Oh wow it looks like they intend for the game to run on potatoes.

Well they did say it would run on low end computers and it looks like they kept their word.

I'm sure its part of their marketing strategy. Some Sims 1 and 2 players who avoided 3 might be tempted to try 4 because it runs on rickety machines and has many favourite elements from both 1 and 2.

I dunno, I have a Macbook Pro (running Boot Camp) with rather mid-level specs in the Windows environment, and I feel like memory may even still be an issue if I were to ever go for 4 (I'm not thinking about it at this point, though I am eyeing the CAS demo). Even as the rest is lower-end than this. XP

Then again, this computer won't let me use all its RAM (it has 4, but it only lets Windows see about half that), I treat this computer horribly, and my dad's computers that are actually from 2006 and stuff have these specs. laugh

Ah. Sort of a disclaimer tweeted. Apparently higher end machines load and run the game faster. Makes you wonder what "slower" is.

Everything they tweet is damage control anymore. rolleyes I'm still sort of excited for this, but only because I was so unimpressed with sims 3 EA could mail me a pair of socks in a box and I would probably think it was an improvement, because at least the socks are useful.... laugh
