is a dead-end; there will be no DirextX 12

    4 GB RAM (Vista, 7, 8) seems a little high for minimum memory requirements. Games like X-COM: EU, ES: Skyrim, Deus Ex: HR, The Witcher 2 and Diablo III do not require that much memory.

    D3 is a PC exclusive, it wasn't developed for consoles.

    D3 is coming to consoles, whether it was developed with it in mind and affected D3 is arguable but I guess this is not the place to discuss it.

    Unfortunately this is very unlikely.

    So far Steam is the only distribution method I've seen mentioned on the Chaos Chronicle website. Will Chaos Chronicles be available for purchase from a DRM-free distributor like GOG.com? This game looks awesome but I hate DRM.
